‘Uncanny X-Men’ #22 lays on the romance between these two X-Men

Anyone who shipped these characters is going to want to read this.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.

X-Men fans have very strong opinions about… a lot of things–but especially who Cyclops should be romantically involved with. Should Scott Summers be Emma Frost after Grant Morrison most definitely made them work so well? Or should he be Jean Grey, the woman he married in the historic X-Men #30? It seems like Uncanny X-Men writer Matthew Rosenberg wants you to know who he ships Cyclops with in Uncanny X-Men #22 out this week.

In the issue’s big climactic finish, Cyclops, Wolverine, Emma and a bunch of other X-Men are against the ropes and may lose their last fight… until the X-Men who disappeared at the conclusion of “X-Men Disassembled” show up to the disbelief of Scott.

It’s at this point you’re counting down the panels until Jean Grey and her former husband are reunited. From the flaming rubble of a defeated foe, we see Jean walk toward us. Shockingly we witness her seem to offend a certain Canadian mutant.

You can see the disappointment on Logan’s face. Then witness Emma look on at Jean in almost disbelief. In an incredible page, we see Scott and Jean embrace. Anyone who ships Jean and Cyclops is jumping for joy at this point.

To throw salt into the wound, we can see Logan and Emma both react with clear disappointment. Talk about a bold turn of events!

Of course, this is only part of the story and I highly recommend you read the whole thing to get the full picture. Either way, this is a turn of events that’ll have the X-Men community abuzz for quite awhile. Your move, Hickman!
