James Marsden – Cyclops

8. James Marsden – Cyclops

4 of 11

Marsden’s Cyclops appeared in all three films of the original trilogy as Jean Grey’s love interest and devoted soldier for Xavier’s cause.  Cyclops often butts heads with Wolverine as they share the same attraction to Jean Grey and conflicting ideologies about following orders.  Although he meets an untimely end at the beginning of the third entry, rumors coming out of Days of Future Past indicate that the time travel plot device significantly changes events from X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).  Scott Summers’ relationship with Professor X never seems to waver as Summers believes in Xavier’s vision and Xavier trusts Cyclops to open his eyes at the best possible moment.  Who’s going to forget a guy with heat beam vision?
