A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

X is for Professor Xavier

Professor Xavier is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

To me, Professor X is a pillar of the mutant community – a calmness that belies such unending power. He’s seen things, done things – and his experience and life choices have made him a leader among mutants.

He’s not my all-time favorite of the X-Men, but he’s there – always striving to do what he believes is right. Like most people, even Professor Charles Xavier can make bad decisions for the right reasons.

Professor X is among the strongest and most powerful telepaths in the Marvel universe. His telepathic abilities include mind reading, memory manipulation, mind control, astral projection, and offensive psychic attacks.

Xavier appears in the X-Men animated series. He appears as a regular cast member in the animated series X-Men: Evolution. Professor X appears in Wolverine and the X-Men.

 

X is for X-23

X-23 is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

She is a female clone of Wolverine – gaining all his abilities, such as a healing factor and superhuman strength, senses, speed, agility, and reflexes.

She also has retractable adamantium-laced bone claws in her hands and feet. Recently, X-23 (Laura Kinney) succeeded her “father” in adopting the mantle of Wolverine.

X-23 was created to be a perfect killing machine – working as a capable assassin for years.

Personally, I’ve only ever seen X-23 on her brief appearances in animation. I haven’t really got a feel for her personality, but she is more than just a clone of Wolverine – she’s her own person.

She was created for a specific purpose, but she makes her own fate.

X-23 appears in the cartoon series X-Men: Evolution and the animated series Wolverine and the X-Men.

I’m most familiar with Xavior. Before the film, I had no idea there was a female clone of Wolverine.

X-23 isn’t as popular, but she is definitely getting there.

So that’s who X-23 is! I’m learning so much through your blog 🙂

I’m happy to spread the knowledge and the research that I’ve acquired over the years! 🙂 And I’m glad that you’re enjoying my posts for the challenge.
