First Appearance: The Phoenix Saga, Part Two
|Christopher Summers life changed forever when his plane crashed. He and his wife strapped their eldest son, Scott into a parachute, and tied his little brother Alex to him, and pushed them out to their safety. Whilst Scott and Alex fell to their safety, Summers and his wife were teleported to a Shíiar cruiser by DíKen.
