Um...okay, so, comic books ''can'' be a little goofy at times.

Logan wakes up in the infirmary of a [[ExtranormalInstitute school]]. Unlike most schools, this one teaches {{Mutants}}--people like Logan who have unusual powers. The school also has its own team of superheroes: the X-Men. The bald, wheelchair-bound psychic Professor Xavier runs both the school and the X-Men, and he offers for both Logan and Marie to stay with them.

* TheGadfly: Professor X telepathically guides an anxious Logan--the latter has no idea where he is or why he's there, or why he's hearing a strange male voice inside his head, and because Dr. Jean Grey wanted to take a blood sample, Wolverine assumes that he's being experimented on--through the mansion to Xavier's office, where Charles greets his guest with a polite "Good morning, Logan." Professor X is aware of the traumas that Wolverine had experienced, and it's a bit disconcerting that the former took advantage of the latter's paranoia for a little bit of fun, even if it was only for a short time.



* {{Troll}}: Professor X's introduction has him telepathically guiding an anxious Logan through the mansion to his office, where he greets him with a simple "Good morning, Logan."
