When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. Written by

In "X2: X-Men United", there is a scene where Mystique is looking at Stryker's computer files. There is a list of mutant names, including a few we will see in later films. However, there is one name that might grab your attention: Kevin MacTaggert (aka: Proteus). This is the mutant son of Moira MacTaggert, played by Rose Byrne in "X-Men: First Class" and "X-Men: Apocalypse", as Professor X's (James McAvoy) love interest. There is a picture of Kevin in Moira's office at the CIA, and when the Professor sees the photo, he asks ncredulously, "You have a son?!" Moira was married and had Kevin with her (villain) husband, Joe MacTaggert, who hated mutants. Since neither are mutants, the gene must be recessive. See more »
In the world destruction scenes, Magneto's helmet appears to be rather metallic blue, but when Apocalypse hands it to him, it is coppery, perhaps burnt orange.In shadow, burnt orange/copper does not turn dark blue. See more »
Mutants: born with extraordinary abilities, and yet still, they are children stumbling in the dark, searching for guidance. A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world.

In what concerns special effects it is the most stunning movie I have ever seen and only for that it is worth to be seen. Scene succeeds scene in hallucinating speed. In a society where humans live together with mutants not always in very friendly terms, the first mutant is awaken after thousands of years (he was worshiped as a god in Ancient Egypt where the movie starts) and seeing that the world is not good he decides to destroy it to create a new society and a new world order above which he would reign. Then a group of young X-Men (boys and girls) start a fight against his purpose in order to save mankind from destruction. This struggle unites humans and also a few mutants who have extraordinary superpowers they use in the amazing scenes above referred. A movie that keeps you rooted to your seat from the first to the last image.
