Havok, real name Alexander "Alex" Summers, is a mutant and can emit red energy blasts, an ability he has had difficulty controlling. He is the young brother of Scott Summers. He is a member of the New Mutants and later X-Force.


When Alex was a boy growing up, his father, USAF Major Christopher Summers, took the family for a flight to Hawaii. It came under attack by a Shi'ar spaceship. As the plane went down in flames, his parents fastened Alex and Scott into a parachute and pushed them off the plane in hopes that they would survive. Alex was separated from his brother, whom Alex believed to have died. He was later adopted by the Masters family and lived his life in Hawaii, where he pursue a professional surfing career.

At fifteen years old, Alex manifested his powers during a shark attack. After repelling the shark, Alex was approached by Magneto who informed him about Scott's survival and offered him guidance to control his ability. Once Alex was reunited his brother, Magneto offered them the same proposition to Alex a machine on Asteroid M that would control their powers. Although Alex readily accept Magneto's offer, Scott eventually rejected; in which Alex decide to follow his brother's example. Alex and Scott learned from Avalanche of Magneto's true intentions of wiping out Earth with a passing meteor shower and battled the Brotherhood alongside the X-Men. Afterward, Alex Scott, and Superman combined their powers in destroying Asteroid M from crashing into Earth's surface. Thereafter, Alex decide to continue living in Hawaii rather than joining the X-Men.

During the winter holidays, Alex was visit by Scott. While surfing in an approaching storm, Alex was dragged into the violent ocean. He was saved by Scott, but weren't able to escape the storm and found themselves shipwrecked on an island. There they soon discovered that island is being excavated by Doctor Doom. Shortly they were found by Siryn and held as prisoners. Superman arrived to rescue them, but it was part of Doom's plan to offer the superhero an Orb of Agamotto that he had excavated to use it return to his home planet Krypton. Alex witnessed Superman destroying the Orb and stating to Doom that his planet is long destroyed and he is its last survivor. Alex and his brother were brought to safety, and Alex was returned to Hawaii.

After mutants became public, Alex joined the institute full-time, becoming a member of the New Mutants shortly before they 'graduated' to become X-Force. He has since developed an attraction to his teammate Polaris, and was present during Earth's first full contact with Brainiac when he, Polaris, Phantom and Mark were abducted by Brainiac while they were part of a team seeking the command codes for Sentrius.
