Emphasized in the final ''Uncanny X-Men'' tie-in; [[spoiler:Scott is now in shackles for the crimes he committed [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity as Dark Phoenix]], and he repeatedly asks Beast, who is detaining him, if the mutant race was restored. Beast dodges the question for as long as possible, but eventually caves and tells him that they were, and Cyclops,[[https://comicnewbies.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/cyclops.jpg in response, raises his cuffed hands to the sun]] in the shape of an X]]. Whether you think ''[=AvX=]'' was the greatest or worst thing ever, the one thing everyone seems to agree on about it is that his character arc, from ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' to this story, has been ''awesome''.
* The fact that Professor X manages to take on Phoenix![[spoiler:Cyclops]] in a psychic duel, and put him down over and over again, only losing when [[spoiler: Cyclops]] takes the whole Phoenix Force for himself.

* The entire final battle with Dark Phoenix Cyclops. He takes on the combined roster of the Avengers and the X-Men and fights them all off all around the globe without any effort whatsoever. At one point he ''punched the Hulk from Australia to America''. Even the combined might of Hope and the Scarlet Witch isn't enough to put him down, had the spirit of Jean not talked him down he would have effortlessly destroyed the world and quite possibly the universe too.

* The entire final battle with Dark Phoenix Cyclops. He takes on the combined roster of the Avengers and the X-Men and fights them all off all around the globe without any effort whatsoever. At one point he ''punched the Hulk from Australia to America''. And all the while, he's actually contemplating his situation and the cosmos, plus the raw power in him. Even the combined might of Hope and the Scarlet Witch isn't enough to put him down, had the spirit of Jean not talked him down he would have effortlessly destroyed the world and quite possibly the universe too. That's right, he ultimately threw the fight.


* Hulk's entrance into the final battle is by overhand double fist slam which sends Emma Frost through the island's landmass and into the ocean. And when a furious Emma, who at this point has half the Phoenix Force in her, blasts at him, he proceeds to NoSell it. In fact, all the time Cyclops was fighting off others, Hulk was holding her off, and easily at that.

* Spider-Man's speech to Hope to help her cope with her destiny. It is certainly a strong speech and also Heartwarming considering the inspriation. Also a FunnyMoment in how it took one speech to go from seeing him as a goofball to an amazing hero and wanting a costume more like his.
