Eric Schmidt is ... Professor X
Professor Charles Francis Xavier is a legendary telepath and headmaster of Xavier Academy, a Hogwarts for teenage X-Men. Schmidt famously once said, "We can more or less know what you're thinking about." As chairman of the Google X-Men, he's guiding a flock of Googleplex mutants as they construct fleets of driverless cars, design privacy-eviscerating video glasses, fund interplanetary travel, and prepare humanity for the singularity when man and machine merge. Are Schmidt's intentions good or evil? As with most comic book characters, you'll have to wait until the next issue to find out.
