Let's be real... CYCLOPS is the most MACKISH member of the X-men.

Scotty was a deadbeat.

:deadrose:

That's the biggest thing I never liked about Cyclops (and I'm saying that as a Cyclops fan).
The one thing worth pointing out though was that a lot of IRL interference started creeping into the stories around that time.
Scott walking out on his family was an editorial decision that was made behind Chris Claremont's back.

After Jean died at the end of the Phoenix saga, the OG plan was for Jean to stay dead permanently and for Scott to quit the X-men , start a family, and move on with his life.
Later on however, the editors backpedaled and retconned Jean's death on the moon so they could market a spinoff comic about the OG X-men getting back together (X-factor).
That move really derailed Scott's character and ruined the impact of Jean Grey's sacrifice in the Phoenix Saga. Terrible writing, IMO.

Wolverine is short gang and looks like a caveman, not alot of women are going to be into that . I think it is realistic for wolverine to be a major simp though, alot of those hypermasculine type dudes are horrible at dealing with their emotions and turn into puddy once a woman shows them any affection.

Gambit was stroking a chick that could literally suck out souls. Close thread.
Gambit was sharing that girl with Magneto:

That's still better than the full-blown :sitdown: relationship Colossus had with Kitty Pryde though

That's actdually when I started comics. Basically that 90s Xmen show was based on 80s Xfactor and Xmen shyt. He was one of my favorites during that first 1/2 X-factor run with that husband/wife team (Simpson?)

The Simonsons were dope.

I’m not a huge fan of early X-factor but the series got better once the Simonsons took over. That’s where they brought in Apocalypse and started working to redeem Scott’s character after he got character assassinated following the return of Jean Grey.
The whole Archangel reveal in Fall of the Mutants was a classic moment.

Walt Simonson’s Thor run is also great, and it’s a real shame the MCU Thor movies didn’t draw more from it. Thor vs Beta Ray Bill should have been happened in the movies by now.
