Prof. X needn’t have to die, not that way...

Charles Xavier is disappointing. So are Magneto, Wolverine, Storm, and all those fighting each other in the X-Men: The Last Stand. The problem is, both sides – X-Men and Magneto’s Men are forcing what they want on others. This is against human (I bet mutant, too) nature.

Here’s a simple solution to the problem in The Last Stand:

Worthington Industries should be allowed to develop any medical technology (if it thinks it is profitable), including the cure to treat genetic mutation . What the government can do is just to make sure that the medicine has all the information for the consumers. For example: “This medicine is to convert any mutant into human. It is not reversible. Take it at your own risk”. What the government should not do is to force mutants to become human. What X-Men (and all other mutants for that matter) can do is not to take the cure if they are happy with what they are now (like Angel), or take it if they are not (like Rogue).

I know for sure, my solution wouldn’t make a good movie.



  1. aha!!! you're not patient enough to wait until the end of the title rite?
    at the end of the movie, there's a scene when one hospital accept one patient with the name... guees who? "xavier"... so much for a chauvinist marvel's lover!!!

  2. is that right, dHani? then i missed it. but even if xavier is alive, i hope he becomes less paternalistic :-) same to magneto, who eventually regains his strength.

  3. dhani is right, and the woman who realized Prof X is reincarnated is Moira, his unrequitted love. even Stan Lee put some love spices in his comic.

    Magneto, Phoenix and Professor X; all of them are immortal class 6 mutants. this movie missed Jean Grey-Cyclops wedding -apparently they have kids- and one of the most notable X-crew : Gambit. he is supposed to be Rouge's boyf, i wonder why he is not mentioned at all.

    but then again, we're here to discuss the art of compromise, not the history of X-Men...

  4. sorry, but i dont really agree with you :)

    just like Storm say... something like this: nothing to be changed, this is the way you are...

    but i agree with the freedom of choice they should have.
