The year is now 1962, and CIA agent Moira [=MacTaggert=] (Rose Byrne) finds that Schmidt, now going by the name Sebastian Shaw (Creator/KevinBacon), is working alongside mutants in a conspiracy involving the highest levels of the American and Russian governments. When she enlists Dr. Xavier to help her hunt down Shaw, Charles and Erik are unexpectedly drawn together. As they become close friends, the two of them work together to build a team of mutants (some familiar, some new) to stop Shaw and avert the greatest threat to humanity the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opens, which begins the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.
