he doesn't make it,

and you all die.

Or you can

give up this life.

So that they and everyone

else who died in this war

can actually have a future.

You're asking us

to sacrifice our lives

for a future we might not

even be a part of.


A second chance.

A better chance

for everyone.

My people need to vote.

They just did.

They're in.

Okay, spread out.

Take your positions.

So I wake up

in my younger body,

God knows where.

Then what?

You'll need to go to

my house and find me.

Convince me of all of this.

Won't you be able to

just read my mind?

I didn't have my

powers in 1973.

Logan, you're going to have to

do for me what I once did for you.

Lead me, guide me.

I was a very

different man then.

You'll have to be

patient with me.

Patience is my strongest suit.

You'll need me as well.


After Mystique left Charles,

she came with me...

and I set her on

a dangerous path.

A darker path.

It's going to take the two of us,

side by side...

at a time when we couldn't

be further apart.


So where do I find you?

Well, it's complicated.

Are you sure about this?

It's not just his power

that'll be tested.

I've seen what this

can do to you.

I can handle this.

Trust me.

I guess I'll see you

in the next life.

Basically, your

body will go to sleep

while your mind travels

back in time.

As long as you're back there,

past and present will continue to coexist.

But once you wake up...

whatever you've done will take hold

and become history.

And for the rest of us,

it will be the only history

that we know.

It will be like the last

50 years never happened.

And this world,

and this war...

the only person who will

remember it is you.

All right, Logan...

I need you to

clear your head

and to stay

as calm as possible.
