Cyclops falls in love with Madelyne Pryor and marries her.

They later have a son.

Then Jean returns, and Scott's out the door.

Later he marries Jean (the narrator is Xavier).

But once again, Scott can't stay faithful for long.

Never has one image summed up a character as much as this one from Todd Nauck's has.

That is totally one of my favorite pieces of fanart.

I sort of like Emma/Scott, but I also sort of want Emma to get out before Scott breaks her heart.

My friend likes his movie counterpart. The moment I knew about his love history, I gave up on introducing her into comics...

You forgot how under Scott's tenure as head of the institute it has become more insular, xenophobic, isolated from and militaristic towards from the world their mission statement suposedly they want acceptanceand integrate into.

Also Alex trying to mack Mady when Cyke went back to Jean.

But yeah Scott's a douche, actually both Summers brother's are douches, Cable hasn't been kind to the women in his life either... must be something in the blood.

Yea this and the way he went out in X-Men 3 have made me like Scott less and less. He may be a strong leader but as a man...wow. He's worthy of being one of the losers on a talk show.

And this is the sort of character I could get behind- I love flawed characters and ships that are bad for everyone involved- if they'd just present his flaws as flaws. Instead they have him do all this and still seem to expect me to buy him as the clean cut guy he used to be, and I can't do that.

I don't actually have anything relevant to say, but that gif synced up perfectly with a punching sound effect from a movie in the next room.

Corsair seems to have been a fine fellow, though. At least to his lovers... The whole 'being a space pirate and sort of orphaning the boys' thing is a bit of a mark against him.

... Y'know, that Nauck piece, Rachel's presence, and the whole...ambiance of the image just makes me think...well. ('Don'chu judge me!' makes it worse...)

To be fair, would YOU want to be related to the Summers?

Plus, being a space pirate's gotta be at least 23% more interesting than being an X-person.

I dunno about more interesting. But certainly SAFER.

(Actually, I couldn't remember the circumstances of the split, so thanks for the reminder.)

I think American entertainment in general could use a good long look at its morals. I'm not talking about gratuitous sex and violence - those can at least be regarded as over the top and foolish. But there is a lot of behavior in comic books, television, and movies that is downright immoral but which is constantly presented as morally justified by the writers and creative teams.

Scott Summers is a very interesting character(at least during Morrison's run). I never thought I would say that about the douchebag from the X-men cartoons and the stubbly douchebag from the X-men movies, but I find him incredibly fascinating in New X-men. The way his one-dimensional battle mindset is played for "icy cold zen lunacy", the charmardie between him and Hank/Logan, becoming more and more cold towards Jean(even though he always loves her) and he tries to take a step out of the "boy scout" handle he's been struck with. Just like the line in the post above where Emma tells him to stop being such an old superhero, "But I've never been allowed to be anything else..."

Scott's visor and Emma's diamond form are perfect metaphors for who they are; flawed people who hold everything back so they won't get hurt. Scott/Emma were a very intersting couple for awhile until Emma lost all her wit and is now simply Scott's telepathic bitch. Take out the occasional "Darling" and you could just replace Jean in the role.

Personally I can watch Scott get punched in the stomach for hours. And if anything will turn a devoted housewife into a Goblin-banging witch, its being dumped for your identical twin/cell donor/self/whatever.

You go Madelyne Pryor. You go hard. Years later she'd get her revenge at Seattle Grace. -icons-

before the writers screw him up you mean. Not one of those breakups have made sense with previous characterization IMO. Totally editiorially forced and not even slightly organic.

Jean and Emma are too interesting for this man.

I used to really like him, too!

It's a Grey's Anatomy joke...They way they introduced McDreamy's Ex into the whole love triangle...Good reference, killer icon...

More than that but...its more fun to imagine that Madelyne was reborn as Addison Montgomery. In my world at least.

I agree with you so damn much on this. Tony and Reed also fall into that trap hard.
