Professor XCharles Francis Xavier, also known as Professor X, is a comic book character in the Marvel Comics universe. He is the founder, mentor and sometime leader of the team of mutant superheroes the X-Men. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in X-Men #1 (1963).
Xavier is considered one of the most powerful mutants on Earth due to his psionic powers. Xavier can read, control and influence human minds and cast illusions. He can also detect the presence of other mutants. A natural genius, he is also a leading authority on genetics, mutation, and psionic powers, has considerable expertise in other life sciences and is highly talented in creating equipment for utilizing and enhancing psionic powers.
A visionary, Xavier has devoted his life to helping mutants learn to live with their powers, and to helping mutants and normal humans coexist peacefully and without fear of one another.
Professor Xavier's character is inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr. and St. Francis Xavier, and may also be a derivative of Marie François Xavier Bichat, or Charles Xavier from Vladimir Nabokov's 1962 book Pale Fire.
Professor X Movies
X-MenX-Men is a United States action movie, first released in Australia on 13 July 2000. The film features a group of comic book superheroes called the X-Men. It formed a major part of the current revival in comic-book adaptation movies.
The movie was directed by Bryan Singer and explores the ideas of prejudice and discrimination in the United States. The screenplay was co-written by David Hayter (who has a cameo appearance in the film as a police officer), and Joss Whedon also made uncredited contributions.
X2X2 (promoted in some markets as X2: X-Men United, X-Men 2: X-Men United, or X-Men 2) is an American movie, first released in the United Kingdom on April 24, 2003, and in the United States on May 2. The film is a sequel to X-Men. It was directed by Bryan Singer, and starred an ensemble cast including Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, and Alan Cumming.
The film is loosely based on the 1982 X-Men graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills. In the film, William Stryker is a high-ranking army colonel who leads an assault into Professor Xavier's school to build his own version of Xavier's mutant-tracking computer Cerebro in order to destroy every mutant on Earth. The X-Men are forced to ally with Magneto and Mystique to defeat Stryker. X2 introduced Nightcrawler to film-goers, and was an even greater success than the original film, earning approx. $215 million in North America alone, making it one of the top ten movies of 2003. It was also proclaimed by many fans and critics a superior film than its predecessor.

It was officially confirmed by a 20th Century Fox publicist that the film will be called X-Men: The Last Stand, though they did the same to its predecessor insisting it be called X2: X-Men United while its director Bryan Singer insisted it was simply X2.
