Uh huh, I am featuring an X-Men character as a storyteller. And it is mostly fair, because Professor X DOES actually spend a lot of his time in the comic books, tv shows, and movies telling stories and parables.
He also happens to be one of my all time favorite characters, like ever. And why?
- Because he is brilliant, charming, and genuinely caring
- Because his strength of character is in knowing how to use force when necessary, and avoid it when not-- a really admirable trait
- Because he has been played by two of my favorite actors (and dreamy men)- Patrick Stewart in a really amazing film franchise, and James McAvoy in a movie that left me feeling like my childhood had been defiled (see my review of X-Men first class here)
