> Though I agree with most of your responces (Peter was just trying to save Aunt May and Captian America is just standing up for all the other heroes), I'll have to disagree on Cyclops. I mean he sends teenagers out to kill their former mentors. I can understand Wolverine, X-23, Warpath, and maybe even Wolfabane, but it dosn't seem right to send the Young X-men out to do a job X-Force could do after they were finished with the Purifiers, or at least send someone older and more in tune with killing. Personally, after Messiah CompleX, I think he is acting a little scrully.

Dont get me wrong, I also think that the Cyclops in YXM is either a Skrull or one of Donald Pierces cyborgs or something similar.

The Cyclops in X-Force however I think is real and he behaves in a very similar way - which I think is justified under the current circumstances as the alternative is simply waiting for your enemies to make you extinct.

As for sending teenagers out to fight and die and kill - thats been going on forever. The original X-Men were all teenagers and then there were teams like the New Mutants, New X-Men and the original X-Force who were also all teens and all involved in life or death battles.

Well, all those teams (at least I think) were never ordered to kill anyone. Also wern't most the New Mutants/New Brotherhood instructors at the institute? I personally think it is a little wrong for oneteacher to ask you to kill another teacher. It's not that they're in peril or that they could kill someone, it's that Cyclops asks them to kill their former mentors. I hope Cyclops is not Cyclops, or this whole thing is like a training exercise or something.
