    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 4, 2014

    For anyone turned off by young Scott's pangs of angst in Issue #1, I offer up this issue as proof that Cyclops isn’t navel-gazing, woe-is-me-isms. Scott and his father’s relationship is still in its early stages, but it will be tested - and Scott will have to decide the kind of person that he wants to become. He’s seen what following Xavier’s path gets him, but he’s also starting to understand who his father really is. These ideas are at odds with each other, and I don’t think that Scott is discerning enough just yet to recognize the best parts of either ideology to let those inform his actions. There’s even still a chance that he decides against both and forges a new path for himself. Cyclops is doing what any great superhero comic should: make its readers reflect on themselves and their own humanity while still being incredibly entertaining. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Adam Alamo Jun 8, 2014

    This book is many things"the story of a father and son, a fresh new take on an established character, and hopefully some answers to looming questions"all wrapped up in a whole lot of fun! It's a multifaceted book that I think can pull together different readers for different reasons. Personally, I think it's a touching treatise about lost opportunities and the chance to make amends for past regrets. Greg Rucka is one of the best and he's managed to take a character that isn't necessarily my favorite and make it a must read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Jun 9, 2014

    Only two issues in, "Cyclops" may be one of Marvel's best ventures yet. Although the book has its darker undertones, Rucka and Dauterman have spun a tale that is devastatingly charming and sweet. No need to keep up appearances here: there is a whole lot to love about this book. Read Full Review

    The resort world of Dixzit, where Scott flirts with aliens and Corsair shows off more of his skills,and notoriety. How the issue ended was fairly open-ended and the answers it might lead to are something we can all anticipate. Secrets to be revealed and they can lead to all kinds of reactions. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 27, 2015

    The second installment of Cyclops moves us right into place where we get an almost child-like goofiness out of Scott as he's in his 90's style shirt and just kind of awestruck by everything he sees. Corsair's not trying to toughen him up, which is good, but is just intent on spending time with him while also doing a little work that he needs to get taken care of as well. The father and son time is pretty good here considering the awkwardness of their relationship and I'm definitely enjoying watching it play out while waiting to see what quirks will come into play. There's hints of what's to come, which is good, but for the most part I'm still just shocked that this book is getting me to like sixteen year old Scott Summers again. It's all about the right presentation and taking him away from all the angst and drama of Xavier's school and the path he took was all that needed to happen. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier Jun 6, 2014

    So far Cyclops has been a fun read and a good juxtaposition to character found in the darker Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men books. This issues focus on the two central characters is enjoyable, allowing readers to connect with the characters as they rediscover their familial relationship. The plot threads placed throughout the issue will hopefully produce more moments of connecting and depth to the relationship between Christopher and Scott for future issues. Read Full Review

    While Scott may be hesitant to follow the path that Xavier has laid out for him, I wonder how long he will be able to follow in his actual father's? It is a moral dilemma I'm sure we'll see build up to a boiling point, but for now, this is just a classic X-Men in space kind of issue. It's a road trip between father and son who are both getting to know one another. Also it is a chance, at least for Scott, to know that there is more to life than he has seen. I'm digging seeing Cyclops with a personality once again and while recent issues of the ‘Uncanny X-Men' have been giving him a bit less of the militant Scott who is a team player, he is still far from the man he had been growing into for years.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 4, 2014

    Lost time aside, seeing such an interesting story that previously only wouldve been possible in the pages of What if? is, so far, a ton of fun. Corsairs written with the perfect balance of roguish charm and Scotts doing his best to look knowledgeable, but is still incredibly inquisitive and in awe of all the strange, new sights and sounds. Theres certainly a dark undercurrent to the whole thing, but this is overall a very bright and happy issue in a very witty, happy title. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 5, 2014

    Cyclops may get the title billing, but Corsair is the real draw here. Each scene featuring the rakish rogue is a delight, his effortless swagger bewitching both Scott and readers alike. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Dante Cianni Jun 5, 2014

    Following a great #1, this book is definitely keeping up the momentum; it's where Cyclops' journey really begins. Rucka has Scott retelling the story of Hamlet in the first couple pages, and I am really curious to see if that is a bit of foreshadowing for the series. I will definitely be staying tuned to find out. 8 out of 10 Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge May 8, 2014

    Cyclops #1 does exactly what a first issue needs to do: leave you wanting to read the next issue to see what happens next. It wasn't bend-over-backwards exciting, but it offered a tiny taste of each of the elements that will make up this book. In the coming months Rucka and Co. need to continue to build off the emotional relationship between father and son, the zany action of outer space and the exploration of one of Marvel's most neglected heroes in order for it to reach its potential and become a must-read title.
