Today's Last Kiss: Booty Call from Her Se-Xman

For those of you who don’t read comics (or minds), Charles Xavier is “Professor X”—the telepathic leader of Marvel’s mutant X-Men.

Not that this is a test, but—bonus points if you know why the woman in today’s Last Kiss comic can’t be writer Tony Isabella’s Marvel character Misty Knight.
