When you consider that I'm spending a good portion of every week recapping the '90s X-Men cartoon, you might think that I'd have my fill of '90s mutant nostalgia, but that is definitely not the case.

One is the exotic and dangerous island of Genosha, a site full of hidden schemes and an ominous future for the entire mutant race. The other is Canada.
While there are certainly more tragic stories in X-Men history, Cyclops' ranks pretty high. Never mind the whole "I'm now estranged from nearly all my loved ones because I went to extreme lengths to save my endangered race" thing. The real tragedy is that, for his entire adult li
