  2. That was already done in Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol though technically it was more that the Chief cured himself and kept his cure secret for as long as possible.

  3. Because when you can project thoughts into other people's heads, you really need to use props to trick them.

  4. He's the most powerful telepath on the planet, a member of the Marvel Illuminati, and founder of the most influential group of superhumans the Marvel universe has ever known.

    Jesus, I feel so bad for him.

  5. I'm pretty sure he did that at least once.

  6. Is he back to being in the wheelchair again? Last time I read X-Men was after the whole House of M thing and he was back to being able to walk around cause of magic or whatever. I don't think anyone would feel bad for him anyway, because you know it's just going to be a few months before he's up walking around again.

  7. I think he got the idea from the Twisted Toyfare Theater version, who fakes it because he's lazy.

  8. Why is he a jerk?

  9. Other end of the spectrum there. One guy just wants to hang with the X-men, and the other wants to find out that the X-men are just bastards. Both would consider their findings awesome.

    What a wonderful group of customers you have.

  10. Actually, it would be pretty awesome. That should be the final panel of the very last X-Men comic.

  11. I would NOT be surprised that it's already happened. But a scribe like Morrison or Moore would make that twist work, I am sure.

  12. FDR already did that. Haven't you seen insaneconspiracytheories.com?

  13. As a quadriplegic I have to say I hope not. If we lose Professor X we are back to only having super villains with severe physical disabilities. That would suck!

  14. @Jason: You still have Oracle. She's Batman's brains when his brains can't solve the problem, and she's tried to learn to move out of her chair. But as far as more Marvel quadriplegics... yeah, I'm drawing a blank.

  15. Could ghosts possess Prof. X's dead legs?

  16. @ Dave & Jason: Marvel semi have Flash Thompson, although he can walk for a bit as Venom

  17. Because Professor Xavier hasn't been vilified enough in recent years.
