About Him

Grew Up… in his family’s mansion. A naturally gifted scholar, Charles Francis Xavier has Ph.Ds in genetics, biophysics, psychology, and anthropology. He also obtained an M.D. in psychiatry. As a child, Charles developed telepathic powers, enabling him to read people’s minds.

Living… in his family’s mansion, which he has converted to a mutant school, The Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. He teaches young mutants to hone their powers. Xavier believes in humankind’s capacity for kindness and compassion, believing that mutants can eventually coexist peacefully with them. Unfortunately, there is currently a political war raging over mutant rights. Professor Xavier battles bigoted humans and other mutants that believe a mutant-human war is inevitable – most notably Magneto, who will stop at nothing to dominate the world.

Profession… leader of the X-Men, a team of handpicked mutants who fight for both mutant rights. 

Interests… science, academics, mutant rights. Professor X tries to instill a strong moral compass to his mutant students. As he states, “When an individual acquires great power, the use or misuse of that power is everything.”

Relationship Status… single. He spends most of his time looking after students and fighting the battle for mutant rights.

Challenge… stop renegade mutants who seek human extinction. If he can stop Magneto, he might be able to convince humans that mutants and humans can coexist in harmony. Through a series of unfortunate events, Magneto came to embody the vengeance and evil that Professor Xavier has dedicated to eradicate from mutant kind.  

Personality… intelligent, compassionate, introspective and contemplative, if only because he can hear so many people’s thoughts at once. He has devoted his life to the betterment of mutants everywhere, and for that he is one of the most beloved mutant leaders.
