Exclusive: Stacey Lee Can Even Make That Jerk Cyclops Look Cool on This ‘Secret Wars’ Variant Cover
Cyclops is the absolute worst. He's a bad husband, a bad father, a bad leader, and his whole deal is acting like the king of the martyrs around people who have it so much worse than him. Oh no, do you have to wear glasses all the time, Cyclops? I can't imagine what that must feel like! Cyclops is so bad that even when he becomes a villain, he's the most boring villain on his island. Cyclops is so bad that there's a petition to transfer him to the DC Universe so that Aquaman can feel cooler than someone.
On the other hand, Stacey Lee is the best. Propelled to fans' attention thanks to her amazing work on Silk with writer Robbie Thompson, she's fast proved be one of the best new superhero artists in the business. She's so good, she can even make Cyclops look like a badass on her variant cover for Secret Wars #7 by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic, out next week.
Look at him, with the little Elvis sneer and the gunslinger pose; you could even be fooled into thinking that Cyclops actually has more personality than a Crackerjack box. No, he doesn't have any hidden depths, nor even a rubbish riddle and some peanuts and popcorn. Yes, he's still that one X-Man who looks like 80% of the Avengers, but somehow manages to make the fight for acceptance all about him all the time. But the way Lee draws him , you could believe that he's someone awesome, right? I mean, if you wiped his brain and put Emma Frost's mind in there or something?
That's probably what this is a picture of.
Of course, not everyone at ComicsAlliance has accepted how terrible Cyclops is, so if you actually like Cyclops for some reason, we've also got your back. Check out how he stacks up among the five most underrated X-Men:
