That decision really does bug me the crap out of me. And I feel like it’s a writing flaw, rather than a Charles flaw, because you look at Charles and he’s clearly torn up over having to do this, it is not the kind of thing he would do unless he felt he had to. But it was really not made clear in the narrative why wiping Moira’s memory was so necessary. Did Charles really think the CIA was going to, what, waterboard their own operative into telling them? And for heaven’s sake, finding him can’t be that hard anyway. WELCOME TO THE XAVIER MANSION, HOME OF XAVIER’S SCHOOL FOR ‘GIFTED’ YOUNGSTERS, OWNED AND MANAGED BY CHARLES XAVIER, WHOM WE HAVE NEVER HEARD OF AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO FIND.

LOL +1

I actually see Charles decision about Moira to be the final point in a tragedy - not just because of what he did to her but because he never gave her the chance to choose otherwise, which she might very well have.  In a sense it was Erik’s greatest victory in the film… Post Cuba birthed a Charles unable to trust anyone anymore, even when he should. Instead there were only the family who’d left (like they all do apparently) the first-real-equal who was no doubt going to end up an enemy all too soon, and the mutant children and humanity in general he’s now shouldered the burden of protecting.
Yes its arrogant of him to assume he has the ability to do so, and the right to make those decisions alone, but then his  first two attempts at having equals he can lean on as well as bolster spectacularly backfired against him.  Given the way that his childhood went followed by XMFC, I’ll be halway astonished if he’s ever anyone but the ‘Professor’ to anyone again.

I would really love some meta!fic about Charles’ post-Cuba trust issues. :(
