Joe’s Random Movie Trivia: “X-Men: The Last Stand”

Charles Xavier’s resurrection
How did Professor X survive?
Please note, the following is canon for the movie universe, not necessarily the comics.

In the third X-Men film, Charles Xavier is killed (disintegrated) by the Phoenix. Later in “The Wolverine”, and later in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” Xavier has returned from the dead reminding Logan, “You’re not the only one with gifts”. How did he come back?

The answer is in the post-credit scene at the end of the third film. Charles had used his telepathy to transfer his consciousness into the body of a brain dead patient on Muir Island (shown earlier in the film). The patient is actually Charles Xavier’s identical twin brother known only as “P. Xavier”. This is why after transferring his mind, Charles still looks like himself. Even though it is not directly said, it can be assumed that P. Xavier’s brain dead state was a result of Charles’ telepathy in utero.

P. Xavier is played by an uncredited Patrick Stewart (in a wig and beard).
