I mean he can take control of a living brain/person. Can he totally morph into a dead brain? Can he read the memory of a dead person?

Can he control someone who was just killed? Or anyone killed recently? Or even years ago?

    @Jared I'm not asking if he's alive or not. I'm purely asking that can he control a just killed Sebastian Shaw, a just killed person or simply anyone killed recently or years ago – Honey Mar 15 '17 at 3:25
  • The recent Logan movie would seem to indicate that he can do so, at least briefly, since there’s a scene where Logan kills someone who is immobilized by Xavier, and they stay immobilized until Xavier’s control stops (and then fall over), indicating that he was holding them up while they were dead. – Adamant Mar 15 '17 at 3:37

    @Honey - Haha, nope! There's just a lot of crazy things one can do with a dead body. The mind goes to all sorts or wild places when the question is phrased that way. :P – TheIronCheek Mar 15 '17 at 20:05

Presumably not. The movie Logan provides some evidence that his control over a person stops at their death-- several people paralyzed by Xavier drop instantly after Logan kills them. (I've only seen the movie once, so I may be misremembering, but I can recall only one person staying upright after Logan had gotten to him. Perhaps the claws had missed just enough that the goon didn't actually die until moments later.)

  • or maybe it becomes unnecessary...though I guess from the movie, he didn't have much of a control of what he was doing...as in it just him automatically doing something—without any intention – Honey Mar 15 '17 at 16:17

I wouldn't say he could do that Professor X powers require a active mind to be able to access it. Its kinda like trying to access the files on a computer and it not even getting power or plugged in. being sleep or unconscious you'd still have active brain waves but dead I don't think you would at least not for long after death. In X3 he was able to go into a empty shell of a body because it was alive and a complete blank "slate."
