Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**
As to whether Shaw needs to consciously exercise his will to absorb KE, and therefore needs to know about the threat, I can only repeat that nuclear radiation would have killed Shaw if either were true. However could Shaw hope to sleep if he needed to be awake to fight off the damage from radioactive fallout in his postnuclear apocalypse paradise? However could a man in his eighties or nineties managed to fight off skin cancer and other kinds of skin damage if either were true?
The people of this country need regime change here, not abroad.
