Off My Mind: Could the Red Skull be Controlling Cyclops?

Ever sense Scott broke out of jail he seems to be making more and more radical choices and doing things that don't seem characteristic even for him. Scott's current actions seem to be leading the world towards a Mutant vs Human war. The Red Skull wants to start a war with Humans and Mutants, so sense he now has the powers of Professor X it wouldn't be very hard to manipulate Scott in order to achieve this. There is also the fact that Magneto is the only person on the team who doesn't believe in what Scott is doing and doesn't want him to continue on the way he is. Magneto is often wearing his helmet that he created with the purpose of blocking Professor X's telepathy, so what if he is the only member of the Uncanny X-Men Red Skull can't influenced, and the rest of them are all being subtlety controls by mental suggestions. Emma Frost has also lost her psychic powers, so she wouldn't be able to tell that this was happening. I feel like there are enough clues that it could be a real possibility.

No, Cyclops is an evil extremist and he'll die soon, so that another good guy can become evil and take his place.

Having him controlled by Red Skull or Sublime would only reduce culpability, and since Cyclops isn't loved or understood by anyone currently writing an X-Men comic, it means he's Satan.

@FadeToBlackBolt: Idk I think the All New X-Men writer has a thing for Cyclops.

@Teerack: Bendis, and he does. He hates Cyclops. Cyclops is a subtle and quiet character, and Bendis loves loud, shallow, stupid characters. It's why Cyclops is evil and Wolverine is Buddha now.

Could go father back then that. Apocalypse took his body at one point. It was assumed to be gone but Cyke suffered from some deep depression for a while and then cheated (mentally) on his wife. Following this, when he was watching his people die out, he did get pretty intense, then of course a cosmic entity started to corrupt his mind. Could be there's still a splinter of him in there that's been awaked more after god-like power entered into Cyclops . The whole "Mutants are the greatest" mentality of Cyclops is relatively new. Could be Mr. Survival-of-the-Fittess, Apocalypse, still has a tiny splinter inside Cyclops' head.

@fadetoblackbolt:Yes,bendis hates cyke,only whedon treated him with some respect.It's unfair,if Scott's character were described/controlled by stan lee,he would have a greater place .

@fadetoblackbolt:Cyclops is evil;You kiddin'?You're dumb if you don't understand the sacrificies he made to save his kind,He is a leader and savior not who YOU claim him to be/.

@teerack: Really,cyclops actions;From some pics i've seen,storm has also declared to her fellow mutants that they will have war with humans.Why all go on cyke;All the x-men tried to conquer new york during last issues,not just cyke.

@vitalius: @laryking: You are both responding to a theory that was talking about what was going on in the marvel universe two years ago. Look at the date this was post lol.

No. I don't think he's being controled.

And if anything I agree with him. Lets look at the facts. For decades mutants have fought for their place in the world, they even fought against those that would secure that place by other means. And for what?! A pat on the back and punch in the gut. NO THANK YOU!

Everybody likes to point out that he's gone rogue, insane, or purely evil, but he's neither of those things. At least has I see it.

When we spend half our lives fighting for something that should not have been fought, it changes a person. It was simply that. He had enough! Enough of not having a voice, an opinion in the matters that affected the lives of every mutant on Earth.

When the Scarlet Witch almost single handly extinguished the mutant race, after all was revealed, funny that no one demanded her head on a plate. Not the Avengers, not even the mutants. And now because finally a mutant rised up and said "Enough talking! We'll take what's rightfully ours." Then that person is insane or some extremist that has to be put down like a rabid dog.
