Every X-Men ranked from weakest to strongest

Good or bad, there are X-Men with incredible powers and abilities out there, but there can only be one to take the number one spot.

10. Cyclops

Let's dive into why Cyclops, aka the guy with the killer sunglasses, ranks as the 10th mightiest mutant in the X-Men movie roster.

Scott Summer, aka Cyclops, is the dude who can't stop shooting laser beams from his eyes unless he's got his special glasses on. Sounds like a party trick, right? But it's not just any light show - we're talking about beams so powerful they can cut through almost anything. So, why isn't he higher up on the list, you ask? Well, let's get into it.

First off, Cyclops is like the quarterback of the X-Men team. He's got leadership skills that make Captain America look like he's just playing pretend. But when it comes to raw power, well, that's where things get a bit tricky. His optic blasts are off the charts in terms of firepower, but unlike his teammates further up the list, Cyclops unfortunately doesn't have much in the way of versatility. He's literally a one-trick pony in a circus full of magical unicorns. Plus, in the high-stakes world of mutant mayhem, being able to take a punch is just as important as being able to throw one, and unfortunately, Cyclops falls a bit short in the durability department.

So, there you have it - Cyclops, the laser-eyed leader with a lot of heart and even more firepower, lands at a solid number 10 because while he's incredibly strong, in a team of mutants with abilities ranging from controlling the weather to bending metal, he's a bit of a specialist in a field of generalists.
