Question Cyclops' eye blasts...

So for my physics project where we have to find film clips which ignore or exaggerate physics laws I am thinking about including Cyclops' eye blasts. If his eye blasts are forceful enough to shatter buildings then the force exuding from his eyes should have some sort of effect on him in the form of pushing him backwards. Unless he has super neck muscles or something, he should be thrust back by the force.

Thoughts?

that's a good thought! but in rubber science, stuff happens that doesn't normally happen in physics, even if the character is not a reality/physical law bending character. For example: when hulk lifts (a) heavy object/s above his head, he doesn't sink into the groud. But hey, don't just take my word for it, i'm just in 8th grade big grin

I don't think is power is to shoot beams from his eyes per se, but to open tiny portals into an energy dimension over his eyes. For whatever reason the rifts in space follow his eyes around... it sounds kind of silly when you type it out.

And because of his head injury he can't turn it off.

the energy coming from his eyes comes from another dimension im sure and not actaully from his body ( im aware how lame this sounds right now) which might be why he isnt hurled backwards.

Or use Cap's shield. Its material is supposed to absorb kinetic energy and that's why he can stand there and take shots from Thor and Hulk from behind the shield. But he throws the thing and it bounces around like a pinball.

the insides of his eyes are resistent to the very energy that cyclops releases, because of this he is not propelled backwards. His entire body is immune to this energy as well...

... not only this but cyclops is also immune to Havoks power, which is solar heated plasma.

although thus far this immunity seems to only be from their own powers... I have not seen cyclops being blasted with solar heated plasma by any other source.


actually to note... in the Xmen movies there was a "pull back" effect whenever cyclops released his blasts from his eyes... he had to twice pull his head back when closing his eyes... as if the force of the blast emanating from his did have some effect on him when he closed his eyes... first in Xmen 1 in the bus station, and in Xmen 3 by the lake.

the "pull back" may very well just have been him tensing his head to aim, or for visual effect. imagine if he just stood there and shot the beams out; it would look much less cool just to get across a rather minor point.

the energy which is released through cyclops' eyes is referred to as "non-einsteinium," meaning from a dimension in which our physics do not necessarily apply. and, as the energy is rumored to be similar to photons, it simply slips out of his eyes uni-directionally at near-light speeds.

imagine, if you will, a gun firing. typically, if it were fired normally, there would be a kickback to the gun as the bullet escaped. however, cyclops' blasts are not likened to this. instead, imagine if the bullet simply came into existence, already being propelled, at the end of the barrel. the gun itself has, really, nothing to do with the release, and is essentially unaffected.

heh plagerism!

He is immune to his own power, I guess that is the only practical explaination. 0.o lol! If there is such a thing as a logical explanation of a fictional character.

Cyclops' unvisored shots have many interpretations. There's the popular one that's been going around where he just stands there and his blast washes over and destroys everything within a 45 degree angel in front of him.
