“X-Men: First Class” follows the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
I was conned, I was told I had to watch this film to understand how the whole iron Man/Thor/ Other comic films all link together to make one big ending…then when we got there and saw the trailer for The Avengers, I got told “Oops no that’s the one I meant, but hey we’re here now!” grrr
I’ve not seen any of the other X men films, but as this was the prequel it didn’t really matter and wasn’t too bad I suppose!
