From Marvel Comics and the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (writer) and Chris Bachalo (pencils), Uncanny X-Men #32 is the beginning of Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops rebirth from mutant terrorist to mutant hero. With the death of Xavier and the reading of his will by the She Hulk, along with the time altering adventure to save the X-Men and world from an uncontrollable Omega level mutant, Scott Summers it seems, has finally come to his senses again.
The Scott Summers who was always a rock of unbreakable strength, vision, heroic action and morality is finally back, or at least it seems that he is indeed on the road to redemption with the help of his mutant brother, Havok, a.k.a. Alex Summers. While it seems that everyone is now quite upset with Scott Summers, including his new mutant students of the New Xavier School and his hot mutant lover, Emma Frost, a.k.a. the White Queen, Cyclops is no longer a threat to humanity as a mutant terrorist and it would seem has taken the first steps toward once again becoming worthy of Charles Xavier’s love.
What was great about this issue was not the action as there was none, but rather seeing Scott and Alex Summers reunited and working together to begin to build Xavier’s dream of human and mutant peaceful coexistence once again. Perhaps the best thing about this issue was a return to what everyone always loved about Cyclops, which was in many ways his unwavering faith and moral fortitude that seemed to not only define the X-Men, but what it also meant to be a HERO.
Welcome back Scott Summers, and while we enjoyed seeing your dark side from time to time, it is so nice to have you back where you belong! Now we just need to tune in next issue in order to see just how bright of an idea the Summers brothers came up with in order to once again champion Xavier’s promise of a better and brighter future for tomorrow’s mutant population.
