Re: Where has Scott Summers gone?
Scott Summers is dead.
I hate it just as much as the next man, but unfortunatley, he's gone.
The reason it was done off screen was not to leave an out or anything like that, it was done for 1 purpose; suspense. "What did Jean do to him? What's going on?" And then her true power is revealed later during her battle with Xavier, and we see what she does to him, and it's like "Holy ****! That's what she did to Cyclops too!"
We're just warped here on the boards because we knew beforehand Cyclops was getting killed, so there was no suspense in the matter. We didn't have a "Um... what the hell?" moment. We had "Okay, Cyclops dies, check. Next scene..."
