In X-2, Jason is convincing Charles to concentrate on all Mutants, but why would Jason listen to Stryker in the first place? I doubt that Jason's spinal fluid would work.


Jason has a prominent lobotomy scar on the right side of his head. It would seem that his father, after Jason's antics resulted in the death of his mother, decided to tinker with Jason's brain to ensure compliance, evidently at the loss of his motor function.

Note that in the official novelisation we learn that Jason was/is a true psychopath. The fact that his actions would result in the deaths of millions of mutants would be of little concern to him on an emotional level.

As Xavier had sensed during that first interview, there was no empathy in Jason, no acknowledgment of the people around him as living, sentient beings worthy of even the slightest respect. To him, they were a different order of interactive toy. He took his pleasure from “mounting” them as the practitioners of voodoo believed their gods did when possessing their worshipers. He created scenarios that literally put his victims through Hell and gloried in the agonies that resulted.

  • How do you lobotomise a guy who can make you see any kind of hallucinations? – user65648 Sep 23 '20 at 13:22

    @C.Koca - in X-Men Origins: Wolverine we see that he was captured and frozen by his father. Presumably they were able to operate on him by either doing so while he was frozen (unlikely) or sedating him during the unfreezing process (likely). – Valorum Sep 23 '20 at 13:59
  • I mean, for Wade they inserted a chip to make him follow orders, but this looks more like some kind of brainwashing trigger, which is not explained, I understand. – Didi Kohen Oct 4 '20 at 16:40
