The redemption of Scott Summers

Scott Summers went through a lot before he died: The decimation of the mutant race (thanks, Scarlet Witch), the mansion being destroyed (again), the schism between him and Wolverine, the fight with the Avengers, and killing his father and mentor while he possessed by the Phoenix Force. Death may have come as a mercy considering everything he’d been through. That said, Cyclops is the heart and soul of the X-Men, and this series doesn’t work without him in the long run.

Wolverine may be the most popular of the X-Men, but Cyclops is the leader. He needs to be the one in charge, making all the tough decisions no one else is willing to make. Cyclops is aware that people don’t like him, but he doesn’t care. He knows what it means to be in charge. Unfortunately, before he died, Cyclops caused a lot of chaos. He did things that hurt the mutant community to the point that even one of the former X-Men turned Morlock, Chamber, is mad at him.

In this series, Cyclops is going to redeem himself and bring the X-Men back together. If the X-Men are going to be a team or a family again, it has to start with him. He and Wolverine patched things up (with very few words), and now, it’s time for Cyclops to do what he does best — lead mutants into the future.
