Cyclops Is Toast In The Latest “Ex-Men” Short From Pete Holmes

"Do you... shower with those on?

Pete Holmes (as Professor X) is down-sizing the X-Men, and no one is safe. The next victim on Charles Xavier's list is none other than the RayBan-clad Cyclops. Does it matter that he's the leader of the X-Men? Nope! Why? Because he uncontrollably shoots laser beams from his eyes. The firing really makes sense, when you think about it.

Newly Discovered CYCLOPS Gene Points To Vulnerability in Cancer Cells

A long-theorized but only recently discovered class of genes may point to an inherent weakness in tumor cells. Even better news? The soft spot in cancer's defenses is present in cells from a wide variety of cancers, meaning that treatments derived from it could be a tool in fighting cancers across the board, not just targeting one or two types. Researchers from MIT, Harvard and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute report on these so-called CYCLOPS genes (the acronym officially stands for Copy number alterations Yielding Cancer Liabilities Owing to Partial losS, but we suspect the name stuck mostly because it just sounds cool) this week in the journal Cell.
