    I wonder how they really explain the student deaths to their kin.

    If the students have any family that care about them, yes. Otherwise... Telepathic mind wipes or hefty hush money payouts.

    It seems like a lot of the mutants are there because they don't have a lot of family left.

    Magneto told Cypher's family he died in a hunting accident, which raises even more questions.

    Questions like who did they say fired the shot, was there a police investigation and did the coroner notice that the bullet came from a handgun not a hunting rifle.

    His multidimensional law firm Landau, Luckman, and Lake (which also manages Logan's assets) apparently has invested Xavier's wealth in multidimensional/alternate reality ventures. Xavier never asked about the details.

    Think of all the natural resources the X-Men could exploit, using Shi'ar tech and their powers. Not just gold and diamonds but rare minerals. Which seems to me why so many governments have been kidnapping mutants for decades, even before the X-Men were formed. Ahab could use mutants as "hounds" to find other mutants, but what if he were using another kind of "hound" to find veins of precious metals and rare minerals?

    I believe it's plausible for Xavier to have used his political conections to get most of the X-Men legal visas, probably as student visas in his school. The only case I remember that became an issue was Northstar being threaten to be deported during Liu's Astonishing run. So I guess they only care about illegal Canadians that aren't name Logan.
    I did laugh out loud at this. Xavier using political connections? It's on panel since the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby days--he mind wipes and manipulates anyone he wants to get what he wants. Storm even accused him of such, wondering how he got her to leave Africa so easily and join the All New All Different team. Xavier only seems to play by the rules because he covers his tracks with his powers.

    Aside from Emma, who ran a school before the X-Men, not many of them seem to have official credentials. I believe this was pointed out during the first arc of Wolverine and The X-men when they had their first inspection but I could be remembering it wrong.
    Yes, that's my impression too. Most of them were never officially credentialed. New York City, county, and state have very strict regulations about who can teach. I don't know how the X-Men got away with instant teachers all these years. It doesn't work like that.

    Rent and mortgage free, but the estate's property taxes, though. Yikes. It's hundreds of acres.

    Is there a chapel on the grounds? Maybe some kind of religious exemptions for Nightcrawler?

    Since ResurrXion, Kitty has been funding the estate via Quentin Quire

    You think the property taxes in upstate New York was bad? What the ever loving fuck were they payingfor Central Park?
