These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Iron Woobieand Stoic Woobie: Scott's gone through so much shit in his life its not a surprise he can be a bit of a dick sometimes. Still, his recent actions to protect what's left of the mutant race comes from the fact that the mutant race is the only thing he has left to fight for. People's reactions, at large, to Avengers Vs X Men seem to mostly be sympathy to Cyke.
Both young and old Cyclops in All-New X-Men also become major woobies by the fifth issue. Old Cyclops has to deal with even his own team hating his guts, is former family hunting him, and the world at large waning him dead, for actions he did while not in control of his own body, all the while he's trying to do good, but all his actions are demonized. Young Cyclops, however, has to deal with his friends freezing him out, the knowledge that he's going to degenerate into a mess that killed his father figure, and all the present day X-Men looking at him with contempt due to their hatred of his present self.
Magnificent Bastard: Solidified in Curse of the Mutants. To add some context, Utopia was surrounded by Vampires, fighing 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 Healing Factor, 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 Healing Factor 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, an when he says that the will slaughter you, he mean it.
Never Live It Down: Despite the sheer amount of leadership and badassery Scott had shown, he can never take a break for his screw-ups the writers had piled on him, which is the usual ammunition of his haters in favor of his clawed rival.
Abandoning his wife Madelyne Pryor and son Nathan Summers to search for the resurrected Jean Grey.
Being involved with a psychic love affair with Emma, while married to the psychic Jean.
Killing Charles Xavier during a psychotic rampage under the influence of the Dark Phoenix.
Ron the Death Eater: 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 professional alike, are concerned, he's the most despicable person on the planet. 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.
