X-men: First Class

Synopsis: Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN.

Mother. What are you...

I thought you were a burglar.

I didn't mean to scare you, darling.

I was just getting a snack.

Go back to bed.

What's the matter?

Go on, back to bed.

I'll make you a hot chocolate.

Who are you?

And what have you done with my mother?

My mother has never set foot

in this kitchen in her life.

And she certainly never

made me a hot chocolate.

Unless you count

ordering the maid to do it.

You're not scared of me?

I always believed I couldn't be

the only one in the world.

The only person who was


And here you are.

Charles Xavier.


You're hungry and alone.

Take whatever you want.

We've got lots of food.

You don't have to steal.

In fact,

you never have to steal again.

Understand this, Erik...

These Nazis, I'm not like them.

Genes are the key, yes?

But their goals?

Blue eyes? Blond Hair? Pathetic.

Eat the chocolate.

It's good.

Want some?

I want to see my mama.

Genes are the key that unlocks

the door to a new age, Erik.

A new future for mankind.


You know what I'm talking about?

It's a simple thing I ask of you.

A little coin is nothing

compared to a big gate.

Is it?


I tried, Herr Doctor.

I can't... I don't...

It's impossible.

The one thing I can say for the Nazis is their

methods seem to produce results.

I'm sorry, Erik.


My darling.

How are you?

Here's what we're going to do.

I'm going to count to three...

...and you're going to move the coin.

You don't move the coin, I pull the trigger.




You can do it.


Everything is all right.


Yes. Wonderful.



Outstanding, Erik.

So we unlock your gift with anger.

Anger and pain.

You and me...

...we're going to have a lot of fun together.


A gentleman would at least

offer to buy me a drink first.

Norman, a pint of bitter for me

and a brandy for the lady, please.

- How did you know that?

- Lucky guess.

My name is Xavier. Charles Xavier.

- How do you do?

- Amy.

Heterochromia was

in reference to your eyes,

which I have to say are stunning.

One green, one blue.

It's a mutation.

It's a very groovy mutation.

I've got news for you, Amy.

You are a mutant.

First you proposition a girl,

and then you call her deformed.

How is that seduction technique

working for you?

I'll tell you in the morning.

No, seriously, though,

you mustn't knock it.

Mutation took us

from single-celled organisms

to being the dominant form

of reproductive life on this planet.

Infinite forms of variation

with each generation,

all through mutation.

Then let's reclaim that word.

- Mutant and proud.

- Chin-chin. Hey.

- I guess I have to buy my own drink.

- I'm sorry. One cola.

Charles here was just telling me

that I'm like one of the first

sea creatures that grew legs.

A tiny bit sexier.

I'm sorry. This is my sister, Raven.

- Hi.

- Amy.

- And what do you study?

- Waitressing.

Oh, look, you have heterochromia, too.

- Sorry, what?

- Look at her eye.

Right. Raven, get your coat, please.

Don't talk to me. You did that on purpose.

- I did not! Why would I do it on purpose?

- Yes, you did!

You know I can't control it sometimes

if I'm stressed or tired.

You seem to be doing

a perfectly good job right now.

- "Mutant and proud."

- What?

Or is it only with pretty mutations,

or invisible ones like yours?

But if you're a freak, you better hide.

You're being ridiculous.

I don't mean to sound like an old fart.

- Which you are.

- Sometimes.

But we've talked about this, Raven.

A small slip-up is one thing.

A big one does not bear thinking about.

"Mutant and proud."

"Mutant and proud"?

If only.

- Would you date me?

- Of course I would.

Any young man would be lucky

to have you. You are stunning.

Looking like this?

Like... What?


- You're my oldest friend.

- I'm your only friend.

- Thank you for that.

- Well?

I'm incapable of thinking of you that way.

I feel responsible for you.

Anything else would just feel wrong.

- But what if you didn't know me?

- Unfortunately, I do know you.

I don't know what's gotten into you lately.

You're awfully concerned with your looks.

I'm sleepy. Will you read to me?

I can't. I have my thesis coming up.

I have to study.

Fine, read that.

Your thesis always sends me right off.

"To Homo neanderthalensis,

his mutant cousin, Homo sapiens,

"was an aberration.

"Peaceful cohabitation,

if ever it existed, was short-lived.

"Records show, without exception,

"that the arrival of the mutated

human species in any region

"was followed by the immediate extinction

"of their less-evolved kin."

Possession of that gold is illegal.

I should inform the police.

Let's not play this game.

Where did you get it?

A friend.

He recommended your bank most highly.

I see.

Do you know our terms, sir?


And you should know mine.

This gold is what remains of my people.

Melted from their possessions.

Torn from their teeth.

This is blood money.

And you're going to help me find the

bastards responsible for it.

Don't touch that alarm.

I want Schmidt. Klaus Schmidt.

Where is he?

Our clients don't provide

addresses. We're not...

Not that sort of bank?

Metal fillings, eh?

Not gold.

Worried someone might steal them?

Argentina! Schmidt is in Argentina!

Villa Gesell! Please!

Thank you.

I would love to kill you.

So mark my words.
