The younger brother of the reluctant leader of the X-Men, Cyclops, Alex Summers has been fighting for the peaceful coexistence of mutants and humans most of his life. Gifted with the ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body and processes it into a blast that is so hot, the byproduct is plasma, Alex and his brothers are powerful adversaries. Originally a seasonal member of the X-Men with his long-time love Polaris, Alex has been mind controlled many times to battle his teammates and loved ones, even having an affair with his brother's wife Madelyne Pryor-Summers. After being informed of the many terrorist attacks of mutants, Alex left Lorna and joined the X-Men, until he entered the Siege Perilous and exited a Genoshian Magistrate. After being reminded of who he really was, Alex stayed on Genosha to aid with the rebuilding, until Professor Charles Xavier and Cyclops asked him to lead a new team of X-Factor. Always believing he was under the shadow of his brother, the brilliant tactician, Alex worked hard to prove himself as a Summers. After joining the Brotherhood, Alex was sent to an alternate Earth, where he took over the life of his alternate that was married to the Madelyne Pryor of that era and had a son, Scotty Summers. After returning, Alex awoke from a coma and Cyclops put him in charge of a team of X-Men. After learning of his long-lost brother, Gabriel Summers, Alex went into Shi'ar space and has joined the Starjammers.
Avengers vs X-MenEdit
Havok joins the conflict between the Avengers and the X-Men on the side of his fellow mutants. After the last two Phoenixes; Cyclops and Emma Frost begin to lose control, Havok and many other X-Men join the Avengers in attempting to defeat them, Cyclops finally defeated Emma in order to absorb the whole Phoenix Force and became the Dark Phoenix, but was finally defeated and incarcerated.
At the end of the war, Captain America realized that the Avengers should've done more to help mutants, and allowed the world to hate them. As a result, he formed a new team of Avengers in hopes of unify mutant and humankind. He chose Havok to lead his team and become the new face to represent mutants as Professor X and Cyclops once were. Their first threat was a brain-washed Avalanche, who was sent by Red Skull in order to create chaos and increase the fear against mutants. The Avengers managed to save innocent citizens from Avalanche's destruction, although he latter dissapeared from the scene.
After the attack Alex helped in the search for survivors but there was non. However, one of those who were saved by Alex thanked him and told he doesn't care what the world think about mutants all he cares about is that Havok saved him and his daughter and there isn't enough heroes in the world.
Powers and AbiliitesEdit
Alex is a mutant.
Ambient Energy Conversion: Havok absorbs ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body and processes it into plasma. This results in control over an extremely powerful sort of destructive force. At times he is not entirely able to control this ability, which sometimes makes him a danger to those around him unless he wears a special containment suit to assist him. Havok’s body is constantly in the process of absorbing cosmic radiation. When each of his body’s power-storage cell enclaves reaches its capacity, excess cosmic energy is thereafter absorbed and immediately re-emitted in negligible quantities. Upon the total expenditure of all his available energy, it takes Havok’s body about 16 ½ hours to recharge to its peak level unless he absorbs a large amount of energy at once. The act of concentration involved in releasing his energy in anything other than an omni-directional wave is physically exhausting for Havok if he continues it over an extended period of time. He can absorb cosmic energies from his environment (such as starlight, x-rays, and gamma radiation) and store them within his body cells, metabolizing the energy in order to generate plasma wave discharges that super-heat and disintegrate objects or create concussion bursts by violently displacing air molecules in his path. His ability to absorb energy is so great that he was able to survive being dropped into a large Star, and use its energy to augment his powers to the point he easily overpowered and beat his brother Vulcan.
Plasma Emanation: Ability to shoot or emanate plasma in the form of a blast or discharge, with a tell-tale concentric circle pattern. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms. This results in control over an extremely powerful sort of destructive force. When Havok strikes an object with the waves of intensity of hot plasma, the sudden vast jump in temperature will often cause objects to shatter, explode, or seemingly disintegrate. Should Havok direct his energy at the lowest level, he can project it towards a human being and his target will suffer a severe headache but will not burn up.
Heat Immunity: Havok is virtually immune to the effects of most forms of heat.
Radiation Immunity: Havok is virtually immune to the effects of most forms of radiation.
Intellectually gifted, Havok is well-educated in the geophysical sciences and has been trained in martial arts by Wolverine.
Uncontrolled Ambient Energy Conversion: At times, he is not entirely able to control this ability, which sometimes makes him a danger to those around him unless he wears a special containment suit to assist him. This may also be due to psychological trauma similar to his brother.
Genetic Flaw: Havok is not immune to Vulcan's powers, but is partially resistant to it by way of his ability to absorb energy. Havok is immune to Cyclops' optic blasts as Cyclops is immune to his powers.
