Yeah, I can't stand Cyclops but he was necessary way before his ties to Sinister. He was supposed to be the boyscout they just never let his character evolve. Same reason I don't like Iceman. He needs to get out of the teenage BS by now.

Jean, Gambit, and Cyclops all had ties to Mr. Sinister. The only one that really didn't was Bishop.
He was the first X-Man.
So what? just because he was the first character that has absolutely no personality besides bieng professor xavier's yes man or bitch makes him a good character.

The best thing they could have done with him was have him retire married to madelyn pryor (skip the inferno thing) after storm without her powers kicked his ass for the right to lead the team. Then have him make sporadic appearances here and there.
Storm was a better leader than he was, so was xavier, so was wolverine. He is the leader because if he wasn't he would have no purpose on the team. Marvel had to invent reasons to keep him and build his character, but you can't build a building without a foundation. he doesn't have a foundation and never will.
What the **** is a psychic affair? isn't that like watching porn only in your head? Sounds more like beating off if you ask me.
A character doesn't have to be hypermacho to be a well developed character.
As I already said, storm was the leader after him and she wasn't a hyper macho asshole. the only "hyper macho" characters the x-men have is wolverine.
Look at all the original xmen. Beast, jean iceman and angel all have far more interesting and multidimensional characters.
Cyclops just doesn't. He became the stereyotypical "yes man" no different from toad or any other character that gets bitch slapped by the bad guy when the bad guy is pissed for no reason.
If they haven't given him a personality and character after 40 years what makes you think they will anytime soon.
Kill him off and be done with it.
She was the purple died haired asian woman who talked once in the church.

And right now the only thing that makes cyclop interesting is emma frost, and as things are going now shes just a hack for the hellfire club.
I swear to god, if they decide to bring back the cyclop/jean couple from the dead. im going to scream. Collossus's 3rd (or is it 4th) ressurection was bad enough.
how did that work out?

So, why not maKe her asian. The guy that turned her into a Ninja Assassin was Asian.

I think Colossus has only died once. Or so I thought. Now his brother on the other hand supposedly dies and constantly comes back.

You cant tell that shes asian, much in the same way you cant tell that jubilee is chinese.
