Back in August, we announced some exciting details on the plot of X-Men: First Class!
Now, it looks like the X-Men MAY have their villain!
Here's a hint at the bad guy from a plot summary for the film:
"Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and 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. Not arch-enemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men."
Armageddon could def be the villain, as there have been two characters in the Marvel Universe that have gone by that name. They are…
- An artificially-created offspring of Apocalypse
- Ruler of alien "Troyjan empire"/antagonist for The Hulk
The name Armageddon could, of course, also refer to
the Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck movie an event that could potentially end the world…if the X-Men don't stop it.
Hopefully we'll learn more soon. We're just excited to hear updates! We're pumped for this one!
What do U think Armageddon refers to here? Offspring? Alien Emperor? End Of The World?
