Default Re: Official Random X-Men One-Shots and Specials Thread

The whole point in revealing all those secrets was to wash away the idea that Charles Xavier was this halo-bearing saint. And I can see why they would do that, really. Having Charles be almost as morally ambiguous as Erik (but unwilling to cross many of the lines Erik crosses habitually) makes their long-standing friendship more believable. I can see Charles doing a few underhanded things to get his whole X-Men militia project rolling.

It's time for Marvel to give it a rest. The point has been made. We get it. Charles used to be a jerk, but he regrets his past actions, and no longer lords his superiority over people. It's done. It's over. We don't need a miniseries that combines the dark secrets about Chuck's past with the dark secrets of Logan's past.
