    > After spending years as a respected leader of the sovereign mutant nation Krakoa, Cyclops is back on the run. With Krakoa destroyed and humanity ready to oppress mutants again, Cyclops has gone back home to Alaska to refresh and regroup.

    >And yet, things have never been better for Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops. The upcoming From the Ashes relaunch will force the X-Men back into the world after the end of Krakoa in the Fall of X storyline, with a new X-Men book with Cyclops in the lead.

    > “We wanted to start with Cyclops and wanted to bring him back to Alaska,” X-Men writer Jed MacKay tells Den of Geek during an exclusive interview at SXSW. “And from there we started thinking what his mission would be moving forward because he’s Cyclops, he always has the mission.”

    > Working with artist Ryan Stegman (Amazing Spider-Man, Venom), MacKay will bring Cyclops to the home where he lived with his parents and brother Alex until the former’s apparent death. Throughout his life, Cyclops has returned to Alaska to find direction and it comes in the form of his new mission.

    > Despite nearly 15 years of fighting as a mutant revolutionary, even becoming a freedom fighter who gave Magneto pause, Cyke is back doing what he does best: leading a team of mutants that help other mutants live in a world that fears and hates them.

    >“The mutants that he assembles with him are parts of that mission,” explains MacKay. “These are a group of people who are not especially well suited towards simply going back to a normal life in the world.”

      I'll check out the Mackay book only because I've been really loving his Moon Knight series and I think Alaska is quite interesting as a setting. I expect at least an appearance from the Wendigo while they are there.

      "need to"? They have an entire planet with no humans that they can live on
      I don't think that many mutants would want to return to living among humans after being thrown into actual concentration camps

        The goal of the X-Men has always been to integrate mutants with other humans. Charles has been working towards that forever. Krakoa was just a necessity to avoid a specific doomsday scenario. Now that that crisis is averted they can go back to their former aim of integrating with other people.

          Krakoa made sense when Marvel refused to give the assimilation/integration side a fair shake, basically what the X-men were fighting for and instead made it all about how humanity and governments conspiring to get mutants every week. If integration was a dead end as Marvel editorial continued to up the stakes then a mutant Israel was the only logical choice. Which mirrors rl where Israel was only proclaimed in 1948 after the Holocaust where so many of the israelites on the integration side were pretty much murdered.

      I doubt this will be explored in any meaningful capacity, but this is really something to wonder about. The superheroes will be fine, but how does all the civie mutant that wre on krakoa reinsert themselves into society.

        Lol, fricking knew this was going to happen. This shit was inevitable once Marvel tried to tie the stupid gala shit into real life anniversaries for the sake of sales. Gonna be fun to see how they try to explain this shit away, especially cause it means that mutants have been a dominant superpower for a third of the X-men's whole existence.

            Correct, but Marvel is sticking with the idea that the Hellfire Galas are annual anniversaries, so by proxy until they alter that with yet more retcons, then they’ve fixed this chronologically in place at least for the X-men.

If MacKay gets his way, Cyke will only get more attention when he gets back home. Maybe, just maybe MacKay can prove Scott’s worth to the greatest Cyclops hater of all: his fellow writer Gail Simone.

    >Even if he can’t win over Simone, Cyclops can’t complain. Things are still pretty good for Marvel’s most maligned mutant.

      Just mutants existing is a justification for humans to hate them, at least the most powerful ones, there should be a law in the marvel universe to persuade people into aborting babies if they found it is going to a be a mutant, if the parents decide to still have the baby then they'll should be heavily taxed and if their offspring starts committing supercrime or becomes a mutant terrorist the parents are also responsible and would get arrested
