Reasons Why Wolverine Is A Better Professor X Than Professor X: UPDATE

Bonus point for the last post! Here goes:

BONUS: Although both are dead now, Wolverine matters less. The point of that article wasn’t necessarily that Wolverine was born to be a teacher. He was born to be… Wolverine. Just like Batman was born to make criminals tremble and Michael Bay was born for… actually, I have no idea why God gave us Michael Bay. There’s probably some justification. Back on track: the point was that almost ANYONE in the original X-men would be a better Professor X, for the same reasons. Personally, I’d want Nightcrawler because he’s seen a lot of human nature (good quality in a teacher), he’s got a sense of humor (unlike some clawed teachers I could mention) and, if I was kidnapped by the Hellfire Club or whatever, I’d prefer the unkillable badass to the wheelchair guy, but the teleported would be even better. Anyway, unlike Professor X, who generally died leaving everyone rudderless, Wolverine wasn’t dumb enough to make himself irreplaceable. Storm or Nightcrawler or Gambit or Angel or someone could just take over and business as usual, more or less. (I wouldn’t want to be hypothetically taught by Warbird, for obvious reasons, and telepaths are still a bad idea, so no Rachel Grey, but you get the point.) The Professor taught all the classes. Picture dealing with a school with only one faculty member, who then quits. Now add a bunch of super powered sociopaths trying to kill you. Nice going, Chuck!

Right, that’s definitely all for now. Arrivederci!
