And one of the things I liked about Charles in First Class was that he was that he partied, and that his opening narration in the original films were just pickup lines. Obviously, his heart and mind were set in the right place, and he was still obviously Charles Xavier, but he was still a very typical young guy, and there was still some maturity that he needed to attain.

Would you like to take it out and ask it?
’Should we honor our treaty, King Louis’ head?’
‘Uh, do whatever you want, I’m super-dead!’"
