Scott Summers is a teacher at Xavier's Institute for English and is also an Assistant Headmaster. He always wears strange red sunglasses, and on the surface appears emotionally distant.

Cyclops is the field leader of the X-Men, a mutant superhero group of questionable material to the public. They are guest speakers for Mutant and Human equality.

Background

Scott Summers is the eldest Summers boy. Son of Major Christopher Summers of the USAF he grew up in Anchorage Alaska at least long enough to grow attached to a family he would then lose. A family oddly enough lost to an alien race known as the Shi'ar. Scott blocked out the specifics of these memories, convincing himself they had crashed. Lucky for him his mother saved him and his younger sibling, Alex. Unfortunately Scott also spent a year in a coma. During this time his brother was adopted and Scott woke to find himself being placed in a state home in Omaha Nebraska. Unknown to him the orphanage was run by his later foe Mr. Sinister.

Upon turning sixteen on a school trip to New York City, Scott ran away form the orphanage his powers manifesting in a series of events that endangered a mob of bystanders, Scott finds himself on the run after a backfired act of heroics. Unknown to him after the incident Professor Charles Xavier and FBI Agent Duncan were seeking him out and would eventually pull him away from the clutches of the Living Diamond. A criminal who was intent on using Scott and his mutant gifts to criminal ends.

Scott matured greatly under in his time with Charles and the school. Considered the first of the X-Men he lived as an example of what it meant to be a hero and a mutant. He took his role very seriously and strove to only get better, but to attain perfection in his role and to protect those he loves. He did his best to represent everything it was to be an X-Man. The original team opposed Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the shadowy Sentinel projects and numerous misguided or outright hostile mutants manifesting into a hostile world.

The team was a well oiled machine by the time they were sent to investigate Krakoa, the Living Island. The Island was actually a interlinked eco system that drained mutant life force to increase its own psionic power. It captured the original team and let Scott leave to attract other mutants. Professor Xavier hurriedly organized a new team of mutants who rescued Scott's original team. Scott remained when the rest of the original X-Men left to head the new team and often came into conflict with Wolverine. The new X-Men enjoyed success and the original members often joined them to help out.

Tragedy struck soon after when Jean was taken over by the entity known as the Phoenix Force. She had remained outside a shielded compartment to fly a shuttle carrying her teammates when a huge burst of radiation swept through space. At the time it was thought the radiation mutated her further into a nearly unstoppable new Mutant. The Phoenix grew in power, became more unstable and eventually gave her life to save her team.

Scott left the team after this and had a brief relationship with Lee Forrester married a woman who was Jean's spitting image, Madeleine Pryor.They had a son together -Nathan Christopher. When jean was found in suspended animation in Jamaica Bay Scott learned the Phoenix had replaced her and placed her into a healing coma. Scott left his wife and son to form X-Factor with the original X-Men (not his best moment). Soon after during a demonic invasion of New York they learned that Madeleine was a clone of Jean created by Mr. Sinister to breed a superior Mutant psychic with Scott. During the Inferno Madeleine's mutant powers were awakened. She threatened all and Jean killed her in one on one combat.

Later Apocalypse infected Nathan Christopher with a techno-organic virus and Scott and Jean sent him two millennia into the future for a cure.

Just when Scott was catching his breath after losing his son the Labyrinth appeared. Scott battled on his own, separated from Jean and the X-Men. In the end he managed to help several old friends and a few new heroes before the Earth's merged.

Since the Labyrinth Scott has served as a team leader and a headmaster of Xavier's School for Higher Learning with Jean. The new world has less prejudice against humans but the school is a visible target for anti-mutant groups. In addition he teaches English and has lessons to plan and tests to grade. Scott and Jean also seem to have a regular influx of future versions of their children showing up. When others left to better themselves in education or sought out adventure outside of Xavier's domain, Scott remained behind, improving himself as a man, teacher, soldier and mentor.

Personality

Cyke2

When he was a young man Scott was often accused of being aloof, detached and standoffish, these are not untrue but in reality he was quite awkward, even at points considered a nerd. This coupled with his looks lead to him being nicknamed "Slim".

Eventually Scott came out of his shell, encouragement from Professor Charles Xavier and developing a close bond with his peers started to shape his confidence, he quickly learned to put on a mask of confidence, drive and steely calm that was admirable.

After a while this mask becomes his reality. Scott is a very capable, comfortable man in dire siutations, he has a level head, a sharp tactical mind and a desire to overcome adversity. He is further fueled by the dream of his mentor. The dream the X-Men strive for. Under the banner of this idea he has become a perfect soldier for mutantkind. A champion with a cause. An X-Man.

  • Alpha Male - Scott doesn't submit to authority easily. He is used to being in charge after years of leading the X-Men. He ran away from his orphanage as soon as he had a good chance of success. He went along with Professor Xavier's offer to make him the nucleus of a new team because he would be leader. He fought Storm after returning to the X-Men to be the leader. Scott is naturally a take charge sort of guy and needs a few raps before he falls into line as a follower.
  • Self reliance - Scott is not just a Mutant, he's an Alaskan. He relies on himself. He will take help from his friends if he needs it but he tries to have a good skill set and not to call for help lightly. This extends to his skills. Scott likes to fix the things he makes use of, be they tools, wiring, jet engines or surly team members. He tries to maintain adequate supplies and keep track of such things.
  • Stoic - Part of Scott's detached manner is his refusal to respond emotionally to events. Things happen. Worrying or cursing them will not change events. A calm mindset will usually prevail.
  • Actions - Scott is not one for talk. He believes you judge a man by his actions, and especially how he takes care of those close to him. His dad sacrificed himself to save his sons, for example. So he might not often tell Jean she's beautiful or that he loves her but he will change her oil, rotate her tires and tolerate Logan for her. Rather than go on about how great the Institute is he'll fix the plumbing and wiring.
  • Restraint - Scott suffers from much of the same problems Superman does. He has a very dangerous power indeed. He constantly has to monitor it and himself or he might kill someone. This need to hold back led to his remaining distant from people, and not giving in to his feelings for Jean for years. He's gotten better but he is not the life of the party by any means.
  • Loner - Scott enjoys alone time. He'll fix a motorcycle or rebuild a jet engine for hours and just get lost in it. He could have written Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. He is not the most attentive friend or boyfriend for that matter and it is sometimes very difficult to get him to socialize.
  • English Major - Scott teaches English. He reads books. He often rereads classics or favorites (Jack London is a natural). Partly this is because he has little free time and would rather reread a classic than take a chance on a new author. He never read a Grisham novel, is more a man against nature reader). Part of this is because television and movies are all in red to him and a little uncomfortable to watch.
  • Love - Jean Grey is his soulmate, team mate and best friend. Period. He loves her wholly but in his own way. Some people would call hm detached or neglectful. It is hard to be detached or neglectful when you share a mental bond with a person. You're always together and physical space might be a luxury at times. Contrary to popular opinion you can have too much od a good thing.
