Summers Lovin’ – ‘X-Men’ #10 and ‘Cable’ #2 bring the soap opera heat

X-Men #10 and Cable #2 provide new insight into the Summers family’s feelings and relationships.

Spoilers ahead. For more read our review of X-Men #10 and Cable #2.

In an X-Men era overflowing with water cooler moments (of the socially distanced variety, of course), none has been more discussed than the apparently now-open marriage between Scott Summers and Jean Grey. Based on several very obvious clues, the longtime lovebirds took the founding of Krakoa as an opportunity to take their relationship in a more polyamorous direction.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Just look at that steamy scene between Jean and Wolverine at the end of X-Force #10.

Well, in this week’s X-Men #10 and Cable #2, we continue to learn a bit more about Summers family values.

Lesson 1: Cyclops is a good dad and an even better brother

Mysteries–X-Fans love ‘em! Who is the X-Traitor? Who is Onslaught? What’s Wolverine’s true origin? In the Dawn of X, Head of X Jonathan Hickman added a new one to the list: Will we ever get to see Scott and Jean take the kids to Chandilore?

We even asked X-Men Senior Editor Jordan D. White about it in X-Men Monday #60!

AIPT: That Summers and Logan family vacation to Chandilore–are we just going to keep talking about it or will we ever get to see that in the comics?

Jordan: Maybeee.

The Summers family vacation was first teased in X-Men #2.

Well, in X-Men #10, we finally see the Summers clan (and Logan) on that long-teased vacation under the stars, via a note to Scott’s formerly maniacal brother Vulcan. Gotta love a guy who can look past that time his brother murdered their dad. 

And, as promised, we get Jeannie in a bikini and Scott in a speedo. Anyone else getting classic Marvel Swimsuit Special vibes?

Lesson 2: Like father, like son

As teased in Wolverine #3, the Stepford Cuckoos have their sights set on Cable–and they appear to have nabbed their mutant. And young Nathan, who we just saw flirting up a storm in Cable #1, isn’t settling for just one of Emma Frost’s girls–he’s dating them all! We get confirmation on that in Cable #2 with a big smooch.

Emma’s far from OK with this, so she pays a visit to Cable’s dad Cyclops (who we assume is fooling around with Emma on the side–when he’s not trying to enjoy a Philly cheesesteak in peace), who isn’t too alarmed by the news. Relax, Emma, it’s a new world! Having multiple partners is just the Krakoan way. This again, in Cable #2.

It’s been a long time since the X-Men soap opera’s been this juicy. I highly recommend you read both issues in full to get the whole story, but hopefully, we’ll get more peeks inside the Summers household in the coming months.
