Tragically, Charles was mortally wounded in an encounter with a black dragon as a young adult. Before the dragon could kill Xavier and his soldiers, Xavier forced his mind onto the Dragon's. Not only did this stop the dragon but Xavier was able to tame it. This was the first time in history that a man was able to gain obedience over a dragon.
(Personal notes) You can see I obviously liked Patrick Stewart’s portrayal of Professor X. He's played kings in other roles and what better fit for this reinterpretation. Why fix what isn't broken? You might have guessed but the black dragon is the re-imagination of the Blackbird jet. I also had fun playing with the combination of a throne and a wheelchair; it became a character in itself. The words engraved into the back are Mutatis Mutandis.

I read in Wizard magazine in the mid 90's (around the time The Next Generation ended its run) when they were casting the X-Men movie that Patrick Stewart would be perfect for Xavier, seems everyone agrees with that assessment.
Thank you! Yeah, his portrayal is spot on.
