Bio:

Oldest son of USAF Major Christopher Summers, young Scott Summers barely survived the Shi’ar
attack that took his parents from him. Attempting to save his life, his mother strapped him into the only parachute onboard and pushed him and his younger brother Alex from their father’s burning
plane. Orphaned and hospitalized, Scott became a ward of the state, which separated him from his
brother and shuttled him from home to home. As he grew older, Summers’ mutant abilities emerged and
caused him trouble until Professor Charles Xavier rescued him and became the boy’s teacher and
father figure.

As “Cyclops,” Scott Summers was a member of the first class of X-Men trained by Xavier. He has remained loyal to Xavier’s dream, if not the man himself, at great cost over the years, through two marriages and a revolving roster of X-Men. Eventually he emerged from Xavier’s shadow to take a leadership position, in charge not only of the X-Men but also of the school bearing Xavier’s name.
