Uh, hi! This is Ca- I mean Chuck Shurley, just- Chuck, sorry. [Indistinct fumbling noises] Leave a message after the beep and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks?

...At what point it is even responsible for you to still be this strong when you have the ability to cap it?

The last person to have their baseline power capped, rather than learn to control it, was Jean.

You have heard of Dark Phoenix, yes?

[In the rare honest moments? He's even afraid of the power Omega level Mutants have.]

So I learn what I can do - so that I don't accidentally do it.

[He's heard of it, yeah. Not in too much depth, but enough to know that Erik really has a point.]

That sounds awful. Having to constantly live on the alert.

Ororo and I used to discuss it, I'm old, muscle aches are to be expected. Ororo was not - and she was often just as tense as I was. It's. I'm older now, more powerful. And I have to be so very careful. The poles move naturally, did you know? The Earth wobbles a bit.

[He takes up a fork, morphing it into a small hollow black ball - the Earth's core - and a thin net bubbled over it made with the finest silver threads and the poles staked with needle-like spindles, a flexible red metal thread attached, showing how the Earth spins on it's axis, and the faint wobble - and why. The core spinning at a different speed than the mantle and crust.]

And the poles move as a result. I could speed it up or retard it. Neither are actually good for the planet. It's not just being on alert, it's being in control, all the time. Never being able to really let go. And I can't on the planet, or even inside the orbit of moon or I could knock that off too.

I wouldn't clip my DNA to change it - and I could, I know how to, in theory, although it might take a few tries to get it right - because I'm the one to teach others to accept themselves, and I can't do that if I'm reworking my own genetic code. And our DNA is...we're called Mutants for a reason - our DNA mutates. It probably wouldn't work and then I'm caught off guard.

No one can afford that.
