Jack Winters (the Living Diamond), is Emma Frost's fatherJack Winters the Living Diamond from X-Men #40, was an evil mutant with telepathic powers who, as a result of exposure to a radioactive element, mutated even further into a man made of "living, flexible diamond." This power combination, telepathy, combined with the ability to turn to diamond acquired as a further mutation later in life, is incredibly idiosyncratic. What we saw of Jack showed him as a working-class, criminal sort, bank robber and burglar, which fits with Emma Frost's background as growing up poor and working class. Jack Winters was certainly old enough to be Emma's father, as a balding male when Cyclops was barely post-pubescent (and it is known Emma Frost is the same age as the original five X-Men). The two have oddly similar last names: Jack Winters, Emma Frost.
One of Sunfire's mutant powers is longevity.Sunfire's parents were killed by America's use of atomic bombs on Japan. Assuming he was a baby, that would make him about 67 in 2011, and thus far there hasn't been any explanation of his longevity. Baron Zemo II has a similar origin, although his longevity is explained by regular use of Chemical X. It's possible the atomic bomb reference may be "topical," but 1) thus far all World War II references haven't been topical (with the possible exception of Ben and Reed's wartime careers), and 2) it's something of a defining moment for the character difficult to shift off to a later event like Tony Stark's Vietnam origin.
Wolverine's healing factor requires periodic use of his clawsWolverine's old, uses his claws a lot and doesn't age. Meanwhile Old Man Logan has him being old and not using his claws since the villains took over and aging. Clearly he needs to use his claws to keep his healing factor sharp.
Apocalypse isn't immortal, just hiding his age with the rejuvenation chambers.I find it hard to believe that someone could simply be born immortal, so he's about 85 but the chambers keep him young and fresh.
Alternatively, Apocalypse has Healing Factor related Longevity.
Destiny was infertileIn-universe explanation for why Mystique was originally going to be Nightcrawler's biological father, but was later decided to having Azazel be his father. Mystique's original plan was to get Destiny pregnant as a man, but when Destiny was tested for infertility Mystique sought an alternative solution. Azazel was understandably surprised, but agreed to the deal. 9 months later, Kurt was born.
The current Bishop is not the same as the 90s character.Given the massive Character Derailment, and the fact that his home future that's been seen recently bears only a passing resemblance to the one described in 90s flashbacks, he's obviously been switched with an Alternate Self.
Wolverine is Jesus in disguise.That whole thing about being a Canadian from the 1700s? Total Red Herring and he's really a poor carpenter from Israel who was born around 1 BC. Think about it both were short and Jesus was presumably hairy. Wolverine could survive crucifixion and come back a bit later after being knocked out. Also Mary Magdalene is often associated with red and to quote wolvie in that awful new Spider-man cartoon he "likes [him] a redhead." Also something about Dan Brown. As for the complete change in personality? Well thinking about all the terrible stuff that the universe has put wolverine through in the last 200 years alone I wouldn't blame anyone for being a dick if they went through that kind of crap for ten times longer. As for how he is on so many teams at once? Jesus did it.
Xorn was Onslaught.After the events of Onslaught: Marvel Universe he survived as a ghost on astral plane, Shadow King-style. After mustering up enough strength he possessed Xorn and created the solid telekinetic projection of Magneto's face containing his white hole of a head. And later he inhaled the drug containing alien parasite Sublime who started to fight Onslaught for control over Xorn's body which explains the subsequent irrational behavior of "Magneto". All that and the murders they had forced Xorn to commit drove him insane so when he came back in New Avengers he was a genuine sociopath.
The entire Mutants as Metaphor gimmick is a well placed Batman Gambit to make the fans really think deeply about them.I realized this a while ago when posting on the JBM/Headscratcher page. Some fans Agree that mutants are dangerous and a Mutant Registration act is actually a plausible idea. Think about it, this is the exact thing Marvel wanted to do with Civil War. Look at it carefully:
Klaus Schmidt is a cousin or brother of Johann Scmidt.Now, I realize that the surname is merely the German version of "Smith," but it is remarkable how similarly they both turned their back on National Socialism as an economic policy in of itself to embrace even worse evil, if you consider it.
Deadpool really is a mutantWhile he was artificially endowed with his healing, he already had one mutant ability shared with Squirrel Girl and She-Hulk: The ability to see the Fourth Wall. However, he is officially classified as a mutate, due to behind artificially endowed with another power, so when characters insist he's not a mutant, they're technically right as a mutant in Marvel's sense means to only have powers they were born with. However, it means mutants like Beast, who's powers were artificially upped and as such no longer fitting the classification, actually have no right to tell him he's not allowed into the X-Men on the grounds of not fitting the classification of mutant. So he is a mutant, but not anymore.
Dr. Manhattan created the X-MenBald guy with freaky abilities? Check. Most popular character is a mass murderer? Check. Is it a Mind Screw? CHECK!
ALL Mutants have the power to come back from the dead.It would explain so much.
Everything shown in the X-Family-related media is a result of psychic manipulation.Every use of mental powers that looks the slightest bit fishy is proof. Everything that might disprove it is a memory fabricated by psychic mutants to cover their tracks. First, Xavier led the hive mind; later, Emma Frost took over. In the Ultimate Marvel universe, they rule separate hives.
The Celestials who added the mutant "x-factor" gene to humanity feed on psionic energy released by mutant powers.All the battles between mutants are hors d'oeuvres to them. The powers themselves are a side effect. The reason all mutants are different is that they like a variety of flavors.
Alternatively, The Celestials created the mutants to sow the seeds of bloodshed, which they could use as human sacrifices to feed their Magitek industry.In The Eternals, The Celestials' technology is described as being made of rock imbued with magical power. Various magical traditions believe stone can be enchanted by absorbing the blood or Life Energy of people sacrificed upon it. The Celestials plan to sit back and watch the superpowered freaks they created wipe out each other & the normal people; then, when there's nobody left, they will harvest the bedrock of the planet, which will be empowered with massive amounts of magic energy by the deaths of entire species, and use it to build countless devices for export throughout their intergalactic empire.
Corsair is just fine.At the risk of being a Captain Obvious... it seems unlikely that Corsair's really dead, even though he's the sort of C-List Fodder that you can get away with killing. (He hadn't been seen for some time, and so he's more expendable to The Verse than characters who got a lot deader.) Anyway... "The Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire" was a lot bloodier than many an X-Men arc, with limb-ripping ahoy. Corsair's "death" was much cleaner than any other in the entire arc (and there were many), and his body was buried on a habitable but uninhabited planet... the perfect place to leave a character you want to get better but not return right away.
The scene where Phoenix fights Galactus is from the future.The Phoenix lander recently discovered water ice in the Martian arctic. This discovery leads to people building Martian colonies and surviving a catastrophe that destroys all humans on Earth. (Probably an asteroid impact or pollution) However, humanity survives, because of their Mars colonies, and in the far future, people only remember that "Once there was a Phoenix that dealt fierce blows to a destroyer of civilizations."
The Phoenix will Retcon out the Decimation, End of Grey's storyline, Civil War, and One More Day once Joe Quesada leaves Marvel.Jean Grey's gonna come back. When she does, she'll find out the world's been rewritten since she's been gone into a place she really, really doesn't wanna be. So, either we have another cosmic temper-tantrum looming on the horizon, or one massive Fix Fic by the Powers that Be after Quesadilla leaves. Maybe both.
Apocalypse is a lost PrimarchThink about it: he's immortal, his parents are unknown, he was found in a place a baby shouldn't be able to survive, and he is trying to take over the world. The way he looks is a result of Warp mutation.
Mutants are actually several different subspecies.Even if all mutations are activated by the same genetic sequence, mutants can pretty clearly be separated into elementals, psionics, superhumans, and bestials.
Mutants all have one power: the first instance of major duress in their lives activates a corresponding power based on their personality and the problem at hand to protect them.Most mutant powers seem to be random. The X-Gene is actually a complicated, semi-sentient genetic code that activates when its host first experiences stress and applies a reactionary solution to the problem.
Magneto has been playing everyone, or really really fails.He can generate magnetic fields of several million Gauss. Magnetism is, as we all know, an aspect of electro-weak force. He should be able to induce radiation and massive electrical fields at will. He should be able to throw ball lighting and kill with a thought.
Alternatively, Wolverine has another mutant power: colocation.That's why he can be having adventures with the X-Men, the Avengers, and on his own in three different parts of the world simultaneously. No one notices or thinks to call him on it because, compared to Wolverine's other powers, colocation is pretty subtle.
The Homo superior thing is not just Artistic License - Biology, but someone's propagandaIn mainstream Marvel continuity, the idea of mutants as a "new species" doesn't stand up to biological scrutiny [or even far less so than the idea of superpowers]. Mutants are described as being a single new species, but they're wildly divergent variations off a clear human mainstream. Mutants and humans can interbreed and produce viable offspring; more pointedly, humans can have mutant babies, and mutants have had normal human babies. Mutants aren't an isolated population speciating from normal humanity; they're a population distinguished from normal humanity based on strangeness. People like Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, and Peter Parker are considered "human" because their powers manifested after contact with radiation or drugs. Scott Summers, Jean Grey, and Erik Magnus Lehnsherr are not considered "human" because their powers didn't manifest after contact with serums or gamma rays. Yet, rising levels of ambient radiation due to nuclear testing have been cited a few times as a cause for the growth in the mutant population during the latter twentieth century. Word of God at different times has suggested that the Celestials long ago put a "kink" into human DNA allowing the development of powers. Perhaps it's all part of the same biological mechanism, and the only real difference between a mutant and an "altered human" is how close somebody was to having that superhuman capability triggered (either through genetics, environment, or both) and therefore how little an impetus it took to push them over the threshold. (Consider how nobody's managed to properly duplicate the super-soldier serum's effects. Perhaps it's because nobody else had Steve Rogers.) Going by the weirdly biased name Homo superior itself, which would more likely have been called Homo mutandis or some such by a reasonable biologist, the whole "mutant species" idea was probably coined by a mutant supremacist very early on. Human reactionaries seized on the fear of mutants supplanting humanity, and unfortunately, even peacefully-inclined mutant separatists like Charles Xavier found the idea useful or unavoidable.
Storm isn't really the happily married wife of Black Panther. She's acting as a secret agent.That whole "Wakanda won't share the cure to cancer with the world cause y'all suck" thing? That really burned Storm up. So much so that she decided to infiltrate Wakanda, obtain the cure for cancer, and smuggle it back out. And what better cover could she have than the wife of the ruler of Wakanda? The divorce papers are already lined up, once she's got the secret, she's out of there!
The government is fanning anti-mutant hysteria... because they created them.Mutants are the result of the government isolating the genetic quirk that gave Wolverine his fantastic and using it in a early version of the super-soldier program. The original test subjects displayed no superhuman abilities but it sure did pay of in the long term!
Mystique and Changeling were/are the same person.This is why the X-Men trust Mystique time and again despite her many Heel Face Turns—because Xavier trusts her. The Changeling never existed to begin with. He was just a cover identity. Any sightings of his ghost or his body being turned into a zuvembie are merely tricks of the imagination. Alternately, Mephisto did it.
Jubilee is actually the Jubilee line.Well first, they share a name. Secondly, they're both new(ish). Thirdly, the resemblance between the London Underground logo and Jubilee's earrings in the '90s cartoon is uncanny.
Continuity Errors/Alternate Timelines/Comic Time/Multiple Wolverines are the result of the recent major reality warping events in the last couple decades.Avengers Disassembled. House of M. One More Day. All were major events that happened in a relatively short time apart in Comic Time. With the amount of stress placed on the 616 universe from all these events, something had to give. And something did. After surviving House of M's irreversible Mutant Decimation, the 616 Universe was permanently damaged, resulting in temporal anomalies. These anomalies include Compressed time (Comic Time), Spacial and Temporal Distortions (Having at least 3 damn Wolverines running around), and branching timelines that result in multiple pasts and futures. Every alternate continuity is a shock wave from the "ground zero" of 616's damaged existence with the epicenter being House of M, with One More Day and Avengers Disassembled amplifying the effects. So yeah, thanks Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, and pretty much mutants in general. No wonder you guys get so much hate, everyone throughout multiple timelines knows sub-consciously you're to blame for Crapsack Worlds like Days of Future's Past and Marvel: Ruins.
The Quicksilver we see now is not the real Quicksilver, but a creation of Wanda's powers.Wanda killed the real Pietro in yet another fit of insanity, and to deal with this, replaced him with one created from her reality-warping abilities, similar to how she made her children. At first, it acted much like the real Pietro did; however, as Wanda removed herself farther and farther from reality, so did the Pietro clone, and began to act erratically. When everyone realized Wanda was losing it, Pietro, being part of her mind and symbolizing all she wanted to hold on to, attempts to protect herself by urging her to create the House of M world. The reason why Wanda was able to 'resurrect' Pietro when Magneto killed him out of rage, was that it wasn't Pietro, but something she created from her memories. Afterward, without Wanda to direct his actions, Pietro went completely off the rails going off her last state of mind. It isn't until Wanda chooses to live in obscurity and relative normalcy that 'Pietro' begins to regain a modicum of sanity.
Magneto's powers actually make sense!You see, Magneto has either reality warping, or energy control, just restricted by a mental block. He only can do things he thinks electromagnetism can do. This explains the Selective Magnetism. He's either deluded or misinformed.
Destiny was the Irene Adler....or at least was supposed to be when this would have only made her 90-something as opposed to 120-something. Think about it: who better to get the drop on Sherlock Holmes than someone who can see what he'll do?
Kitty Pryde will lead a revolt against Scott Summers' Utopia.Once she recovers from having been stuck in the giant bullet, Kitty will take a good long look at Utopia and declare it a mutant ghetto. Given her ancestry (at least one grandparent survived the Holocaust), she's not going to like the idea of a mutant ghetto. And given that Scott left her to drift in the giant bullet, and Kurt died on Scott's watch, she's going to want to have words with Scott.
There is another Sean Madrox.Baby Sean Madrox received a slap while he was at the nursery. That made two of him. And one was kidnapped.
When we see him again, he will go by the code name of Chorus, having the powers of both his parents.
Wolverine is the Anthropomorphic Personification of gravityComics closely related to Wolverine (where he has a starring role) tend to end up revolving around him, as one mass does to the other, while comics that are only tangentially related to Wolverine still have him show up anyway, even if he doesn't do much - gravity has infinite range.
The Hulk's children shall become the new Horsemen of ApocalypseAnd the Hulk will have to put aside his differences with Xavier and the X-men to take them down. Skaar will become the new War, Hiro-Kala shall become death, Carmilla Black will finally be confirmed as Banner's daughter and become the new Pestilence, and Lyra will become Famine because there was nothing left.
Mystique was Sherlock Holmes...needs no further explanation.
Azazel was once a devout member of the Russian Orthodox ChurchWhen his powers (and thus his demonic appearance) manifested, he was declared a demon, driven from his village, and excommunicated. The trauma of being exiled from his religious community is what drove him to embrace the atheism of Stalinism. Also, makes for very interesting contrast with his son.
Wolverine is an ephebophile
Silver Fox is Rose from OriginsI have always believed that.
Nate and Hope are warring with each other for the fate of the worldBut neither of them realises it.
When Nate re-manifested himself during Dark Reign, he had developed a few new applications of his powers, one of which was essentially precognition ('300 ways to tell the future'), which seemed to work by glancing at every way the future could potentially go from a situation and work out which were the most likely. While tangling with the Dark X-Men, he glimpsed the future that several have come to fear, where Hope wrecks the world and creates a dark and hopeless future. Essentially, what Bishop fears. He realises that in the future she uses her ability to mimic powers at their highest potential to copy his own unbelievably powerful abilities, and either tried abusing them or simply couldn't control them. Whatever she was trying to do to with them, it ends up with a horrific disaster that kills a million humans in an instant. Nate fears that any attempt to confront her directly would just give her the opportunity to access his powers, and uses the fight with the Dark X-Men to start an alternative plan. He somehow can't win a mental battle against Norman Osborne, he sets up the release of the Green Goblin persona which doesn't do anything to help him, and he walks right into a trap that gets his powers nullified. He then gets hooked up into the Omega Machine and is tortured by Sugar Man until he performs an action that burns out his power set...but not until the New Mutants arrive on the scene and are already battling to rescue him. The explanation for his powers being destroyed is acute nerve damage, which is an odd explanation for someone who has destroyed and reformed his entire body on a semi-regular basis. This was all part of a plan to only encounter Hope after he had lost his power set, denying her the ability to mimic it. Sealing his memory of what he foreseen was also part of his plan, trusting in himself to recover it as his powers returned and to find a way to stop the future cataclysm.
Unfortunately, what Nate didn't realise is that there's more to Hope's power than simple mimicry. It has been observed that people that she keeps close to her have a tendency to be affected by her, where they become almost respectful of her. Her Lights have been hinted to have fallen under her influence, and to not necessarily be wanting to stay with her of their own volition. Without his powers, Nate had no defense against this ability, and when Hope started working with him to train him in powerless fighting, he started falling under her influence as well, to the point where he has said he sees her as his sense of hope. She has noted that she thinks his powers are gradually getting stronger, and given her past of finding and igniting the powers of those who come to follow her, she may have the goal of helping X-Man get his powers back. By the time Nate recovers enough to remember what he saw, he may be too far under Hope's influence to stop it.
Hope Summers is a Summers by birth
Kurt Wagner and Hank McCoy are both MuppetsUnless it's a case of interspecies adoption, The Muppets would seem to indicate than humanoid muppets can, like mutants, be born of human parents. And they certainly look the part. It might also explain why they're not bundles of massive angst.
Earth-616 Nightcrawler will come back to life.Considering all the other major characters who have died and returned, it's no stretch. His teleportation ability will somehow factor in. When he returns he will have an awkward exchange with the Ao A Nightcrawler, who is currently in the Earth-616 universe.
Illyana is still dead.In "Colossus: Bloodlines", we learned that Piotr Rasputin is a direct descendant of Grigor Rasputin, who needed a living descendant's body to inhabit. Unable to take over Piotr or his brother Mikael, he took over Illyana when he learned she was still alive. As the current Magik, Grigor coerced Colossus into becoming the new Juggernaut, and is now manipulating him to become Grigor's mindless slave.
Cyclops is currently mentally illA lot of people are quick to bash Scott because of the way he's acting is very extremist, or bash him for having an affair with Emma or whatever reason, but what a lot of people seem to forget is the reason why his affair with Emma started. Emma began giving him therapy because he was still suffering from PTSD and she used that to start the affair. Cyclops was unwell when it started, and instead of helping him she used it to have an affair. The entire thing meant that Cyke was in serious need of help, and by the end he lost his wife and was essentially mindraped by her from the future to push him past his guilt and have a serious relationship with her...But, he was never shown to be given any therapy for any of this or his already present problems. Then, there's what happened in Astonishing X-Men which likely screwed him up a bit, and the fact that students around him all lost their powers and got attacked and/or killed. Since that, The X-Men have been broken, pushed, and faced extinction, and during which Cyke never got any therapy for his numerous issues. The guy is a ticking time bomb waiting to break down, and that, combined with the situation, is making him behave how he is. Someone needs to do something quickly before he suffers a mental breakdown in the middle of a crisis.
In the 90's cartoon, Cortez would escape the dimension as a more powerful mutant than ever before.After being disillusioned by Magneto's unwillingness to attack humanity and Apocalypse using him, he starts to believe he himself is the true "messiah" of the mutants.
Somebody will try to make Dust wear more revealing clothes...and it'll go badly.There've already been three alternate versions of her with a drastic change of character, and while this is my opinion I feel she's best the way she is (though granted the shyness part could use a bit more work in my opinion, but that's a different matter.)
Cyclops' new team will get their own book.It will be titled something along the lines of the 'Unforgiven X-Men', and will feature X-Men and women who's credentials have been soiled by Never Live It Down moments and/or been considered villains at some point, as they try to keep peace between humans and mutants without support from others, save for SWORD. Like a mix between X-Force, X-Factor, and Xtreme X-Men. They won't be taking lives, but they'll be more proactive then previous versions of the group.
Chris Claremont created Excalibur to protect Kitty PrydeClaremont could sense the rise of the Dark Age Of Comics and wanted to protect his creation, both from the overly-sexualized artwork of the future Image stars and from the likelihood of her being killed off as Marvel went Darker and Edgier. This way, he got to write her and Alan Davis, an artist with older sensibilities, got to draw her. Being able to keep Rachel Summers and Nightcrawler safe was an added bonus.
X-Men comics will have a lot of Sentinels in 2013/2014Following Avengers VSX-Men, mutants are hated and feared more that ever before, which could cause the government to start using the Sentinels again. Also, considering that the Bad Future of the original Days of Future Past storyline was set in 2013, as well as the fact that the X-Men: Days of Future Past film is coming out in 2014, it will be a nice Shout-Out to the former and a great tie-in for the later.
Cyclops' current mental state is entirely caused by Emma FrostBecause in 90% of cases, being in a sexual relationship with your therapist makes your mental issues worse, this is the case even up to two years after the therapy. In Scott's case his therapist lied to him, telling him the only way for him to get better was to telepathically sleep with her, such a breach in trust would almost certainly place him in that 90%. Not to mention that none of his teammates seemed to care.
The Wolverine Publicity is a result of cloning.He's already been cloned once, and suffers from amnesia. Who's to say that his regenerative factor, some scientists monkeying with his DNA or both resulted in Wolverine copies and thus he ended up everywhere. Hey, if Doctor Doom can make completely realistic and identical copies so that the fans don't say "they ruined Doctor Doom!", why can't James Howlett?
Film series WMG
Movie Cyclops is not dead.How do we know Scott is "dead?" His glasses were floating. No body, no limbs, no blood. Nothing to show he was gone. Jean just depowered him and wiped his memories. So, he ran off, leaving his glasses behind. Xavier somehow knew this (maybe he read Jean's mind), so he didn't acknowledge the "death." Because she went ax-crazy and they had to deal with Magneto, he never got around to saying, "Hey, the Team Leader is not dead, but he has amnesia." So no one knew, and everyone thinks Cyke is dead.
None of those who "died" by Phoenix Disintegration are actually dead.They've been transported to another dimension. The Dark Dimension. Which tips its ruler Dormammu to Earth's existence. So the rebel Clea has to find a way to get to Earth and warn it against her Evil Overlord uncle. Oh, by the way, Xavier is comatose there. And Cyclops is sans glasses. Oh Crap. Well, there's other powerful mutants sent there by Phoenix. The vestigial link between Xavier's unconscious body and the one he hijacked in Earth (just before being dispatched by Phoenix) will be exploited by Dormammu to invade Earth. And then shit will get real. P.S.: Whether this will be a Doctor Strange movie or an X-Men movie is left as an exercise for the reader. P.P.S.: Note to Hollywood writers: you are free to use the above idea in any way you like. I (JC Cy C) don't even want credit.
Sabretooth met Mr. Sinister between X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men 1At some point between the two films Victor Creed encounters Mr. Sinister, who enhances Sabretooth's mutant powers, but has the result of radically altering his appearance, making him much more bestial and animalistic.
Origins: Wolverine suffers from a case of Unreliable NarratorIt's still in continuity with the other films, as it's the story that Wolverine, perhaps after X2, has pieced together about his past, explaining both the plot holes and Fridge Logic. That's why it features elements that no longer fit, such as Xavier being able to walk, or some of the mutant cameos in the facility.
Movie!Psylocke isn't deadShe blended into the shadows as one of her powers dictates. Also as a Psylocke fan, I want her back.
X-Men 4 will be about ApocalypseC'mon, how awesome will that be?
One of the mutants on Three Mile Island in X-Men Origins: Wolverine is Banshee.Specifically the red-haired fellow with his mouth taped shut. You know it makes perfect sense.
Havok is Cyclops' fatherGiven that age difference there would have to be with the former showing up in First Class, and the fact that poor Slim can't get no respect from the movie powers-that-be, why not? This is assuming that First Class is supposed to be in continuity with the other films, that is.
Charles Xavier will lose all his hair in X-Men: First Class.I mean, he appears in the movie with a full head of hair. There are two ways that he could lose his hair.
The reason why Xavier in X-Men: First Class still has hair long after developing his powers...Is that this isn't the same universe as the other films. The canon reason why Xavier is bald in the comics is because his hair fell out when he developed his powers. The same goes for the first four films, but the First Class film shows he has both powers and hair. That's because it all takes place in a world where his powers didn't affect his hair as well as all the other continuity changes.
Beast is Nightcrawler's father.This isn't my theory, it's here (post by pikahyper). Here's the logic:
Darwin is still alive.So Darwin was killed by Shaw in this movie. His powers were essentially "not dying", but he died anyway. Or did he? In the comics, he survives something similar by converting himself into energy. It's even a part of his origin story! In the movie, he first turns into a metallic substance after being attacked by Shaw, then into something resembling rock or gravel, and then we don't see much more. It's obvious his body was trying to find different ways to survive the excess energy. Afterwards, the rest of the team say they don't even have a body to bury. Sounds similar? Darwin may well have pulled off that trick in the movie, too. Darwin is still out there somewhere.
Meanwhile to the finale of First Class, Nikolai Sokolov has just been returned to Russia, in exchange for removing the missiles from Cuba, where he will be forced to continue development of the Shagohod. Two years later, Naked Snake is dispatched to Tselinoyarsk to retrieve him, starting the Virtuous Mission.The End (a plant dude), The Pain (some sort of animal empathy?), The Fear (super double-jointed-ness), The Sorrow (spirit medium), and Volgin (electricity powers) are mutants, which would explain their totally-unexplained-in-game powers. The Boss is just a super Badass Normal (or related to Captain America somehow?). Sebastian Shaw is a former member of the Philosophers who wants to destroy both the US and USSR in an If I Can't Have You moment with regards to the Legacy. Both Metal Gear and X-men have genetics as a major theme, so a connection is possible.
Xavier didn't actually erase Moira's memory.She is just pretending in order to mislead the CIA.
Sunfire will factor in the sequelIn the original comics, he was attacking Washington after his mother died from fallout of Hiroshima. It'd be more plausible for him to appear than the modern movies.
Magneto never lost his powers in The Last StandEarlier in the film he showed his Auschwitz number and said that no needle would ever penetrate his skin again. Take notice that his clothes are padded rather thickly and though he could not prevent the needle from entering at all as it's not made out of metal, the hypothetical padding explains the moving chess piece at the end, as he was feigning his powerless form.
X-23 will be played by Summer GlauIf she appears in a film that is. You know it makes sense.
Dave Barry appears in the second Origins film involving Wolverine.In Dave Barry Does Japan, he comments that a Japanese energy drink tastes like wolverine spit. The drink is called Hugo. Wolverine is played by Hugh Jackman (there are many readings for the syllable "go", many of which could be euphemisms for kissing or references to Wolverine). In one of the post-credits tags for Origins: Wolverine, he is in a Japanese bar, implying that his Japan-locale personal series takes place here. Dave Barry often encounters embarrassing situations, and Wolverine can always use the spare bit of humor to lighten an otherwise totally-awesome-but-lacking-rules-aside-from-cool fight, and what better way than trying to Midbattle Kiss the love interest and accidentally planting one on a sixty-year-old male American tourist?
Wolverine was Van Helsing in the pastHe's played by Hugh Jackman, was turned into a werewolf, and seems to be immortal. By extension of course, Wolverine has also been a cattle drover, a magician, and a musical star.
The next X-Men movie should be...X-Men: Apocalypse. I'm thinking Tony Todd as Apocalypse, Clive Owen as Mr. Sinister, and Michael Biehn as Cable (among other ideas).
X-Men Origins: Wolverine was actually a Danger Room scenario based on Logan's speculation about his missing memories.It's not his fault. He's the best there is at what he does, and what he does isn't writing.
Stryker knew about X2 in X-Men Origins.He captured Deadpool, a mutant who can break the fourth wall. Deadpool then told him about X2 and Stryker realized that he had to set that movie in motion. This explains why he spent so much money on giving Wolverine the Adamantium when Wolverine would probably turn against him anyway. This also explains why he continually tried to erase Wolverine's memory. Soon, Stryker found out that he dies in X2 and decided to destroy the X-men continuity, forcing the produces to have a reboot. Deadpool went along with this, knowing that he might actually have a part in the new reboot, but when he saw the fight scene between Wolverine and Gambit, he realized that this movie could never surpass the old X-men films. He tried to warn Stryker that the movie was getting stupid, but Stryker sewed his mouth shut. Angered by this, Deadpool decided to sabotage the movie by killing its main characters, thus forcing them to reboot X-Men Origins and give him his own movie. And the crazy thing is, it worked
Kayla did not die in X-Men Origins: WolverineThe character Kayla was based on had healing factor in the comics, so her movie self probably did too and she eventually recovered from her wounds.
Mariko Yashida will be played by Chiaki Kuriyama in the next Wolverine movieThis will make a lot more sense if you've seen the movies she's been in besides Kill Bill.
Even after his spinal injury, Xavier can still walk for short periods of time using his psychic powers.He is able to engage in telekinesis as well as telepathy, but using telekinesis to make himself walk is extremely taxing, so he can only do it for a few minutes at a time.
This universe has more than one Sabertooth.In other words, the character played by Liev Schrieber is an entirely distinct individual from the one played by Tyler Mane. The powers are different, the fighting styles are different, the hairstyle is different (notice that Liev Schrieber's Sabertooth never really changes his appearance even though he lives for over a hundred years), and Tyler Mane never makes any reference to their past (in fact, he barely talks). For that matter, Tyler Mane is bigger than Liev Schrieber.
That cowardly extra in First Class who tells Shaw to take the mutants and let the "normal people" go was being forced to do so.Shaw wanted the young mutants to join him against the humans, so he put a gun to a security guard and told him to loudly state his mutant prejudice, to convince them of humanity's evils. This explains why it sounded so much like Bad Bad Acting.
After First Class Azazel will rape Mystique, Magneto will kill him and Mystique will give birth to Nightcrawler and abandon him, because he looks much like his father.
The fourth X-Men movie will reveal the current relationship between Iceman and Rogue.Bobby doesn't appear to be happy with Rogue's decision to take the cure, even though she did it for the both of them. But they may have grown apart by the time the fourth movie (if ever) occurs.
The films are in the same universe as Mystery Science Theater 3000They're both set in the "not too distant future"...
The unnamed CIA "Man in Black" from First Class was...Richard Parker.Aka, the father of Peter. Think about it...known CIA agent, involved in deep-black intelligence work (as in the comics); surprisingly personable and responsible when dealing with these new powers; tragically murdered, with superpowered kids not being there to save them... Granted, the theory doesn't really work with existing (movie) continuity, due to rights and timeline issues, unless you screw around with canon until the universe is a de-facto or an outright reboot...in other words, considering these are Marvel properties, a perfect match!
Between First Class and the events of Wolverine, Beast developed a treatment to heal Xavier's spinal injuryWith the accidental and unfortunate side effect of making his hair fall out.
Magneto's machine from the first movie enhances a mutant's powersSo Cyclops mentioned in X2 that Jean started getting all phoenix-y after the first movie. Also notice how Wolverine goes from taking several seconds to heal minor cuts and wounds in the first movie to being able to instantly regenerate most of his skin and flesh while Phoenix is trying to disintegrate him in X3. Best guess is that Magneto's machine not only made regular humans into mutants, but enhanced the powers of existing ones.
Omega Red is based on Andrei Chikatilo.Russian child murderer first introduced about the time Chikatilo was caught? Hmm... He was even executed in a similar manner to Chikatilo, but I don't know if this was revealed before or after Chikatilo's death.
Michael Fassbender will show up to play Joseph.Joseph is a younger clone of Magneto.
The third "First Class" movie will end with Xavier using a new Cerebro to make everyone forget that the mutants exist.However, this will strain him so much that he will go bald, and it will also influence his memories, which will explain all the errors in his introduction to Wolverine in the first movie.
In The Wolverine, the Jean Grey we see in Wolverine's dreams is actually the Dark Phoenix.Self-explanatory.
Sabretooth looks different because Magneto tested his machine from the first movie on himTo be sure that the radiation had no effect on mutants. It actually triggered an enhancement in his mutation.
Emma Frost from Origins is a daughter of Emma Frost from First ClassAnd so is Kayla. One has mind-related powers, the other turns into diamond. First Class Emma has both.
Origins is what Wolverine is imagining in a bar.One version of Origins has a credit scene depicting Wolverine sitting in a bar, saying that he is "drinking to remember." Everything up to that point was him trying to piece his memories together. Maybe he even drank a worm that made him hallucinate the entire thing. The bar scene could possibly be sometime after he met the X-Men, thus explaining the presence of Cyclops and Professor X in the story.
Apocalypse, the Big Bad of the next movie, will be played by Jason Momoa, the actor behind Khal DrogoBecause... Well, look how perfect this is!
Cable and Deadpool will be introduced/reintroduced for the Apocalypse movieOne, because Cable was important in the original Age Of Apocalypse storyline, and two, because Deadpool was (and is still) associated with that character. Given the backlash against Dudepeel, it'd be a perfect opportunity to fix the latter character and bring the former into the film series.
The Wolverine takes place in 2007 or 2008.According to the 25 Moments website, The Last Stand takes place in 2006. Hugh Jackman said on STAR 94.1 San Diego that The Wolverine takes place 18 months to 2 years after The Last Stand. That would mean that most of the movie takes place in either 2007 or 2008, with the post-credit scene that is two years later taking place in 2009 or 2010, just in time for Sentinels taking Xavier's school in 2010 according to the 25 Moments website.
Mystique has an additional limited precognition power.She based her default "normal" appearance on a vision of a popular actress from the future.
The "cosmic being" seen at the opening of X2 is the Phoenix.
