Same timeline, different helmets. The events of First Class and Apocalypse are in the same timeline / universe. There is no contradiction here. After the events of Days of Future Past, Magneto gives up his mutant life and the Magneto persona to raise a family in Poland and work an honest job. We don't know exactly what happened to his first helmet in ...

I would like to give more context regarding why exactly the snitch would be so eager to come out with his knowledge of his workmate's superpowers. At that moment of the movie (1983), the action's set in Polish People's Republic, time of great political turmoil - sort of Sturm und Drang moment. Workplaces were being infiltrated by intelligence and secret ...

It seems likely that the person who "snitched" on Magneto was this guy who saw him extend his hand and then look around suspiciously. As to what motivated him to talk to the police, we can't really say but the general consensus seems to be that Magneto is a vicious murderer and would-be assassin of world leaders rather than a misunderstood advocate for ...

As stated by Jontia, yes, Nina is a mutant. While this is never explicitly states it seems clear enough from the film that she has the ability to communicate and control animals. She calls upon a flock of birds to attack the police officers before she is killed. Police Officer: What's happening? She is one of them. [...] Police Officer: Make her stop. Erik: ...

We actually see at least five different helmet designs within the x-men-cinematic-universe, including at least two physically different helmets. Chronologically, the first one he has is the one he takes from Shaw in X-Men: First Class. Shaw received the helmet from the Russians. At the end of the movie, he has repainted it, and added some flair. (Note: I ...

The official marketing material confirms this. Directly from the movie's official website: Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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. In-movie, it is believed that he was the first ...

This has direct reference to the sequel, which will have the Dark Phoenix Saga, as confirmed by Simon Kinberg here. Also during an interview, the director Bryan Singer exclaimed the possibilities to use the "big alien, interstellar tenant within the X-Men universe that has not been explored." Now from what some of us might be knowing from the DPS is that ...

TL;DR: En Sabah Nur was born with the ability to alter his body on a cellular level. Earth-616 In the comics, the being later known as Apocalypse was born with a single mutant power - to control his body on a cellular level. Once he learned to control this ability, however, it granted him a variety of useful abilities: Near-instant healing Limited shape-...

While X-men: Apocalypse does not reveal the origin of the armor Apocalypse wears, it is presumed to be the same exotic device worn by the comic version of the character. The suit is a device created by the Celestials. It has no official name or designation and has been dubbed the "Apocalypse Armor". According to an interview with CBR, Rick Remender,...

All heat is a form of energy, but not all energy is heat. Heat, as we know it, is just energy in the infra-red portion of the light/energy spectrum. We get too much sun, our skin gets damaged and we get radiation "burns" from the ultra-violet, but they aren't heat burns. Often, a material will absorb the energy on one wavelength and emit back energy on ...

I partially disagree with KutuluMike on the timing of certain events, so I will describe my own analysis as follows. WARNING: STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE MOVIE. 100% SPOILER REVEAL AHEAD. Due to timezone differences, we will discuss this in phases: The timing in relation to each other is approximated because I am making sense of the events at ...

Traditionally, Apocalypse has displayed various amounts of telepathy in the comic books, although he doesn't seem to be especially skilled in it in the film: he doesn't detect that his servants are about to betray him in the pyramid at the beginning; during battles, he can't seem to predict his opponents' actions. He does, as you say, display an ability to ...

You've fundamentally misunderstood his plan. Apocalypse' goal isn't to destroy humanity or cleanse the Earth of life. His primary aim is to return humanity to a state of bronze-aged barbarism so that he can rule them as he did when he was in Egypt. Apocalypse: ... I was there to spark and fan the flame of man's awakening, to spin the wheel of civilization....

Depends on how scientific you want to be. Admittedly, I haven't seen the movie yet, so there may be a factor I've missed, but: Most likely, the weapons will eventually crash back down to Earth. This is due to the fact that, as seen in an answer to this question from Space Exploration, Given that breaking free of Earth's gravity, which would be ...

Quicksilver appears to have eaten the pizza. Presumably all that running around is quite hard work and therefore requires a lot of energy. You may wish to note that a few (nano)seconds earlier he'd also helped himself to a caffeinated soft drink.

They do appear to be Sentinels. Visually, they appear to match the 1973 design that the X-Men encountered in Washington DC. (Since they're in shadow, they may have slightly changed.) Unclear: whether or not they're actually Sentinels. At the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, the X-Men appear to be in the Danger Room. In both the comics and the movies, the Danger ...

We have no knowledge of the full extent of X-Men: Apocalypse's En Sabah Nur's abilities. Since he has gathered and transferred the mutant abilities of dozens of mutants in the past, we cannot be certain even complete physical destruction of his body meant the destruction of his incredibly powerful mind. If the comic version of the character is any indication,...

As mentioned in the earlier post, Mystique's powers are intentionally nebulous, allowing writers to use her abilities to create the result they need. If she needs to break a chain, she can emulate Wolverine's claws. They won't be adamantium, but any good, strong metal should be able to do the job. If she can emulate metals, she should be able to break said ...

Are Anya and Nina the same person? No They can't be the same person, they're from different Universes. Is Nina Gurzsky the Earth-TRN414 version of Anya Lehnsherr? Yes. They are both the daughter of Magneto in their respective universes. However, Anya died at a young age and has no known mutant powers, unlike Nina, who seems to have the ability to communicate ...

Yes. Nina Gurzsky was shot and killed in the forest by police. She was a mutant and displayed the ability to communicate/control animals in the X-Men : Apocalypse film.

It looked like the beam hit the engine of the jet that Beast was showing off earlier (as seen in the trailers, and shown below). MoviePilot's spoiler-filled review/plot synopsis says that the X-Jet is nuclear powered, and confirms it is what fuelled the explosion.

The soul- or power-napping version of Apocalypse is a creation of Hollywood. It makes his power description easy enough for the average viewer to understand, and makes it clear that he has a head start of a few thousand years over any mutant in the series. It may also be hyperbole on his part, to keep anyone from recognizing that his abilities may have ...

Xavier quotes a few lines: XAVIER: ... to break forth bloodily, then the past must be obliterated and a new start made. [...] XAVIER: Let us now start fresh without remembrance, rather than live forward and backward at the same time. The original passage: The blessing of forgetfulness: that was the first essential. If everything one did, or which one's ...

No. In X-Men: Apocalypse, the mutant En Sabah Nur is not telepathic. He is, however, telepathically receptive and has an incredibly powerful mind. So powerful, in fact, he is able to utilize a telepath's abilities to alter their perceptions of their telepathic state, appearing to have telepathic abilities of his own. Comic versions of the character indicate ...

The Darwinian 'Survival of the Fittest' doesn't mean the most powerful, more the most suitable. Being the giraffe with the longest neck isn't an advantage unless it lets you breed and pass on your genes better or more successfully. If all your energy has gone into growing a neck, you'll be outbred by your cousin with the most suitable length neck, and ...

Apocalypse's name is En Sabah Nur which is Arabic for "the Morning Light". From the wikipedia page : Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Apocalypse was abandoned by his family because of his appearance, so we can assume he had no name until Baal rescued him ...

Based solely on the progression of Magneto's storyline, I think we can safely assume it takes more than one day. There's also a few places where I suspect we're supposed to mentally insert "the next day..." into a scene. As a gut feeling I would say 3 days, though there are not very many clues. Magneto's story definitely takes place over the course of at ...

Because of Logan's interference in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the original X-Men timeline has been completely changed. That means that pretty much everything that happens in X-Men Origins: Wolverine after Logan meets Stryker no longer happened the way it was shown in that movie. In Days of Future Past, which takes places in the 1970's, Logan's is left ...

Bustle explains: Well, in the second act of the film, Apocalypse kidnaps Charles. Intrigued by his powers of telepathy and mind control — powers that Apocalypse somehow does not yet possess — Apocalypse decides he's going to transfer his consciousness and long list of powers into Charles' body. The body transfer process is how Apocalypse has ...
