Wolverine and the X-Men Season 1, Episode 12: "eXcessive Force" - Review

One of the most frustrating things about Wolverine and the X-Men is that each episode shifts the series' focus without much rhyme or reason, and often in a way that's detrimental to the pace of the series' overarching narrative. Thankfully, for every episode that needlessly slams on the breaks to showcase Wolverine, we get an installment that centers on a character like Nightcrawler, or in the case of "eXcessive Force," Cyclops.

Sadly, the series' latest outing hardly works as an exploration of Scott Summers, mostly because the characterization of Xavier's prized student comes off as unbearably one-note and redundant. Cyclops is devastated by the disappearance of Jean Grey. Cyclops desperately wants to find out what happened to Jean. Cyclops will stop at nothing until he finds out who was responsible for her mysterious fate. If you don't get the general gist of his character after the first two minutes of the episode, you'll surely get it by the end after you've been beaten over the head with the same tired notion several times over.
