My girlfriend says there is a scene where it shows charles xavier with hair..and i have searched for this picture or scene but not found it...

can anyone prove she's right??
 
well we do get a scene with him 30 years younger......... he might actually have hair at that time, i dunno, unless he has always been bald
 
From what I remember of the cartoon series, when they flashbacked to Xavier's childhood with Cain, he was bald.
However my comic book knowledge is minimal, so I couldn't say other than that.

Do you know what your girlfriend is basing this on i.e. does she have contacts / work for a magazine? I don't think any pictures of Xavier with hair have been released and the only time it would make sense is the opening scene when he is younger (although I can't recall him ever having hair in the comics either).
 
Yeah, he was completely bald when he was in his 20's as I remember it...

Supposedly, his baldness was connected to the growing manifestation of his powers...

Never seen him with hair in the comics, they said he lost his hair due to his powerful telepathy. But I could definately see them giving him hair in the movies to make him look younger... McKellan mentioned in that interview about how they were using new technology to make him and stewart look younger without prosthetics (s/p?).
 
Yeah he wears a disco uniform, its back in the seventies and he wins a dance contest. The scene ends with him telling his ladies friends the two things he loves in life are "my hair and my dancing".

I watched that episode on YouTube a few days ago!...lol.
 
Yes she is right there will be a scene like that

"The opening scene of the movie takes place in 1985 with Xavier and Magneto as Dr. Lensherr and Charles Xavier and they're going to meet Jean Grey. So they have to be 20 years younger. So we just filmed them normally and we have a company that has sort of come up with this technique, and we've already seen the first scene, we actually took them back 5 years, 10 years, to 30 years. It's really creepy. And all the references as far as Xavier's is Star Trek: The Next Generation. So we studied a lot of what he looked like 20 years ago. And Ian McKellen gave us some photographs of him as an actor 20 years ago. And what we've gotten back is absolutely spectacular. It hasn't been seen in a film previous to this." Bruno mentioned that the actors had seen the footage and that another actress played Jean Grey at age 9 in the scene.

This is what McKellen and Stewart looked like in the 80's...

Oh my god, McKellen is going to look so weird in that scene :eek:
 
i wonder..will Xavier be walking in the flashbacks?
 
As I remember from some Marvel Handbook, Xavier hair was blonde, as a kid...

I thought I recalled a flashback of Xavier when he was younger from the animated series as well where he had blonde hair. I may have to do some investigation.....

He did have blonde hair in that episode, where Kain is mad and Xavier is playing polo on a horse with his stepfather. He was bald AND walking in an episode with Bishop, they time traveled to stop him or something.
 
but Xavier was only like 14 or something in that episode and his powers were still growing...

If Xavier and Mags will only be in their 40's or so, I'd expect for Xavier to still be quite bald and probably a little gray...

yah there is such a scene, it's in the flashback in jean's house 20 years before the present day
 
I think the first scene is Professor X and Magneto going to see Jean to speak to her.
 
Yes there is a brief scene back with him having hair. Its set in the '70s.

This is the only image we have so far
