ZT4 : "Cyclops said it best: Grow up."
Warren Ellis : "Cyclops is the best superhero in the world. He is, as far as I'm concerned, the Batman. He's been in intensive training since his early teenage years to lead the first-ever mutant rescue and security team. This is a guy who gets up every morning asking himself how he can be better." - Quoted for TRUTH.
Maybe this thread is a little sexist after all, as some of the questions are a little off and only look at Cyclops being manipulated by women and not by men. The omission of Sinister and Professor X is a bit much, especially considering Scott's justifiable anger and resentment over their manipulations in-story.
Also, I am not sure if Madelyne really belongs here, as she was herself manipulated all the time, by Sinister, the Phoenix Force, Gateway (who oddly was never held accountable for his actions) and of course N'Astirh. And I think Scott really no longer was in a grieving phase for Jean by the time he met Madelyne - after all, he had been involved with Lee Forrester for quite a while already, the effect on Scott of unexpectedly meeting a doppelganger of Jean probably would have been the same had it happened a year or two later.
One reason why I didn't vote is because you have to choose one person in the poll, and I think Emma and Jean are both culpable in the NXM storyline that is a gender-bent riff on Avengers #200.
By the way, Cyclopsj316, while I echo your sentiments about him, Stan Lee insists that Spider-Man is spelled with a hyphen.
Do we know for certain that that Madelyne is the real deal?
How do we know that this "Evil!Maddie" is free from influence/conditioning by Sinister, N'Astirh and others?
What did "Evil!Maddie" do to manipulate Scott apart from assuming Emma's form to have sex with him?
For what it's worth, she seemed to think she was the real deal. Bonus points for being written as a bitter, crazy ex.
Seriously. Pixie got beaten within an inch of her life because Evil!Maddie wanted to troll Cyclops.

Everyone who said Jean simply has no clue. Emma turned him into a supremacist.

this thread is terrible.
But if you need an answer, here…
Jean Grey is best at everything.

The Best There Is At What I Do
Nobody finds it odd that Cyclops screws around with very beautiful but powerful telepaths, yet come out of it unscathed?
*Serious Note.* The failed relationships were not due to mind manipulation. Even I know he screwed up
