By the late 1970s, Chris Bradley lived and worked at a carnival in Springfield, Ohio as a side-show act, where he had customers pay $1 in an attempt to turn off a light bulb - which many failed to do because Bradley's power of technopathy constantly kept the light on. One evening in 1979, Bradley was killed by Victor Creed so that his DNA could be used for Weapon XI.
By 1983, Scott Summers attended high school in Ohio. During a high school history lesson on mutants, his power manifested and he injured a bully intending on tormenting him, as well as causing property damage in his school's bathroom.

Alex drove Scott to Westchester, New York, where he enrolled his younger brother at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in hopes that his brother could harness and control his power before returning back to normal society.
