* In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', 1973 Charles briefly reminisces about the first time he met Raven, which was a much happier and more innocent period of his life than his current state of abject misery and self-destruction. One notable difference between his memory of the event and what we saw in ''First Class'' is that Charles as a kid never said, "And that's a promise" right after he told Raven that she would never have to steal again.
