Never forget. (Panel from X-Men #193. Art by John Romita, Jr. and Dan Green.)In X-MEN #192, Professor X was the victim of a hate crime, attacked and left for dead by a group of anti-mutant college students. When he woke up in the care of the subway-dwelling Morlocks, he found that he’d been outfitted in studded leather straps, with spikes and piercings. According to Jim Shooter, writer Chris Claremont had initially wanted to dress him in “transvestite gear” for the story. “He had this thing for bondage and fetish,” said editor Annie Nocenti. “He wanted to run a story line where Xavier wanted to wear women’s clothes and I said, ‘No fucking way.’”
