One of my greatest talents is giving young people advice. Young people are stupid and vain and need to be reminded that they are failures at everything. The more clearly you can articulate their particular failures to them, the more likely they are to follow you around and treat you with respect. Raven followed me around for almost forty years because I once explained in one semi-coloned sentence all the ways she despised herself. My wit enraptured her.
Charles Xavier is not dumb, so he never fell for me calling him a smug cripple. He knew I was just trying to get him to follow me around. I suppose Charles had to lead people because when you’re in a wheelchair you want to be out in front so you don’t run over anyone in front of you when you go down hills.

—p. 552, Volume 4, The Autobiography of Magneto X, by Erik Lensherr

OMG, that last sentence!
