    They are scientists/explorers who were transformed into superhuman beings. All the movies got that right. And everything else is just details.

    I think it's easy to forget what a great character he truly is.

    :eek: Now there's a team that could be dangerous unless they ended up killing each other after ten minutes together.

    Longshot is awesome. I loved his Limited Series. He does, however, feel like a character of a very specific period. I think they were right to write him out during the Australia-era. At some point he...

    I don't think an origin story is necessary at this point. Just give some exposition that explains their existence for people unfamiliar with the comics or previous films. The best suggestion I've...

    Overall I enjoyed the characters and the mood in the original films. Sue and Doom felt miscast. Sue because, as mentioned, Alba doesn't exactly make a convincing scientist. I didn't mind it too much,...

    I didn't answer the poll. As I'm sure it has already been mentioned there's really no way to reliably measure this. At this point we're down to counting game appearances and refering to the gaming...

    If I have to choose, Wolverine and Cyclops. Not the most original choices, I guess, and they have both definitely suffered from inconsistent writing and overexposure over the years. But I really like...

    I'm not sure removing Cyke's most recognizable visual characteristic would be a good idea.

    I agree. If Whedon just wanted to write scenes with Cyclops without his powers, he could have easily used the "Cure" as a way to do it.

    Why would we dislike him for being an X-man? We like the X-Men. There are lot of valid reasons to not like Scott. However I don't think the fact that he has dedicated his life to looking after his...

    That actually feels in-character to me. What I've always liked about Cyclops was that he was a geek with poor social skills and self-esteem issues who was thrust into a position of leadership.

    Cyclops. I like Storm but I generally prefer the more flawed characters. That's why I loved her mohawk-era. It was the only time I didn't find her to be a bit too boringly perfect.

    I think they were portrayed as former lovers in the animated series. In the comics her beef with Logan has always been gloriously irrational.

    Maybe it's better to get the more obvious ones out of the way early. Then we can focus on the more interesting and original comparisons. Has there ever been, say, a 'Kurt vs Storm' or a 'Kitty vs...

    I'm not familiar with either of those characters but you kind of make me want check them out. I guess this is a good place to recommend other works of fiction to Cyclops-fans. I'm open to...

    Rogue.

    I get the appeal of Gambit but I have never really been able to warm up to him. He's just too stereotypically cool. It always felt like they were trying too hard.

    :D It has always amused me that the only ones in the classic Scott/Jean/Logan love triangle I think have real chemistry are Scott and Logan.

    I think a flirty friendship and unresolved sexual tension between Jean and Scott might work better than an actual romantic relationship.

    I don't really care what Scott Summers' hair looks like when he's off-duty but his superhero costume should include a cowl. Unless it's they're going for a more civilian look like during Morrison's...

    I prefer the cowl-look. Probably because in terms of characterization I prefer the intense, driven, broody take on Cyclops more than the "all-American hero" take.
