      Charles Xavier loses the use of his legs only to regain function of them so he can walk toward the escaped mutants on Three Mile Island at the end of X-Men Origins.

        @OpenSorce: The bullet was the thing that made Xavier crippled in X-Men: First Class. @Justin555666: You are absolutely correct about this learning, but I wan't to let you know, that this movie isn't tied to the others.

        Magneto removed the bullet. =x without blood too! Cuz X is too good to bleed.

        I don't know, I personally don't consider Origins: Wolverine canon in my book.

        I thought that this was a reboot, not just a straight out prequel
      • 4th July 2011 by OpenSorce
        We don't know that the paralysis from the bullet is permanent. He could have lost his ability to walk later due to complications (like having the bullet removed years later). Also, Xavier often projected his image in the minds of others. He was usually walking upright in these projections.

      Always take the angry magnet-controlling mutant whose mother you just killed into the room filled with knives.

        Don't ever tell Erik Lehnsherr that you're a pig farmer or tailor.

          Don't shoot at someone who can create magnetic fields and manipulate metal. You might just help cause a bystander's paralysis.

            It is now easier to play six degrees of Kevin Bacon if you can connect your actor with anyone who was in the X-Men franchise.

              Charles Xavier forgot he already knew Magneto. In the first X-men movie he says, "When I was 17 I met a young man named Erik." I guess telepathy causes memory loss.

                  If your mutation is the ability to adapt to survive, that doesn't necessarily mean you will.

                    If you can't stop your friend from killing someone, don't bother to release the guy of your power so he can at least defend himself. Nope, just hold him there so the Nazi coin goes right through his head.

                      I found that part very weird, I don't recall Xavier ever experiencing pain by mind control in the comics, I think this scene was ripped from: The Green Mile.
                    • 9th October 2011 by agentdc7
                      And experience the pain of having a coin go through your brain.

                      If a mutant kills your mother right in front of you, don't immediately kill the the man that did it. Just take your anger out on every metallic object in the room!

                          You can gun down a boy's mother in cold blood right before his eyes, and expect him to be totally cool with it.

                            Well the point was to make him so angry, that his powers would appear, but Shaw was an idiot to think he would aid him after.

                                          Wolverine would very much appreciate that if anyone is to cause an interruption between him and his alcoholic beverage, they are to perform sexual intercourse upon themselves.

                                                  Is that the same Moira McTaggert who was nursing Charles Xavier's twin brother who was in coma so he could get back to life after the events of Logan's trip to Japan? She should sell that anti-aging nightcreme she is obviously using since the 60's.

                                                      Sometimes it's just better to accept that your feet look a little different than others.

                                                          Jennifer Lawrence looks GREAT in short skirts. And thigh-high boots. And her blue, scaly form. And as Rebecca Romijn.

                                                            That wasn't Rebecca in Erik's bedroom when Erik said, "maybe in a few years"? I know Rebecca Romijn when I see her. Look closely before trying to correct someone.
