When will we get a movie that does Cyclops justice? He wasn’t a scrub, he wasn’t some weenie. Cyclops is legit. He knows his teammates’ tendencies, strengths, and weaknesses. He’s destroyed Master Mold by himself. He’s blasted the utter shit out of both Apocalypse and Sinister. He’s defeated Shadowcat, Lockheed, Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Rogue, and Colossus before. By himself. Hell, just for the hell of it, he’s blasted the life out of a Sentinel because he “wanted this thing off his lawn.”
I know that writers have turned him into some lame ass with zero personality and no skills. But there’s a reason Scott Summers is the leader of the X-Men.
And for the record, there’s no longstanding"rivalry" with Wolverine and Scott. Not sure why that came up or how Hollywood decided that was a thing to do, but that’s a recent thing.
Long story short, Scott Summers is a badass.
