X-Men: First Class is the prequel to the X-Men movies is based on a comic, which might explain why it is the best of the X-Men movies (including that Wolverine mess). It tells the stories of what really happened with the Cuban Missile Crises and how super-powered mutants (both good and bad) face off to shape the future of the world. While there are loopholes in how the story fits in with the other movies, like I said, I enjoyed this as it has action and interesting characters. And yet I have to ask (and be aware there are some spoilers here): Did anyone else notice that the only good-guy mutant to die was the black guy? That all the female mutants turned evil? And that the future greatest, evil mutant of all times is Jewish? Just asking.
