That and built in death rays kick ass.
His power is pretty cool. I admit that as a kid i used to think he was a dork but now i've come to appreciate him a more. As the leader of some of the most powerful, well trained and dangerous mutants he can't afford to do Wolverine like things and say "screw you guys, i'm gonna do what i want". He has to be responsible and levelheaded.
