Scott's father was a geneticist, who was obsessed with the mutant X-Gene. He experimented on both Scott, and his brother Alex. He knew for a fact that Scott was a mutant, Alex's X-Gene seemed to be dormant. Eventually, Scott's mother grew to hate their father and filed for divorce. The court allowed Alex to go with their mother, but Scott was forced to remain with his father. One day, an experiment went wrong and Scott's powers finally acted up, instantly blowing his father's head off. Scott became terrified and lasers would blast out of his eyes at random points, and he never knew when it was going to happen.
Scott was taken to to juvie after killing his father. He remained there for three years, trying to stay away from the gangs and bullies, hoping he would be the same person when he got out. Eventually his powers acted up again, he was given a helmet that constantly kept his eyes closed, putting him through torture every day.
When Scott was sixteen, he was visited by a man named Charles Xavier, the former superhero, Mentallo. Charles gave Scott a pair of sunglasses that kept his lasers in check. He offered Scott the chance to join a team of mutants called the X-Men. Scott jumped at the chance to be around people like him and became Xavier's first recruit.
