Legion : If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Then how did he end up with a separate family and not living with Xavier at his school? Was Xavier a bad father or something, I am not familiar with this character.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Charles was simply unaware that he had a son because his "jumpoff" never told him that she was pregnant. Well I shouldn't call her a jumpoff, they did have feelings for each other.

Was mom Moira mactaggert the mother?

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

The mother is Gabrielle Haller although I guess it's possible for this show to have a different canon.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

We don't know yet. Hopefully time will tell.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

I really hope they come up with a good explanation because either Xavier is oblivious to him which is idiotic with Cerebro and all, or else he's a dead-beat dad

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Or, as the director has said in interviews, it's nothing to do with the X-Men.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

If it has nothing to do with the X-Men then why does an X appear in the O of Legion in the end credits?

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Yeah and I could swear I saw in a trailer that they said something about him being Xavier's son. The show is totally an x-men show. They even played DOFP right before it aired again

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Well that's a lie.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

Xavier always had a cold side to him, its not unreasonable that he would willingly stay away from David.

Re: If David is supposed to be Xavier's son

There should be a limited issue comic about mutants that are dead beat dads being hunted by a special team of heroes. Which marvel characters are probably dead beat dads? I could see:

Wolverine [probably has kids that he never met that died in WW II]
Luke Cage (obviously)
Angel (rich pretty boy that can fly away)
Reed Richards {he can alter his face}
Professor X [doesn't he have a looooooooot of bastard kids?]
Falcon [right?]

Who else y'all think tapped that ass and never came back?
