So here we have Charles Xavier, one of the most powerful mutant telepaths on the planet. He’s probably sensing with his telepathy that another mutant somewhere is in trouble. Unfortunately, with 7 billion minds on the planet, locating a single individual can be a challenge.
Fortunately Professor X has Cerebro, a big metal helmet that hooks him into this enormous, telepathy-enhancing, super-computer located in a cavernous room hidden below the Professor’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
You’d think that a smart guy in a wheelchair would want more guardrails installed in a place like this. I guess they must interfere with his reception or something.
Once Cerebro is fired up, Professor X can reach out to virtually any mind on the planet.
Here’s one last photo that just shows what the underside of the Cerebro platform looked like.
I spent the afternoon with my son, sitting with him on the floor of his room, watching superhero movies and playing together with Legos. While he worked on a new Batcave, I tried to come up with a cool uses for the “electricity shooter” part from William’s Hero Factory Surge (6217) figure. What I ended up with was Professor Charles Xavier and his telepathy-enhancing, mutant-finding, super computer Cerebro. The build was okay… not the best MOC I’ve put together, but a fun way to kill an afternoon. It was when we used a little blue LED keychain flashlight to light up the MOC that I decided to post pictures. The photos were all taken with an iPhone and the only lighting effect was the aforementioned LED keychain flashlight (which incidentally is shaped like a little yellow duck and makes a “quack-quack-quack” noise when you use it). There was no Photoshop involved whatsoever... just a neat little lighting effect.
