Below is the synopsis of "Logan," Patrick's final role as Professor X, per IMDb.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.

Patrick has successfully played Professor X in five mega-hit blockbusters from 2000 to 2017. While James McAvoy played the younger Charles Xavier in the prequels, Patrick portrays the more recognizable, older Professor X as a mentor to mutants everywhere. In fact, no one mentors superheroes the way this powerful telepath does. NO ONE!

Watch the already iconic "Logan" scene below, where Professor X has a telepathic seizure, psionically blasting everyone in close proximity. 

Below is the synopsis of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," per IMDb.

Set decades after Captain Kirk's five-year mission, a new generation of Starfleet officers set off in a new Enterprise on their own mission to go where no one has gone before.

Captain Picard is the Meme God! That's how you know he's been Patrick's most iconic role since the show premiered in 1987. Not only did Patrick play Picard on the hit show for seven years, but he starred in four "Star Trek" blockbusters as well.
