    Default Scott Summers, bipolar?

    Has very low depressive moments and extremely hyper capable moments

    Morrisonís run as a drunk, Uncanny Cmen 11
    And then all the moments oh him being a badass

    If I misinterpreted what itís like to be bipolar I apologize

    No, his moods are perfectly explained by what happens around him, bipolarity does not work like that.

    What I have always suspected is that he may have an obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    No.

    Scott doesn't have a disorder. This is just how he is currently being written at the current moment.

    Bipolar and several other disorders wouldn't really fit Scott across the board. It be pretty dangerous territory to give him a disorder at this stage of the game as well, simply do to the misrepresentation it would hold over the length of the characters life.

    I think you can make a fine case for him having clinical depression and yes, maybe OCD, but not bipolar disorder.

    You could fill the entire punch dimension with the therapy bills this guy should be piling up. Y'know, if there weren't comics to print.

    Hank Pym was only revealed to be bipolar a few years ago, so just the fact he's been around since the silver age isn't an excuse. The bigger issue here is that it can be hereditary. Which means if he had it, then Cable, X-Man, and Prestige could have it too. Also, another comic is already exploring bipolar disorder. Unstoppable Wasp. Like father, like daughter, you see. Nadia is bipolar.

    Scott might be autistic though.

    At this point every single marvel hero is a barely functional psychological wreck.

    Well, it's not like Cable did not also have paranoid traits. In the Jeen's comic Hope even jokes with it as something hereditary of the Summers.

    In All-New All-Different X-Men is even mentioned and implies OCD with Tyke

    I don't know, Kamala Khan and many of the younger characters still seem functional. That must be stopped.

    I don't want to sound crazy, but couldn't it be argued that OCD is just a part of his powers? Like, don't his powers allow him to see patterns or geometric lines and that's part of how he aims so well?

    I think a power like that would probably end up making anyone a bit OCD because you'd be able to tell if something was out of place.

    Nope. He has your standard issue Marvel ANGST! All white, male heroes are required to have it at some point. Symptoms mostly involve rooftops and rain.

    As someone with OCD, I don't see OCD in him at all. Even pure O. What is his uncontrollable, recurring thought that causes him distress, and may result in compulsive behavior? That's the hallmark of OCD.

    No

    He does lots of self loathing. He puts the blame of everything on his shoulders this allows others less pressure.
