- Dear fellow list members,
This weekend's blockbuster movie, X2: X-Men United, featured an undeveloped
reference to the Arthurian legend. In the opening scenes of the film,
Magneto was should reading a copy of The Once and Future King, and, in the
closing scenes, Professor Xavier discussed the book with his mutant
students. The X-Men comics have a long history of linking the X-Men to the
Arthurian legend. More details forth-coming to interested parties.

Nikos Kazantzakis: "Well, your father is living in the Dark Ages!"
Young Indy: "Almost--My father is a medievalist."
- Yes, I saw this as well. And it does have a couple of possible
interpretations. One thing that occured to me is that Magneto's reason
for reading the book is quite different than Xavier's reason, and
without spoiling the movie I can't say more.
