Love him or hate him, you have to acknowledge that Cyclops is one of the most important characters in the X-Men’s universe. He’s their leader, he’s their glue, he’s the driving force that puts Charles Xavier’s dream of co-existence into action… and he got killed off in a five-minute scene. The X-Men without Cyclops is like the Avengers without Captain America; Scott Summers often gets saddled with the “bland” adjective only because he’s morally unwavering in his devotion to the cause.
