COMICS: A New Era Begins For Cyclops And The X-Men In Today's AVX: CONSEQUENCES #5
In today's AVX: Consequences #5, everything has changed for both Scott Summers and the X-Men. The conclusion of last week's issue saw Cyclops ask Magneto to break him out of jail, so what happens next? Find out here! [WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD]
When Cyclops was jailed at the conclusion of Avengers Vs. X-Men, his vocal fan base were furious at the thought that he would now be sidelined after years of leading the mutant race. Throughout the event mentioned above, it frequently seemed as if Uncanny X-Men writer Kieron Gillen was hell-bent on undoing the damage done to the character, highlighted best in his epilogue to the event. AVX: Consequences meanwhile has served as a way of taking Cyclops from being incarcerated to his "Marvel NOW!" role as a revolutionary of sorts (as indicated by his appearances in previews of All-New X-Men).
In the final issue of the series, he broke out of jail, but clearly has a dangerous new attitude as indicated by how he treated the prisoners who murdered Jake and the warden who incarcerated him in a jail which put mutants at risk. Whether this is an indication that Scott Summers is a villain or terrorist is debatable. Arguably, "Cyclops Is Right", but his attitude now is certainly one shared by Magneto - to do ANYTHING necessary to protect the mutant race. Below are a selection of scans from AVX: Consequences #5, but be sure to pick up the issue (which goes on sale TODAY!) for much, much more.
