I *knew* I should have posted KINKY ROMANCE # 1 last month. :-P

Hasn't Cyclops always been a jerk, though?  Even the original Maddie
Pryor storyline had him acting like a complete goober-- I'm thinking
of Scott asking her shortly before the wedding if she was, in fact,
Jean Grey come back from the dead-- a question that is insulting to
say the least.  And-- keep in mind I'm not an X-fan, so I could get
the facts wrong here-- but when he discovers his father is alive, he's
kind of an ass there too.  Granted, I understand it all-- father
issues, dead girlfriend issues-- but I'm amazed at how often people
have said it was out-of-character for Scott Summers to leave his wife
and child, or the recent affair with the White Queen.  Because I think
it's totally in character for Scott Summers to be a selfish prick.
