Cyclops has been my favorite member of the X-Men since I was a kid. He looked cool and had a simple but unique power, which also gave him a bit of pathos. I think he is an interesting character and prefer when he is written as the solid leader that he is rather than a straight man for Wolverine or pining over lost loves. I really disliked how he was unceremoniously killed off in X-Men 3: The Last Stand and was hoping to see him given more justice in X-Men: First Class. Alas, that movie was a prequel and not a reboot as I had hoped, so no Cyclops this time around. It did well, maybe he will appear in the inevitable follow up.
