The ComicBook/RedSkull from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' to be specific. His name is Johan ''Schmidt'' and they share an interest in higher life forms than humans. They could be family, in-laws, or maybe part of a Evilutionary club whose members adopt the name "Schmidt". It's such a common name that it could be an ironic in-joke for the superpowered elitists. That was probably the idea behind his name. Fox wanted to use as much of ComicBook/RedSkull as possible without being sued.

* Perhaps a scene that died on the cutting room floor went along the lines of:
--> '''Nazi''': ''You'' are Herr Schmidt?
--> '''Shaw''': I am afraid the Red Skull is indisposed. He sent me in his stead. I am Sebastian Shaw.

[[WMG: The first X-Men team was the inspiration for the Avengers Initiative]]
Again, assuming a hypothetical universe where the legal problems separating Fox and Marvel studios do not exist. In fact, given the 60s spy fiction setting, and factoring in the original inspiration for comics Hellfire Club, perhaps the team in this movie is just an alternate universe version of [[Series/TheAvengers a very different group of Avengers]].

** Confirmed to be that third one.

** Confirmed to be that third one. Though originally for ''X2'', [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Hank was supposed to be shown turning into Beast when the "destroy all Mutants" plan was launched toward the end, showing that his human-looking self was some sort of disguise]].



* The Dr. Shaw who was debating with Hank in ''X2'' is Shinobi Shaw, Sebastian's son in the comics. Though his name is [[AdaptationNameChange Sebastian Shaw Jr.]], since his first name was revealed to be Sebastian in the novelization.

* Jossed; In Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast JFK is dead and the government believes Magneto killed him, but Magneto insists he was actually trying to ''save'' the president and someone stopped him. And the BadFuture is caused by Mystique killing Trask, not this.

Added DiffLines:

** Or Mystique was just so messed up after killing Bolivar Trask (in the original "Days of Future Past" timeline, before Wolverine changed the past) that by the time of the original trilogy 30 years later she truly was a cruel, "cold-hearted bitch" who wouldn't give a second thought to sabotaging Cerebro and harming (potentially killing) Charles. After so much time spent with Magneto, doing who knows what, any sibling bond she had with Charles was totally forgotten. And Charles was so hurt by her betrayal that he simply never mentioned that he grew up with her.

Hence his having a noticable touch of an Irish accent - he learned to speak English in Ireland. It's also posible he was hunting [[NaziGermany Otto Skorzeny]] [[http://www.independent.ie/unsorted/features/scarface-skorzeny-the-hitler-henchman-who-became-a-kildare-farmer-258245.html who was living in Ireland at the time.]]

* Mystique's slowed aging could be used as the basis to introduce the infinity formula. Which then fell into Shields hands after Magneto broke into the CIA. Possibly using some on himself meaning they wouldn't have to recast MichaelFassbender for modern stories.
