the animated series this Monday. Scott and Jean were
kidnapped by the morlocks (since the morlock queen wanted to
take Scott as her partner) and he went around without his
red glasses on, saying his powers would be no good under
ground. Thanks for clearing that up... If only I had
enough time to find and read the comics :) Just out of
curiosity, does anyone know how long he has to be under
ground before his power fades? Do you suppose that the
movie Cyclops would behave the same if he were not in the
sun light for several hours? Thanks for the help, guys :)
Wolverine: So read my mind.
Jean Grey: I'd rather not.
Wolverine: Why? Afraid you might like it?
