Let’s face it, one of the most prominent X-Men is often overlooked, to say the least. When people think of the X-Men, characters like Wolverine or Storm come to mind. It’s been awhile since Cyclops had a real prominent role in the newest X-Men cartoons and he’s never been done right in the movie.
Scott Summers has an intriguing backstory and seeing him as a child come to terms with his immense power and the danger it causes would be relatable to a mainstream audience. Sure, we can shoot enormous laser beams out of our eyes and destroy everything in our path, but Summers is a sympathetic character and a force for good. He’s a leader and as one of the most powerful X-Men it’s time for him brought back into the spotlight.
Other than Cory Hart, I can’t think of anyone else besides Summers who looks that cool wearing sunglasses at night.
Lobo is like DC’s version of Deadpool– certainly not an angel, but hilarious and incredibly violent. This interstellar alien and bounty hunter has immense strength, healing and can’t survive in space. When he’s not beating up slavers with his fists, likely cutting them to bits with his hooked chain that he loves to carry.
Lobo has a space motorcycle, can smell his targets across space like a bloodhound on the most powerful of steroids and refuses to fight anyone that loves dolphins like he does. Seriously, he refuses to fight Aquaman because of it. He’s also killed Santa Claus.
A character with so much power and such ridiculous stories like Lobo is seriously under-rated. Perhaps one day this character will get the attention it deserves.
