Cyclops Will Kill Professor Xavier Again: Theory Explained

Cyclops once murdered Professor X, and with Emma Frost revealing Moira X’s betrayal to Scott, Cyclops may be forced to kill Xavier again.

Over the infamous Avengers vs. X-Men event the mutant hero Cyclopshead of x-menbrutally killed his mentor and adoptive father Charles Xavier, something Scott may be forced to do again soon. Although Scott originally killed Xavier while under the immense influence of the Phoenix Force, he has repeatedly stated that he would have done it all again because he helped restart and save the mutant race, this that he might need to redo as Xavier descends into a self-serving pseudo-villain.

It seems that since the two leads were brought back from the dead ahead of Jonathan Hickman’s acclaimed 2019 relaunch of the X-Men franchise in House of X/Powers of X, Cyclops and Professor X resolved their issues and regained respect and love for each other. However, this could further aggravate Xavier’s betrayals of the X-Men and Krakoa, and his growing ego caused Cyclops to once again lose faith in his mentor, potentially forcing him to lay down his beloved teacher again.

by Jonathan Hickman x-men #1 (2019) – illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu – is an amazing introduction to the new mutant status quo after the events of House of X/Powers of X. This immediately establishes the importance of the relationship between Charles and Scott, with a flashback to the first time the Professor gave Summers his ruby ​​quartz glasses that allow him to open his eyes. After the horrific events of Avengers vs. X-Menthen Inhumans vs. X-Men, Scott is clearly despairing of believing that the promise of Utopia that Charles made to him has finally come true on Krakoa. Yet much of Krakoan’s utopia turns out to be a lie, with Charles and Magneto secretly working with Moira X, now revealed to be a truly gruesome villain, to create the nation of Krakoa. Scott Summers has been suspicious of the Silent Council for some time now, even before Emma Frost revealed Xavier’s betrayal to Scott in this year’s special. X-Men: 2022 Hellfire Gala by Gerry Duggan, Kris Anka, Russell Dauterman, Matteo Lolli and Carlos Villa. Now Cyclops may not be able to close his eyes.

Charles Xavier has always been a complex and manipulative leader, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that the professor truly sees himself as a god. His leadership around Moira’s secret, use of the pit, and a variety of other manipulations reveal that Charles may end up being the X-Men’s biggest obstacle to a stable future. Specifically, Frost shows Scott how Charles wiped Reed Richards’ mind, prompting Summers to exclaim, “What?!…Did they restart the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants when I wasn’t watching?” Later in X-Men: Hellfire Gala 2022 it is also revealed that Forge, one of the newest members of the X-Men, is working on a dangerous and secret project for Xavier, just one more secret in a long line of hidden machinations for which Charles is responsible.

It looks like Emma Frost, Scott Summers, and Jean Gray are going to have to form a close secret partnership to find a way to keep Xavier in line, preventing him from destroying all of Krakoa with his explosive ego. However, Charles is notoriously difficult to control or convince that he is wrong. So Cyclops might have no choice but to kill the professor to regain control of Krakoa and stop Charles Xavier to ruin the future of the x-men and all mutantkind.
