More than two years after he died, Cyclops is back!
Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 is a beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated story that reveals how Cyclops came back from the dead. It’s one of the most inventive, if convoluted, methods for resurrecting a comic book character.
Cyclops is my second favorite superhero after Spider-Man, and I grew up reading the X-Men, which is my favorite superhero team, so this issue was quite poignant for me. Here’s hoping Scott Summers will lead the X-Men back to glory. But first, he has to rebuild the X-Men, after what happened in Uncanny X-Men #10.
Check out Polygon’s article about the return of Cyclops. Spoilers, of course, if you haven’t read this annual and Uncanny X-Men #10.
“After Marvel teased his return all fall, we got our first glimpse of the resurrected mutant leader in the final issue of the Extermination miniseries. This week, Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 gives us the full story of how Scott Summers, killed in 2016’s Death of X #1, is back among the living.”
