Morning Roundup: Professor X is Taking the 70’s Real Hard

A recently released set picture from X-Men: Days of Future Past clearly shows a young Professor X in full-on 70’s mode as he waits for the Concert for Bangladesh benefit show to start. Is this Xavier’s “lost weekend” look? Is McAvoy Xavier hooked on the disco drug scene? Is that why time travel is going to be needed? To stop the endless bingeing? Is Xavier making other people disco-dance with his mind? (Picture via superherohype.)
