As an X-Men fan I have never understood this. Half the time to me he comes off as either bland and uninteresting or as a jerk. In fact the only time I can say I REALLY enjoyed him as a character and actually liked him was in X-Men Evolution. So why DO people like him?
Opinions, why does anyone like Storm she rarely uses her powers and is in pretty mediocre books most of the time, why would you like Wolverine, he killed many is a jackass to anyone, and a horrible "professor X", Kitty Pryde left Collussus in a heartbeat for Iceman and is a less effiecent Emma Frost, I can go on, but people like what they like end of story.
I personally like Cyclops in a many in carnations other than the X-men movies and the anime. He is the only (succesful) leader in comics that will do what it takes to succeed, the way he acts to other x-men is justified, some are douchebags that need to stay focussed others need a leader that isn't gonna baby them and actually train them to survive in a world that hates and fears them.
I wanna see some previews before I judge. Comics and Movies are a different medium, and the majority of people won't care whom plays whom as long the movie is good. Also, if the guy can't beat Chris Evans as JS than no he is not worthy and Fox will have wasted my time and money.
Scott and Jean are over, unless you mean Young Scott and Young Jean which could work out in some alternate timeline... Scott and Emma for me, since both of them complete eachother and look good together. No one in their past can bring the interesting dynamic. Also, I can't support Magik and Scott because it's basically Phoenix tomfollery except qith demons and dark magic in lew of cosmic chickens and Magik is just too young, (qnd Bendis believes she is a 9 year old girl in an older teen body.)
Had to post after seeing, "The series has fluctuated from bad to good, so what needs to happen to make this series more consistent?" Fire the writers, hire the new or older PG/ Huntress writers, (hell even Winick is better), that fling PG has or had with Mr. Terrific can stop too, his book sucked also. I want a mature Powergirl and a not so sheltered Huntress, Maybe Geoff Johns and (bare with me)Gail Simone could write these books could do a better job seeing as his JSA is Solid, He is the Alpha and Omega of the GL book, Shazam is great and Gail is very good with Birds of Prey which has Huntress.
I'm a true Dc fanboy. After having a choice between a number of 15 trades from Dc, Marvel, Vertigo, Image, and Darkhorse I ended up picking all Dc books. 3 Green Lantern books, 4 Green Arrow books, 2 Birds of Prey, and the rest are JLA and JSA books. I wanted to get some X-men or Fantastic Four, but I my eyes didn't catch them until it was too late.
Anywho, what are some stories about comics you just had to have?
