It’s really weird what they did with Cyclops the last decade or so.
Pre- Morrison Cyclops was my absolute favourite Marvel character, for pretty obvious wish fulfilment reasons.
I wasn’t overly enamoured with what Grant did to the character, but I did enjoy him getting his moment in the spotlight in the Messiah Complex/ Fraction/ early Gillen era.
Then, suddenly, he became the Tony Stark of the Mutant universe. The unsympathetic side of the X-Men Civil War. And there was no coming back from that.
Tony needed to literally be rebooted, and have Robert Downey Junior come along to save him. Cyclops wasn’t so lucky.
That being said, having “O5” Cyclops kicking around these days as a result almost (almost) makes it all worth it.
