Of course that would make Max Dr. Xavier, which he might not
David, you must not know Max all that well, because he is a huge comic
book fan, and so I bet he would love to be Professor Xavier! ; )
Well, he might actually prefer being Magneto...

If I had the website design skills, I would do a parody porn (at a
PG-13 level) site called Sextropians.com! It would have a "Ask
Anders" column where our favorite Swedish academic would answer
people's difficult sex questions. ; ) And it would also have playful
spoofs of 70's porn starring our Spike as a studly motorcycle outlaw
who sports a big mustache as he romances swimsuit models, flight
attendants, waitresses, librarians, astronauts, entomologists
(specializing in bees), and motorcycle engineers!
If they think having the word "immortality" in their current title is
a bad idea in terms of social acceptance, I suggest "Get Sick and Die
Soon" as a new name.
What about "Get Enhanced and Live Much Longer" as the new name? Or
they might even go with the "Elixir of Life Institute!" lol
