From Marvel Comics and the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (writer) and Kris Anka (artist), Uncanny X-Men #28 is a good issue which helps to remind mutant loving Marvel readers just what kind of caring and decent mutant/hero Scott Summer is, while also serving to document Cyclops march toward not just the coming mutant revolution, but his pivotal role in it.
This issue not only serves to illustrate those very foundational building blocks Xavier laid in teaching and mentoring Scott Summers along with the rest of the X-Men, but also the meaning behind all of the professor’s morals, visions and hopes when he created the X-Men in the first place; meanings which seem to be eroding and crumbling all around todays mutant population.
Cyclops is able to get through to and rescue an Omega level mutant who SHIELD and the Avengers clearly need to contain or exterminate as the danger to our world is very real should the mutant’s powers prove uncontrollable. While Cyclops seems to genuinely care about saving the very scared and powerful mutant, he is also clearly thinking about adding the mutant’s abilities to his own arsenal in what he seems to clearly believe will be the eventual mutant revolution, in which all mutants must rise and claim what is rightfully theirs, rather than simply continue to be misunderstood, hunted and killed by the human race.
This was a good Uncanny X-Men tale with good art and a great story!
