Professor Xavier is a character appearing in Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The X-Men #1. The founder and often leader of the X-Men, Xavier is an exceptionally powerful telepath who can read and control the minds of others. To shelter and train mutants, he runs a private school in the X-Mansion in New York. Xavier also promotes peaceful coexistence and equality between humans and mutants in a world where zealous anti-mutant bigotry is widespread. Xavier is paraplegic and uses a modified wheelchair and is a scientific genius. Patrick Stewart played Xavier in seven films in the X-Men film series while James McAvoy plays a younger version of the character starting in the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Both actors have since reprised their roles on multiple occasions.
A certain hippie is skeptical of Xavier's telepathic abilities and asks him to prove it. Xavier pretends to focus his power for a second before stating the hippie is a fan of the rock band AC/DC. The hippie is amazed, completely oblivious to his AC/DC shirt.
Wolverine storms into Xavier's office and demands to know why he in charge of the X-Men when he cannot even walk. Xavier reminds him of his telepathic power, but Wolverine refuses to accept that as an answer. To demonstrate, Xavier reaches into Wolverine's mind and mentions his love of "horse porn", disquieting Wolverine into accepting his leadership and begging the professor not to tell anyone. Xavier nods but teases Wolverine on his way out.
