Comments: Scott Summers, one of Professor Charles Xavier's first recruits, is stalwart leader of the X-Men. Xavier took in Scott in to his "Institute for Gifted Children" in Westchester County, New York when he discovered the young man's uncontrollable ability to release immensely destructive force beams from his eyes, and began training the boy in the use of his incredible power. Scott firmly believes in the professor's dream of human and mutant coexistence. Cyclops possesses the mutant ability to project a beam of concussive force from his eyes. Unable to control the blasts, Cyclops prevents the energy from escaping by wearing ruby-quartz lenses - the only substance able to diffuse his awesome power.
