Professor Xavier is an Asshole

Because honestly, as filler posts go, it's really fucking easy to find these examples.

This one is from Uncanny X-Men #129. After Xavier got back from bumping uglies with Lilandra and her hideous hair. (Click for larger.)



Clearly no one taught Professor X how to take constructive criticism.

Also, they really have to stop letting Scott pick out his own clothing. Honestly.

    Well everything he sees should be in varying tons of red, so no wonder.

    Yeah, but no one else is color blind, so clearly they should step in!

    On top of that, he probably patterns his dress sense on the Professor's (another thing Xavier is responsible for!). The only time his clothes match is, probably, when Jean picks them out for them.

    On the other hand, considering the costume Jean created for Angel, maybe its a team-wide disability.

    That's a good point. And Xavier's pants are also pretty horrific in that scan. Even if not as eye-catching as Scott's ensemble.

    Oh Charles...like this decision isn't going to come back and bite you in the butt.

    To be honest, Xavier's orange shirt and checked trousers are worse than Scott's.

    Lilandra doesn't have hideous hair. She has hideous feathers. :-)

    Hair, feathers. Same difference. :-)

    Come on, it was the Seventies. People were clothes like this at this time.

    Xavier may be an asshole but he's almost as much a player as Tony Stark. Alien royalty, Moria McTaggert, Legion's mom, that red-haired mutant from the Acolytes...

    The Seventies excuses a lot in terms of fashion. I have some pre-adolescent and early adolescent pictures I'm not proud of.

    Are we sure those are Xavier's trousers as opposed to some sort of blanket?

    By Angel's costume, do you mean she designed the classic sleek red and white one or that "red and yellow with headband" monstrosity he wore at the start of CHAMPIONS?

    notintheface: Jean designed a red, yellow and blue number even WORSE than the toned-down version Warren wore in the beginning of CHAMPIONS.

    freivolk: Yes. I lived through the '70s. Scott's actually dressed relatively tastefully for the times. At least he's not in a blue polyester faux-denim leisure suit.

    SallyP: y'know. I think you've stumbled on why Charles is so often wheelchair-bound: it's from a lifetime of decisions biting him in the butt. YOU try to walk without a gluteus maximus!Verification word: Ficro, which should be the name of the Silver Age Atom's canine sidekick.
