he was more like the anti-imperialist dictator of most of mutantkind after M-Day, who could back his words because he had weapons of mass destruction.
the problem of Cyclops is he was the right leader of mutantkind for the period between M-Day and AvX when the number of mutants had fallen to only a few hundreds and they were close to extinction, but he could never re adjust to the end of that crisis.
He was a great leader for that crisis, but it felt terrible for him to fall into a lesser position once that crisis was over. he could only go lower.
if they resurrect Cyclops, it would be very hard to imagine him taking orders from Kitty Pryde and being just another person in a team.
