* CompleteMonster: [[EvilutionaryBiologist Klaus Schmidt]], a.k.a. [[BigBad Sebastian Shaw]], is a {{diabolical|Mastermind}} mutant supremacist who [[FantasticRacism believes humans to be inferior to mutants]]. As a [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] MadScientist, he used his position to try to find "gifted" mutants, and upon finding a younger [[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} Erik Lensherr]], he [[YouKilledMyFather killed his mother]] after Erik failed to impress him with his powers, [[TheCorrupter solely to motivate him]], before subjecting Erik to [[ColdBloodedTorture horrible experiments]]. After [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the war]], he [[NaziGrandpa adopts the Shaw identity]] and [[FauxAffablyEvil ingratiates himself]] to high-ranking members of the government with his [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesHellfireClub Hellfire Club]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating Russia and America alike]]. Shaw assaults a {{CIA}} facility, murdering every agent within, and when one of the young mutants stands up to him, Shaw, [[{{Hypocrite}} despite his creed]] of "not harming his own kind," murders him without hesitation and with barely-concealed enjoyment. Shaw's ultimate goal was to push Russia and America into nuclear war, allowing mutant-kind to thrive in the aftermath and creating a kingdom of mutants that he himself would rule. Even when thwarted, Shaw planned to absorb all the nuclear radiation in his atomic sub and [[PersonOfMassDestruction unleash it upon Cuba]] to destroy it personally and trigger atomic war.

* AngstWhatAngst: Xavier is crippled and loses the two people he cares most in the world in a single day. Any normal person would suffer from depression, if not an outright nervous breakdown, but the writers completely gloss over the trauma Charles must have experienced. There would have been hours of surgery and a ''very'' difficult recovery period where he would have to adjust to life as a paraplegic. It's hard to believe that he would be fine in his last scene. ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' rectifies this by revealing that Xavier had bottled up his emotions as a coping mechanism, but the dam he had placed over his pain finally bursts when he's [[DespairEventHorizon forced to close his school]] after a single semester.
