*** On the other hand, there are some more technologies, that are far more developed than they had been in our world (see alternative History) or could have been by technical standarts of that time. So this could be just other cases of an alternative History and Timeline.

** To persuade Congress to consider his Sentinel program, Trask quotes Xavier's Oxford dissertation from ''First Class'' on the near-immediate eradication of the human sub-species ''homo neanderthalensis'' upon the appearance of their "mutated, more-evolved cousins," ''Homo sapiens'', alluding to the idea that mutants will eventually drive ordinary humans into extinction.

** Charles in 1973 regards Magneto as a monster, and Erik called himself "FrankensteinsMonster" in ''First Class''.

* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Peter Maximoff is portrayed more positively ''and'' more negatively in comparison to the original source. In the comics, he is often an outright ''jerk'' (often intentionally), but in this film, he's more of a merry mischief-maker. He can easily flee on his own once the breakout goes bust, but instead, he goes out of his way to save Logan, Charles and Erik, even though he had already freed the latter from prison by technicality. Quicksilver is also clearly not impressed (if amused) by the idea that he helped free the person suspected of killing JFK once he finds out, [[spoiler:and is shown to be stunned (either in amazement or horror) by Magneto's "demonstration" in the climax]]. Comic book Quicksilver may be a world-class asshole and suffer from HeelFaceRevolvingDoor, but he is well-meaning at the core and can be counted on to do the right thing. Here, he's just a bored teenager with a kleptomaniac streak who doesn't really care about being a productive member of society, and who has to have the breakout sold to him as an opportunity to raise hell, as it's clear that he wouldn't have done it of his own volition otherwise.

* AdaptationalHeroism: ** Mystique is given a very realistic and sympathetic motivation for her StartOfDarkness moment, in contrast to her depiction in the comics. In fact, the film goes so far as to establish that [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope prior to killing Bolivar Trask]], [[ThouShallNotKill she'd never taken a single life during one of her crimes]]. [[spoiler: Additionally, she pulls a HeelFaceTurn and not only spares Trask, but rescues the president from Magneto during the climax. Presumably this negates her role as a villain in the original ''Film/XMen'' trilogy via CosmicRetcon]]. * AdaptationalVillainy: ** While in the original comic book Bolivar Trask wasn't a good guy by any means, he did eventually come to realise that Mutants are not a threat to humanity and [[spoiler:even performs a HeroicSacrifice to stop the Sentinels]]. Neither of those happen in the movie.

How can he be both adaptational villainy AND heroism?
** In the comics, Quicksilver is often an outright ''jerk'' (often intentionally). In this film, he's more of a merry mischief-maker. Overall, he is still more heroic than most adaptations portray him, and while he can easily make it out on his own once the breakout goes bust, he instead goes out of his way to save Logan, Charles and Magneto, even though he already broke the latter out of his prison by technicality. He is also clearly not impressed, if amused, by the idea that he helped free the person suspected of killing JFK once he finds out, [[spoiler:and is especially shown to be stunned (either in amazement or horror) by Magneto's "demonstration" in the climax]].

** [[invoked]] During the CrowningMomentOfAwesome where Magneto lifts up RFK Stadium, ads for Mountain Dew, Adidas, and various other brands can be seen, though this can be at least partly justified by the fact that sports stadiums do in fact have lots of advertising on and around them. Kind of interesting that there's no advertising visible of any companies that have since gone out of business, though...
