"It must burn you up that a boy like me saved your life, huh? Gotta be careful. I might not be there next time. Oh, and Logan - stay away from my girl."
―Scott Summers[src]

Scott Summers or Cyclops is a mutant whose eyes constantly emit beams of concussive force. He became one of Professor X's first students and the field leader for the X-Men.


X-Men: First Class

While Charles Xavier used Cebero to locate other mutants, a boy with sunglasses and a baseball glove is shown. It is likely a small cameo of Scott. It is also possible that they ruled out younger, more powerful mutant (i.e.- Storm) due to age.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

He is first seen being scolded and sent to detention by his teacher for wearing his protective sunglasses in class. Later, while copying words on a blackboard as punishment, he is attacked by Victor Creed who wants to capture him for William Stryker's mutant experiments. During the chase, Cyclops' sunglasses fall off and his optic blasts damage the school building.

He is finally taken captive and temporarily incapacitated with a carbon blindfold over his eyes, but is soon freed when a vengeful Wolverine attacks Stryker's facility. While escaping, Cyclops makes use of his eye beams to annihilate Stryker's minions, being pointed in the right direction by Emma. He is then guided by the telepathic voice of Professor X who leads him and the other mutants to safety. Outside, he meets Professor X for the first time, and he and the other mutants leave with in the X-Jet.


"If they have anything that can pick up our jet, they deserve to catch us."

After years of being taught by Xavier, Summers became leader of his X-Men and a teacher at his school. He also developed a romantic relationship with Jean Grey. Summers and Ororo Munroe rescued Logan and Marie from a fire in Logan's caravan and from Sabretooth who had been sent by Erik Lehnsherr, and brought them back to Xavier's school. After properly meeting Logan, the pair had many minor arguments with Logan, usually due Logan's attraction to Jean Grey, but nevertheless Summers effectively led the X-Men to stop Magneto's attempt to turn world leaders into mutants using a device on the Statue of Liberty.

During a school excursion to the museum of natural history shortly after the incident at the Statue of Liberty, Jean told Scott that she felt that something terrible was about to occur. Scott assured Jean that he would not let anything happen to her.

Later, Summers accompanied Charles Xavier to Erik Lehnsherr's plastic prison. While waiting for Xavier, a drugged Yuriko Oyama and her guards attacked Cyclops. Despite his struggles, she knocked him out and took Summers and Xavier to Stryker's facility at Alkali Lake.

After Stryker brainwashes him, he has Summers wait for the X-Men. He found Erik Lehnsherr, Raven Darkholme and Jean Grey and he fired his optic blasts but Grey sensed it, pushed Lehnsherr and Darkholme out of the way and told them to go. Grey fought against Summers while attempting to break Stryker's brainwashing and during the struggle, Summers' blasts caused the lake's dam to collapse.

After successfully breaking through Stryker's brainwashing, Summers and Grey escaped from Stryker's facility and entered the Blackbird but the dam had already begun giving way. Jean got out of the jet and seemingly sacrificed her life to stop the water hitting the Blackbird.

"Not everybody heals as fast as you, Logan."

After spending many months mourning Jean's death and unable to cope with his grief, a withdrawn Cyclops returns to Alkali Lake. He hears Jean's voice and begs for it to stop. He then unleashes the full force of his optic blast to make it stop, but then out of the water, Jean appears. She tells him to take off his ruby quartz glasses because she says she can control his powers. When Scott removes his protective lenses, Jean's power neutralizes his optic blast and his eyes become normal blue eyes.

However, lacking complete control over the Phoenix, Jean apparently kills him off screen as they kiss. His supposed death is not shown onscreen although he is assumed dead by the rest of the team. Though his body is never found, his ruby-quartz glasses are later seen floating in the air around the lake. At the end of the film, his grave can be seen, next to Jean's and Xavier's.



Behind the scenes

  • Cyclops had very little screen time in The Last Stand due to Marsden's filming of Superman Returns.
  • Due to Wolverine being portrayed as the main character, Cyclops is relegated as a supporting character in the movies despite being a main character in the comics.
  • Actor James Marsden wore platform shoes In reality, he is actually under 6' 0", shorter than Famke Janssen who plays his love interest, Jean Grey, and even shorter than Hugh Jackman who played Wolverine.
  • Tim Picock was unfamilar with the X-Men comics, but watched the X-Men: Evolution cartoon to research what his character would be like at that age.


  • In the comics, due to a brain injury, Cyclops is unable to shut off his optic blasts at will and must therefore wear a visor or glasses with ruby quartz lenses that block the beams.
  • In the first X-Men film many fans claimed that Cyclops' visor seemed too bulky. As a result they were changed for X2: X-Men United.
