Top 10 Superhero Always Fighting Pairs
3. CYCLOPS VS. WOLVERINE
Scott Summers and James “Logan” Howlett are not friends. They never have been and never will be. But they are frequently teammates, and at their core, they have the kind of respect that can only come from many years of shared history.
While their personalities lend a lot to the conflict — Cyclops is as straight-laced as they come, Logan is a rule-breaking loose canon — their rift can mostly be traced to Jean Grey. Both men love her, and although she’s always remained loyal to Scott, Logan will always hold a special place in her heart.
One of their worst fights occurred in Marvel’s Ultimate universe, when Wolverine actually left Cyclops to die. (Ultimate Wolverine wasn’t a nice person.) Back in 2011, they had a fight in X-Men: Schism that led to the division of mutants between two competing schools.
Wolverine opened the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, which was a new name for the existing Xavier Institute, and Cyclops ran a covert New Xavier School for the Gifted in Canada with a focus on preserving the mutant race at all costs.
Currently, Wolverine is dead in the Marvel Universe (replaced by both his female clone and “Old Man Logan” from another universe), so he and Scott never reconciled.
