Quote:And how is it that Mystique gave birth to this child recently?
Why would Mystique even want this and does it count as Professor X getting raped?
Well, we still don't know the whole story.
Her words in the flashback suggest that Xavier knew and she was pregnant for him, doing him a favour. She says, "Sorry, Charles, I just can't do it [raise the kid]" (paraphrased). We simply don't know how she managed to get pregnant. Could have been through scientific means, for all we know.
Surely, she wouldn't have fooled him into having sex with her by posing as the dead Moira.
And in none of her recent appearances has she appeared to have been pregnant. Sure, she's a shapeshifter, but she's been through some tough physical fights, including a death, recently. Who knows how Bendis figures time elapses. The flashback says she gave birth about a year ago. When was that? My estimation is that it would need to be sometime after Messiah Complex.
