"Hero. Villain. Mutant. Human. Words that have often been used in the long-storied history of Marvel’s X-Men franchise give insight into the struggle for acceptance. For the X-Men themselves, they have given us such memorable characters as Wolverine, Phoenix, Cyclops, Storm and Rogue though none more so than Professor X and Magneto. To understand the future, one must understand the past and the history of the series has been brought to life by X-Men: First Class."
