Watch over him!

As everyone knows, the existence

of mutants was first discovered

during the Paris Peace Accords

after the Vietnam war in 1973.

6 days later, we all watched

as one of those mutants...

Erik Lehnsherr, attacked the president

and the cabinet

on the lawn of the White House.

Their lives were saved by

a young mutant, who stopped him.

Now, Lehnsherr escaped and became

the world's most wanted fugitive.

And as for her,

she disappeared as well.

But, she has become

the symbol of a new age.

The face of a world

that will never...

- ...be the same again.

- You winking at my girl?

Yes, the world is panicked.

- Your girl.

- ... and there is still some prejudice.

- I guess you do look old enough

- But today,

- to be her father.

- mutants are found in all walks of life.

Excuse me, gentlemen, is there

something that you would like

to be sharing with

the rest of the class?

Can I please go to the bathroom.

I think there's something

seriously wrong with my eyes.

Fine, Scott, and afterward,

why don't you stop by

the principals office and explain to him

that you're disrupting the class again.

I trust you know the way.

- Yeah, I do.

- Okay.


Hang on. Hang on.

Now, I know most of you were what?

Around 7 years old at that time.


I know you're in here.

Are you crying?

I haven't even kick your ass yet.


You want to eyeball my girl?





10 fights.

10 victories.

The Winged Warrior.

The Bird of Prey.

The Angel of Death.



A round of applause for fat boy!

Our next opponent

comes directly

from Circus Munich.

FIGH Ladies and gentlemen.

The one who could face an Angel

is the devil himself!


The amazing,

the fantastic,



High voltage.

Sorry, mutants!


You lost, little girl?

The fight is there.


Or they'll kill us both.

It's getting exciting.

Ah, you mean this.



- Nightcrawler!

- Nightcrawler!

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry!

Come with me.

Hold it!

They went over there!

You can transform.

- You're her, the hero.

- I'm nobody.

I'm not a hero.

Let's get out of here.


Have a good night, Henryk

Same to you, Milosz.

Hi, my love.


Good day?

Better now.

- Where's Nina?

- At the back.

With her friends.

Where did you learn that song, Papa?

I learned it from my parents.

And they learned it from their parents.

And them from theirs.

And one day,

you will sing it to you children too.

What happened to them, your parents?

They were taken from me,

when I was a little boy.

But, they are still here, inside.

And here...

with you.

Is someone going to take you away?


I guess we're more

alike than we thought.

He won't listen to us.

- He just... He's been...

- Scott.

Let me try.




Smells pretty old in here.

Is this a school or museum.

One more, and last one.


Watch where you're going.

I can't...

- What? Who are you talking to?

- Me.

I just heard you in my head.

- I'm telepathic, I read minds.

- Well, stay out of mine.

I don't need some weird girl

creeping around in there.

Don't worry, Scott,

there's not much to see.

Hey, wait.

I didn't tell you my name.

No, you didn't.

Alex Summers?

Hank McCoy!


What happen to the big blue... furry you?

I, keep it under control now.

- This is my brother, Scott.

- Hey, Scott.

I'm Hank McCoy.

I'm one of the teachers here.

Where's the Professor?

... to break forth bloodily, then the past

must be obliterated and a new start made.

Let us now start fresh

without remembrance,

rather than live forward and

backward at the same time.

Now, what are the aggrieve things

that the author meant

when he wrote all that?


That's going to be your

assignment for tomorrow.

Top marks, everyone.

Class dismiss.

- Alex, it's good to see you.

- Yeah, you too.

You look... well.

It's been a while.

It has.

You're not too bad yourself.

Thank you.

This is my brother, Scott.

Hello, Scott.

Welcome to the school for the gifted.


It doesn't exactly feel like a gift.

It never does, not at first.

The first step in understanding

one's power is learning the extent of it.

Only then, can we begin the process

of teaching you how to control it.

If you do decide to stay,

I can promise you that by

the time you are done here

you'll be able to go back into the world

and play a stable productive partner.

Why don't you take your bandages off

and we can have a look

at what we're dealing with here.

Alex, would you line him up.

Face him in the right direction if you will.

There's a target just across the water.

When you open your eyes,

try and hit that.

You can open your eyes, Scott.

There's nothing to be afraid of.

It's quite...

Get back!

Get back.

Get back.


My grandfather planted that tree

when he was 5 years old.

I used to swing from

the branches then myself.

I think that was probably

my favourite tree.

- Does that mean I'm expel?

- On the contrary.

You're enrolled.

Do you sell carpets?

You cannot come in here.

The carpet is for sale?

I said...


Back to bed, please, my darling.

- Back to bed.

- She's doing it again.

Back to bed, please, everyone.

Jessie, back to bed, please.

Come on, now.

Spitzbolt, back to bed.
