* When Raven hears that Erik [[spoiler:just lost family]], she rushes to Charles as fast as she can. Not because 'some humans have hurt Magneto again, we need to protect the world from his retaliation.' But because 'Erik's in trouble.'

Added DiffLines:

* An extended version of the mall scene. This time it's abundantly clear that no one is scared or creeped out by Kurt: one kid who sees him playing another game with his tail calls him "Rad" and a group of people cheer for him when he dances.
** In addition, after Jean [[NoSocialSkills fails to casually talk with a couple of patrons]] at a record store, Scott cheers her up by teasingly comparing her to the redhead on a Music/CultureClub [[https://ronscloset.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/culture-club-1983-colour-ny-number-album-cover.jpg album cover.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Raven's desperate "CHARLES!!" when Magneto kidnaps Charles for Apocalypse's plans. Because, even if it's been almost a decade since they last met, Charles Xavier will always be Raven's big brother.

* As a CallBack to ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Xavier incorporates some of Logan's speech into his own when he suggests to Raven that she be the X-Men's combat instructor.
-->'''Charles''': This place needs to be more than a school. I need to be more than a teacher. I have to train these children to use their powers to use their powers to fight, for themselves and others.\\
'''Raven''': I truly wish you the best of luck with that, Charles.\\
'''Charles''': I don't need luck, I need you. I need your help, Raven. They need you. Storm. Scott. Jean. There are so many of us.

Added DiffLines:

** When Kurt asks what a mall is, Scott insists they all have to go to one now because "It's a matter of national pride". The scenes of the kids all running around the mall and joyriding together is a sight to behold. It cements the beginnings of the team's friendship perfectly.


* Charles had kept his word to Logan and reopened the school to welcome mutants after the 1973 events. After being so depressed in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', it's wonderful that Xavier has regained most of his "joie de vie" from ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', and is genuinely happy again.

* Alex brings his young brother Scott to Xavier's school once his EyeBeams powers appear. It's nice to see Charles and Alex warmly hug each other when they meet. Havok was Professor X's student for only about a year before he was drafted to the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar, and he lived his own life afterwards, but Alex is still very appreciative of the guidance that Xavier gave to him when he was a teen.

* Ororo Munroe seems to be the respected leader and TeamMom of the street rats of Cairo. Look at her brief interaction with the kids; when she comes into their hideout with Apocalypse and tells them to leave, they obey instantly. Just to drive the interaction further, there's no indication that the kids are mutants; they may very well be humans, and yet they respect Ororo just fine. Fitting, considering how she will eventually become the TeamMom of X-Men as Storm.
* We see the beginning of Scott and Jean's relationship develop. Though they bump heads at first, they quickly grow fond of one-another as they realize they both share an inability to fully control their powers which both makes other students scared of them and makes them feel at least some shame over them. When Scott [[spoiler:loses his brother]], Jean also becomes the one to support and console him, encouraging him not to blame himself.
* Hank and Scott's interactions in the film; Hank is introduced in the film showcasing how him and Alex are old friends from their time as Charles' students 20 years ago, and Hank ends up being one of the first to introduce Scott to the school. He goes out of his way to design a means to help the young man see without vaporizing everything, and during the final battle, the two are ''constantly'' by each other's side. Given their mutual connection to Alex, it appears Hank is both going out of his way to take care of his friends' younger brother and [[spoiler:making sure the lad's safe after Alex's death]].

to:

* Alex accompanies Charles to the CIA building the next morning as both a friend and a protector. Havok isn't obligated to stay after he drops off his brother at the school, but being at the mansion again most likely triggered some nostalgic feelings in him, and Alex decides that he would like to spend some quality time with his former teacher. He even feels comfortable enough to tease Xavier about the latter's PowerPerversionPotential.

* Apocalypse brings Erik to Auschwitz, and the latter calls him on why he didn't save his people if he is an all powerful God and all. It's heartwarming in a twisted way since Apocalypse is actually a BadBoss, but he is able to sound sincere when he apologizes that he "was not there for you then, my child". Apocalypse is a villain, but it just sounds so damn ''comforting'' for him to apologize for something on the level of the Holocaust.
