Hey now, they can’t all be all stars.

could be worse.....Star Trek : TNG famously only had six toilets (public ones at that) for the entire crew, and diana troi had the only bathtub which isn’t to say everyone else had showers just that hers was the only cabin with a bathroom not just an alcove and it didn’t have a toilet.
Lee responded, “never drew a bathroom in the mansion either but I am pretty sure they all heeded the call of nature.”
Oh, by the way...
Though it’s not the exact same thing, I’m reminded of this old Shortpacked! comic:
When someone finds me the bathrooms on the Millennium Falcon, I’ll start worrying about the accessibility ramps in Professor X’s mansion.
its easy. A lift comes out of the ground and moves him to where needs to go, and then goes back into the ground. It’s totally seamless so you don’t even notice it.
You need to think of the cheesey movies where the stairs turn into a slide. I am sure with the house set-ups that it wouldn’t be hard. The stairs just turn into a ramp then back as needed. Figure all of the armor and other high-tech crap that comes out of there.
Can’t he just continually telepathically control the nearest chunk of biceps that he’s carrying his bride over the threshold? (might have to duck a kiss or two)
Actually, Lee did draw a bathroom in the mansion. I recently dug out some old TPBs from that era, and either right before or right after X-tinction Agenda (so it would have been Lee on main art duties for Uncanny), there was a story about having too many mutants in the mansion (Cable and the new mutants, Uncanny team…
I hate to be that guy, but the image of the tread chair comes not from Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 (a comic that doesn’t exist; it was Giant-Size #1 and #2 and then Annual #3), but from (Uncanny) X-Men #9. [/pedantry]
Nightcrawler, Blink and/or Magik depending on who’s dead that particular week. They take shifts.
not being a huge comic dork, exactly how many Marvel comics characters have Marvel in their name? Captain Marvel, Marvel Girl, Blue Marvel, Marvel Apes, Marvel Boy, Mar-Vell, Marvel Zombies, Masked Marvel, Ms. Marvel.....
I haven’t read enough Xmen comics to fully comment, but didn’t the movie show an elevator entrance to the cerebro floor? Also, given that this was supposedly a family mansion passed down for generations and Charles wasn’t always in a wheelchair, wheel chair ramps were probably not in the original design. You’d more…
Mr. Sinister blew up the X-Mansion at the very beginning of Silvestri’s run and it didn’t get replaced until X-Men 1 which was 4 years later so maybe he wasn’t the right person to ask.
The 90s cartoon had a very elegant solution.
The Jim Lee era gold wheelchair was supposed to be on an orb???? I have always thought it was a hoverchair!
You never see stairs in the *front* of the X-Mansion
Yeah, I guess I always just kind of assumed that he was telekinetic enough to just lift himself up and down stairs or other barriers, or that his chair had some kind of hover capability. But you make a great point that it’s an oversight when you consider legal requirements that would have applied, and the nature of…
