Recently, I saw the movie Logan, the final Wolverine installment in the X-men universe. Warning there’s a tiny bit of spoilers ahead, but not much. You can save this message until after you’ve seen it, or really this won’t stop your enjoyment of this great movie. (And yes, I think it is a great movie. Not just a great superhero movie. Great period.)
Patrick Stewart reprises his role as Charles Xavier, aka Professor X. But he’s not the same as he used to be. In fact, like Wolverine, he’s pretty bad off. One of the interesting quotes in the movies comes from one of the bad guys who states he has, “A degenerative brain disease in the world’s most dangerous brain.” What that looks like plays a role throughout the plot.
