For me Cyclops will always be the true leader, it just seems right.

as well as Cyke being the original leader in the comics, outside of the comics he's always appeared as the leader, like in the classic cartoon, or the video games. Storm's original tenure as leader in the 80s comics was a fun era, but Scott, Jean and Xavier returning in 1991 was much welcomed. I like Storm too obviously along with all the classic characters, but I like Cyclops a lot more.

@jhazzroucher: There is also the indifferent emotion. That’s mostly where I am.

@pyrofn: That’s okay, Pyro. We all know you want Gabby to lead the team.

I still love Storm but she was annoying for joining and sometimes leading the hate bandwagon against Scott. I'm glad the Storm only votes are the lowest

@supermanthor: That's pretty much subjective based on the writer, and then who one considers the best written is opinion.

Cyclops was terrible in the hands of most writers. When done right, he worked. Same with Storm.

I think they tried really hard to deconstruct Scott, which really did push his character further. Most people didn't like it, but I do respect the leadership, tactica, powers and mortality of Scott Summers as he went in and out of being the boy scout, to a mostly justified renegade.

Storm however... I understand she's a very popular character. A very iconic character, a beloved character, a powerful character, and largely beloved in most of her appearances. I however, don't rate her very high. Very rarely do I get an impression of what makes Storm a unique character, nor has she been written in a particularly compelling way. I respect the history of the character, but accept that there is practically nothing that can be done to make me like the character.

@hopesummersforthefuture: No, I am a fan of good character development, Jean, and Emma.

jean and emma are ying and yang......

jean is the original story "good girl gone bad"(Rihanna reference)

emma is a bad girl gone good-ish? aka catwomen, black cat, scarlett witch, etc

If reading a team book I would rather read one with Cyclops now if if we are reading a solo I would rather read a Storm Solo. I love both and voted both however character wise I think you can do more with storm considering her weather powers, goddess status and Mystical heritage. However Cyclops fits better on a team and is can be better used than Storm on a team book.

Which could mean there are more Cyclops fans who don't like Storm?
