    Scott Summers hands down. Say what u will about him, but who has done more for mutantkind?

    I kinda hate that Marvel basically tore the character down, but I'm intrigued by the direction they're now taking him.

    depends what you you think is mor important putting every mutant on an easy target of an island and putting the future litteraly in the crossfire

    or actually going out to deal with the threats to mutant kind
    I'm so bored with this martyrdom routine, this halo all you X-men love to polish. Self-described soldiers adorned in an "X" with no dedication to what it actually stands for.

The problem is that Scott has taken to speak for all mutants even though he's never faced the many hardships many others have and doesn't recognise that not all mutants are on his tiny island. Also, in myopinion having a common leader would ruin mutant books I think, because it'd create an axiom of being with or against him as well of a hirachy that every mutant is somewhere placed on, which'd fuck up individual possibilities.

They were pushed around by no one. But at the same time were mature and secure enough in and of themselves that they could put their egoís aside and behave like professionals and work together for the greater good. Sure Chuck served as an elder statesman and councellor. But he wasnít there to push anyone around. Itís why I love(d) and admired the characters. They could stand on their own feet and make their own decision. They didnít need a Ďleaderí to dictate their every move, and they especially did not need someone as inept as Scott Summers.

    I invite every single person in this thread to read everyone of these responses, the idea that Marvel would push Cyclops not only as the leader of the X-men but the leader of Mutantkind is ludicrous. Only because you have a race of people brought to the brink only 200 or so left and everyone is going to decide to follow ONE leader one ideology. Never-mind the fact that the X-men as a group since their inception has been hated and feared and a target placed on their backs why would ANYONE choose to follow them when you'd be safer on your own.

    I always thought that after M-Day it was the perfect opportunity for Leaders not only in the X-men but all over the world in mutantkind to spring up each with their very own and very different direction of what was best for Mutants. I just can't imagine 200 mutants left all of them from different places and walks of life agreeing to follow the leadership of one man what was the reason to how did he connect to them on a personal level inspire these people who'd been wiped out to believe in what he was saying. And that is what really hurt the X-men and the different perspectives in the X-men that used to thrive it's no way that Cyclops could have all the answer or solution at least not realistically.


    It's no doubt that Cyclops is a great leader but realistically there should not be one or even two leaders of the X-men and ESPECIALLY mutantkind.

    YES!! Mister Franklin is the only acceptable answer.

    With his wife, Rachel Grey, and their mistress, Kitty Pryde.

    Don't worry, he has all the gay sex on the side.

    I've been anxious for the X-Books to contnue the slow arduous process of folding him into the mythos as the Silver Surfer of the mutant race for a long time now. As the true Messiah. In the end, it should truly be Frank Richards vs. The Scarlet Witch to decide the fate of mutants etc etc...

    I couldn't agree more. He should make a parallel Earth for the mutants to live on, so we can go back to a Morrison era mutant population. It would be like House of M but so much better~

    Oh, and this Earth would be where Mars was! :D

    i understand why ONE leader is logical. i mean, hasnt your nation(i dont assume you're necessarily american) been targeted by genocide w/millions dead in the past? mine has, at least twice in the 20th century(ok, second one was just an accident, technicaly the starvation during the occupation that lead to 40% of populace dead was unintentional). you have no idea of the DESPAIR such events bring forth. "god, oh god, we're all gonna die!" despair. if one man truly believes he can save the nation/sub-species/whatever, and he seemingly has some credentials, ALL will follow him, not out of free will; but because of FEAR, fear that the genocidal maniacs will kill them too.

    also: CABLE is the one, not scott, not nobody. in theory, Franklin could develop in the future, but right now, Cable has:
    -impossibly incredible wartime experience
    -proven desire for peace (cable & deadpool)
    -leadership credentials
    -once cured from his brain condition, he is possibly the mightiest psychic on the planet.

    In that case then I'm sure you're familiar with how that story always ends too.
