Yes, Professor X, you used those tactics in the *very* recent past.

Not on Kitty's parents...that was Jean, just prior to turning into Dark Phoenix. In general, at least as this point, Xavier rarely tried to manipulate peoples minds outside of directly hostile attacks and I can't recall many situations where he actively changed their minds via mind-control (although wiping out traumatic memories was something he didn't think was a problem).

I'm sensing a pattern here...

I love the way they portrayed Ororo with Emma's mind. She's just so *obviously* decadent and self-indulgent. I can just imagine Emma and Sebastian doing sex role-play with Ororo's body: "Oh no, you've overpowered my Storm powers with your manly might! I cannot help but be unwillingly attracted--even though I know it is wrong!"

Why isn't anyone helping the 13-year-old girl with her huge suitcase that she's literally dragging on the ground?

That always bothered me when I first read this story. At least give her a Dolly Lift to carry it on!

Did any of the X-men consider the possibility that Emma used her powers to "change" Kitty's parents' minds? They know she's a telepath, they know she's amoral, and they know it's her school. And they themselves thought of doing the same thing.

Emma's recruitment methods are a little weird.

If she was going to use her powers on the Pryde's to get Kitty to join she'd have done it at the start of the Dark Phoenix Saga, though admittedly she probably felt she didn't really NEED to. Jean didn't mind whammy the Pryde's into letting her go to Xavier's until a point Emma was in no position to intervene.

Emma offered Doug Ramsey a full scholarship, and we never did find out why he didn't attend, as Kitty never told him about Emma's real agenda and it would have been quite the coup to go there.

Because Doug knows what's what.

I have noticed that Ororo tends to have cat's eyes a lot of the time in the early runs.

She was always intended to have cat-slit eyes, it's later artists who dropped it.

Little back story if you're interested;

Storm's appearance is based on a character Cockrum designed for the All new X-Men called "The Black Cat", who was a black woman who would be able to assume the form of any feline (from housecat to panther) as well as having a humanoid cat form.

But since there had been a couple of cat-women introduced aruond that time, like Tigra, she was dropped, but Cockrum and Wein needed a female member of the team, so they kept her basic cat-eyed look (though they made her hair white), and gave her the powers that Cockrum had intended for a member of "The Outsiders (a proposed Legion of Superheroes spinoff) called Typhoon, and voila "Storm" was born.
