Cyclops is the somewhat famous, somewhat infamous, leader of the vigilante mutant team knowns as the X-Men. Fairly respected by the hero community and most mutant leaders, he is very distrusted by the American authorities (exception might be SHIELD) and pretty much demonized by the mainstream media as part of the Mutant Menace.

* 2003 Scott wakes up and goes through a painful year-long rehab. Suffering brain damage and amnesiac. He is sent to an orphanage in Nebraska instead of being sent to his grandparents in Alaska. The orphanage director is one Doctor Nathaniel Milbury, who much later was revealed to be the super-criminal Mr. Sinister.

Despite the older mutant overwhelming power, they manage to defeat him through teamwork and Xavier's psychic powers. Scott is made field leader of the team much to his chagrin. Later that year they help the gathered armies of Earth super-heroes agains the alien invasion. Despite getting a good reputation among fellow heroes, they are hated by the public and considered part of the Mutant Menace.

The Bad:
Too serious. Control freak. Brooding. Boring. Workaholic.

Those words are often used to describe Scott. First impressions are usually bad, and he is all of that. He is an intensely private individual that had a very nasty childhood. He barely remembers anything from his first eight years of life, and the next eight were of chronic pain, abuse, bleakness and lack of friends. All that turned Scott into a stern introvert that desperately needs to control his life and the situation around himself. Xavier tutoring and some years of experience have granted him some patience and tolerance for the flaws of others, but he is still a very driven individual that rarely 'loosens up'.

The Good:
Having a deadly and uncontrollable superpower and being put in a leadership position since he was a teen has forced Scott to become a very careful individual. He knows total control is impossible, but he strives to come as close as possible. A realist and somewhat pessimistic person (he also seems to have tremendous bad luck) Scott always plans for the worst, and usually has all the angles covered, which makes him a great tactician and manager. He is not charismatic, but he is very dependable (not predictable - he scrupulously avoids being predictable) and very reliable. Even those who dislike him know he will always be there, watching the backs of his allies, a backup plan or three in mind. It gets him respect, but not many friends.

To his few friends he is extremely loyal, and when they can get him to relax, he is also good company, a friendly ear, very patient, and with good deal of common sense and good advice to offer. He can also smile and laugh, and even deliver mercilessly effective deadpan jokes. Don't expect Scott to get drunk, though, he is too afraid of what his optic blasts can do. A can of beer a day is as far as he goes.

Character Sheet

Optic Blasts:
Scott's eyes draw energy from another dimension, store it, and then project powerful blasts of force. The blasts also project some red-toned light, but the bulk of the energy is not electromagnetic but raw physical force. At full power the blasts are powerful enough to destroy main battle tanks, punch through battleship armor and cause serious damage even against the most powerful super-beings on Earth. Scott very rarely uses his full power, and he can't do so for long. He paces himself, favoring mid-level blasts and surgical strikes delivered with incredible precision.

Power Immunity:
Scott is invulnerable to his own blasts. They will get absorbed by his body before even damaging his clothes. He is also invulnerable to Havok's blasts, which hints his brother has exactly the same powers, only Alex' manifest as heat, not force.

Spatial Awareness:
To better control Scott's power, the portion of the brain that manages spatial awareness is far more developed in him than in a normal human. The effects of this ability are subtle but useful, and give Scott superhuman accuracy with his power and anything else that requires aiming. He has learned to ricochet his blasts on hard surfaces, and it is foolish to challenge him to bowling, darts, pool or similar games. It also helps him with his piloting skills, and he rarely gets dizzy, lost or disoriented.

Scott has a B.S. in mechanical engineering, a title he got to make sure he knew how to maintain and repair the Blackbird and other airplanes. His skills also extend to internal combustion engine and electrical vehicles. He likes to thinker with motorcycles and cars, but his passion is airplanes.

First Aid:
Scott has some training at dealing with battlefield injuries and can usually patch up someone after a fight. Seeing bones right, bandaging injuries and even performing simple surgery such as extracting bullets.

Martial Arts:
Scott is an accomplished martial artist easily equivalent to a Special Forces soldier or SHIELD field agent with extensive knowledge in Aikido, Judo and Krav Maga. He has trained for years to make sure he is able to do his part in the team even if his powers can't be used. He has even trained extensively to blind-fight in the case he loses his glasses and visor.

Scott is the best pilot among the X-Men and a very good airplane pilot all around. He has countless hours of practice on the Blackbird cabin, but he is also able to handle most other small craft and helicopters. Large airplanes he lacks experience, but he could manage taking of and landing of even a 747 under normal circumstances.

Strong Will:
Scott has well-tempered nerves and doesn't scare easily. He is always in control, particularly of himself, and thanks to Xavier's extensive training, he can usually recognize when someone else is trying to influence him using super-powers. It is difficult to read his mind, and almost impossible to control it.

Scott is one of the best small unit tacticians of the world. As leader of the X-Men he spends several hours every day in the Danger Room testing scenarios, tactics and simulations. His priority is always to lead the X-Men to victory and prevent more casualties among its ranks. He is always planning, plotting and calculating how to get out the best of each individual and how to combine the abilities and skills of several teammates for the best effect. Obsessive and very organized, it is rare to catch him without a solid plan, four backup plans and seven exit strategies.

Scott has a collection of ruby quartz glasses so he can go around and not blow up anything he looks at. He also owns a special visor that helped him focus his blasts better when he was younger. Right now he has much better control, but the visor is still useful because it is far sturdier than regular glasses and provides better peripheral vision.

The Summers:
It is a crazy powerful clan, but that is a known fact.

What is not so well known is the Summers are pretty wealthy. Scott grandparents own an airplane company.

And his dad is a Space Pirate who owns a huge and powerful starship.

It needs to be mentioned twice: SPACE PIRATE.

As leader of the X-Men Scott commands fairly impressive resources in the form of very high-tech equipment and a team of super-powered agents. He has the highest clearance among Xavier followers and although it is likely Xavier is hiding a few things even from him, there is a good deal of thrust between both men. Personally he has a modest salary as high school teacher, and since he has no other expenses he owns nice car and a powerful motorcycle.

Uncontrolled Power:
Scott suffered brain damage as a child and as a consequence he can't consciously control his powers. His eyes are always generating energy, and the only ways to control it are closing them and a fairly expensive form of synthetic quartz. Those glasses are pretty good, but they do somewhat distort colors. Everything is red-ish.

Weight of the World:
Sometimes Scott is his own worst enemy. He is a very responsible young man, and he worries too much about most everything. As X-Men leader that is a lot of everything. On top of that, fate seems to hate him. His bad luck is almost at Spider-Man's levels. And don't get me started with his family, particularly his time traveling kids.
