I love the scene of Wolverine marching up to Jean to finally destroy her (I think it's one of the most powerful, most epic, and all around best scenes in the trilogy), but even that could have been so much better had it been Cyclops.

At the very least, they should have re-worked the beginning of the movie to have Cyclops leading the team in the Danger Room. Instead of the back and forth between Wolverine and Storm, the exchange between Wolverine and Cyclops could have been in the subbasement. Back in his room, he could have had the vision of Jean, and then he could have left the mansion, either without saying anything to anyone, or having a quick talk with Xavier (to at least explain that he's being haunted by her calling out to him, and that he's not just a whiney *****). At least if it were set up like that, we could have at least seen him in uniform, leading the team, one final time before he died.
It was Kinbergs and Penn's idea remember? They pretty much admitted they did it to prove how dangerous Jean is. The problem with your logic of Cyclops leading them in the Danger Room still shows how weak he is.

We see him lead in the sessions and leaves them when they need him the most? If Cyclops had to die they could've killed him off as a hero in the final battle and not in the most lamest way.

Now that I think about it a restart sounds just fine with me now. Kinberg, Penn, and Rothman all wanted Cyclops gone. Which is a shame since neither of them gave Jimmy a chance.

Scott should have died in the heat of battle and asked Wolverine to kill Jean...that way Fox lets Wolverine still be the star and Cylcops gets the screen time he deserves. He should have went to Jean's house with Xavier, Logan, and Storm...that would have been a very powerful scene...Scott watching the woman he loves destroying the man that became their father and mentor. Wolverine and Juggernaut could have easily been fighting and Cylcops blasts through Arclight and/or Quills. IMO that one extra scene with Scott could have made a huge friggin difference.

For my X3 rewrite, there will most likely be a flashback to the first X-Men. Here is a concept Cyclops in that suit. It's just a concept, so it's not extremely clean or detailed. I figured if anyone would appreciate it, it'd be you guys.

Yeah that would have been much much better. It would not have to be a death scene tho, maybe he would be seriously injured.....but the "death" could be another cliff hanger to X4 where he returns. Just let Cyke have more screen time!

Well, well, well.

Leave for a couple of days and there's new Cyke thread. Something about 20k posts, too. Roxor.

Cyke PWNZ.


As for the discussion...

Sigh.

1 - As if.

2 - I'm honestly afraid that if they bring him back, he'll get screwed just the same.

Like, let's say, he's found/brought back by Hellfire/Sinister (whatever). Baddies let him loose and then he'll get his a$$$ kicked by the VERY FIRST MUTANT he encounters. Just because.

Posted on the old thread what I thought would be a nice treatment of a 'Cyke resurrected as abaddies' tool'... Problem is, Cyke actually gets to do something useful and, omg, he's not a cardboard cutout.

And that's a big no-no in the movieverse, it would seem...

I haven't been here in a while. A new thread and everything and I'm missing out! Anywho, I'm pretty sure Hugh has competition when it comes to musicals.

I don't see any reason (s)he's got to complain about, everyone ever hearing James sing knows he's a wonderful singer, just because Hugh can sing doesn't necessarily mean there's no one just as good or even better than him.

The reason I said this is because recently I mentioned "Why did Fox neglect Marsden over Hugh? Why didn't they give Marsden a chance?" She took it as me bashing Hugh and got all upset because she feels Hugh will propose to her if she defends him.

In other words with you saying "Looks like Hugh has some competition coming up" she'll take it as you bashing Hugh.

Here's some videos of James singing on Ally McBeal. I know they were probably posted in the old thread, but why not hear them and see them again?



Damn, he does have an amazing voice. This is the first time I've heard him sing and I'm just blown away.

So following your own logic, I guess you´re just waiting James to propose to you.

Nope. The difference between you and I is I don't have an unrealistic creepy crush on an actor and feel personally insulted when someone isn't insulting him.

Besides I'm a male, why would I want another male proposing to me? Get your mind out of the gutter.

Yeah...you have an unrealistic creepy crush on a character.
The worst thing about you is that you´re a mysoginist. If any woman defends the character/actor she admires, she´s downright hysteric. It´s only some stupid "crush". If a man does the same, he´s just playing the role of "guardian of comics´ integrity". Pathetic.
Besides, I don´t give a damn if you´re a man or a woman, if you had a crush on a guy I wouldn´t care less...

Yeah... either way, LastSunrise1981, you had no right to instigate with the first hit and then continue with those accusations. And, though I can understand why you're offended, you, Loganbabe, shouldn't continue with the discussion. This thread is for discussing Cyclops - so let us do just that.

I am going to say this one last time. I didn't do anything wrong at all. In the beginning all I did was post pictures of Jimmy as Cyclops and posted some information. In the process of that all I said was "Why didn't Fox give Jimmy a chance? Why did they choose to hype up Hugh and not give Jimmy a chance?"

That was all I said. Like 5 minutes later she comes in and attacks me because according to her I was bashing Hugh. So when a fellow poster mentioned that Hugh might have some competition with James singing, I warned him/her as Loganbabe seems to get defensive if someone isn't praising Hugh.

I didn't instigate or start anything. She started it and ruined a perfectly intelligent thread about James and Cyclops in general.

This is the final time I'll discuss the subject.

Wrong. Danoyse also likes Hugh Jackman, but guess what? I tolerate her and actually find her to be a great and cool person. You, on the other hand, you are a different story as you are very rude and insult anyone who happens to respect James or is a Cyclops fan.

I don't care if you are a Logan fan. But you've already admitted you're not a Cyclops fan and could careless about the comics or James Marsden. So again, why are YOU here? At least Danoyse is intelligent and is easy speak with.

"Tolerate"...that´s one of the funniest things I´ve read here today.
Oh well, I´ll just leave you with your prejudices...

Obviously these aren't the pictures you were asking for, but I found these to be pretty damn cool pictures of Cyclops.

Deviant art has some pretty cool pics.

I'll find them.

I'll post the link not the pic, out of respect for the artists.

I too wouldn't like my stuff being taken and posted on message boards.

And you spent a good deal of time wasting space on these boards making those same accusations about me before that light finally went on and you realized that yes, I am a great and cool person.

I think this whole back-and-forth between you and Loganbabe is a whole misunderstanding and should just drop...but just quit making the "unrealistic crush" jabs and accusing people of not reading the comics when clearly they do.

You keep doing that, and it's the reason people jump on your case even when you're not trying to slam anyone...which is what I think happened here.

OK, everyone go back to loving Cyclops now (and I mean that honestly ). I'm going to go read my new Weapon X book that I got before I finally saw "Casino Royale" tonight.
