X-Men films are one of the most popular comic-based movies in the film industry. But, some critics claim that most of them have incorrect plots.
X-Men is one of the most popular groups of heroes in the Marvel MCU. Because of this, the giant Marvel Studios decided to make some movies that are based on some of its comics. The most popular one right now is Avengers, which follows the story of how Earth’s mightiest heroes were able to defeat Thanos.
Avengers was able to show the ability of Marvel Studios when it comes to making movies. From Captain America to Avengers, to Avengers: End Game, the giant production house was able to connect them all smoothly and provide a great plot. However, this is not the case for X-Men.
Some critics and other movie analysts claim that X-Men movies have incorrect plots. The reason behind this could be that many of these movies were created a long time ago.
If you are a fan of X-Men, you’ll know that some of its movies are created way back in 2006. They have a bit more to say than the typical comic book fare, showing superheroes fighting bad guys as well as human prejudice and intolerance. Of course, it’s a mixed bag like any long-running franchise.
For how carefully crafted many of them are as individual films, the same can’t be said for their continuity. As the franchise progressed to multiple creative teams, it went in wildly different directions. To help you further, here are some of the most confusing plots of the X-Men movies.
Beast And Mystique
The X-Men: First Class film was where the plot hole floodgates opened. The creators simply didn’t prioritize lining this prequel up with the movies made before it. Among the more bizarre decisions was an impromptu romance between Beast and Mystique.
If you are a fan of Marvel Studios, this film will surely annoy you, especially if you are really looking for a movie with great comic depiction.
From Victor Creed To Sabretooth
Sabretooth was introduced first before Victor. Marvel Studios explained that these two characters are actually the same. However, the film Wolverine, it didn’t explain how Victor actually became Sabretooth.
When Did Charles And Eric Meet?
Charles or Professor X is one of the oldest characters in Marvel movies. Loyal fans of Marvel already know that Charles and Eric or Magneto are long-time friends. However, their friendship was destroyed after Magneto decided to kill their enemy.
Although this is the case, there’s no Marvel film that actually explained how the two came to be friends. In First Class, they’re both in their late 20s or early 30s. Charles is working on his thesis, and Eric is hunting former Nazis. Apparently, the professor can’t even remember how he met his best buddy.
Aside from Charles and Eric’s Connection, Victor’s transformation, and the relationship between Beast and Mystique, there are still some plots that Marvel left unexplained. Here are some of them that you should know;
- Who Created Cerebro?
- Wolverine’s Claws
- Logan’s Entire Setting
- Deadpool Cameo
- Logan And The New Mutants
