marvel - purple barton

God if everybody would just let me do it.

Okay, Marvel fans of the flist (all three of you), I am having a problem. As usual, I am having a timeline problem, because it is one of those things that, as a fangirl, I am far more worried about than the people who made the movie are. I am trying to work out some kind of functional timeline of the nebulous period between Raven and Charles in the kitchen and Raven and Charles in England (which is quite a long time, actually, now that I look at it).

But this is the problem I keep running up against on the various Marvel wikis:
A natural genius, Charles completed high school at sixteen. He attended Oxford University accompanied by Raven. He earned Ph.D.s in Genetics, Biophysics, and Psychology. After completing his thesis on genetic mutation, he was approached by Agent Moira MacTaggert [etc.]

Is any of this canon? Because I don't remember it. There are several Marvel wikis, but this particular article is copied verbatim on all of them. It seems like imported canon at best and an ass-pull at the worst.

I'm not crazy, right? Like, I'm pretty sure that's something I wouldn't have missed.

(I'm not going to all this semi-frantic effort to write D/s AU, why would you even think I was?)

ETA: I should note what we've been hashing out here is XMFC canon, not comics canon. Because MOTHER OF GOD who even knows what's going on in comics canon.
