* MagnificentBastard: Solidified in ''Curse of the Mutants''. [[spoiler: To add some context, Utopia was surrounded by Vampires, fighting on every side and platform. Jubilee and Wolverine have both been turned, and the latter is standing only a few feet away, ready to cut his head off and turn the rest of the X-Men. Cyke's response? Pulling out a control to reactivate Wolverine's HealingFactor, turning him back. That's right, Scott discovered he was immune to vampirism and that the vampires wanted to turn him, so he deactivated his HealingFactor and allowed him to be turned, just so he could turn him back right when they were relying on him to lead their forces. The vampires, still in shock, are promptly slaughtered. Meanwhile, Scott's earlier plan, to bring back Dracula and have him take back the vampire horde, appeared to have failed and was forgotten...only for it to turnout Dracula had been tracking down Xarus all this time, and after curbstomping his son and taking back his place, Cyke warns him that he could kill him with the push of a button. Dracula claims that he knows he's bluffing, but still lets them leave in peace. In short, do NOT threaten the safety of Cyclops' people, and when he says that he will slaughter you, he means it.]]

** Being in some kind of a psychic love affair with Emma while married to Jean. Though opinions vary on how bad this is, since Emma sees it as necessary therapy he's providing for Scott, and the two don't become actual lovers until after Jean's death (and with her consent).

** In the aftermath of ''Avengers vs. X-Men'', Aaron makes it a point to have characters get angry at and insult Cyclops literally whenever they meet, even characters that don't hate him in other books, and regardless of the current situation. Characters have called out Cyclops for training his students to fight and taking them in his missions... Which the X-Men do fairly often. Readers are quick to note that Cyclops' students are all college aged or older. Hell, after Cyclops shows concern for Wolverine and saves his life, [[UngratefulBastard Logan decides to be a dick to him]]. In Logan's defense, Cyclops is not only indirectly responsible for Professor X's death, but also [[WhatAnIdiot almost doomed the earth by welcoming back the Phoenix force despite everything that happened in the past.]]

* FridgeHorror: Scott's relationship with Emma Frost becomes a ''lot'' less romantic when you remember that its foundation was built on rape.(She convinced him having psychic sex was the best way to treat his PTSD while acting as his therapist.)

** Killing Charles Xavier during a psychotic rampage while rampage. In his defense, he was possessed by the Dark Phoenix.Phoenix. However, he is still partially responsible for it, because he had the bright idea to welcome back the Phoenix to earth after everything it did to him, his ex-wife and his friends, thus almost dooming earth in the process.
** Fans don't bring this one up very often, but as mentionned above, remember that time when he and Emma made out over Jean's grave like horny rabbits?
** In the Ultimate universe, he left the X-men to join Magneto temporarily. The reason? Because he saw Logan and Jean making out. That's it. Nothing else. He tries to pretend otherwise, but it's easy to call him out on it. He left the closest thing he had to a family to join a genocidal supervillain, simply because he saw Logan and Jean making out.



* RonTheDeathEater: While Cyclops may not be perfect and he makes his share of mistakes, but as an A-List superhero team leader, that's bound to happen. However, as far as some writers, fan or [[RunningTheAsylum professional]] alike, are concerned, he's the most despicable person on the planet. [[ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen Despite being brainwashed at the time]], people are blaming him and solely him for the state mutants are in now, despite mutants always being in this kind of situation. Then there's the fans who complain about the fact he blames Wolverine and the Avengers, or the dark Phoenix, instead of accepting blame himself...despite the fact that he still accepted responsibility, and is the only one in the mess who's accepted any blame in the whole mess (except for Captain America, who at least admits he hasn't done enough to help mutants), while the opposing side hasn't and continue to blame him for everything.
* ShipToShipCombat: Where to even start? Cyke/Jean vs. Cyke/Emma is probably the biggest battle in the fan base, the former being iconic while the latter some fans find far more interesting, and still others remember him fondly with Madelyn Prior (who was later revealed to be an evil clone of Jean, or driven to being evil DependingOnTheWriter). That's not even getting into HoYay with Angel and, of course, Wolverine. ''Now'' there's also the fact that some writers have decided that ''the Phoenix Force itself'' wants him. Then of course is [[FoeYay Mr. Sinister]], who has ''long'' displayed an unhealthy obsession with Cyclops within the books leading to quite a bit of subtext among fans. More recently, Uncanny has seen Tempus, Maria Hill and even Magik enter the fray. And that's not even including ''Teen''!Scott in ''All-New'', who is popularly linked both with the obligatory Jean Grey (in this case time-displaced O5 Teen!Jeen) and, thanks to Rule63 giving the fanbase an outlet for Adult!Scott's subtext with Logan, Comicbook/{{X 23}}. The one thing all of the fans seems to ''agree'' one is that Scott loves to hook up with crazy people that would love nothing more than to dominate and break him.

** Following DeathOfX any time O5 Cyclops whines about his future self being 'evil' or 'Mutant Hitler' it comes across as incredibly stupid and holier than thou, when it was revealed that Cyclops did literally nothing wrong and risked everything to save the mutant race while Young Cyclops did literally nothing of note. What's even more baffling is that ''he was there'' when Death of X happened and so he knows the truth about his older self... and he still whines about him!

In his defense, his older self DID do a lot of stupid things in his(their?) life (See Neverliveitdown above), so it's kind of understandable.

* DesignatedVillain: Is frequently blamed for everything that goes wrong simply because he's the only one to step up to the plate and accept responsibility.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Scott bounces back and forth between this and UnintentionallySympathetic so often DependingOnTheWriter it's not even funny.
** As of Avengers vs X-Men, he is now stuck on UnintentionallySympathetic.
** [[spoiler:Time will tell where he lands once he's found on the ''AllNewAllDifferentMarvel''.]]
** [[spoiler:Meta-wise this will now be the case no matter what happens in ''AllNewAllDifferentMarvel''. You'd think the writers would see their failed first attempt as a sign that maybe Cyclops doesn't work as a villain and they should do something NOT stupid. Now thanks to InhumansVsXMen, he may finally be intentionally Sympathetic]]

Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler:And then Death of X came out where it was revealed there was not one but two Terrigen clouds, one of which hit Muir Island and killed Jamie Madrox as well as all of his dupes, this being the first time any of the X-Men had seen M-Pox and being understandably horrified. Cyclops begins a plan to use a mutant named Alchemy to change the make up of one of the clouds and render it harmless to mutants which works although this leads to Alchemy's death, all with the Inhumans fighting him every step of the way. He's then executed by Black Bolt in front of the gathered X-Men and Inhumans. That leaves the reader to wonder just why, then, was he being talked about as having done something so irredeemably evil once ''AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' started. Especially after it's revealed that he died some time around the first issue of Death of X and all instances of Cyclops afterwards are mental projection of Emma Frost's creation meaning he didn't even the horrible things he was accused of doing.]]
