I humbly apologize and offer my regret for lashing out at Scott and for not fully considering the depth and history of his relationship with Kurt.
Please accept this summary and excepted dialogue from
Exalibur #71 1993 written by Scott Lobell (at his best)
This is my heartfelt amends...
Reunited at Moria MacTaggert's Muir Island facility
Cyclops and Kurt talk out their pain in the fallout of 'Fatal Attractions'
Nightcrawler says, "Odd how even in the face of tragedy, there are often such wonders...such miracles...to be found"
Scott "We fnd them where we make them. I don't think anyone knows that better than you and I. But tell me...how are the other members of Excalibur?"
Kurt "To tell the truth mein freund...I do not know if there are any other members of Excalibur..." then he explains how his team has fallen apart, leaving only himself, Rachel, Kitty and Lockhead together
Scott "Mutant is another word for change Kurt...It's our ability to do so that keeps us going."
Kurt "That is kind of you to say Scott...But as leader of the X-Men, you have never had to deal with your team dissolving out from under you."
Scott "You'd be surprised...There was more than one time the bottom nearly dropped out from under us...once, each of us choosing to GO OUR SEPERATE WAYS. With you as their leader, Nightcrawler...I'm sure Excalibur is more resilient than you might realize."
(They walk off panel together with Scott's hand on Kurt's shoulder)
In the final passage of this book Kurt proclaims a bright new vision for his team and for himself as a hero. (In large part because of Scott's brotherly support) It's beautiful. This is the kind of reconciliation I hope for these two in the future.
Kurt "Danke Scott...Kitty, Rachel and I have discussed that Excalibur might function best...here...the enchanted blade serving as a metaphor for a scalpel, if you will, cutting deep between the cracks of the X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force....The world is getting smaller Scott...everyday. The global make-up of the Acolytes alone should indicate that there are mutants across the planet who have never heard of Charles Xavier and his dream of genetic harmony between homo-sapien and homo-superior. It falls to us to cut a swath of tolerance and understanding through the blanket of ignorance that often separates our two races."
