- ―Christopher Summers
Christopher Summers was born in Spokane, Washington on January 26, 1965. Born into a military family, Christopher was forced to move around a lot as a child including Anchorage, Alaska and British Columbia, Canada before eventually settling in Buffalo, New York.
In High School, Christopher was the star of his basketball team and dated Moira Kinross and Katherine. However, in his senior year, he was kicked off the basketball team and enlisted in the Air Force, leaving Katherine behind, but promising to come back for her. Before he left, Christopher unknowingly got Katherine pregnant.
Christopher excelled in the Air Force and graduated at the top of his class. Summers was later deployed to Kuwait early in the Gulf War as a combat pilot where he served alongside Charles Xavier and Joseph Pryde.
In 1998, while Christopher flew the family back from a vacation in his vintage private plane, a de Havilland Mosquito, the plane was set ablaze by a supposed gas leak. Christopher's wife, Katherine, pushed their sons, Scott and Alex (later Cyclops and Havok of the X-Men), out with one of the only two parachutes available. The three managed to survive the plane crash, however Christopher was separated from Katherine and Lucas during the crash and was captured by Sinister.
Thinking he was dead, Katherine, Lucas and the rest of the Summers family with the exception of Scott and Alex (who were now in the care of their birth mother and her fiancé.) held a funeral service for him after healing from their injuries.

Christopher Summers was a bit of a narcissist with a sarcastic sense of humor. However, he was also a very stern, proud and brave individual with a very strong belief in family, in particular the Summers name. Though he could be a loving father, he more often than not showed his sons tough love while growing up.
