Ultimate John Grey
Ultimate Marveluniverse, Professor Grey, while working in his greenhouse, is confronted by Wasp about his daughter's whereabouts [" Ultimate War" #2] . He tells her that he knew about Magneto being alive, and that the X-Men deliberately told him nothing about their safehouses so that no telepath could read the information from his mind. He reveals to Wasp that due to growing up with a mutant, he recognizes the feelings of being telepathically scanned. As such, he knows Wasp brought along S.H.I.E.L.D.telepaths. Like his mainstream counterpart, he is accepting of his daughter being a mutant.
