A Supposedly Human Thing Xavier'll Never Do Again

So, Professor Charles Xavier, what do you want on your Tombstone? And by that, I don't mean pizza, I mean how do you want to die?

Yeah, well, we can't always get what we want. Because Charles Xavier pretty much went out like a chump.:

Ooooh, that's gotta hurt. Well, at least we can all say that even though he went out like a chump, it took five of Marvel's top writers to kill him. I'd like to think that would have been a comfort to him, but it probably wasn't, huh, Professor X? Let's try that first panel again, huh? This time with an additional image:

Ah well. There's always your third death to try again, Charley.
