RIP: Scott Summers
the Summerlands

The term "fiction" or the latin 'fictio' denotes a "thing made," a "falsehood," or a "fable." But sometimes these "lies" we tell for entertainment purposes, these "stories" if you will, have meaning so univeral and heros so true, we cannot help but accept them into our own imaginations and make them a part of ourselves. Scott Summers aka Cyclops of the X-Men was one of these fictions, these heros. His recent "passing" inspired the following stories and here, several writers pay homage to a character that has captured their imaginations in individual ways.

So enjoy and keep a candle lit somewhere in your heart for Scott Summers.
