Honestly, the best thing Cyclops fans can do is to just not buy this series. It's destroying the character, and it doesn't even remotely make any sense. It's different if this was a well-crafted epic that slowly tore Cyclops down, in the manner of Born Again, but it's not. It's just illogical garbage, written by a guy who read the first issue of Uncanny X-Men and didn't want to read anymore, so he brought that cast into the future. It's lazy writing. It's offensive crap, and you have to, HAVE TO stop buying it if you ever want Cyclops to be treated as a character ever again. Instead of just another foil for modern Logan.
I gotto agree with you there, As I have already stated it in other posts, time-travel is a bad idea. You dont mess around with history. And history has a very bad habit of repeating itself, something that Marvel writers cannot grasp.
And honestly, Cyclops is a guy who has usually gotten the short end of the stick the most often in Marvel. He's known for, what ? shooting lasers out of his eyes ? OK. Leader of the X-Men ? no-one cares are they're all busy drooling over Wolverine's badassery. He had a permanently damaging accident in childhood and was an orphan. He accidentaly married a clone of his one true love, and had to send his son away after he was infected with a techno-organic virus, then his clone wife tries to destroy the whole universe and dies. Then when he marries the real Jean, Apocalypse messes with his mind and ruins his marriage then his wife dies. That's why I'm rooting for him all the time, he's the underdog.
Now, Marvel have made him their new scapegoat for a cause that I think Cyclops is justified. The guy's decisions are usually for the best. And his younger version is shit on by everyone for just being young Scott, while he loses leadership of the X-Men and now all of Marvel History might be destroyed due to this.
Jeez, cut the poor guy some slack.
