Professor x ordered Cyclop and storm to head toward the north to save the two mutants named Wolverine and Rouge.from the member of the mutant named as Sabretooth.because they were defeated and taken to x-Mansion. So to find them they use Xaviers memory and now they were aware of the pain. To be in safeguard they use to turn on the new machine which will help them to relocate the new mutant by the time Xavier falls into the trap and goes into a coma. Jeson Roy uses Cerebro and finds that the two mutants are in the brotherhood island, forced to use the machine that will destroy the world.

It is time for the X-Men to rise again and fight against the brotherhood during which Mystique was defeated by Wolverine and Toad was killed by Storm. Later the whole team was captured by Magneto’s power as a liberty statue.from them only Wolverine was able to free himself because of his healing power and stab himself to remove the binding. Then Sabertooth got defeated by wolverine, released the rest of them and with the help of his team destroyed the machine.

They were again attacked by police who were tipped by Bobby’s brother but somehow they manage to escape.

Soon after the Alkali lake battle Xaiver and wolverine somehow manage to reach the president’s white house and talk to him who was going to give a speech about the mutant attack. Xavier shares the document to Stryker and warns that human and mutant should work as a team inorder to maintain a peace otherwise they will be destroying each other in the war.

X-Men The Last Stand

Cyclop ignored his duties as a teachand a team leader as he was depressed and Logan took this chance and tried to act as his replacement. On the other side Worthington Labs published the news that the cure for the mutant is ready to use which led Dr. Hank to return to the X mansion and discuss this matter with Xavier. Cyclop left the X mansion and went to the shore of the Alkali lake and in ranger blasted the water and surprisingly it was protected by jean by using the sonic power. She is the old Jean who went undercover after the last fight and returned back with more power.

Xavier was worried about her power and took logans and storm’s company to go to the childhood room to convince her to join their brotherhood where they found that Magneto was also present there to recruit her in their newly formed brotherhood. Due this a battle started where Xavier was killed by Jean and was taken by magneto . After the death there was a great recruitment for a leader so storm took the lead of the X-men and became the headmistress of the Xavier Institute.

Now only the remaining mutants and humans come together and use Shadowcast’s power to change the time back to 1973 to stop Mystique from killing the allies which could lead the whole world to a dark future. Shadow cast’s only power is to send someone back to a month include X-Men and Wolverine. Since Wolverine has a healing power which will help him to survive so he was sent by X-men.

While wolverine was busy changing the past, the X-Men were forced to defend the church where they were hiding from a big sentinel attack so that they could distract them from wolverine while wolverine could complete his task. But since Sentinels were very powerful no X-men can survive except Shadowcat , Professor X and wounded Magneto. Shadowcat cut the connection with wolverine and kept him behind and the future us erased because of the wolverines 1973 act.

X-Men: Apocalypse

It is the night part of the X-Men series which is the sequel of X-Men : Days of Future past. The movie is developed in 1983 setting the plot that shows an Egyptian mutant that rises and tries to capture the world.

It was the first mutant character from Marvel’s X-Men Universe. Around 7 years after the end of the fight a teacher of the university started telling the story about how the mutant saved the white house and the president from the attack of the enemy mutant. On the other hand, En Sababah Nur was finally born after many years. He is an Egyptian mutant who went to sleep for many years but now he is here to rule the whole world. X-Men are here to save the world from him although most of the X-Men and mutants are scattered away for many years because of the sentinels.


Xavier’s aging causes mental instability which results in seizure in the year 2028. This causes him to lose his control over his power and cause an unstable Physical Attack. This attack effect the X-mansion caused the death of 600 people 6, mutants along with many X-men.

Logan and Xaviver disbanded Wolverine by the year 2029. At this point everything was great about Logan maintaining the university as well as X-Mansion.
