Mutants. Since the discovery
of their existence,
they have been regarded
with fear, suspicion, often hatred.
Across the planet debate rages.
Are mutants the next link
in the evolutionary chain?
Or simply a new species of humanity,
fighting for their share of the world?
Either way, it is an historical fact
sharing the world has never been
humanity's defining attribute.
"We are not enemies, but friends.
We must not be enemies."
"Though passion may have strained,
it must not break the bonds of our affection."
Lincoln said that in his first inaugural
address as our nation's 16th president.
It's one of my favourites.
If you'll please have your tickets ready,
we can begin the tour.
Jackie, clear my schedule.
I'm having dinner with my son.
Yes, Mr President.
Excuse me, sir. Are you lost?
Perimeter breach at visitors' checkpoint.
Mr President, security breach.
Jackie, leave. Get him to the car.
Exits not clear. Unknown how many.
Both sides secure.
- Something's in the corridor.
- To the shelter.
- It's outside the Oval Office.
- Lock this place down.
Neanderthals. We once believed that
they were wiped out by years of conflict
with the much more advanced branch
of humanity called Cro-Magnon man,
but recent research into our DNA suggests
that these two species may have interbred,
evolving into modern humans.
In other words, into what?
- That's right.
Come on. Pay attention.
...makes me insane when she does this...
What are you looking at? Sick...
To the shelter.
They're gonna kill him.
Jean? You OK?
Yeah, I'm fine.
It's just a headache.
It's not just a headache, is it?
I wasn't sure how to say this,
but since Liberty Island you've been...
- You've been different.
My telepathy's been off lately.
I can't focus. I hear everything.
Jean, it's not just your telepathy. A month ago
you had to concentrate just to levitate a book.
Now when you have a nightmare
I keep feeling
something terrible's about to happen.
I would never let anything happen to you.
Have you guys seen Bobby and Rogue?
Something's happening in the food court.
- It's a simple question.
- Why are you being a dick?
Yeah, why are you being such a dick?
Because I can.
Can I have a light?
- Sorry. Can't help you out, pal.
- John, knock it off.
- Why don't you stop showing off?
- For her?
- I can't help it if your girl's getting excited.
- She isn't.
- We're trying to have a good time.
- You're the only one having a good time.
That's real cute, man.
What are you gonna do?
Suddenly you're not so tough.
Bobby, what did you do?
I didn't do this.
No. I did.
And the next time
you feel like showing off, don't.
- Breaking news.
- We're live from Washington,
where there's been an attack
in the Oval Office of the White House.
We have been informed that the president
and vice president were not harmed.
Sources say the attack involved
one or more mutants...
- I think it's time to leave, Professor.
- I think you're right.
- In my opinion, Magneto's behind this.
- I don't think so, Scott.
While Eric could organise
something like this from prison,
it would be irrational
and only hurt his goal of mutant prosperity.
- You mean superiority.
- You're right, if Eric had his way.
And, of course, the government
will reintroduce the Registration Act.
The president could declare a state of
emergency, place every mutant under arrest.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
