When Scott went to the train station to meet his new parents, he discovered they were killed in a plane crash. He ran away and in the process saved a guy from being killed by a falling rock (he blasted the rock with an optic blast). Now, the poor child was proclaimed as a threat to people and the US Army sent out a tank and some soldiers to capture Summers. Luckily, through his government contacts, Professor Charles Xavier learned of the boy's existance and arranged to protect him from the army. Xavier didn't reach Scott first. A man named Diamond Jack (a psi of the highest order, kinda) took the kid under his proverbial wing, but used Scott as a weapon in his crime spree. When Xavier confronted Diamond Jack, it was too late to stop his transformation into Jack o' Diamonds (made completely out of crystal and with invulnerability). Siding with Xavier, Scott helped Xavier attempt at reversing Jack's transformation. However, the criminal resisted and blew up. Realizing that Xavier may make his life much easier, Scott enrolled in Xavier's School for the Gifted.
The final member of the original X-Men was a young woman named Jean Grey. Scott was introduced to Jean as "Slim", but later told her his real name was Scott. Jean always had emotions for the silent teenager, but Scott never was really emotional (for various reasons). As the senior X-Man, Cyclops lead the X-Men against Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants many times. It was only after Uncanny X-Men #17 did Cyclops official become the leader of the X-Men. Shortly after achieving the leadership role, Scott found his long-lost brother Alex. Alex later joined as Havok. When the X-Men faced the Sentinels and Lawrence Trask (son of Bolivar), Cyclops was able to outwit the Sentinels by getting them to fly into the sun. It seems the sun is the ultimate source of mutantion, so the Sentinels shoudl destroy it according to logic. Go figure.
Now leader of the new team, Cyclops trained them to work together as a team. The death of Thunderbird was taken badly, but the team survived. When visiting Rockafelller Center, Cyclops and Jean Grey were attacked by mutant hunting Sentinels. Jean was captured alogn with Professor Xavier, and cyclops and the X-Men went after the two. After defeating the Sentinel and Dr. Steven Lang,the X-Men and one Dr. Corbeau escaped in a Star Core shuttle, but it was damaged. Onyl Jean Grey had the power to barely withstand the cosmic radiation that was penetrating the shuttle. The rest of the X-Men were placed in teh radiation proof conpartment, while Jean piloted the shuttle.
Jean almost perished, but the Phoenix force intervened and allowed Jean to survive only if Jean would give a part of her to the Phoenix. Jean accepted the offer and was placed in a healing cocoon at the bottom of Jamacia Bay. Phoenix (now in the form of Jean Grey) emerged from the bay after the shuttle crashed into it, proclaiming to be now called Phoenix. After gathering the other X-Men, Phoenix told them that she tapped into a cosmic source of power, that made her Phoenix. Scott and Phoenix continued their relationship, but after Phoenix was believed to have died in Antarctica, Scott developed a relationship with Lee Forester. When Phoenix discovered, she was angry with Scott, but after he told her that she meant the world for him, she forgave him. Phoenix had been having memory flashes at the time about Jason Wyngarde and her ancestor. They were merely illusions instilled into Phoenix's mind by Mastermind. Little did Mastermind know what he unleashed.
When in New York to recruit Dazzler, Cyclops noticed that "Jean" started dancing with a random man (who was Mastermind) like she knew him forever. Dazzler started to hit on Cyclops, who remained faithful to Phoenix. On a butte in New Mexico (belonging to Angel), Phoenix and Cyclops formed a psychic rapport that would go past all forms of intimacy. This rapport would make each of their minds open to the other. Later when the X-Men attempted to inflitrate the Hellfire Club, Cyclops was ambushed by the fully mind-controlled Phoenix, now the Black Queen. Easily captured by Phoenix's betrayal, the X-Men became prisoners of the Inner Circle. Attempting to bring Phoenix back to the side of the angels, Cyclops entered the psychic plane via the psychic rapport. There, he and Mastermind had a duel to "decide" Phoenix's alliance. Cyclops was defeated, but that defeat shocked Phoenix enough to bring her out of the mind-control.
Phoenix broke the X-Men free and, as they defeated the Inner Circle, dealt with Mastermind. Driving Mastermind mad by giving him ultimate knowledge but taking it all away suddenly, Phoenix felt she had her revenge and was restored to her former self. However...Phoenix was not restored. She was too tempted by the power and became DARK PHOENIX. Cyclops tried to stop her, but he was defeated by Dark Phoenix. She flew off into outer space. Cyclops still knew what she was doing, thanks to that nice psychic rapport. So, Cyke found out that while she had just fed on a star, Dark Phoenix was still hungry. That was why she was returning to Earth...
With Beast's scientific mind, the X-Men were able to develop a neural scrambler, which could scramble Dark Phoenix's brain waves long enough for them to capture her in an attempt to save her. However, the scrambler burnt out trying to contain the Dark Phoenix's energies. While Dark Phoenix was able to capture the rest of the X-Men, Cyclops was able to reason with her. Just as Dark Phoenix lowered her guard, Professor Xavier entered the scene and psi-blasted her. Cyclops questioned him, but Xavier told him not to argue. Dark Phoenix recovered quickly and engaged Xavier in a psychic duel. Xavier won the battle with his power and Jean Grey's (who was helping from the bottom of Jamacia Bay). Shortly after being "cured" from the Phoenix, the X-Men were kidnapped by the Shi'ar. The Shi'ar's reason to "summon" the X-Men: destroy Dark Phoenix. Cyclops tried to get tell them that Phoenix has been contained by the psychic barriers placed in her mind by Professor Xavier, but the Shi'ar believed that she was too dangerous to exist. The only way for the X-Men to protect Phoenix was to participate in a honor duel, between them and the Imperial Guard. While Scott tried to save Phoenix, she won't allow him and committed suicide.
Scott then left the X-Men and had a relationship with Colleen Wing (this time it was serious, but not Jean/Scott level). That relationship didn't list much longer and Madelyne Pryor entered the scene. The two instantly fell in love (they were both pilots and Maddie looked A LOT like Jean (which is just amazing b/c Maddie is a clone of Jean, but Scott doesn't know that yet...shh!)) and were married a couple months after they met. The couple lived in the Xavier Mansion with Scott leading the X-Men. Rachel Summers appeared in the timeline and Scott found out that she was Jean and his daughter from another timeline. He wasn't too happy about it. Scott found out that Maddie was pregnant in the Alpha Flight/X-Men limited series and was very happy about the upcoming Summers.
While in Paris during the Trial of Magneto, Madelyne went into labor and bore Christopher Charles Summers (later Nathan Christopher Charles Summers). The baby (who actually didn't have a name that issue) was a blessing to Madelyne, but Scott didn't seem to care now. I think that Scott thought that the child should have been his and Jean's, not Madelyne's. Scott and Storm have a duel, where hte victor remains leader of the X-Men. Well, the powerless Storm whumps up on Cyclops, who leaves the team b/c he lost (sore loser). He, Madelyne and Christopher (he's not Nathan yet) go to Alaska, where they sat for a long long time. They would have stayed there had Angel not asked for Scott to come to Manhatten to join X-Factor, a team of "mutant hunters" that included the original X-Men. Yes, Jean Grey was alive. Instead of being dead like everyone thought, she was in a coccon at the bottom of Jamica Bay.
So, Scott returned to his old friends and love to create X-Factor. The purpose of the group was to find young mutants and teach them how to use their powers. The cover of the team was a group of human mutant hunters that terminated mutants they found. Scott soon had doubts about coming back to the original X-Men and returned to Alaska, where he found Madelyne and the baby never existed in the eyes of other people. Then, he found a rattle that was Christopher's. So, Scott vowed to find Madelyne and his son, or get revenge for them.
Soon, Scott had big problems with Jean. He kept thinking she was Phoenix, which he never was. Then, the two started to attack each other to get the point across. To end it, Scott grabs Jean and takes off his visor. No optic blasts. So, therefore Scott thinks Jean was Phoenix b/c Phoenix could hold back his optic blasts. Well, it turns out Leech was standing by them, keeping them from using their powers. So, Scott thinks he's crazy but discovers that Cameron Hodge has been manipulating them for quite a long time. He also learns that Madelyne "died" in Houstan with the other X-Men.
So, Cyclops went to Alaska, where he told his grandparents EVERYTHING about what happened to Madelyne and Nathan. I don't think they cared b/c he came home shortly after he fought the Dark Riders (formerly the Riders of the Storm) along with Mr. Sinister. Sinister informed Cyclops that Stryfe unleashed a plague on mutantkind, called the Legacy Virus. This information was sent directly to Xavier and Beast, who prepared to see its effects on mankind. Well, after the FAtal Attractions crossover, Cyclops learned that Cable was his son! Wow! Their relationship didn't start off to well, with Cable being very resentful about Cyke. The fact that Jean and Scott were getting married (Jean proposed right before Thanskgivign dinner) would help the father and son's relationship. After having a heart-to-heart right before Cyclops' bachelor party, Cable and Cyclops have started to get along with each other.
After their wedding, the newly-weds went on their honeymoon on a nice tropical island. Too bad that their honeymoon woudl be cut short by the intervention of the Askani' clan. Yup, that Sisterhood of the future plucks the two's essenses and puts them into constructed bodies (with a tad dampened powers). It turns out that after the wedding, Rachel Summers (Scott and Jean's daughter from an alternate timeline) had created the clan to fight agaisnt Apocalypse. When the Askani' stronghold was under siege, she had the transfer arranged quickly. The couple's goal in this time: save young Nathan Summers nad defeat Apocalypse! After saving Nate from the hands of Apocalypse's Elite, the couple changed their name ot Dayspring adn taught Nathan how to use his powers to hide his techno-organic infection. After 12 years in this time (wow!), the Daysrpigns had to face their destiny and destroy Apocalypse. With their combined strength, the three were able to qucikly defeat the dying High Lord. With his death, the Summers couple were sent back to their time. Before disincorporating, Cyclops/Slym Dayspring tells Nathan that he will be the CABLE between the past, present and future. Cute way to give a codename :P
Back in the present, Cyclops and the now codenamed Phoenix were picked up by SHIELD (those wacky spy guys lead by Nick Fury) and taken to a spatial rift created by a women, named Sunset Grace,whose mutant powers were released by the psychic pain caused by the Summers' pull from this era (basically, her powers turned on when the two were pulled into the future). This rift would soon destroy the planet if it was not sealed soon. The couple were able to seal the rift, but only by sealing the woman in with it (she went in voluntarily after Phoenix told her that her dead family lived in with her). Not having time to catch their breath, the two traveled to Muir Island with information concerning the Legacy Virus that they got from teh future (they found a protoytpe of the virus in an underground base of Apocalypse). Instead of finding Profesor Xavier or Dr. Moira MacTaggart, they found those nice Phalanx. With the help of Wolverine and Cable, they were able to free the X-Men and subsequently destroy the Phalanx presense on Earth.
Then, Lady Sanciety from the Askani' clan appears and ships the Summers couple off to 1849 England. It turns out that this is the time when Apocalypse should possibly take over. So, the couple have to stop him again. Little did they know that this is also when Mr. Sinister is "created". Scott really really hates Sinister for screwing up his life, so he is ready to kill him before he turns into Mr. Sinister. Well, after they attempt to keep him from changing into the mad geneticist, he still becomes Mr. Sinister, but poisons Apocalypse with a virus. Right before they are sent back to their own time, Lady Sanciety tells the couple that Mr. Sinister had to survive because without him, there'd be no Madelyne Pryor, thus no Nathan Summers, the savior of the future.
Getting their butts in gear, the five X-Men (and Jubilee, who also escape from O:ZT) travel to the School (they drop Jubilee off on the way) so they can get Cyclops medical help. When they get there, they find the mansion empty. No med lab to get the bomb out with. So, tehy go with teh nex tbest thing: Dr. Cecelia Reyes, a mutant was the ability to project a force field. With some help from Wolverine, Marrow, Maggott and Beast, Dr. Reyes was able to safely get rid of the bomb before it went boom. So that he can recover from his injuries, Cyclops and Phoenix are taking a leave of absense from teh team, where they are living in that nice cabin up in Alaska. Cyclops nearly killed himself in an attempt to stop a flock of crows that were tormenting the town they were living in.
Current Situation: After the revelation that Cyclops was one of the Twelve, Scott and Jean rejoined the X-Men to help deal with the situation. During the final battle with Apocalypse, Scott sacrificed himself to prevent En Sabah Nur from gaining the body of Nate Grey. Jean claimed to be able to still sense Scott's mind in the body of Apocalypse, but Xavier and other telepaths have been unable to confirm that. Unless otherwise proven, Cyclops is dead. to confirm that. Unless otherwise proven, Cyclops is dead. yclops is dead.
