How does fifteen year old Max do in the world? What are his biggest issues?
Hormones are a-raging for most fifteen year olds, even telepathic geniuses like young Max Francis Xavier. He is deep in the throes of first love with the brilliant but shy Jean Grey, and is trying to work out all the important stuff - does he tell her (she already knows Max, she’s a telepath too remember?); does he do anything about it (Ororo and his Aunt Raven say yes, Daddy says be patient and Papa is staying out of it); and how to handle a possible rival for her affections (that would be a much taller and more grown-up Scott Summers).
He is also trying to make up his own mind and find a happy balance between his parents’ still somewhat opposing ideaologies (though you’d think they could give those old arguments a rest after living and working together for eight years).
Ask me a question about one of my fics or series. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will tell you the honest-to-goodness answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series).
