Are you sure we aren't related? I was thinking the same thing about him.

I agree that the movie, Logan, was a downer. However, it was good to see less of the "super human" and more humanity from Logan.

I think one of us may be from a lost branch of the other's family!  It would explain a good deal.

I also enjoyed the earthier, less noble Prof. X.  Woo, all that cussing he did!  Seriously startled by Prof X saying "fuck".  So many times.
If we are ever on the same side of the country, we are going to have to meet.

In earlier movies, the Professor was just a bit too good to be true. Even in "Days of Future Past" when he traded his abilities for being able to walk again, he was only so miserable because he couldn't figure out have to be the hero without his powers.
Life is but a momentary glimpse of the wonder of the astonishing universe, and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasy.~Carl Sagan

Yeah.  I got the impression Patrick Stewart really enjoyed tearing it up in Logan.

Give Deadpool a shot, it's . . . different.  I found the opening credits alone worth the price of the movie.

Yes, Deadpool is a different kind of superhero movie. :smilenod:
