Your suggested method for him escaping his fate is that he ran away from a psychic capable of disintegrating him faster than she could blink? Uh.
I guess when he drops his glasses and there was no sign of his optical blast doing any damage, he was just *really* fast in covering his eyes, too? Who knew Cyclops could give Quicksilver a run for his money...
They very deliberately left his fate ambiguous. We don't see him disintegrate and Jean only says she thinks she killed Scott.
If he falls unconscious, his own eyes will stop his optic blasts but even if he wasn't, the marauder, Prism, could absorb optic blasts without harm.
Mind you, he was so brittle that Kitty could shatter him if she sneezed. Prism sucked. But he could absorb optic blasts.
