New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Video Gives Cyclops the Spotlight
Out of all the X-Men, Cyclops never gets any love. He is their fearless leader, but also the most vanilla, with what some would call a boring personality. He is their Leonardo, their Aragorn, their Superman. Sure, he's not the most exciting guy, but without him the whole damn system would crumble. Which is why it's nice to see this new promotional video from X-Men: Apocalypse focused around good ol' Scott Summers.

The video serves as an origin for the character in this again-rebooted-but-not-fully-rebooted version of Bryan Singer's X-Universe, and sees young Scott in a high school history class learning about mutants (which basically just rehashes the plot from Days of Future Past). His eyes start to bother him, which earns him the attention of a jock who thinks the young mutant is checking out his girlfriend. This leads to a showdown in the bathroom where Scott's powers unleash themselves for the first time, to impressive effect.
