As the founder of the X-Men, Professor Charles Xavier is an important figure in the team. He's not only a brilliant strategist but also the most powerful psychic in the world who's capable of controlling and reading minds, moving objects and generally being awesome. Professor X has been a part

of every comic book, TV show, and movie starring the X-Men, and it's hard to imagine the group without him. With all that said, you'd think that any lover of the X-Men would want a Professor X action figure, but you'd be wrong.

That's because there's very little "action" in a Professor X action figure since he spends most of his time rolling or floating around in a wheelchair. No shooting lasers or karate chopping supervillains for this superhero. 1993's Uncanny X-Men Professor X action figure is a perfect example. It came with a figure in a floating chair that you can't even take him out of. You can hold his action figure and pretend he's reading minds or moving objects with telekinesis, but you don't really need an action figure for that. No 1990s kid was screaming, "Yes, I finally got my Professor X figure! Now I can sit him on the sidelines to watch while I make the real X-Men fight!"
