Learn how the mutants joined forces from the beginning in X-Men: First Class, which hit theaters on June 3, 2011.

The Beginning

X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier (soon to become Professor X). Charles is a professor and expert in the study of mutants, namely because he himself can read and control minds. He and his new friend Erik Lehnsherr (soon to become Magneto) begin rounding up the mutants throughout the world, hoping to train them, encourage them and show them that they're not alone.

The Enemy

Meanwhile, Sebastian Shaw - a mutant with the ability to absorb energy - is initiating World War III. He plans to pit Russia and the USA against each other, so that the world will fall, leaving room for the mutant race to prevail. But a young boy from his past has resurfaced, a boy whose life Sebastian destroyed. And that boy is Erik. Armed with a magnetic power, Erik plans to destroy Sebastian for the pain he caused him. One way or another.

The Rivalry Is Born

Eventually, Erik’s blood thirst and belief that humans are the enemy put him and Charles at odds. And so begins the rivalry between Magneto’s supporters and Professor X’s loyal students, the X-Men.

The Bottom Line

X-Men: First Class is the prequel to Marvel’s popular X-Men franchise, and it definitely has the same intensity and wow-factor as the other films. Fans of the movies, or fans of science fiction, will love X-Men: First Class. And don’t miss the soon-to-be familiar face, Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique. Jennifer will be starring as Katniss Everdeen in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
