The first X-Men movie has a different mansion than the one used in X2 and The Last Stand. First Class and Days of Future Past use a building different to both used in the original trilogy. They are all obviously different.

Is this a continuity problem??

  • It's certainly technically a continuity issue, but is it a problem? What problem would it cause? – phantom42 May 21 '15 at 19:53
  • I just don't understand why it's not seen as a big continuity issue. If you think about, it's worse than professor x coming back. At least there can be an explanation for that – user45978 May 21 '15 at 19:57

    I'd personally be more concerned with continuity problems like the fact that Jubilee is a teenager and a student in both the 80's and the early 2000's, or that Angel and Psylocke don't age in those decades - and have completely different backstories. Those are continuity errors. – phantom42 May 21 '15 at 19:59

    I'd be more concerned about the fact that Rogue completely vanished in the most recent film. And noone in-universe even mentioned it. You'd think they'd all be "where the hell is rogue?" but no. – Valorum May 21 '15 at 20:01

    @PaulD.Waite after the timeline update, yes - but she's absent from the sentinel-filled future scenes. – phantom42 May 21 '15 at 21:00

Not necessarily. Within the comics - specifically the 616 continuity - the mansion located at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Salem Center, NY has been destroyed and rebuilt numerous times.

enter image description here

On many occasions, the mansion that houses the X-Men's famous School for Gifted Youngsters has been entirely demolished, often at the hands of some villain or destructive event. In each case, the mansion is rebuilt. In most cases, the opportunity is taken to expand the mansion itself, thus making room for additional students and facilities.

It's important to note that both the interior and exteriors of the mansion have varied quite a bit over the years. With some rebuilds, great care was taken to replicate the previous appearance, while with other rebuilds the layout and/or style of the mansion was changed drastically. On at least three occasions, the entire mansion was rebuilt but you'd only know it once entering the lower levels - the mansion proper was identical to the previous building.

Note: At one point in continuity, the school was relocated to a different mansion in Snow Valley, Massachusetts. The information in this answer pertains to the Xavier family home, in which Professor X originally started his X-Men team.

  • That's cool to know, thanks. Let's say it was destryoyed after the events of days of future past (70s), why is the interior of the building the same as the 70s in the future. Could that have been because of wolverine changing the past? – user45978 May 21 '15 at 20:02
  • It could be because they decided to decorate it the same. Wolverine doesn't have to have anything to do with it. – phantom42 May 21 '15 at 20:05
