Professor Charles Xavier Is Officially A Knight In A Shining Cerebro

Professor Charles Xavier isn’t exactly what I’d call the warrior type, but he is nonetheless a knight now that Patrick Stewart, he of the “X-Men” movies and “Star Trek” fame, has been knighted in England by Queen Elizabeth II.

Stewart was knighted alongside “Lord of the Rings” filmmaker Peter Jackson, which makes me chuckle as I think of the scene at the end of “Return of the King” where Aragorn and everyone else bows down before the four hobbits. I’d like to think that happened before Stewart and Jackson.

Honestly, if Andrew Lloyd Webber can get knighted after making “Starlight Express,” the Queen’s standards must be pretty darn low. Still, it’s great that we can now look towards Patrick Stewart as a knight, a title he can add to his ever increasing list that already includes “professor,” “leader of mutantkind,” and “Captain of the USS Enterprise.”

Even better is the fact that Ian McKellen is already a knight, which means that Magneto and Xavier are both knights, which means their rivalry has officially gotten medieval.

And even better still is that we can now sing that opening song from “Aladdin” as “Xavier Knights” instead of “Arabian Nights.” Hotter than hot in a lot of good ways, indeed.
