Writer Stan Lee created wonderful characters in his X-men comics. What I love about them is how Professor Xavier (cool name) made his Westchester mansion a safe haven for young mutants to learn to use their powers for good. These are wonderful, exciting, and very different characters who have a positive influence on readers. That's something to celebrate.
I must admit I didn't read these comics. And I was slow to warm up to the movies, but when Hugh Jackman starred as Wolverine, I became interested. And I've always liked Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Xavier, since his days as captain on Star Trek the Next Generation
The X-Men Prequel movie was released last year with James McAvoy starring as Professor Xavier. He was fabulous. The movie did a great job of filling in the back story that I didn't know before.
I read a lot of comic books when I was young. But that was long ago. Now my son has to educate me on what's happening. There's some great stories in those wonderfully illustrated pages.
