Trevor --Staying with the original five, what’s going on with Cyclops?
How can a man that spent so many years trying to create a relationship with Jean
Grey move on so quickly after her death? What is in the future for Cyclops that
the fans can look forward too?
Mike Marts --Scott
Summers has quite possibly endured more than any other X-Man ever has—Jean Grey
included. He’s seen the love of his life die—twice. He has seen rosters change,
teammates perish, his mentor abandon him…and all the while, he’s been able to
lead the X-Men through every battle, always carrying the weight of the world on
So I guess what I’m trying to say is—give the guy a break!
He’s been through so much, so let’s all be a little content with the fact that
he’s finally found some happiness and stability in his life. And if that means
resting in the arms of the White Queen, one of the X-Men’s oldest adversaries,
so be it!
Trevor --Talking about Scott and Jean brings up
an excellent time for a question that poster (JoshuaChayne) wrote at our forum.
Whedon has said before, in reference to the Scott and Emma relationship, that
every man should fall for the wrong woman at least once. In another interview
John Cassaday, again in reference to Scott and Emma, said the real question was
why Scott sees Jean in every woman he is with. Will we be seeing any Scott/Emma
centered stories so that we can understand their relationship
Mike Marts --You bet. ASTONSIHING
X-MEN #13-18 should carry some interesting Scott/Emma moments along with an
outstanding storyline. Look for Joss Whedon and John Cassaday to both return to
ASTONISHING just after the turn of the year.
