PREPARED BY CHARLES XAVIEREdit
Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters Student Record: Cyclops
Given Name: Scott Summers
Nation of Origin: USA
Enrolled: First Class
Grade Point Average (GPA): 3.75
Danger Room Median Success Rate (DRMSR): 8.90
Active Mutations: None.
Passive Mutations: After many long years of study, I at last discovered that Scott’s body absorbs ambient energy that allows him to project a beam of concussive force from his eyeballs.
I beg your pardon -- I misspoke. “Allow” is not quite accurate. Because his body always generates this energy, the “overflow” has one avenue of escape -- through his eye sockets. Scott must wear protective eyeglasses at all times to protect others from his constantly-projecting eye-blasts. That, or spend the rest of his life his eyelids closed.
Hereditary Mutation? Yes. Scott’s two brothers, Alex (Codename: “Havok”) and Gabriel (Codename: “Vulcan”) are both mutants, indicating the presence of a latent X-Gene somewhere on their family tree.
Student Background: The orphaned Scott was separated from his parents at an early age. When his powers first manifested themselves he was frightened and confused and fell in with a group of criminals. With the help of the FBI I was able to free Scott from their clutches and it was then that I realized my fellow mutants needed an alternative to those who would exploit their powers for evil. I subsequently founded my school for gifted students, and enrolled Scott as its first student.
Notes: Scott has flourished in a way I could have scarcely imagined when I first founded my school. He has grown into an effective leader of the X-Men and, well... I endeavor to avoid sentiment in these reports, but in many ways he is the proverbial son I never had. But I must remind him from time-to-time that for all his talents he has tendency toward high-mindedness he needs to keep in check.
