Because I know there are comics!geeks lurking out there

A link to the 50 greatest Marvel characters. Now with snark! It's democracy in action, folks.*

A quote, just for Priya:
33. Cyclops, Scott Summers
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
The irritatingly dependable solid core of the X-Men, Scott Summers is basically Dr Jack from Lost - serious, manly, handsome and authoritative, but with all the personality of a Microsoft paperclip. "I see that you're fighting a Sentinel. Would you like to hurl Wolverine at its head while Iceman impedes its progress?" I can only assume the mutant boy scout placed at number 33 in this list by sheer force of nostalgic inertia.
* No, I'm not linking to this because it has a CE reference. That's a bonus.

Today, someone actually cheered when that scene happened, proving I'm not the only one to think Cyclops is a waste of space.

Hurrah for Wolverine and his overall indestructible-ness though.

I missed cheering? It's not enough that I was the ONLY PERSON who laughed at the Beast saying "stars and garters?"
