Of course, something had to be done with the gems themselves following the fall of Thanos. This particular gem grants its wielder enhanced mental powers, which Xavier already possessed to some degree. After all, how many villains would take it upon themselves to rip out the brain of Charles Xavier in order to use it for nefarious means? Well, to eliminate the mutant race, of course!

Through a highly convoluted series of events that includes heroes becoming villains and villains becoming heroes, Red Skull was eventually stripped of his brain-fueled abilities.
High-profile comic book characters that have been around for years have racked up a number of WTF moments, including Xavier. While Nova ended up being stillborn, a bizarre — bizarre even by comic book standards — series of occurrences led to Nova eventually gaining physical form. In turn, this led to her performing such vengeful actions against her brother such as unleashing Sentinels on Genosha, which caused the death of over 16 million mutants.
The seemingly dynamically opposed mutants are really just two sides of the same coin. Both seek a similar outcome and have vastly different ways of achieving said outcome.

He later grows up to attend Oxford Universitywhere he earns a Professorship in Genetics and other science fields, and goes on to live in first Oxford and then London for a number of years. Crucially, as he enters late adolescence, Xavier inherits the mansion-house he was raised in, enabling him not only to continue to live in it, but also to turn it in to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, which he begins together with the first of the X-Men.
Brian, his father, dies in an accident when Xavier is still very young, and Brian's science partner Kurt Marko comforts and then marries the grieving Sharon. When Xavier's telepathic mutant powers emerge, he discovers Marko cares only about his mother's money.
After the wedding, Kurt moves in with the Xaviers, bringing with him his son Cain. Kurt quickly grows neglectful of Sharon, driving her to alcoholism, and abuses both Charles and Cain. Cain takes out his frustrations and insecurities on his stepbrother. Charles uses his telepathic powers to read Cain's mind and explore the extent of his psychological damage, which only leads to Cain becoming more aggressive toward him and the young Xavier feeling Cain's pain firsthand.
Mortally wounded, Kurt drags the two children out before dying, and admits he was partly responsible for Brian's death. Due to his powers, by the time he graduates from high school, Charles loses all of his hair.

Xavier uses his mental powers to break her out of her catatonia and the two fall in love. Xavier and Magneto become good friends, although neither immediately reveals to the other that he is a mutant.
The two hold lengthy debates hypothesizing what will happen if humanity is faced with a new super-powered race of humans. While Xavier is optimistic, Magneto's experiences in the Holocaust lead him to believe that humanity will ultimately oppress the new race of humans as they have done with other minorities.
The two friends reveal their powers to each other when they fight Nazi Baron Wolfgang von Strucker and his Hydra agents, who kidnap Gabrielle because she knows the location of their secret cache of gold. Magneto attempts to kill Strucker but Xavier stops him.

During this time, Xavier assembles a team of younger mutants called the New Mutantssecretly intended to be prime hosts for reproduction of the aliens.
The X-Men discover this and return to free Xavier, but they are too late to prevent his body from being destroyed with a Brood Queen in its place; however, his soul remains intact.
The X-Men and Starjammers subdue this monstrous creature containing Xavier's essence, but the only way to restore him is to clone a new body using tissue samples he donated to the Starjammers and transfer his consciousness into the clone body.
This new body possesses functional legs, though the psychosomatic pain Xavier experienced after living so long as a paraplegic takes some time to subside. Subsequently, he even joins the X-Men in the field, but later decides not to continue this practice after realizing that his place is at the school, as the teacher of the New Mutants.

What were the five biggest movie letdowns of the summer? But circacultural divisions over race have been supplanted in the popular American consciousness by a debate over gay rights, and the latest X-Men film has updated Professor X and Magneto's adversarial relationship thusly. Sure, a lot of stuff blows up, so it's partly just a summer popcorn movie.
But the film can also be easily read as a gay pride allegory, as well as a story of true love gone horribly wrong. Now, about that sexual business in the storyline of the film. Don't fight it, folks. It's there, and it's real, and even James McAvoy is in on it. He says, "I think the movie would be less interesting, and much less fun, without [the romantic throughline]. I'm not sure, however, that the majority of moviegoers necessarily recognize the gay love affair, coded as it is, but I do think they'd notice its absence.
The late, great Vito Russo The Celluloid Closet would probably agree with this assertion, seeing as he found these kinds of coded gay relationships informing so many mainstream films over the decades.
Shortly thereafter, Erik and Charles set off to adopt a brood of X-babies they can raise at Xavier's mansion, during which Hugh Jackman 's Wolverine makes a brief cameo appearance and encourages the future superhero and supervillain to " go f--k yourselves.
