Topic: Comic Trivia... Can you gain a point of rep (and admit your age)

Ok Everyone here be honest and don't cheat.

I just read X-Men number one and it was so funny considering the time frame in which it was written (and Professor was a Mojofinger back in the day!) so anyway two trivia questions:

1) In X-Men number one Cyclops was refferred to as........

2) One of the x-men joked it took a lot of ________ to buy professor xaviers rolls royce.

I have a reprint of X-men 1 on my shelf, but I will not cheat.
So here are my guesses...

1) I recall chortling when I read this and thinking that lingo had changed, but I don't remember for sure. 
I am going to guess that he was referred to as a queer guy.

2)Don't remember this one at all.  It took a lot of bread to buy the rolls.

And yes, he was a butt hurter for a long time.  He was always yelling and bossing.  Hank McCoy was a wiseguy until a couple of issues in when he all of the sudden was the brainy mutant genius we know and love today.

HTC,
I was thinking, are you talking about an adjective that describes Cyclops or his nickname that he used to go by.  Cause if you are talking about the nickname, it's Slim.  I still can't remember what the adjective is, though.

Sorry guys, I don't read X-Men.

I do read Batman though!

I could take a few wild guesses though.

1) Don't know!
2) Money!

Did you know that if you were to second guess your decision to book time to visit a Native American community, it would be a Reservation reservation reservation?

If I recall correctly, I believe the villian that crushed Prof. X's legs was named was Lucifer

Again, if I recall correctly, he was able to walk again at later times, but only because of special environmental circumstances. Never a permanent rehabilitation (obviously)

Um, alright, so I guess that makes it my turn to ask a question?

I don't know the caliber of the "geek-dom" I'm dealing with here....so I'll go with one that even a less than die-hard may know.

Who is Juggernaut's closest mutant relative, and of what relation is that person?
