History : (From Unofficial Marvel Handbook)
When Scott Summers’ father, now known as Corsair, and his family were being abducted by aliens, he pushed his two sons out of their plane with only one parachute for both. They survived the fall, but Scott, the eldest, suffered a year-long coma and was diagnosed with irreparable brain damage, which ultimately has led to difficulty in controlling his mutant power to this day. Now effectively orphaned, the Summers brothers were separated, and Scott ended up in an orphanage that was ran by the enigmatic villain known as Mr. Sinister. Mr. Sinister noticed Summers’ mutant potential immediately, and often subjected him to subversive experiments.

As a teen, Summers began to develop severe headaches and eyestrain, and was taken to a specialist in Washington DC, where Summers first exhibited his optic blast, destroying a construction crane. Summers fled into the city and was forced into an unwanted partnership with the mutant criminal Jack Winters, the Jack O’Diamonds (later, the Living Diamond.) Summers was also being sought by the mutant teacher, Professor Charles Xavier, and the Professor freed Summers from Winter’s domination and offered him a position as the first student of his new “School for Gifted Youngsters,” and thus the first mutant hero team, the X-men.

Summers served as a member (and soon, field leader) of the X-men for quite some time, and stayed on board when all the other original members left. There, he met the love of his life, Jean Grey (now, Phoenix), a fellow X-men, and was reunited with his brother, who became a fellow X-man.

At one point, when Jean Grey was impersonated by the Phoenix Force and destroyed, Summers believed her to be truly dead. He left the X-men and became a fisherman. Soon afterward, abducted by the alien Brood, Summers fought alongside the X-men once more, and learned the truth about his father. Returning to Alaska to visit his grandparents, Summers met Madeline Pryor (unknown to him to be a clone of Jean Grey), whom he quickly fell in love and married, due to her remarkable similarities to Jean Grey. The two soon had a son, Nathan Christopher (later, Cable.)

When Jean Grey resurfaced, Scott abandoned Madelyne and the baby to join with the original X-men in posing as the mutant hunting X-factor, really a front for the manipulating mutant hater, Cameron Hodge. Hodge pushed Summers to the point of mental breakdown because of his love triangles, before being discovered. During his time with X-factor, he saved his son, who had been kidnapped by Sinister. He also led X-factor in fighting Madelyne as the Goblin Queen, and later fought the super villain Apocalypse, who forced Summers to give up his son to a member of the future Askani clan– the only way to save him from the techno-organic virus Apocalypse infected him with. Soon after, Summers returned to the X-men. (Months later, an adult Cable would return to this reality, and although he often teamed up with Summers and the X-men, leading their associates the New Mutants and X-Force, it would be still many more months before Cable revealed the truth of his origins and reconcile with Cyclops and Grey.)

Summers continued to serve the X-men, briefly leading a contingent known as the “Blue Team,” and finally realized his love for Jean Grey in marriage. During their honeymoon away from the team, both Summers and Grey were transported to the future by a member of the Askani clan, where they met Rachel Summers, a child of Summers and Grey from another timeline and the leader of the Askani clan. The two posed as citizens of that world while raising Summers’ son, the future Cable, in his childhood, and defeating Apocalypse in that timeline. Returning, the couple continued to adventure with the X-men, and when Prof. X left the team, Summers assumed full-time leadership.
