Professor's been there enough times "on camera" to have plausibly hidden it there.
...Hickman has a pretty good grasp of Hank and Charles relationship: they had gong from being teacher and student to being peers with a strong sense of mutual admiration and friendship between them.
Xavier, not only was at the Jean Grey School--but Beast was also there and helped up the school on the map. There is nothing wrong with the scene--as far as beast--could be artist interpretation or it occurred before he mutated.
Next Wednesday: Avengers 14, Dream Thief 2, New Avng 7, Sup Spidey 12, Uncanny Avng 9
Spider-Man from the beginning! Last ish: ASM #15 - Chameleon hires Kraven (first appearance!) to kill Spidey.
So Xavier hides the gem in his office...in a safe...with the password being a non-case sensitive word that was on THE SIGN FOR HIS SCHOOL?!
Xavier was one of those idiots who used "password" to lock his AOL account, wasn't he?
Isn't this spectacular? Look at how Epting gives the scene sparkle and class, and how the revelation instantly moves Henry over to where the Illuminati are. That office scene put me into the same mode as Brubaker and Eptings Marvel Project, where the refined officialdom of the Doctor was replaced by the Lawyer. I love that sort of storytelling by Epting, because it takes you out of the genre of super Heroing, and puts you almost into the 19th Century.
I see the Beast is still the unevolved version from All New X-Men, and Cap is in his traditional garb, not the Ultimates suit like he is in Uncanny. And I wonder why Black Bolt is holding all the gems? Is it because he can't speak his wishes without destroying everything?
This is going to be a phenomenol piece when they all decide to use gems to do something. There is going to be so much discussion around what the course of action should be and why they should do it, and are they prepared for the consequences, including a new Earth and Universe.
Also, are we certain any of this is actually happening to Beast for real? Has he actually left the Lawyers office, or is he still sitting in the Lawyers chair after he got the trigger "remember"?

Visited NY and DC and saw Spider-Man Turn off the Dark.
I think it might just be a nice way to give the poor guy something to do in the story, since he does so little because he doesn't speak. You literally forget the poor guy is there in the room sometimes.
