Just when I thought the Phoenix bird-face visor couldn't get any worse....they introduce the X-visor.
The suit looks pretty cool. I like the combination of black (I'm guessing that it's black with a reddish glow due to his visor) and red, but the helmet/visor thing definitely has to go. I'm not a fan of Quesada's artwork so maybe it'll look better when interpreted by another artist. One can only hope...
On another note, I wonder what they have in store for Cyke. I know he'll be starring in All New X-Men alongside the rest of the original team but I wonder what the "present" Cyke will be up to? Hopefully, it's something good!

I also hope that we are seeing the red glow from the visor causing the blue/black bodysuit to appear maroon. Otherwise, thats a bit too monochromatic for my tastes...and I love monochromatic coloration. Blue-Black has been Cyke's signature for so long, it feels like to great a departure, unless thats the point and Scott has gone all Magneto Blood red, after another trauma.
I'm thinking the Basilisk identity/visor opened the door for some liberties to be taken with the look and functionality of the costume's eyegear.
Love One-Eye, hate the X-Visor.
I really hope this is a sign of him stepping out of the limelight and ending up with a team a la X-Force. That visor makes him look more inhumane than ever. Talk about a hardcore PR disaster.

With the cancellation of Uncanny X-Men (ugh!) I am hoping for Cyclops to be in X-Force. We know he and Cable are going to be somewhere (since they are in that promotional pic from Joe Q), but the question is where.
Having most of the Extinction Team (Cyclops, Magneto, Magik, Namor, Emma) and Cable in a new book would be sweet. Have them be on the run, be in space....I don't give a shit. The cherry on top would be Gillen writing it.
SDCC is next weekend, so we should have answers by then or sometime during the week.
Gillen writes Cyclops brilliantly. I hope the E-team goes somewhere but I lost all hope of Marvel doing anything good with the X-men. I'll just wait for Marvel now to fail so we can get back to Uncanny.
Don't like the Marvel Now outfit. The Phoenix outfit is cool, it could be tweaked to stay, switch out the Phoenix at least for an X.
I figured I'd drop this information in here for the Cyclops fans. It looks like we may be appreciating current Cyclops even after AvX is over. From this weeks Axel in Charge
Axel speaking about Bendis' upcoming X-men story in MarvelNow. "It's both the story of young Jean Grey coming back and wondering why everybody is looking at her so weird, and it's the story of Logan and Cyclops coming to terms with the fact that this young girl, who they both fell in love with, is now back in some way, shape or form."
It does sound interesting.
