Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The second movie in the X-Men Film Series after X-Men, X2: X-Men United (sometimes promoted as just X2) involves mutants who are being mind-controlled somehow, starting with Nightcrawler attempting to assassinate the President; government operatives then kidnap Cyclops and Professor X.The X-Men investigate and find out that the two are related: the soldiers are under the command of Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who is using a mutant to project false images into other mutants' minds. By brain-washing Professor X into overpowering the "Cerebro" telepathy machine, he intends to kill all currently-living mutants. Magneto and his Brotherhood Of Mutants ally with the X-Men to stop this from happening (hence the subtitle of the movie: "X2: X-Men United"). Meanwhile, Wolverine delves into his past involvement with the "Weapon X" project, which (of course) Stryker was in charge of.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Not to be confused with the series of sci-fi videogames by the name X, whose second entry is entitled X2.Followed by X-Men: The Last Stand.

Beneath Notice: Mystique disguises herself as a janitor. In fairness, it was the building's actual janitor. People could have easily mistaken her for the janitor they knew, although it does cause the real one to do a Double Take when he sees her.

Creator Cameo: Both director Bryan Singer and cinematographer Newton Thomas Siegel appear as guards in Magneto's prison. Singer gets his own pic, uniform and all, while the rest are given stock male photos. He also wheels the professor into the cell. The other security guards for Magneto's prison are all named after production staff. Screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris also appear as surgeons on Wolverine's flashback.

comment
Psychic Radar: It's already been seen in the previous film that Cerebro amplifies Xavier's powers to give him greater range and accuracy. Here he uses it to allow him to track even a mutant who can teleport and it's further revealed that he can use it to sense the location of every mutant or every human on the planet. Concentrating hard enough will give them all a really serious Psychic Nosebleed... followed by death.

comment
Brainwashed and Crazy: Done to Nightcrawler with a mind-control serum in to make him kill/try to kill the President (it's not clear if he was meant to succeed or die in the attempt). He snaps out of it and escapes when a bodyguard shoots him. This is also done to Cyclops later in the movie and had already been done to Deathstryke. Also Charles Xavier, by William Stryker's mutant son Jason, who is himself Lobotomized and Crazy.

Reality Ensues: During a critical scene, Rogue attempts a Big Damn Heroes moment by arriving with the X-Jet to save her friends. Unfortunately, Rogue is an inexperienced teenager, and the X-Jet is one of the most advanced aircraft on the planet. She barely manages to land without crashing, and is shown shaking and breathing heavily from the panic after doing so. She's also unable to take her hands off the controls until Storm arrives to comfort her and calm her down.

Mythology Gag After Magneto saves the Blackbird from crashing, he snarks "When will these people learn how to fly?", referencing the fact that several of the X-Men are capable of unaided flight in the comics. Magneto floats in the middle of a circle, a device meant to kill all mutants, and changes it: now, instead of targeting all mutants, it will be used against everybody else. There was a similar scene in the first arc of Ultimate X-Men, in 2001.

The Schlub Pub Seduction Deduction: Mystique and a prison guard. Sure, she drugged and injected him with iron, so that Magneto could rip it from his blood and escape, but he got to make out with Rebecca Romijn. Lucky bastard. This trope is basically lampshaded when Magneto tells the guard that he should never trust a beautiful woman — especially one who's interested in him.

False Flag Operation: The opening of the movie has Nightcrawler jump several federal agents and attempt to attack the president of the United States on the premise of "Mutant Freedom Now!" (which is written on a strip tied to a knife he leaves behind when he escapes). In reality this is the work of Stryker's mind control in an effort to incite anti-mutant sentiment.

Bed Trick: Mystique shape shifts into Jean Grey in an attempt to sleep with Logan. One could probably say it was subverted, since Logan found out pretty much in the first minute when he felt a scar he previously had left on Mystique. The novelization claims he identified her by scent before she even entered his tent, but he played along until he got bored/annoyed/angry, it's not especially clear which.

Throwing Out the Script: The President discusses his speech as he walks down a hall with some staffers, then his speech is in the teleprompter, and he's going live when Professor X and the rest of the X-Men pay him a visit and provide him with documents from Col. Stryker's office. The X-Men leave, time resumes for the staffers, and the President touches the file on his desk and begins to improvise...

Blatant Lies: Bobby Drake presents Wolverine to his parents (who think he's been attending a normal prep school) as "Professor Logan." This in itself is borderline, but when the Drakes ask Wolverine what he teaches, he replies tersely, "Art." The trailers for the film played this to maximum effect by intercutting the question and the response with a shot of Logan, claws extended, screaming and leaping towards the camera. Also on the part of the trigger-happy cops who claim they don't want to hurt the mutants right after shooting Wolverine in the head.

Bait the Dog: Magneto and the Brotherhood team up with the X-Men in an Enemy Mine battle against a racist, genocidal military colonel. Magneto's more or less leading a rescue mission to save Professor Xavier, and the two teams fight together so well (the movie's even subtitled "X-Men United") that you can't help but cheer him on and start to wonder if, all things considered, he's really such a bad guy. And then he proceeds to remind the audience that yes, he really is a villain, when instead of rescuing him, he tries to use the captive, brainwashed Xavier to kill every non-mutant on Earth.

Sealed Evil in a Can: Stryker has Magneto locked up in a plastic prison, where without his powers he's a defenseless, elderly man. One guard takes advantage of this to physically abuse him at every opportunity. As the saying goes, "you can catch the devil, but you can't hold him long." At some point in their worst nightmares, the guards must have considered what was going to happen if Magneto got access to any amount of iron. Magneto's Roaring Rampage of Revenge when that very thing happened demonstrated that mercy from him wasn't on the table...

Badass Teacher: At the end of X-Men, Magneto asks Xavier what happens when someone finds out about his mutant school, and Xavier replies that he has a great deal of pity for anyone who comes to the school looking for trouble. In this movie, he's proven right, when Wolverine kills a lot of black ops soldiers very efficiently and violently, plus Colossus hits a couple. Although Professor X was probably referring to himself, since Stryker's forces only attacked when they knew that Xavier wasn't there, having incapacitated him first. Xavier also claims that if he wanted to, he could make Wolverine spend the rest of his life believing he was a "six-year-old girl with pigtails," simply for ignoring his rules about no smoking in the mansion! He was joking that time, but imagine the carnage Xavier could cause if he ever got downright furious?! note Look up Onslaught.

Conveniently Coherent Thoughts: Played with somewhat, when Jean Grey starts to lose control of her psychic abilities. Apparently she can usually tune out the garbage and focus on the particular thoughts she's looking for, but when her powers start to malfunction, she hears every thought of every person in the very crowded museum she's in. This gives her a headache, which causes her to involuntarily short out all the TV screens around her.

Catchphrase Interruptus: Nightcrawler repeatedly tries to introduce himself to people by saying "My name is Kurt Wagner, but in the Munich Circus I was known as the Incredible Nightcrawler," but always gets cut off before he can finish.

Instant Sedation
 X2: X-Men United / int_5bdf025f
comment
Instant Sedation: The military guys use Instant Sedation darts on the students when they invade the school. While they knock out the children instantly, Cyclops was protected by the armour under his clothing and multiple darts fail to have any effect on Wolverine. Justified by his larger body mass, Healing Factor, and adrenaline as well, since he doesn't show any effects while killing the immediate threat. After all the enemies in his vicinity are neutralized, he pulls the darts out and shakes his head, indicating he was becoming at least a little woozy or disoriented. Removing the source of the sedative lets his healing eliminate the rest of it in his body. Mystique's drugged beer also takes effect the second Mr. Laurio downs the last of it, where the pills have settled.

Heroic Sacrifice: Jean Grey. When the Blackbird is frozen at Alkali Lake with the dam about to burst in mere minutes, she steps off the jet and uses her now heightened telekinesis to break the ice and allow the jet to lift off, at the same time psychically restraining her teammates to keep them from stopping her. She frees the jet seconds before she is seemingly crushed beneath tons of rushing water.

Trouble Magnet Gambit: Mystique puts a syringe filled with iron in solution into an off-duty guard's butt. How bad this would be for him in the long term is unknown considering that he seems only a little bit under the weather the next day but he's also hung over and recovering from some kind of drug. But long-term effects don't really matter because Magneto uses the extra iron in the guard's blood to escape, killing the guard and that's definitely fatal.

Artistic License – Military: During the dogfight scene, the Air Force F-16 pilots order the X-Men to divert their plane to Hanscom Air Force Base. Hanscom Air Force Base is a non-flying base that doesn't have a runway. Planes use nearby Hanscom Field, which is a civilian air port. Plus, the military pilots fire their missiles at the X-Men's plane. Military pilots cannot fire their weapons over the territory of the United States without express permission from the President. This happens so often in fiction it practically deserves its own separate trope.

comment
Coming-Out Story: Referenced when Mrs. Drake asks her son Bobby, "Have you tried... NOT being a mutant?" Bobby's mother is played as the main "mutant-phobe" in this scene, saying things to Bobby that are now probably thought of as cliché—telling Bobby that the family still loves him, asking him when he first knew he was a mutant, referring to her son's gifts as "this [complicated] mutant problem" (to which Logan defensively replies, "What mutant problem?"), and basically being extremely uncomfortable with Bobby's confession. All in all, if you replace "mutant" with "homosexual" in the context of this scene, it still makes sense. This concept has now spawned its own trope. See also Gay Aesop below.

Shapeshifting Squick: Mystique seduces Wolverine. He's fairly surprised when she mimics Storm, a little conflicted at Jean Grey's appearance, but profoundly creeped out when he sees her shapeshift into Rogue (essentially a movie version of his traditional underage female sidekick). Turning into Brian "Original Lecter" Cox was just icing on the cake.

Idiot Ball: Rogue attempting to fly the Jet, without any training in its operation, simply because she was getting impatient. It predictably crashes only a few seconds after take-off and ends up being damaged, forcing Jean to sacrifice herself. Earlier, Xavier has a minor but understandable one. He notices that Deathstryke is starting to regain control. He's smart enough not to say anything, but the fact that he keeps glancing over to her alerts Strkyer, allowing him to give her another dose of serum to keep her obedient. The fight at Bobby's house is one for the cops. There have to be half a dozen of them, and despite the fact that they have their weapons in hand and trained at the mutants, none of them open fire on Pyro once he starts slinging fire around. This when they had already demonstrated willingness to use deadly force (on Wolverine, so it doesn't count, but they didn't know that).

Double Standard: Rape, Sci-Fi: Mystique attempts to do this to Wolverine by shifting to look like Jean. She's on top of him and they're shedding clothes before he realizes who she truly is. Plays on All Men Are Perverts when she proceeds to turn herself into Storm and Rogue, suggesting one of them might be what he "really wants." It's not quite so bad in the novelization, when Wolverine knows it's Mystique the entire time but chooses to play along for a while.

Gay Aesop: When Bobby "comes out" to his parents and his brother as a mutant, his mother asks "Have you tried... NOT being a mutant?", despite the fact that Bobby did no harm to anyone, merely freezing a cup of coffee to show them his powers (his brother also calls the police and claims that Bobby and several other mutants are holding his family hostage). Shares a similar parallel with homosexuals in which they do nothing to actually deserve discrimination, but the public perception of them is what drives their reputation. Logan, who is watching the situation unfold, also takes offense as Bobby's family (unaware that Bobby isn't the only mutant in the room) unjustly discriminates against his kind.

When discussing the mutant gene, Pyro says that it is passed on by males. If the gene was on the Y chromosome, then there would be no female mutants. Then again, no one states the mutant gene is specifically in the Y chromosome. John isn't exactly studious, though, so this can be Hand Waved as him making up a lie just to irritate Mr. Drake.

Downplayed in that he is visibly traumatized when Pyro starts murdering the cops he had called, his family life will never be the same now that he's betrayed his brother, and he obviously was among the people who were tortured and potentially killed when Magneto modified the Dark Cerebro. Magneto and Mystique get away scot-free after the attempt to Kill All Humans, with Pyro in tow.

And I Must Scream: Stryker's mind control serum makes the victim obedient, but their real self is still in there, fully aware and incapable of controlling their own body. Look at the sheer horror on Deathstrike's face when the serum controlling her briefly wears off. Particularly when she looks at her hands and remembers the pain of being bonded with adamantium, likely because she was being controlled during that, as well. Scott similarly tells Jean he couldn't stop himself from trying to kill her. Or the way Magneto painfully tells Charles that Striker made Magneto tell him "everything" about Charles and the school.

Super Strength: Lady Deathstryke has both this and Super Toughness, taking one of Cyclops optic blasts which knocked out the guard standing next to her before knocking him out with one kick, punching Wolverine across room, hammer-tossing the 6-feet, well-muscled and metal skeletoned mutant with enough force to crack concrete and one-handedly tossing him higher than 10 feet. Especially significant when you consider she has an adamantium skeleton as well.

No-Sell: Magneto performs a No Sell of his own, thanks to his telepathy-blocking helmet: while the mind-controlled Xavier is attacking the mutants of the world with his powers, Magneto is completely immune to the psychic attack that has literally every other mutant on Earth writhing on the ground in agony. For good measure, once he's managed to temporarily disable Cerebro and stop the attack, he finds himself face to face with Jason, who makes one final attempt at telepathically attacking him- to no avail; cue horrified stare from Jason, as Magneto smugly taps the side of his helmet by way of explanation. Lady Deathstrike shoots Cyclops with a sedative dart gun, however, his X-Men uniform and thick coat shield him from it.

Alas, Poor Villain: Halfway through her death scene, the mind-control serum wears off and Deathstrike is allowed a few tragic seconds of clarity to realize where she is and what's happened to her; the look on her face says it all. Just before getting out of the second Cerebro, Xavier looks sadly at the lobotomised Jason, clearly regretting the way the boy ended up.

Oh, Crap!: "I used to think you were one of a kind, Wolverine. I was wrong." Followed by another one after he realises Deathstrike also shares his Healing Factor. Magneto and Mystique have the smiles wiped right off their faces when Rogue, furious at their teasing about the white stripes in her hair (which they are directly responsible for) gives them a Death Glare as she starts to pull a glove off. Jason, who's spent the entire movie playing Xavier like a fiddle, has a moment of panic when Magneto proves immune to his illusions.

Abusive Parents: William Stryker lobotomized his mutant son Jason and reduced him to a wheelchair-bound source of mind control serum. He even stops referring to his son by name, calling him "Mutant 143." Xavier is horrified that William would do this to his own son, but William claims that his son is already dead, just like the rest of mutantkind.

Have You Tried Not Being a Monster?: Trope Namer. Bobby Drake's parents find out that he's a mutant and have pretty much exactly this reaction, complete with his mother asking him if he’s tried "not being a mutant?" The filmmakers consulted Ian McKellen for the scene due to his experience being gay during much less forgiving times. This pops up a second time. When Nightcrawler asks Mystique why she doesn't use her shapeshifting powers to blend in with normal humans, she replies, "Because we shouldn't have to."

He was experimented on by his father, a mutant-phobe, and turned into a living Lotus-Eater Machine in a wheelchair in contrast to Charles Xavier, who is with the good guys. While Jason's condition is portrayed sympathetically, but his appearance is definitely intended to be creepy, and both his past actions and some of his present demeanor are definitely evil.

Only the latter is present in the sequel, as she manages to disable Cyclops' eye beam during their reunion.

Shout Out: Mystique scrolls through a list of mutants on a computer, searching for Magneto. All of those names are from the comics. While all of those names were in a single folder, Franklin Richards had a folder all his own. Both Magneto and the Professor reference The Once and Future King at separate points. Erik is seen reading it in his cell at the beginning, and Charles ends the film telling some of his students about it.

Artistic Licence Biology: When discussing the mutant gene, Pyro says that it is passed on by males. If the gene was on the Y chromosome, then there would be no female mutants. Then again, no one states the mutant gene is specifically in the Y chromosome. John isn't exactly studious, though, so this can be Hand Waved as him making up a lie just to irritate Mr. Drake. The iron injected into the prison guard wouldn't have gone unnoticed, least of all by the guard himself. Iron infusions have a high risk of anaphylactic shock, so the amount of iron Mystique injects should have produced near instant symptoms, followed by death. Also, the body tends to bind iron with other substances in the body, and once that happens, it becomes so unmagnetic that if Magneto was powerful enough to remove it, he wouldn't actually need it as the plastic of his prison would be more magnetic.

You Can't Go Home Again: After Stryker's raid on the school, Bobby, Rogue, Logan and Pyro stop by the Drake family house in hopes of regrouping, which in the process reveals Bobby's mutant abilities to his parents. His own brother calls the police and reports them as a threat despite the mutants not harbouring any ill intentions. After Pyro stupidly attacks the officers in the standoff that follows, Bobby is forced to flee with the others knowing he can never come back.

Elaborate Underground Base: The underground base becomes a plot element when the Spy Satellites actually detect the Cool Ship in its hangar underneath the Mutant Academy. William Stryker uses this evidence to convince the President to okay a commando strike on the school, secretly to further his plan to wipe out all mutantkind. Stryker's also got an Elaborate Underground Base of his own.

Crushing Handshake: Iceman does this to Wolverine by freezing the older mutant's hand when Rogue introduces them. Bobby is aware that Rogue has a crush on Logan, so he wanted to subtly assert his position as her boyfriend. Deathstrike also does this to Senator Kelly/Mystique seemingly without meaning to. It's another hint that she's more than meets the eye. Kelly/Mystique even comment with "quite a grip" and he/she is rubbing their hand for a few moments as the scene continues.

Continuity Cameo: Beast making a hairless appearance. Even more subtle than a brief cameo, in the second movie the real names of several mutants, including Gambit, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, were briefly seen on a computer screen as being some of the prisoners in a mutant prison. Only three, Gambit, Banshee and Quicksilver, wound up appearing later (or rather, earlier) in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Jerkass: Ronnie calls the cops on Bobby and his friends under the pretense that they were holding his family hostage, seemingly out of pure jealousy over his brother's powers. Pyro is much more vicious than his fellow X-Men even before he is swayed by Magneto's words and decides to join the Brotherhood. He is understandably enraged when a startled cop accidentally shoots Wolverine, but his reaction is to escalate the conflict by declaring he is the most dangerous mutant of all, before incinerating the man and hurling fireballs at the rest of the police. Mitchell Laurio is an insecure, sadistic slob who physically and mentally torments Magneto while the old man is completely helpless in the plastic prison.

Creepy Child: Jason Stryker, the son of Col. William Stryker, is a mutant with illusionist and mind probing powers who has been lobotomized by his father so that he follows his every word. When he tries to fool Charles Xavier into using Cerebro for him and Stryker, he creates a scenario in which he is represented as a young, slightly creepy girl who asks Xavier to look for all the mutants. The only thing letting on that they are one and the same is that they both share the same asymmetrical eyes.

While they knock out the children instantly, Cyclops was protected by the armour under his clothing and multiple darts fail to have any effect on Wolverine. Justified by his larger body mass, Healing Factor, and adrenaline as well, since he doesn't show any effects while killing the immediate threat. After all the enemies in his vicinity are neutralized, he pulls the darts out and shakes his head, indicating he was becoming at least a little woozy or disoriented. Removing the source of the sedative lets his healing eliminate the rest of it in his body.

Product Placement: Logan searches for beer in the mansion. After learning there is none, he settles on, of course, a Dr. Pepper. Later at Bobby's house, he raids the fridge for beer. Several bottles of Dr. Pepper can be seen inside the fridge.

Camping a Crapper: One of Magneto's guards is seduced, drugged, and injected with iron in a toilet stall. This leads to his death when Magneto extracts the metal from his veins. Ouch.

Handy Cuffs: William Stryker has Wolverine handcuffed with special cuffs which bind his arms and hands in such a way that his claws are pointed toward his face, making sure the only thing Wolverine can cut is himself. Unfortunately, it isn't Wolverine but Mystique in his form, and she quickly shapechanges out of the cuffs.

The Dog Bites Back
 X2: X-Men United / int_fb3576b2
comment
The Dog Bites Back: Magneto to Stryker when he finally gets a chance to get some payback for his treatment in prison. An earlier script was going to have Magneto kill Stryker (which would be more in character) and the X-Men find Stryker's body when they escaped from the facility—but that was changed for the sake of letting Wolverine have one last conversation with Stryker. And honestly, Magneto probably took quite a lot of enjoyment in leaving Stryker chained up to wait for death.

Beware the Nice Ones
 X2: X-Men United / int_fccd06b6
comment
Although Professor X was probably referring to himself, since Stryker's forces only attacked when they knew that Xavier wasn't there, having incapacitated him first. Xavier also claims that if he wanted to, he could make Wolverine spend the rest of his life believing he was a "six-year-old girl with pigtails," simply for ignoring his rules about no smoking in the mansion! He was joking that time, but imagine the carnage Xavier could cause if he ever got downright furious?! note Look up Onslaught.

Shown Their Work: The screenwriters did research on how to blow up a dam for the climactic scenes of the movie; this went mostly unremarked upon in the film (though no doubt the director and effects artists got some use out of it), but was described at some length in the novelization.
