- After all the years of being with the X-Men you would think Cyclops would have by now realized you cannot force the general public or the powers that be to accept you, respect you, only fear you.

- When the X-Men opened themselves up to the world and said here we are, accept us, things have not gotten any better, and the body count of teammates and students began to pile up. The X-Mansion destroyed over and over, busloads of student murdered on their front lawn, attacked constantly even with 200 mutants at their disposal, why is this team going to change anything?

- If anything Cyclops direction and ego (best shown by his comments in UXM 1) are drawing more attention to them in the worst way possible, the face of the X-Men now includes Magneto, Namor, and the White Queen, all PR nightmares. The X-Men have always had a bullseye on their back and are now making it bigger and bigger with little chance of upside.

- If Cyclops really wanted to save the mutant race he would return to the shadows no matter how much they may despise what they would think of as a step back. Their numbers are dwindling, their remaining numbers divided, and no matter how powerful a team he fields, he cannot play chicken with all their real and potential enemies and win.

- I kind of agree

- Cyclops seems to be tired of waiting for the powers that be in the world to give the X-Men a seat at the table and instead wants to force them into it.

- It is a very high risk maneuver, and some of the names on the team (Magneto, Namor) are sure to not only cause fear, but also make trust in the team debatable.

- As a team alone they are a massive power, but in the grand scheme of the Marvel U they can be taken down just like any prior X-Team. If Cyclops continues on the ego trip he has been shown (especially in his dialogue from UXM 1) the already nervous humanity is going to act badly (based on prior events) and in any end scenario the X-Men lose, they cannot take on the world alone

Why did it take 5 years for someone on Utopia to realize and speak up about how screwed they are under Cyclops
