What You Need To Know Before Seeing X-Men: Apocalypse

April 6, 2016 

The Marvel community are getting seriously excited about the new X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalpyse, due for release on 27th May. There have been many X-Men films before it, so we thought we'd offer a catch-up guide to prepare you for this latest instalment you can even play some marvel games whilst you await the upcoming film. Enjoy our summary of each movie...

X-Men (2000)

A girl named Marie (also known as Rogue) runs away from home and ends up meeting Wolverine. Both of them are attacked by Sabretooth, a mutant and associate of Magneto. Cyclops and Storm save them, before bringing them to the X-Mansion, run by Professor Charles Xavier. He leads a group of mutants who are trying to seek peace with the human race, educate young mutants, and stop Magneto from starting a war. Magneto forces Rogue to help him with his machine, which he places on Liberty Island with the intention of killing the world leaders who are meeting on nearby Ellis Island. He's stopped by the X-Men and imprisoned, but he promises to continue his fight.

X2 (2003)

Several months pass and Magneto is still in prison. A mutant called Nightcrawler infiltrates the White House and attempts to assassinate the president, forcing the government to issue anti-mutant measures. Scientist William Stryker discovers Professor X's secret school, while Magneto's partner Mystique plans to break her leader out of prison. When the X-Mansion is attacked by Stryker's forces, a few mutants escape including Logan, Rogue and Iceman. They meet in Boston, where they form an uneasy alliance with Magneto to stop Stryker and rescue Professor X, which they later accomplish at Alkali Lake. We lose Jean in the fight, much to the sadness of Wolverine and Scott.

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

Scott mourns Jean and returns to Alkali Lake to seek closure, where he discovers that she's actually still alive. She's brought back to the mansion, before Xavier tells Logan that Jean actually has two personalities: the violent, powerful Phoenix, and the Jean Grey they all know. The Phoenix awakens and returns to her childhood home, and violence occurs when both Magneto and Xavier attempt to woo her to their sides. She leaves with Magneto. News of a mutant cure draws mixed reactions, which Magneto uses to gather troops for his Brotherhood. He leads an attack on Alcatraz Island (home of the research facility, as well as the mutant boy who is the source of the cure). The X-Men stop them in destroying the cure, in their attempt to make mutants the dominant species.

X-Men: First Class (2011)

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men who were the best of friends, discovering their powers together for the first time. They worked with other mutants to stop World War III, but in the process, a rift between them opened, and so began the eternal war between the Brotherhood and the X-Men.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

The X-Men send Wolverine's consciousness back in time to 1973 to prevent the assassination of Bolivar Trask, in this sequel to both The Wolverine and X-Men: First Class.
