Those feelings are what mark Bishop as a great X-Man. They are his true power. His commitment to his teammates...to what the X-Men represent -- his spirit embodies what my dream is all about. He has chosen his heart over his past. He is, heart and soul, one us us. And few have paid a greater price.
My name is Charles Xavier. I am a mutant. And once upon a time I had a dream... of a world where all Earth's children, both mutant and baseline human, might live together in peace. This isn't it. This is today's reality.
A new generation of mutants is emerging, that much is certain. They will be called freaks. Genetic monstrosities. [...] But they are emerging in the inner cities, in the suburbs, in the deserts and the jungles. And when they emerge, they will need teachers, people who can help them overcome their anger and show them how to use their strange gifts responsibly. They will need us.
I've been doing this a lot longer than you have, Scott. And, with all due respect, I've been dealing with Magneto since before you were born. I will not let him waltz in here and shatter what is left of mutantkind.
You're a Headmaster now, Professor Logan. Best accept the fact that you will never again seem even remotely "cool" to any of your students. And you haven't even started losing your hair yet. Which you will, by the way.
This contact was a disaster! He way completely distruct me and my X-Men now. He's more dangerous than ever, to himself and everyone else around him. For his own sake - for the sake of the world - we must find him again!
Exodus missed, that's all... His strategy was to show me my own folly, my own weakness. He made me relive every mistake that Charles Xavier had ever made. Every scrap of guilt that could be laid at his door. But the man who made those mistakes is dead. His failings and his failures died with him. I have the chance -- the possibility -- to be someone better.
I've lost some of my memories. Because of an accident. I thought--one way to retrieve them might be to access the memories of people I've been close to. People who were with me at different stages of my life.
Jean told me once -- that death and birth can sometimes be the same thing. That when your life stops, new possibilities open up. ... I'm glad I got to see you again, Scott -- and that I leave the X-Men in such good hands. Goodbye.
I was wrong. Not about me. About you. You've done what I could never do: You've united mutantkind and provided us a safe haven and a common purpose. You made it happen. Except it's suddenly not so safe. We've only just come into being, yet it may all be gone by this time tomorrow. Unless you make your first big decision as our leader a good one.
I see you haven't read the novel, Bobby -- which I assigned last spring! In it, Victor Frankenstein pursued his grotesque creation into the Arctic regions! And there -- near the top of the world -- he died!
We have awesome powers, my X-Men. It is our birthright... And, perhaps, our burden. But, as Valerie Said, with that power comes responsibility -- and also accountability. I owe it to the Fantastic Four...the Avengers... To everyone who was injured by Onslaught to go now. It is the right thing to do. It is the best thing to do.
I've had years to reflect, to consider how differenthe is from the rest of his kind. Somehow he found a way to overcome his nature and live on his own terms. He's not like Dracula, Jubilee, not like Xarus. And you don't have to be either.
With Hannah Connover lies the possibility of understanding the Brood better. Perhaps of even changing them. She is literally an embodiment of hope. In that, she represents part of my dream -- part of the very reason I formed you, my X-Men.
Now? After all this time, you finally choose this institute? I am sorry, but I cannot provide it for you. I tried and failed that approach when I accepted Sabretooth into my care. I no longer have the compassion to forgive your actions -- or the energy to teach you to have it for others.
Can't you see? After all these years, still do you not understand? When all is said and done, your dream, Magneto, cannot endure, because it will forever be tainted by the blood of those you've sacrificed along the way! And poisoned as well by the rage that drives you to take those lives. Under the pretense that it was somehow necessary.
