Cyclops (Scott Summers) is a mutant superhero in the Marvel Universe and long time leader of the X-Men. He is a founding member of the X-Men and X-Factor and is the X-Man most closely associated with the team's leadership.

OriginEdit

An orphan who had received brain damage after a plane crash, Scott Summers was unable to control his mutant powers to project optic blasts from his eyes. He was soon invited by Charles Xavier to join his school and lead his team of mutants, the X-Men.

BiographyEdit

ChildhoodEdit

Scott Summers is the eldest son of Christopher (a USAF Major) and Katherine Ann Summers and was born in Anchorage, Alaska. When his family was taking a flight to de Haviland Mosquito, they found themselves under attack from a spaceship from an intergalactic empire known as the Shi'ar. Worried for their lives, Katherine forced the boys to jump out with the only parachute, with the hard landing causing serious head trauma to young Scott. Once they were found by the authorities, the boys were separated with Alex being adopted and Scott, who was in a coma, spent a year in the hospital before waking.

After waking from his coma, Scott was placed in an orphanage called the State Home for Foundlings in Omaha, Nebraska that was secretly run by an insane geneticist named Mister Sinister (under the guys of the Mr. Milbury who took special notice of the young boy's genetic potential. Though he noticed that both Scott and his brother both were mutants, Mr. Sinister felt that Scott was the one with more potential and had Scott's brother Alex adopted so that he would become emotionally vulnerable to Sinister's manipulation. Scott was even provided with ruby quartz visors to control his powers given to him by "a specialist" (who, again, was Mr. Sinister in disguise).

Scott was eventually adopted by a man named Jack Winters as a teenager, though Scott was unaware that the man was in fact a mutant criminal named Jack O'Diamonds. Jack intended to use Scott's powers for his own criminal purposes and when Scott refused, he abused him, but Scott was eventually rescued by Professor Charles Xavier with the aid of FBI agent (and ally to Xavier) Fred Duncan. Xavier then recruited Scott to join his X-Men, a team of mutants working toward mutant/human equality. Since then, Scott became loyal to Xavier, who became his mentor.

X-MenEdit

Scott enrolled in Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngster, where he immediately began his training with the X-Men. Scott was also given a pair of ruby quartz visors that would allow Scott to see without his optic blasts causing damage every time he opened his eyes. Soon, Scott, under the codename Cyclops, became the team's deputy leader and through training became a skilled tactician.
