Professor Charles Francis Xavier (also known as Professor X) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is the founder and leader of the X Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The X Men #1 (September 1963).
Xavier is a member of a subspecies of humans known as mutants who are born with superhuman abilities. The founder of the X Men, he himself is an exceptionally powerful telepath who can read and control minds of others. While running a private school in upstate New York in order to both shelter and train mutants from around the globe, Xavier also fights to serve the greater good by promoting peaceful coexistence and equality between humans and mutants in a world where often zealous anti-mutant bigotry is widespread.
Throughout much of the character's history in comics, Xavier is a paraplegic variously confined to either a wheelchair or a form of personal hovercraft. One of the world's most powerful telepathic mutant minds, Xavier is also something of a scientific genius, having earned Ph.Ds in genetics, biophysics, psychology, and anthropology, as well as an M.D. in psychiatry. He's put his combined talents to use by serving as a leading authority on genetics, mutations, and psionic powers. Furthermore, he has shown noteworthy talents in devising equipment to greatly enhance psionic powers. Xavier is perhaps best known in this regard for the creation of a device called Cerebro, a technology that serves to detect and track those individuals possessing the mutant gene, at the same time greatly expanding the gifts of those with existing psionic abilities.
Although quite at odds with his consistent use of the X Men to fight threats of evil by engaging in purely physical battle, from a social policy and philosophical perspective Xavier has been shown to deeply resent the violent methods of those like his former close friend and occasional arch enemy, the supervillain Magneto. Instead, he's presented his platform as espousing uncompromising pacifism in order to see his dream to fruition - one that seeks to live harmoniously alongside humanity, just the same as it desires full-fledged civil rights and equality for all of mutantkind. Xavier's actions and goals in life have therefore quite often been compared to those of Martin Luther King, Jr. for his involvement with the American civil rights struggle,[1] whereas Magneto is often compared with the more militant civil rights activist Malcolm X.[1]
Indeed, the character's creation and development occurred simultaneously with the civil rights struggle, taking place as it did in the 1960s, while Xavier's first appearance dates to 1963. The fictionalized plight on paper of a mutantkind faced with exceptional intolerance, prejudice and blind hatred was done in large part to better illustrate to audiences of the day what was transpiring across the United States, just the same as it also served to further promote ideals of tolerance and equality for all.
Patrick Stewart portrayed the character in five films of the X Men film series and in various video games, while James McAvoy portrayed a younger version of the character in the 2011 prequel X Men: First Class, with both actors reprising the role in the film X Men: Days of Future Past. James McAvoy also portrays the character in X Men: Apocalypse.
