X-Men Intro(Anime Version)

The X-Men, a group of superhuman called mutants that was organized and founded by Professor Charles Xavier. His aim why he organized this mutants: First, to train mutants how to control and use of their superhuman powers, and secondly, to serve as combat team that will defend humanity against attacks by other powerful mutants aside from them who use their powers for evil purposes, as well as against other threats. The identities of the X-Men are unknown to the people. In their civilian identities the X-Men are just official students or alumni on Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. The School, where the X-Men are based is in Charles Xavier's mansion at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Salem Center, Westchester County, New York. The Mansion serves as the X-Men's base of operations, training center, and quarters. The true identities of two of the X-Men's founding members, the Angel and the Beast, become public known, they have apparently managed somehow to conceal the fact that they attended Xavier's school from public awareness. Each member of the X-Men is a superhuman mutant. There have been exceptions, such as the Mimic, who could duplicate the superhuman powers of mutants, and Longshot, artificially created, genetically engineered humanoid from another dimensional world...

Cyclops: Scott Summers

CyclopsReal Name: Scott Summers

Scott Summers, the older of the two sons of Major Christopher Summers, a pilot in the U. S. Air Force. Major Summers flew with his wife Katherine, and his sons Scott and Alex( a.k.a. as Havoc) back from a vacation in his vintage private plane. During the flight, the plane was attacked and set on fire by a scout ship from the alien Shi'ar Empire. Scott and Alex were pushed out the plane door by her mother with the only available parachutes. The parachute however, was unable to slow their fall that would prevent Scott from suffering a head injury on landing. (The injury damaged the part of Scott's brain that would have enabled him to control his optic blasts.)

The two were separated: Alex was adopted, and Scott remained comatose in a hospital for a year. Their parents were believed dead. (The mere fact, that they were taken as prisoner by the Shi'ar; Katharine died after but Christopher later became Corsair, leader of the Starjammers, a group of interstellar adventurers.)

Cyclops Best Scene

After his recovery, Scott was placed in an orphanage in Omaha, Nebraska that was secretly controlled by his future enemy Mister Sinister. As a teenager, he suffers from severe headaches and eyestrain. He was sent to an eye specialist in Washington, D. C., who discovered that lenses made of ruby quartz corrected the problem. While Scott was visiting a large city, his developing mutant power to project optic force beams bursting towards in an uncontrollable blast that demolished a crane, causing it to drop towards the terrified crowd. Scott saved the crowd by wiping the object out with another blast, but they turned into an angry mob, thinking he tries to kill them. He fled, escaping on a train.

F.B.I. agent Fred Duncan and Professor Charles Xavier unite and joined forces in their attempt to find Scott. A mutant known as Jack O' Diamonds, and later as the Living Diamond, forced the frightened boy to aid him in his crimes. Xavier rescued Scott from the Living Diamond and enlisted him as the first member of the team of young mutants he would teach in using their powers, the X-Men.

As Cyclops, Scott soon became the leader of the Original X-Men. Falling in love to his teammate Jean Grey, although his reserve and his worries about the dangers of his optic beams prevented him for years from expressing his feelings to her. When the other original X-Men left the team, Cyclops stayed on as deputy leader of the "new" X-Men. After the cosmic entity called the Phoenix Force secretly placed Jean in suspended animation and impersonated her, adopting a form identical to hers. When this Phoenix committed suicide, Scott believed that the real Jean had died, then he left the X-Men. Eventually he returned to the team and met and married Madelyne Pryor, a woman who was resemble Jean. Scott was unaware that she was the clone of Jean created by the villain Mister Sinister. Scott and Madelyne had a baby son, named Nathan Christopher, and after that Scott again left the X-Men.

The real Jean Grey emerged from suspended animation. Scott left his wife and joined with Jean and the other original X-Men founding a new team, the original X-Factor. Madelyne went mad, developing new superhuman powers, and died in combat with Jean Grey. Later, Apocalypse infected Nathan with a techno-organic virus. To save his life, Scott was forced to allow a time traveling member of the Askani cult to transport Nathan to the 30th century of an alternate future.

After Professor Xavier returned from a long sojourn in space with the Starjammers, Cyclops and the other X-Factor members rejoined the X-Men. Ever since then Cyclops has remained with the X-Men, sharing deputy leadership with Storm.

Scott and Jean were finally married. While they were on their honeymoon, Mother Askani, leader of the Askani cult, drew their spirits two millennia into an alternate future, where they inhabited new bodies. There, as Slym and Redd, they spent years raising young Nathan into his early adolescence. Then Scott and Jean returned to their own time and bodies, and Nathan remained to grow up into his time's greatest hero, Cable....

Mutant Ability: Possesses the mutant ability to project a blast of powerful, ruby-colored force from his eyes. Cyclops's eyes are no longer the ordinary human eyes but a complex organic jelly that utilizes the visible spectrum of light to see the world around it. When his powers are drained from use he recharges it by the light of the sun.....
