Okay, first off, I think people are taking my posts a bit too seriously, despite my use of smileys. That being said...
It is one thing for a former hitman or soldier or whatever to harp on the terribleness of putting any youngster into a situation where they might have to kill. That might even be understandable or commendable. But for someone who not only had a youngster put a tumor into another man's head in order to blackmail him into working with the team and then have that same youngster use his powers to kill one of his former members (admittedly in defense of others on his team) to make such comments is, to me, questionable.
My point is not that Cyclops is perfectly okay with doing what he did (though it should be noted that he did not actually tell Idie to kill anyone). It isn't. It is reprehensible, just as having X-Force was a reprehensible choice (though perhaps necessary). My point is that when Wolverine taking issue with it, he really has no moral high-ground to stand on.
