Nineteen years after it all began, and helped us launch the early waves of the superhero cinema's dominance we see today, is Foxs X-Men saga at the end with the release of Dark Phoenix . It may have gone into a damp splash instead of a real fire, but it now means that we have a complete and complete batshit, event chain to break down.
The tale X-Men is made not only with its topsy turvy release scheme, a soft-started halfway by moving us back to a series of prequels but also by the presence of X-Men: Days of Future Past to break down the actual chronological order of these films an exercise in fierce frustration. We did it anyway, for hey, that's what we do! So if you want to know how the whole X-Saga went down, from X-Men to Dark Phoenix and beyond? Here is our guide.
Two timelines, both equal in dignity
Complete information goes in: we have some alternative timeline games. Two distinct film stories – the original three films X-Men directed by Bryan Singer, and then the four "reboot" films beginning with X-Men: First Class events in Days of Future Past creates a timeline of events where the original X movies happened, and a second there First Class story happens … mostly. Pieces of them technically happen in both! You will see …
Timeline A: Initially it was Wolverine
Technically, it was Apocalypse: A Sabah Nurs backstory emergence and fall of X-Men: Apocalypse as one of the ancient world's most powerful rulers and the first-born of the mutant war takes place about 8,000 BC . He is destroyed and imprisoned by his former supporters in 3,600 BC. but we must forget him for a while. We really begin with X-Men Origins: Wolverine who in this [timeline] at least does not come up again. charts Logan's long history. In 1845 James Howletts activates the mutant gene as he witnesses the death of the man he thought was his father, just because the young James accidentally killed his father Thomas Logan in the following moments. James and his half-brother, Victor Creed-who will eventually become known as the mutant villain Sabertooth-then spend the next century and struggle in various wars, survive their iniquities due to their regenerative mutant abilities. James will of course eventually become known as Wolverine. We arrive at it!
At the same time, in 1944 Erik Lensherr (possibly Magneto), a young Jewish boy imprisoned in the concentration camp Auschwitz begins to manifest their own powers. Experimented by the unyielding leader of the Hellfire Club, Sebastian Shaw, Erik finally escapes and spends the next two decades looking for every Nazi, he can find and kill them for their scary role in the Holocaust. In … brighter events? The young Charles Xavier meets Shapeshifting Mutant Raven Darkholme for the first time and invites her to live with her family in the Westchester Manor.
We can now continue for two decades to 1962 when most X-Men: First Class take place. Moira McTaggert reveals the existence of the Hellfire Club and mutants in general; Charles, Raven and Erik made up for Shaw; and X-Menna were born after Charles uses a prototype version of the Cerebro helmet to locate and recruit a team of similar young mutants. He and Erik also try to recruit Logan / Wolverine at this time and fail. X-Men battle Shaw and the club in Cuba, and while they succeed, it comes at great expense: Xavier is paralyzed and Lensherr, who now acts as Magneto, master of magnetism, takes Raven as well as Angel, Riptide and Azazel
Now, buckle up, for things are about to get really strange. Seeds from a timeline split begin to germinate after the events of X-Men: First Class in the sequel to its sequel, Days of Future Past (which was probably not a good move for the franchise).
1963 Magneto is falsely accused of murdering President Kennedy, while a few years later Xavier formally opens his school of "Gifted Youngsters" …. just for most of these youths to be signed up for the Vietnam War in 1970 budding Charles to despair. Also, we're back in Origins too little, because James Howlett also beats in Vietnam before he and Victor are recruited to join a secret Mutant Black Ops squad by William Stryker, known as Team X. James takes take on a new name and code name here and borrow his true dad's name to become Logan and earn his Wolverine moniker but ends Team X after several years of service, when Stryger's casual ignorance for life and the group's violent mission begins to weigh on him. But let's forget it for now …
We come in a weird place.
The Split: Movies of Future Past
A divergence occurs in 1973 when the Raven-going of her alter ego Mystique killer Bolivar Trask in Days of Future Past s dystopian version of the timeline. Trask, head of Trask Industries, tried to get the US government to use its giant robot program, Sentinels, to hunt and contain mutant child. His death, which takes place in one of the "reboot" of your films, is what actually leads to the continuation of what we refer to as Timeline A … which are the original X-Men films. We come to the split eventually, but for now, let's continue the events outside the timeline A.
X-Menna who released the attack, including Colossus, Wolverine, Rogue, Iceman and Pyro, were forced to cooperate with Magneto and Mystique to stop Stryker and his son from brainwashing Xavier to use another Cerebro to kill every mutant on the planet with a mental command. During the rescue service, Magneto decides to be a room cavity and Jason has convinced Charles to use Cerebro 2 to kill every human instead of taking off and leaving the X-Menna to handle his mess. Shit up! Nightcrawler and Storm-free Xavier from Jason's control before being able to use Cerebro 2, and the X-Menna escaping Strike's base when flooded by a nearby pond damaged in battle.
You, mostly. Stryker drowns and Jean Gray sacrifices himself to save the X-Men and hold back the tide and drop into a strange, fiery new force in the process. Everyone is sad to 2006 when the events of X-Men: The Last Stand occur. And then everyone in the real world is boring because the events of X-Men: The Last Stand a horrible movie occurs. Jean is reborn as the evil, omnipotent Phoenix force, just as the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants enter into another scrap – this time over the evolution of an assumed cure for the mutant gene, with Magneto believing it will be used to severely eradicate mutants.
Everyone realizes that fighting over it while a giant fiery psychic goddess of tremendous power threatens to destroy the whole planet is a bad idea, and they are able to stop Phoenix. Wolverine is forced to kill Jean and is sad, even if mutants get equality in the wake of, you know, save the world and all that. Oh, and past, Xavier is killed by Phoenix before her death, but don't worry, he gets better at the end of the movie. As I said, it's bad!
Anyway, it's good too little. In 2013 Wolverine lives as a hermit, traumatized by the fact that he must kill Jean, but is engaged in a new adventure in Japan where he turns up Silver Samurai during the events of The Wolverine . Things are getting freaky again when he returns to the US and finds that Xavier not only lives in any way, but he and Magneto work together for a serious new threat to mutant child. Since this is all that begins Days of Future Past starts playing again: it's bad for mutants (again), with Trask Industries fully developing Sentinels as the perfect mutant hunting device.
