AiPT!’s Cyclops Week Primer

Ahead of Cyclops Week, revisit our past Scott Summers content!

At long last, Cyclops is finally back! We think. Either way, we’re set to learn more about Scott Summers’ return from the dead on the final page of Extermination #5 on January 23, when Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 by writer Ed Brisson and artist Carlos Gomez is released.

To commemorate the occasion, AiPT! is rechristening January 21-27 CYCLOPS WEEK!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

That’s right, Cyclops fans–seven days of content celebrating the one and only Slim Summers! In the spirit of this past November’s Uncanny X-Month, we’ll have eXclusive interviews with past, present and possibly future X-Creators, in-depth articles and opinion pieces, including guest contributor Trent Seely’s five-part “The Life & Tragedies of Scott Summers” series, and much more. Basically, if you’re a fan of Cyclops, or the X-Men, in general, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve bookmarked AiPT! (as if you haven’t already!)

But Cyclops Week won’t be the first time we’ve discussed the controversial mutant leader on our site. To tide you over until January 21, here’s a list of links to past content focused on or featuring mentions of Cyclops!
