Best Cyclops Costume Guide
Cyclops is a Marvel superhero and founding member of the X-Men team that was originally created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. First appearing in X-Men #1, Scott Summers is a mutant with a special power of shooting powerful beams of energy from his eyes. The character also appeared in the popular X-Men movie, portrayed by James Marsden. We also got a glimpse into his younger years in the X-Men: Origins films. By controlling the beams with the aid of special eyewear, Cyclops fights off the bad guys with optical blasts from his eyes. Get the look of the original X-Men member with this Cyclops costume guide.
Cyclops keeps his look pretty simple, so you only really need a few items to cosplay his X-Men style! Start with an X-Men Cyclops Jacket, a pair of Black Leather Pants, Men’s Black Combat Shoes, and Black Leather Gloves. Of course, Cyclops literally can’t go anywhere without his Cyclops Sunglasses to keep his powers in check!

Cyclops, who also goes by his real name, Scott Summers, is a mutant kid who was never quite normal growing up. As a young boy, Scott and his brother Alex survived a plane crash that killed his parents. The outcast mutant, Scott, was later found in an orphanage and taken in by Charles Xavier. He was later chosen as the first member to lead the team of mutants known as the X-Men. The Marvel character first appeared in The X-Men #1 in September 1963.
