I think it's very possible even with Xaviers power level, Skull after wielding Chucks power for an hour and a half might not be quite as capable as Xavier, who has decades worth of experience wielding his power. So even if it's theoretically impossible to break free of Xavier mind controlling someone, I don't think it necessarily means that the same is true of Red Skull even when using Xaviers brain. There are different variables in play there.
Rewiring someones brain chemistry to induce orgasms.
Boostrapping brain chemistry.
Neutralizing neural receptors. (The Red skull didn't have to give Wanda painkillers if he had Xavier's full powerset. It also explains why he hasn't had any problems with hearing the entire worlds thoughts.)
But there is a clear difference between being made into someones puppet and what he did in the issue. Those feelings were there to begin with in some shape or form, and Wanda will probably acknowledge that after this whole debacle. It might also explain why he didn't just neutralize Rogue with telepathy.

I thought this was a great 2nd issue. It wasn't perfect but it definitely left me wanting more. Thor's decision to bridge the gap b/t mutants and humans now seems absurd after all the things he has overlooked, but we can chalk that up to him being terrified of Emma Frost now. Red Skull's new powers and the way he got them are terrifying, although the powers for mutants lie in the gene's not certain body parts. Still I give this issue a 8.5/10.
1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Ultimate Wolverine is coming back, sort of!
How resistant to telepathy is Rogue? I know back in the 1980's,Rogue was very resistant.Also Prof Xavier taught his students to have psionic defenses.In UXM#219,it was revealed that Psylocke tried to wipe out Alex's short term memory and failed:
Storm:You said he wouldn't remember.
Psylocke:He shouldn't have--but I also warned you,Storm,That Professor Xavier taught his students most effective psionic defenses.To edit Havok's memories more completely would have risked causing permanent damage.
