"In a few scenes that seem like they’re writing prompts for a class on slash fanfic, Professor X tells Jubilee about how he met his handsome young friend at a hospital 'after a war'... I really do like that Xavier keeps things vague about this war, though. It allows for that experience to form the basis of their friendship without having to pin the characters to a particular date. Even though Magneto works best as a Holocaust survivor, tying him to a particular date limits what you can do with him. If it’s just 'a war,' it can be anything, and we have no shortage of wars and atrocities that can keep Magneto as young as a story requires.

That got awfully depressing. Let’s just move on."
