The character of Scott Summers was often the measuring stick for where the X-Men were as a group. His growth and maturity often mirrored the team's, as even from a young age he felt compelled to lead. Combined with his impressive power set, it has made him into one of the most popular characters Marvel has, and over the years most have developed their favorite version of the X-Men leader.
From the classic yellow and blue uniforms of the original X-Men to his latest red and black Marvel NOW reincarnation, the character continues to be a favorite among fans. Some preferred the boy scout days of the 80's and 90's, while others loved the calculating strategist of the 2000's. His look has generally changed with every shakeup in focus, some more successful than others.
