* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Hank is this to the dispirited Charles; the latter is so desperate to escape from his mental pain that he would most likely have died from alcohol poisoning if [=McCoy=] wasn't around to supervise him. But it works the other way around, too, as the approval-seeking Hank has voluntarily suppressed his individuality (i.e. he has no career, hobby, or social life) just to attend to Xavier's needs 24/7, and is thus defining himself exclusively through his dutiful service to his ex-mentor. These are strong indicators that they are both trapped in an unhealthy co-dependent relationship.

* BehindTheBlack: When Wolverine awakes to the new future and meets Jean, he walks right up to her but doesn't notice Scott though he should be in his field of view. Well-disguised since his initial approach has Scott on the other side of the door from him as Jean stands in the doorway, although this becomes less justified as they converse. Possibly justified by Wolverine's shock at the altered timeline in which he has just discovered someone he loves is still alive, and might therefore have some trouble absorbing all the details of his situation.

** On a more meta level, Mystique is the only mutant back in the past who has been doing ''anything'' for the last few years. (Magneto was stuck in the Pentagon for a decade, and Xavier has been moping around the house since the start of the Vietnam War.) Even once the plot takes off, she's arguably the most active character.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Mystique is given a very realistic and sympathetic motivation for her StartOfDarkness moment, in contrast to her depiction in the comics.

[[spoiler:Additionally, she pulls a HeelFaceTurn and not only spares Trask, but rescues the president from Magneto during the climax.

* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: The once effervescent and idealistic Xavier we saw in ''First Class'' has crumbled into a heap of melancholia and cynicism after 1963. His telepathy, which he had been at ease with since he was 12 years old, has suddenly become a heavy burden that he avoids using at all cost. Charles' social drinking has deteriorated into alcoholism, and he gives up on other activities that he used to enjoy, such as teaching, scientific research and womanizing, in favour of a self-imposed exile from everything that exists beyond his mansion. Xavier has more or less reduced himself into a ManChild who is completely dependent on Hank, when in the other movies, various mutants rely on the paternal telepath for emotional support. Even the way he dresses has changed dramatically; the impeccable suits that define Professor X's style have been replaced by a gaudy paisley shirt paired with a brown leather jacket, or if he's feeling especially lazy, just an undershirt with jeans. Charles has also neglected his grooming, which makes him look like a confused hippie or a hobo instead of a well-adjusted, upper-class academic.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: Magneto was arrested for his involvement in [[WhoShotJFK Kennedy's death]] (as in the magic bullet; the ViralMarketing raises the hypothesis that Mystique in guise of Lee Harvey Oswald was the one who shot), and the Paris Peace Accords that closed America's involvement with the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar now has Dr. Bolivar Trask, Major William Stryker and some mutants in attendance.

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' may have been erased through the CosmicRetcon, but it's featured in flashback scenes and its existence is at least acknowledged. ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' however (aside from a flashback scene from Victor crushing Logan's claws), is very hard to reconcile with the events shown: William Stryker is played by a younger actor and holds a different rank and job, which ''could'' be just TheOtherDarrin, and all of Wolverine's flashbacks to his adamantium coating come from ''X2''. In addition, it's strongly implied that he doesn't know Wolverine yet, and this movie takes place around the end of the Vietnam War, but according to ''Origins'' they met during it. It is possible that ''Origins'' had yet to occur as Stryker had seen Logan and went to find him.

** Quicksilver is one of the fastest characters in the Marvel universe, but he has limitations on just how fast, generally still being well under the speed of sound. In the movie the characters mistake him for being a teleporter, and fans noted that his speed and power set (capable of redirecting bullets with ease and shattering glass by vibrating his hands) was closer to Franchise/TheFlash, who explicitly has the speed advantage against Quicksilver in inter-company crossover stories.

* MirrorScare: A variant where a security guard spots Quicksilver in the reflection on the elevator wall after he picks up his hat from the ground.



** Quicksilver's quip to Magneto: "So, you control metal? My mom knew a guy who could do that." Erik is his father in the comics.
** Quicksilver has a little brown-haired girl on his lap while watching tv. The girl is either Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch or, based on a cut scene in which Quicksilver and the little girl's mom tells her to "go up and bug your sister," Lorna Dane AKA Polaris as in the House of M timeline (given Peter and Wanda are twins and Polaris is only their half-sister, probably the latter). The credits themselves only identify her as Quicksilver's sister.

** Charles' introduction, featuring a pull-back from Patrick Stewart's eye that flies the camera through the guts of the X-Men jet, is almost certainly a shout-out to the opening shot of StarTrekFirstContact.
