Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })X-Men: Days of Future Past is a 2014 sci-fi superhero movie in the X-Men Film Series, adapting the Marvel Comics story of the same name. The seventh installment in the series, it is a sequel to X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine AND X-Men: The Last Stand as well as both sequel and prequel to the original X-Men Trilogy, re-combining the semi-tangled film universe into a single narrative. The film is directed by Bryan Singer, of X-Men and X2: X-Men United fame, with First Class director Matthew Vaughn serving as a producer. It is the first movie in the franchise to receive an Academy Award nomination (Best Visual Effects). An alternate version of the film with 17 minutes of additional footage was released on Blu-Ray/DVD in 2015 and subtitled The Rogue Cut.In the year 2023, mutants have become an endangered species, hunted by the mechanical "Sentinels" of Trask Industries. With nowhere else to turn, Professor X and Magneto band together for a final desperate plan: using a particular mutant's Time Travel powers to send one of their own into the past, and stop the war between man and mutant before it ever begins.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

"Mister Sandman" Sequence: When Wolverine wakes up in 1973, the first thing he sees is a lava lamp, and then he takes in the '70s decor of the rest of the room and discovers he's lying on a waterbed, as a Roberta Flack song plays on the radio.

Became Their Own Antithesis
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_11a74598
comment
Became Their Own Antithesis: The once effervescent and idealistic Xavier we saw in X-Men: First Class has crumbled into a heap of melancholia and cynicism after 1963. His telepathy, which he had been at ease with since he was 12 years old, has suddenly become a heavy burden that he avoids using at all costs. Charles' social drinking has deteriorated into alcoholism, and he gives up on other activities that he used to enjoy, such as teaching, scientific research and womanizing, in favor of a self-imposed exile from everything that exists beyond his mansion. Xavier has more or less reduced himself into a Manchild who is completely dependent on Hank, when in the other movies, various mutants rely on the paternal telepath for emotional support. Even the way he dresses has changed dramatically; the impeccable suits that define Professor X's style have been replaced by a gaudy paisley shirt paired with a brown leather jacket, or if he's feeling especially lazy, just an undershirt with jeans. Charles has also neglected his grooming, which makes him look like a confused hippie or a hobo instead of a well-adjusted, upper-class academic.

comment
Trekkie: It's hinted that Hank is a fan of Star Trek: The Original Series (an episode is playing on one of his TVs), which is fitting considering that he's a Hollywood Nerd. He describes Peter's mutation as "fascinating," which is a reference to Spock. Bryan Singer's favourite fandom is Star Trek, so it's natural that he would want to bestow that quality on the character (who, coincidentally, can be called Dr. McCoy). His Trekkie-ness is more obvious in The Rogue Cut because Beast is enjoying the episode while sipping a beverage.

Creator Cameo: Len Wein and Chris Claremont appear as members of the government committee Trask speaks to. Mystique disguises herself as cinematographer Newton Thomas Siegel as she walks away from the commotion at the Paris Peace Accords. Immediately after Past Magneto uses his power to throw several Parisian police officers backwards, Bryan Singer can be seen as a bystander filming him. Stan Lee, who makes regular cameos at all the films based in Marvel Comics (regardless of studio), does NOT appear in this one.

comment
Bloodless Carnage: Iceman gets decapitated and Colossus gets ripped apart, but since they are in their "iced-up" and metal forms respectively when it happens, there is no blood. The Sentinels impaling the normal-ish mutants like Blink don't so much as spill a drop, and Mystique gets a bullet through the leg yet walks it off with only a few drops spilled here and there. Trask's headshot entry wound on his forehead is tiny with almost no blood showing.

The Artifact
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_13d7a65e
comment
When debating how to break out Magneto, Wolverine casually announces he "knows a guy." Said guy turns out to be Quicksilver, who has not appeared or been mentioned in any of the six previous X-Men movies.note This line of dialogue is The Artifact. In the original script, the teen who helped Wolverine was a young version of Cain Marko, a.k.a. The Juggernaut, who he did encounter in X-Men: The Last Stand.

comment
There are plenty of other things that Hank could do with his time, yet he chooses to stay by Xavier's side, taking care of him during the latter's decade-long Heroic BSoD. Hank may even be a little too loyal because he serves as Charles' enabler by providing a serum which worsens his friend's already bad case of substance abuse.

Jumping Off the Slippery Slope
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_1520ad7e
comment
Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Young Erik has grown increasingly amoral since his actions in First Class. Mystique isn't far off, either. The two split right before Dallas. Trask Industries' Sentinels originally targeted mutants, but as time passed, their programming came to include regular humans whose offspring would be mutants. Eventually, they targeted anyone sympathetic to mutants who stood in their way. This ultimately brought about the Bad Future where the worst of humanity lord over the remnants of civilization, using the latest Sentinels to finish off the mutants once and for all.

Gone Horribly Right: The Sentinels were programmed to hunt and destroy mutants amongst the non-mutant populace and they proved extremely effective in this task. However, they soon began targeting people who could potentially have mutant children and then those who might have mutant grandchildren. Eventually they began wiping out the entire human race to fulfil their purpose. Bolivar Trask wanted to make the Sentinels to create peace, and got it, in the form of the apocalypse. The peace of the grave.

Never Trust a Trailer
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The first official trailer gives the impression that Wolverine is being sent back in time to recruit the primary mutant characters we met in X-Men: First Class, including Mystique (with a clip showing off her badass fighting skills coupled with spliced-together dialogue stating, "[We need her] because she's a cold-hearted bitch"), so that they can unite with the present-day cast to battle the Sentinels. This is actually the farthest thing from the truth: Logan's the only one who ever travels through time in the film, and it's for the purpose of uniting Charles and Erik so that they can stop Mystique from committing the assassination that will bring about the creation of the Sentinels in the first place. The "I don't want your future!" line from Young Charles is directed to Logan and his memories, not to Future Charles as the trailer implies. In the first trailer when Logan asks Magneto where he will find him, Erik says "A different path, a darker path"; he's referring to Mystique in the movie, not himself.

Say My Name: In 1973, Xavier angrily screams "ERIIIIIIIIK!!!" when Sentinels begin shooting at the crowd that has gathered at the White House. Although Magneto (who is wearing a telepathy-blocking helmet) has not yet appeared in his line of vision, Charles just knows that no-one else would be causing this mayhem. Logan hollers "CHARLES!" to warn his ally (who is wheelchair-bound) that he's about to be hit by a large chunk of the stadium. In The Rogue Cut, a newly rescued but weakened Rogue is Forced to Watch Bobby's Heroic Sacrifice, and can only scream his name numerous times in horror before Magneto bars the passageway and takes her back to the Blackbird.

Soft Glass: A glass ceiling that has been cracked into a thousand pieces falls right on top of Erik, and he doesn't get a single scratch. In Real Life, the stunt double suffered from mild injuries, according to Bryan Singer's commentary, because real glass was used for that scene.

The Cameo
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_1b65dfad
comment
The Cameo: The film ends with appearances from Anna Paquin as Rogue, James Marsden as Cyclops, Famke Janssen as Jean Grey, and Kelsey Grammer as the older version of Beast, all of whom were restored to life after the heroes stopped Mystique from killing Trask. A young version of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse, appears in The Stinger. Alex Summers from X-Men: First Class can be seen as one of the mutants Mystique rescues from Saigon. A younger Toad is also featured there, even appearing in a later scene watching Magneto on TV to allude how he will join the Brotherhood. Ink gets three: one in the Bad Future as a concentration camp inmate, one in Vietnam as a soldier, and one near the end, watching Magneto's New Era Speech. While Magneto moves the stadium through the air, a little red-haired girl officially stated to be Jean Gray watches the structure passing. While the Scarlet Witch is absent in the film in spite of her relationship with Quicksilver, a girl with red hair is later seen with him. Interestingly, she is only credited as "Peter's Little Sister," making her identity ambiguous (some think she's Peter's half-sister Polaris), though it definitely counts as a Mythology Gag. Bryan Singer says there was a cut-out scene where the little girl was told to "go bug your sister." This scene is restored in The Rogue Cut.

Reality Ensues: Including a demonstration of Required Secondary Powers, Quicksilver has to brace the back of Magneto's head to prevent him from getting severe whiplash while moving at super speed. Despite this, Magneto is still visibly ill and disoriented after moving so quickly. Right after they get caught, Quicksilver also incapacitates the guards in the room, with hijinks such as crossing two guard's arms, putting one's fist in his own face, poking another one in the face, and giving another one a wedgie. This proceeds to send all of them flying, as he did it at such speeds that the sheer momentum hit them with much more force. Despite Wolverine not having his metal skeleton as a weakness for Magneto to exploit, their fight is still a complete curb stomp, with Wolverine only managing to deflect a few objects before he's incapacitated and thrown into the Potomac. For all of Wolverine's hand-to-hand prowess, Magneto has a superior advantage in range. After he gets a head wound during his fight with Beast, Erik doesn't just put a bandage on it but has to clean and stitch it up using his powers.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_1dfbbf31
comment
Heterosexual Life-Partners: Played straight with the elderly Magneto and Professor X (the moment where they're holding hands is the closest that we've seen them since First Class), but averted with their younger selves. In 1973, Charles never once calls Erik "friend" (although the latter uses the endearment twice), which goes to show how broken their relationship is. Hank and Charles are each other's Only Friend for a decade, so it's inevitable that they would develop a very close bond. There are moments of non-verbal (and non-telepathic) communication between the two men, like when Xavier gently taps Beast on the chest after he mutters to Logan, "I think I'd like to wake up now." McCoy immediately understands that the gesture means, "You can calm down now, our visitor is not a threat," and he reverts back to his human form.

Cruel and Unusual Death: Since the Reset Button is in full effect here, the film does not shy away from doling out horrible deaths to the future characters, who are guaranteed to survive for another go-around. Decapitated, ripped apart, melted; the Sentinels pull no punches. Warpath gets his goddamn face burned off. Slowly. It's easily the most brutal Sentinel-related death.

Stealth Pun: The temp score used in the Comic Con trailer is a Hans Zimmer piece called "Time." In Vietnam, Mystique, disguised as a male army colonel, frees some quarantined mutants. His name is Sanders. Trask is told by Congress that his Sentinel program "ain't gonna fly." When the program is reactivated, that's exactly what the Sentinels do.

Who Shot JFK?
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_1f8cdb5c
comment
Who Shot JFK?: The Bent Bullet, part of the ARG campaign for the film, has Magneto as the man on the grassy knoll, having used his powers to alter the trajectory of Oswald's bullet, which led to Kennedy's death. However, it is implied that Magneto is trying to stop the shooter... who was actually Mystique and not the real Oswald. (Though this would seem out of character with her portrayal in the film, where she is stated to have never tried to kill anyone before Trask.) In the film itself, Magneto is being held in the Pentagon for it, but claims to Xavier that he was trying to save Kennedy because he was a mutant. We never find out if he was lying or not. It's further muddied when in the next scene he attacks Mystique using the very method he claimed to have been trying to prevent showing he has the proficiency. None the less, it's still never explicitly said what really happened.

Chekhov's Gun: The Power Nullifier that both Charles and Hank have been using to suppress their powers is useful when dealing with robots that can detect mutant powers. There's also a literal example: the plastic guns that were invented after the US government's encounter with Magneto, issued to his prison guards. Mystique uses one near the end to shoot him in the neck, as it's the only gun around that he can't control.

Anachronism Stew: Mystique ends up getting hit with a Taser in both the original and altered events of 1973, a year before Jack Cover invented the device. Hank has created a serum capable of both restoring Charles' mobility and specifically silencing a gene; both feats are still being researched today, and this film takes place in 1973, when genomics was just starting to grow as a field. It's implied that Hank has a boost from Raven's DNA. There are some technologies that are far more developed than they had been in our world (see Alternate History) or could have been by technical standards of that time. So this could be just other cases of an Alternate History.

Was It Really Worth It?: As the older Erik lies dying in the Bad Future, he laments to Charles about all the time they had lost to ideological and political differences when they could've been close friends and fighting alongside each other instead. Considering their current circumstances, it looks like it wasn't worth it.

Worf Had the Flu: Wolverine is accustomed to his adamantium skeleton and claws in the future, and going to a time period before having them makes him take a few seconds to adjust his strategy now that he isn't quite as invulnerable nor has impossibly sharp blades. His fight with a Sentinel in the climax in particular, as he realizes bone claws aren't that useful against what is described as space age polymer.

Older Than They Look
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_2f36d97
comment
Older Than They Look: Charles (aside from the beard and long hair), Erik, Hank and Alex Summers all physically look the same as they did in X-Men: First Class despite the fact that it's been over a decade since the events of that film. (Mystique is excused, since her mutation slows her aging process.) Honest Trailers even made the mistake of describing McAvoy's character as a "young man," a term usually reserved for males who are under 30; Xavier is in his late thirties/early forties in 1973, but it's easy to forget that because the actor appears younger than his actual age. Due to a combination of Playing Gertrude and that Ellen Page is Older Than They Look, Kitty Pryde is another example.

Thou Shalt Not Kill: Most of the the characters in the X-Men Film Series are perfectly okay with using lethal force, but this is a specific plot point in this film. It's stated that the young version of Mystique never killed anyone (even the people she used her Shapeshifting powers to impersonate), but Jumped Off the Slippery Slope when she decided to kill Bolivar Trask. Her decision to kill Trask set off a chain of events resulting in a Bad Future, which is the main reason Wolverine travels back in time to stop her.

Portal to the Past
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_336b2997
comment
Portal to the Past: Although there's no actual portal, Kitty's new time powers have a very specific set of rules that match the trope closely: she can't physically send people back in time, only their consciousness, time passes at the same rate for their bodies in the present and their minds in the past, and whatever changes they made to the past only affect the future once they wake up — meaning the Bad Future stays bad until Wolverine finishes his mission, instead of changing incrementally as he alters history. While Logan's mind gets sent back to inhabit his body in 1973, his 2023 body (and the rest of the X-Men) are still threatened by the approaching army of Sentinels, meaning that he only has so much time in the past to Set Right What Once Went Wrong.

Adapted Out

comment
Adapted Out: While they added a lot of characters (in the original story, only Magneto, Storm, Colossus, Kitty, and Wolverine survived while Beast and Magneto's younger self were uninvolved in the story), at the same time a lot of characters were removed from the original story. Rachel and Franklin Richards are not present in the bad future (likely because Rachel's parents were dead and Franklin is tied to the Fantastic Four and thus would require too much explanation to include them), while the film has Wolverine work with Beast and Xavier rather than the group of X-Men who did so in the past (the above mentioned from the future minus Magneto and along with Angel and Nightcrawler), and Mystique had her own Brotherhood of mutants helping her carry out the assassination, none of whom who appear in the film. At least one of these, Pyro, is justified by being tied into the original films' timeline and so isn't born at this point, as was the X-Men team involved.

Wolverine Publicity: Although Hugh Jackman has the most screen time of any single actor, the central character of the story is the younger Xavier, but James McAvoy takes up a meager amount of space on the official poster (see the image at the top of this page). Jennifer Lawrence is more famous than McAvoynote And, at this point, Hugh Jackman - she didn't find that Oscar in a Cracker Jack box, so Mystique's prominence on the poster is equal to Wolverine's despite her role being smaller than Charles'. Moreover, McAvoy is absent from the Blu-Ray/DVD cover◊ for The Rogue Cut, which has Michael Fassbender's Magneto (who also is a bigger star than McAvoy) as its largest figure.

Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_35b241c0
comment
Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: As in the previous film, James McAvoy loses his English accent in favor of his native Scottish one when he shouts, "I don't want YA FUTCHA!" It's even more apparent when he's yelling at Erik on the plane because it comes out as, "YA ABONDONED MEH!" Interestingly, it's averted with Michael Fassbender who maintains an Ian McKellen-esque English accent rather than slipping into his own Irish one as he did repeatedly in First Class. Fassbender acknowledges the change in his character's speech pattern in the "Double Take: Xavier & Magneto" documentary. The English Nicholas Hoult's American accent is pretty good, but he frequently messes up on the word "professor." Hugh Jackman's Australian accent slips out in Wolverine's very first line of dialogue.

comment
Actor Allusion: In the scene where Erik tries to kill Mystique with a bullet, his attempts to hit her with it are presented in slow motion, at one point curving the bullet around Charles' head. When she shapeshifts into an Army Colonel in Vietnam, the name on her uniform is "Sanders", whose best-known creation is KFC. The "K" stands for Kentucky - Jennifer Lawrence's birthstate. Lampshaded by James McAvoy when talking about his character's '70s clothing in this interview. In the aforementioned movie, it should be noted that McAvoy had portrayed a cocky, naïve, carefree, womanizing medical doctor who enjoys a good drink, and experiences a series of traumatic events that leaves the character with severe psychological and physical wounds. In the Paris subway, a sign can be seen for "Victor Hugo Ave." Jackman appeared in Les Misérables, based on Hugo's novel of the same name.

Blessed with Suck
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_3c3f28a5
comment
Blessed With Suck: After slipping into a deep depression, the younger Charles views his telepathy as a curse because he can no longer control it. He is unable to shut out the clamor of thoughts that he doesn't want to hear, and this causes a tremendous amount of agony. He becomes addicted to a serum which numbs his ability, just to allow himself to sleep at night. At the age of nine, Xavier believed that he was mentally ill (schizophrenia, most likely) due to the voices in his head, and it took him three whole years to recognize that he was actually telepathic — as dysfunctional as he is in 1973, his childhood experience must have been downright nightmarish in comparison. This is Beast's attitude towards his physical mutation. He goes through great lengths in order to mask what he perceives to be his body's grotesque deformities.

No Kill Like Overkill: This seems to be the Future Sentinels' general philosophy when taking out targets. As such they commit a string of ruthlessly brutal and outright cruel murder during the film, seemingly to ensure their targets are taken out for good. There is some cold justification for this considering how much punishment some mutants can take, though it doesn't make what they do any less horrific.

Curb-Stomp Battle
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_3d699462
comment
Curb-Stomp Battle: Wolverine vs. Magneto. Even without adamantium covering his bones, Magneto has a baseball stadium full of metal to weaponize, preventing Wolverine from even landing a hit before he's disabled. Magneto's fight with a 1973 Sentinel only lasts a few seconds, as he rips the metal bars inside the android, tearing it limb from limb. Subverted with Wolverine's fight with the mafia goons. The audience and Wolverine himself believes that it won't even be a problem for him, but then we learn that Wolverine doesn't have his adamantium (which besides making his claws super-sharp, also protect him from a headshot and absorb the impacts of the bullets). Wolverine still wins fairly easily (he's still Immune to Bullets because of his Healing Factor), but it's not entirely one-sided. Warpath doesn't stand a chance when facing three Sentinels with only a knife in the opening battle.

Historical Hero Upgrade: Double Subverted with Richard Nixon, perhaps the most vilified president of the twentieth century, who gets a big, heroic Take Me Instead moment during a hostage situation only for it to turn out that it's a disguised Mystique getting the drop on Magneto. Then the real Nixon calls off the mutant genocide when one of them saves his life.

Parental Substitute
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_3f11ef74
comment
Parental Substitute: Charles invokes this trope when he claims that he had raised Raven, but Erik corrects him — they grew up together. He is not her father. This ties into the end of the film, when he stops trying to control her and lets her make her own choice. Downplayed in the scene where Charles interacts with Peter before the former departs for Paris. Xavier instinctively behaves in a paternal manner when he's around a young mutant, especially one who doesn't have much of a direction in his life (in Quicksilver's case, he's a juvenile delinquent who grew up without a father). Peter's smile at the end indicates that he appreciates the sentiment.

Adaptational Heroism: Mystique is given a very realistic and sympathetic motivation for her Start of Darkness moment, in contrast to her depiction in the comics. In fact, the film goes so far as to establish that prior to killing Bolivar Trask, she'd never taken a single life during one of her crimes. Additionally, she pulls a Heel–Face Turn and not only spares Trask, but rescues the president from Magneto during the climax.

comment
First-Name Basis: While the public and most other characters refer to Erik (Magneto) and Raven (Mystique) by their mutant code names, Charles and Hank still remain on a first name basis with both of them, and vice versa. This is the first time in the franchise where Logan uses Charles' first name when speaking to Xavier directly. It's the result of the close friendship they developed during the Time Skip after The Wolverine. Surprisingly, the elderly Magneto calls Bobby by his first name instead of his codename (Iceman). This indicates that Erik must have gotten to know Bobby on a more personal level during their war against the Future Sentinels.

Blatant Lies: When Past Xavier (who is drunk and looks like he just got out of bed) is initially unwilling to hear Logan's plea for help, his excuse is: When confronted by guards in the Pentagon kitchen, Charles attempts to reassure them that he and Logan are important personnel, but one part of his speech is especially unconvincing. There's a glitch in Logan's Mental Time Travel, resulting in his past self waking up at the worst possible time, in the middle of a botched assassination, surrounded by strange people (some of whom are blue), days after he last remembers anything. Charles briefly tries to explain the situation to him truthfully, before giving up.

Mess of Woe: In 1973, Charles' neglect of his mansion is a reflection of how utterly forlorn he is. His bedroom and study are extremely cluttered, plus the grass on his estate is overgrown. Hank does his best to clean up some of the mess that Xavier carelessly leaves behind (at one point we see McCoy picking up empty liquor bottles).

A.I. Is a Crapshoot: In Wolverine's own words, the Sentinels were created to kill mutants, but then moved on to anyone with the potential to breed more mutants, then anyone who tried to aid the mutants (insert WWII analogy here). The "very worst of humanity" are all that remain, ruling over the Sentinels. Zigzagged with the 1973 Sentinels. Magneto laces the prototypes with iron so he can control their movements and use them as weapons, but he can't really affect their programming. One Sentinel tries to kill Erik when it gets the chance.

Dropped a Bridge on Him
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_43a045de
comment
Dropped a Bridge on Him: In the tie-in material, it's revealed that Warren Worthington III is killed by Sentinels during a mutant protest. He is likely brought back later by the Cosmic Retcon. According to the tie-in material, Future Beast gets dragged from his home and murdered by a mob of mutant-hating humans akin to the "Friends of Humanity" from the 90's animated series. Doubles as a Call-Back if you're watching the prequel before watching the main X-Men trilogy. X-Men: First Class spent a good bit of time introducing some new mutants, such as Banshee, Emma Frost, Angel, Azazel, Riptide and Havok. One sequel later in this movie, Havok gets a few minutes of screen time before being rescued by Mystique. As for the rest, Riptide isn't mentioned, and Banshee, Emma, Angel, Azazel are all pronounced dead by Young Magneto. While they were killed between films, Raven/Mystique infiltrates Trask's office, where the audience is then treated to some photographs of the aforementioned mutants... post-autopsy. Beyond the autopsy photo appearance, one of Angel's wings can also be seen in a vault (this is unrelated to her death as that wing was lost during the climax of First Class).

Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Charles in 1973 is more accurately an Overly Sensitive Guy with Wolverine in the Manly Man role. Logan has to act as the "glue" which barely holds the emotionally fragile Xavier together in order to complete their mission. Their opposite natures are most directly contrasted in the Pentagon kitchen scene, where Charles attempts to persuade the guards that he and his partner have a valid reason to be there, while Wolverine just knocks them out with a frying pan.

Butt-Monkey: Despite his prominence in the overarching franchise (and his role as The Dragon to Trask), William Stryker suffers the most injuries and beatdowns out of anyone in the film. He's blasted by Havok in the opening scene, tasered after Mystique's failed assassination of Trask, and beaten again when Nixon and his team discover Mystique is in the room with them. It's really no wonder he seems to hate mutants so much later on, when he spends all of his screen time in this one getting his ass beaten by them.

What Xavier has been in since the end of First Class.

Magneto: Stabbed in the abdomen by a piece of shrapnel. He bled to death shortly after reconciling with Charles.

Holy Backlight
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_4fc5ac56
comment
Holy Backlight: When Past Xavier first meets Logan, the former stands in front of very large windows with his family's crests, which are made out of stained glass. This gives the scene a church-like feel, and the sunshine is quite bright compared to Charles' dark silhouette, so it gives the impression that he's bathed in holy light.

Body Horror
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_504a1991
comment
Body Horror: Happens to Wolverine during the film's climax, when Magneto impales him with several rebar pipes, entwining them within his flesh and leaving him to drown in the Potomac. Several of the deaths in the Bad Future. First time out, Colossus has his head caved in whilst in his metal form and Iceman's head is snapped from the the rest of his body in his frozen form, only for the events to later be defied. In the climax, Bishop explodes due to being "force fed" too much energy, Colossus is ripped in two, Sunspot loses an arm, and Iceman has most of his torso vaporized. The autopsy photos of the many mutants (including Angel Salvadore and Azazel) who were experimented upon by Bolivar Trask are very graphic and gruesome. Angel's wings have been amputated.

The Farmer and the Viper
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_505a1021
comment
The Farmer and the Viper: 1973 Magneto's sole contribution to the venture is to derail things the moment he sees a chance to advance his cause at the expense of everyone else. As the endings of First Class and X2 show, this is something of a habit for him.

comment
Not Wearing Tights: The film Zig-Zags on this. The future X-Men wear costumes (mostly black but with some ornamentation), while most of the 1973-era characters just wear their street clothes. However, the younger Magneto wears a red costume that looks much closer to his comic design than any of the previous cinematic takes on the character.

Book-Ends
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_53224e46
comment
Bookends: The film opens and closes with narrations from both the old and young Charles Xavier, respectively; the former contemplates the future while the latter reflects on the past. Logan waking up in a daze to Roberta Flack's 1969 cover of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" in both 1973 and the new Alternate Timeline (playing on an oldies station on Internet satellite radio). The mutant boy who is about to be fried by a Future Sentinel just before the main titles unexpectedly reappears in the Alternate Timeline as one of Professor X's students, safe and sound. The first sequence depicting the Bad Future is a Curb-Stomp Battle given by the Sentinels, ending in a single Sentinel energy beam approaching Kitty Pryde and Bishop just as they successfully revert to an alternate timeline. The last sequence depicting it is a battle with a similar outcome ending in Xavier shielding Kitty and Wolverine from three Sentinel energy beams just as Mystique drops her gun in the past, allowing Trask to live and successfully averting the Sentinel dominated future entirely.

The Empath: Although Xavier is a full-fledged telepath, he's the personification of empathy. He can be finely attuned to the emotions of others, feeling exactly what they feel. At its worst, he suffers from Power Incontinence, which turns his existence into a living hell because his mind is perpetually engulfed by people's pain. However, the elder Professor X asserts that empathy is their most precious quality when he consoles his younger self.

Artistic License – History: RFK Stadium is shown with a baseball diamond, when in real life the Washington Senators baseball team had moved to Texas in 1971, two years before this film is set. Magneto was involved in the JFK assassination, because why else would the bullet curve? While a popular conspiracy theory for some time, modern analysis has shown that due to the positions JFK and Governor Connaly were sitting in, the bullet would not have to curve to give them the injuries they received.

Quicksilver is one of the fastest characters in the Marvel comics universe, but he has limitations on just how fast, and is generally well under the speed of sound. Hank mistakes him for a teleporter, and fans have noted that Peter's Super Speed and power set (he's capable of redirecting bullets with ease and shattering glass by vibrating his hands) are closer to The Flash, who explicitly has a speed advantage over Quicksilver in inter-company crossover stories.

Fantastic Racism: Played with: Bolivar Trask claims to Stryker that he does not hate mutants. He respects them, but wants to use them in order to make humanity band together. However, he still thinks of them as research material rather than people. It's emphasized even further when Mystique gets into the presidential safe-room, and Trask refers to her as "it" when he insists that they not shoot it because he needs her for research purposes. Magneto grows stronger in his loathing of humanity.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_5fc3ab7f
comment
Implied Love Interest: Much like The Last Stand, it's left rather vague whether or not Bobby and Kitty had anything going on. The Rogue Cut makes it explicit because they kiss twice. Come Cosmic Retcon, Bobby is back to being in a relationship with Rogue. Kitty and Colossus co-teaching a class may mean something between them as well. Erik and Raven. When she's holding a spike to his throat, he just quips, "It's been a while since we were this close." There is also a hint when Charles asks Erik for the second time, "How is she [Raven]?", and Charles' facial expression when he hears the answer reads, "Oh, god, he has slept with my sister." In the "Double Take: Xavier & Magneto" featurette on the Blu-Ray release, Michael Fassbender mentions that his character is "...very close to Mystique, he has very strong feelings for her." On one of the commentaries of The Rogue Cut, Bryan Singer states matter-of-factly that Erik was Mystique's lover.

Time Skip

comment
Wolverine has developed this for Xavier during the Time Skip after the post-credits scene of The Wolverine. Although both Magneto and Professor X are co-leaders of the remaining mutants in 2023, Logan only defers to Charles' authority. When Erik tells him that, "You'll need me as well [in the past]," Wolverine is wholly against the idea, but he reluctantly agrees after Xavier nods in approval.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_60d73edb
comment
Drink-Based Characterization: The Vietnamese general orders whiskey for both himself and Mystique. In the case of the latter, it represents her tough and determined nature. 1973 Xavier is frequently seen consuming whiskey. It is generally viewed as a "manly" drink, but it's inverted in this case because he's an extremely depressed Manchild.

Heel–Face Turn: Magneto seems to have made the turn between X-Men: The Last Stand and his cameo appearance at the end of The Wolverine, because in this movie, Future Magneto is firmly on Professor X's side throughout and ultimately makes a Heroic Sacrifice against the Sentinels during the climax. Mystique eventually decides to give up her vendetta against Trask to prevent future bloodshed against Mutants. She also saves Nixon and his cabinet from Magneto.

'70s Hair: The younger Professor X still has a full head of hair, and sports a longer, hippie-style mane. Mystique rocks some hairstyles of the time in her human form and in one scene, masquerades as a black woman with an enormous afro. Quicksilver's glam mop upset many fans in promotional materials, but it fits in with the era perfectly. Trask's hair helmet is very appropriate for the time period. Wolverine still wears his muttonchops even in the future scenes.

Freeze-Frame Bonus: Bryan Singer has confirmed in his commentary that the little red-haired girl who watches the stadium floating overhead is Jean Grey. The Rogue Cut includes a scene where Warpath offers a prayer to the dead, and behind him on the makeshift shrine dedicated to lost loved ones, you can spot Nightcrawler's rosary and Pyro's lighter. When Mystique is masquerading as an Army officer in Saigon, the name on his (her) shirt says "Sanders." That's right, she is disguised as "Colonel Sanders."

Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: The X-Men series has a long tradition of ignoring this trope. When Wolverine tells Xavier about his future, he advises him to search for people with certain names: Scott, Jean... and "Storm." Having just read Logan's mind, Xavier certainly would know who he's talking about, but still it's weird. Quicksilver is never called by that name. Erik is only referred to as "Magneto" in a newspaper article, and once by Logan. When talking about their Sentinel avoiding plan, Kitty uses codenames: "Warpath" spots the sentinels, "Blink" scouts a new location, etc.

Heroic Sacrifice
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_6439de78

Heroic Sacrifice: The future team's strategy to escape the Sentinels boils down to this. Warpath and the mutants with offensive abilities throw themselves at the androids to stall for time, so that Kitty can send Bishop's consciousness to the past and prevent the attack from ever happening. In The Rogue Cut, Iceman dies holding back a trio of Sentinels so that Magneto can escape with Rogue.

Played with: Bolivar Trask claims to Stryker that he does not hate mutants. He respects them, but wants to use them in order to make humanity band together. However, he still thinks of them as research material rather than people. It's emphasized even further when Mystique gets into the presidential safe-room, and Trask refers to her as "it" when he insists that they not shoot it because he needs her for research purposes.

Big Brother Instinct: When the younger Charles sees Mystique again for the first time in 11 years, he caresses her hair and shoulder as a gesture of comfort while telling her that he will keep her safe among other soothing words. When Magneto then points a gun in her direction, Xavier stands in between the barrel and his foster sister, and Erik later has to use his power to change the bullet's trajectory so that it won't hit Charles in the head. Despite their estrangement, Xavier is willing to die for Raven to save her life. Peter Maximoff is seen playing with his little sister. He's even willing to sit down and watch television with her, which is heartwarming considering how hyperactive the guy is.

Jerkass Has a Point: Trask justifies the need for his Sentinels to Nixon by pointing out Mystique can shapeshift into any person; she could impersonate Nixon himself, walk into the White House, and order a nuclear attack. Considering all the other things we've seen her do with her powers over the franchise, including the infiltration of the government in such a manner as he warns, his concerns are perfectly valid. He also points out Magneto's power of metal control and the obvious fact that nearly every conventional weapon is made of metal (and especially with what we've seen he can do at the end of First Class), the need for something new is hard to argue against.

Meaningful Look: Kitty and Bobby share one as they cross paths during their battle against the Sentinels, and this may allude to them being in a relationship. Mystique, disguised as a colonel, winks at Alex in a reassuring manner which says, "Don't worry, I'll get you out of this." Alex is unaware that the colonel is his former friend, though, so the wink confuses him. Hank and Charles exchange an amused "Why am I not surprised?" glance (the former even adds a raised eyebrow) after Peter asks them, "I saw your flight plan in the cockpit; why are you going to Paris?" When Trask mentions that the Sentinel program will cost a lot more given that Congress shut it down, he pointedly looks at said congressman who's in the room with them.

Chess Motifs: During the plane ride to Paris, Erik tries to convince Charles to play chess for old time's sake; the latter refuses at first (it's an indicator of their practically non-existent friendship), but eventually relents. Xavier tells him, "You have the first move," a rare instance where Lehnsherr is assigned the white side for the game, which apparently symbolizes that he's on the X-Men's team. The first thing Magneto does once they reach the Parisian hotel is betray them.

Adaptation Personality Change
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_6fbe85e6
comment
Adaptation Personality Change: Peter Maximoff is portrayed more positively and more negatively in comparison to the original source. In the comics, he is often an outright jerk (often intentionally), but in this film, he's more of a merry mischief-maker. He can easily flee on his own once the breakout goes bust, but instead, he goes out of his way to save Logan, Charles and Erik, even though he had already freed the latter from prison by technicality. Quicksilver is also clearly not impressed (if amused) by the idea that he helped free the person suspected of killing JFK once he finds out, and is shown to be stunned and horrified by Magneto's "demonstration" in the climax. Comic book Quicksilver may be a world-class asshole and suffer from Heel–Face Revolving Door, but he is well-meaning at the core and can be counted on to do the right thing. Here, he's just a bored teenager with a kleptomaniac streak who doesn't really care about being a productive member of society, and who has to have the breakout sold to him as an opportunity to raise hell, as it's clear that he wouldn't have done it of his own volition otherwise.

You Can't Fight Fate: Discussed. Hank theorizes that the flow of reality eventually corrects itself, so one can't change the future by changing events in the past, compared to ripples from a rock thrown into a river. It's Played with from then on. The Sentinel-ravaged post-apocalyptic future is averted. However, the last scene in the altered future suggests that for the most part, the history of the X-men unfolded more or less the same way. Word Of God themselves admit as much. No matter how much history changes, Professor X will always form the classic X-men; Cyclops, Jean, Storm, Wolverine, Rogue, Iceman etc. will always end up at the Mansion; and Stryker or no Stryker, Logan always gets his adamantium claws. Status Quo Is God in other words!

comment
Godzilla Threshold: The main characters' plan is to erase themselves and everyone else from existence, because in the new future they would be different people with different experiences and no memory of the originals. Everybody understands it, yet they go through with it without question anyway: the current situation is just that bad. Having failed to convince Congress to fund the Sentinel program, Trask and Stryker decide to hand over the plans to the Communist bloc, even though the technology could be used against the United States.

Don't Create a Martyr
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_7348f03e
comment
Don't Create a Martyr: The plot is driven by the need to stop Mystique from killing Bolivar Trask, creator of the Sentinel program, because his death at the hands of a mutant will only drive others to finish his work. In addition, since Mystique is captured when she does it, they are able to adapt her mutation to give the Sentinels Adaptive Ability, which made them unstoppable.

Adaptational Badass
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_736d791f
comment
Adaptational Badass: In the comics, the Sentinels are just Humongous Mecha, and mutants with strong powers note the X-Men in the comics are much stronger than in the movies, with Storm, Magneto, Iceman, and Xavier being planetary threats usually take them down by the dozen. They are portrayed roughly as such in the 1973 portion of this movie as well. The future Sentinels, however, are a Composite Character with Nimrod, an advanced Sentinel that racked up a significant body count over the years in the comics. The difference is that there's dozens of them in the movie and Conservation of Ninjutsu is not in effect: with their ability to duplicate mutant powers to counter their opponents, they are so overwhelmingly powerful that any fight with them is considered outright hopeless. Quicksilver is one of the fastest characters in the Marvel comics universe, but he has limitations on just how fast, and is generally well under the speed of sound. Hank mistakes him for a teleporter, and fans have noted that Peter's Super Speed and power set (he's capable of redirecting bullets with ease and shattering glass by vibrating his hands) are closer to The Flash, who explicitly has a speed advantage over Quicksilver in inter-company crossover stories.

Metal Detector Checkpoint: There is one on the White House lawn; it beeps when Xavier passes through because of his wheelchair, and when it's Wolverine's turn... nothing happens because his 1973 body is adamantium-free. This is a subversion of a running gag throughout the X-Men films going all the way back to the first film.

Spared by the Adaptation: In the original story, future Wolverine died during an ill-fated attack on the Sentinels headquarters. In the movie, he's the one who travels back in time to Set Right What Once Went Wrong. In the original comic, Future Magneto was the first to die, sacrificing himself early on by providing an off-panel diversion so the remaining resistance could escape their imprisonment. During the Last Stand in the film, although he's badly wounded, he never succumbs to his wounds before the timeline is reset.

Hate at First Sight
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_74d9d78f
comment
Hate at First Sight: Judging by the harsh glare the younger Magneto gives to Logan just before he walks away from the Pentagon kitchen, he plainly dislikes the clawed mutant even though the latter hasn't done or said anything negative. It seems highly unlikely that Erik would remember a rude stranger that he once tried to recruit in a bar 11 years prior, and even if he did, his behaviour is rather antagonistic for such a minor insult.

Remember the New Guy?
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_77b03c0a
comment
Remember the New Guy?: When debating how to break out Magneto, Wolverine casually announces he "knows a guy." Said guy turns out to be Quicksilver, who has not appeared or been mentioned in any of the six previous X-Men movies.note This line of dialogue is The Artifact. In the original script, the teen who helped Wolverine was a young version of Cain Marko, a.k.a. The Juggernaut, who he did encounter in X-Men: The Last Stand. The future portion of the film fully incorporates the idea from First Class which established that Charles and Mystique grew up together. It can seem a bit jarring to see Patrick Stewart's Xavier sadly recounting how he once loved Mystique and considered her his sister, when there is absolutely no indication at any point in the original trilogy that the two were ever close or even knew one another.

The Big Bad Shuffle: Mystique and Bolivar Trask compete for title of villain; it's Trask's Sentinels that lead to the Bad Future, but it's Mystique killing him and being captured for experimentation that leads to the Sentinels getting approved by the government, making her the one whose Evil Plan needs to be stopped. Additionally in the future Trask and Mystique are dead, making it the Sentinels themselves that are the villains. And then in the past Magneto ends up becoming a third villain when he decides to kill Trask and the President.

Smart People Play Chess: Xavier and Magneto have a chess game on the plane, but, in this case, it was more like discussing with a chess table between them, without playing much. The lack of play and banter symbolizes the extreme distance and hostility (perhaps the worst in the series) between them, including Erik's violent outburst just minutes earlier.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_7fbb2a3
comment
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Magneto tries to kill Mystique because experiments performed on her were used to give the future Sentinels their adaptive abilities. However, this attempt spills her blood, allowing it to be collected and sent to Trask Industries. It's downplayed in that Trask still needs the living specimen. Likewise, the same attempt leads to Mystique, Magneto and Beast all jumping out the window and being seen on TV doing incredible things, which causes a public scare bad enough that Nixon gives Trask the funding he needs to produce prototype Sentinels decades ahead of schedule. Again downplayed in that they all get destroyed in the end anyways. The heroes' decision to break Magneto out ultimately does more harm than good. Given Mystique's happy reaction to Charles's presence, it seems leaving Erik in prison would have saved a lot of problems. It's even discussed by Xavier when he tells Logan, "It was a mistake freeing Erik." Depending on how you interpret The Stinger, it seems that, in preventing the Bad Future, the X-Men have somehow inadvertently set the stage for Apocalypse to rise up and attack mankind in the new timeline. The Rogue Cut adds two more examples: In freeing Rogue, Iceman is killed, and the Sentinels gain the means to track the X-Men to where they where hiding, via a Sentinel arm stuck on the jet. Hank allows Raven back into the mansion and doesn't tell Charles or Logan, allowing her to gain access to Cerebro and smash it, before fleeing into the night, making them unable to track her.

BFG: Bishop wields one which he charges with his powers. On closer inspection, it appears to be connected to his circulatory system. It's one of the few things capable of inflicting permanent damage on the Sentinels.

Logical Weakness
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_83641c73
comment
Logical Weakness: So, the Sentinels are made of a "space-age polymer" and contain no metal, and Wolverine has no adamantium in his body anymore? No problem, Magneto just bends some metal into their bodies so he can still restrain and/or control them with his powers. The future Sentinels exploit several logical weaknesses in their battles with the future X-Men. They deliberately focus firepower on Bishop and forcefeed him so much energy that it overloads him, use extreme heat and fire to negate Iceman's powers, and after all the other X-Men are dealt with, they focus on swarming Blink, attacking her from so many angles that she can't think to make portals fast enough. As mentioned above, they're made of an advanced polymer, meaning Magneto has to fall back on using outside sources of metal to fight them, making it easier for them to take him on.

comment
Nerd Glasses: Hank clearly likes the horn-rimmed kind because he continues to wear them 11 years after First Class. The surface area of the lenses are slightly larger and more square-ish to reflect the style of the The '70s. Dr. Bolivar Trask's glasses are a tad too big for his face, but they were considered fashionable during this time period. His eyewear is meant to denote his status as an engineer (more specifically a weapons designer).

What Happened to the Mouse?
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: Mystique is shown impersonating William Stryker at the end of the movie, but what she did with the real Stryker is unclear. Given that in the next film, Strikers turns up alive and well and with Logan in his power, it seems Mystique's plan didn't work, whatever it was. Magneto doesn't mention Riptide's death alongside the other deceased Brotherhood members, although Mystique does find a autopsy file on him in Trask's office, indicating that he was killed in-between films as well. What became of future Magneto and Mystique in the new timeline isn't shown. Angel (Warren Worthington III) is the only X-Man killed in the Bad Future not to appear in the Alternate Timeline. In fact, he doesn't appear in the movie at all. Even future Beast, who debuted in the same movie as Angel, got to make a cameo! This is explained in X-Men: Apocalypse: in the alternate timeline, Angel became Archangel, one of Apocalypse's Four Horsemen, and was killed during a fight with that timeline's fledgling X-Men. Nightcrawler also remains absent since his first appearance in X2: X-Men United, but a Freeze-Frame Bonus on The Rogue Cut reveals that he had passed away before 2023 because his rosary hangs on a makeshift shrine dedicated to the dead.

Badass Beard: Iceman sports one. Shawn Ashmore has said in interviews that it signifies his character's maturity. Bishop's thick facial hair makes him look formidable. Inverted with the younger Xavier; he has a beard and somewhat longer hair, but they signify how much he has let himself go.

While moving at Super Speed, simply tapping a person is the practical equivalent of getting hit by a heavyweight boxer, and he can take out an entire room of armed guards so quickly that their bullets weren't even able to reach the people they had shot at when he started.

Wolverine's past self has been recovered by William Stryker, apparently setting up his involvement with Weapon X. Then we find out Stryker is actually Mystique in disguise.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_87ede6fc
comment
That Man Is Dead: When Hank tells Logan that "the Professor isn't here," Xavier is still living at his estate, only he has lost his powers and the will to lead mutants, thus dissociating himself from his identity as Professor X. It doubles as a Call-Back to the previous movie when he insisted that "You don't get to be called a 'professor' until you actually have a teaching position." At the beginning, Mystique tells Alex that Raven isn't her name anymore. Given how the film ends, it's ambiguous if she still feels this way.

In The Rogue Cut, Future Xavier can view the mansion through Magneto's and Iceman's minds, and he gives them instructions as they walk in hidden passageways towards the Cerebro room.

Bullet Time: The film features a young Quicksilver. His scenes usually just show his movement as a blur, but his bullet-time sequence, as well as highlighting how he sees the world when he runs, shows him to be not just fast enough to dodge bullets meant for him — he's fast enough to artfully rearrange them in flight so that they do not hit his allies. This is after running a lap of the room and inventively messing with over half a dozen shooters on the opposing side.

Overshadowed by Awesome: Happens to Wolverine, of all people. He's The Heart here, helping 1973-era Charles Xavier deal with his issues. Against the various security guards and soldiers, Wolverine pulls his weight, but he's not nearly as effective as Quicksilver or Magneto without his adamantium bones and claws. Against Sentinels, he's not even as effective as Beast. Even when this takes away his normal vulnerability to Magneto, he's still quite outclassed.

Swapped Roles
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_8d612fe6
comment
Swapped Roles: Professor X was Wolverine's mentor in the original trilogy, but in 1973, Logan has to try to motivate and counsel an emotionally damaged Xavier. Not surprisingly, the abrasive Wolverine is bad at this task, and it's discussed in the following exchange: This also applies to Charles and Hank. In X-Men: First Class, Xavier acted as a big brother figure to McCoy (they're about a decade apart in age), but after 1963, Hank becomes responsible for Charles. Although McCoy certainly prevents his friend from doing anything too self-destructive, he inadvertently becomes Xavier's enabler by inventing an addictive telepathy-blocking serum. Considering that Hank was probably only around 21 years old when he suddenly found himself in the position of being Charles' long-term caregiver (plus he has no experience looking after someone who is mentally ill), it's understandable that he couldn't help his former mentor as well as he would've liked.

Take a Third Option
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_950bbfa7
comment
Take a Third Option: Erik asks Mystique, "Are you still Charles's Raven... or are you Mystique?" (What Magneto is truly referring to with the latter is if she's still his soldier.) In the end, she chooses her own path. She doesn't adhere to her foster brother's pacifism, and she rejects her former lover's warmongering.

Bus Crash: Mystique discovers partway through the film that Angel Salvadore, Azazel, Emma Frost, and Banshee (Sean Cassidy) all died (and their bodies were used in experiments by Trask) during the Time Skip between X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past. The tie-in website reveals that Angel (Warren Worthington) and Beast from X-Men: The Last Stand were killed between X-Men: The Last Stand and the Bad Future of this film's opening. When the younger Beast asks, Wolverine admits that Beast died at some point in the Bad Future.

Defrosting Ice King: In a Power of Friendship example, Wolverine's bond with the elderly Professor X must have grown quite strong during the Time Skip in between The Wolverine and Days of Future Past because after Logan meets the younger Charles — who is practically a stranger to him — he gradually sheds his outer "macho armour." Compared to Wolverine's normally gruff exterior (especially towards other male characters), he really is quite gentle with Xavier in a few scenes where it's just the two of them, like the plane ride to Washington, D.C. and the heart-to-heart talk they share in the Alternate Timeline.

Behind the Black: When Wolverine awakes to the new future and meets Jean, he walks right up to her, but doesn't notice Scott although he should be in his field of view. Well-disguised since his initial approach has Scott on the other side of the door from him as Jean stands in the doorway, although this becomes less justified as they converse.

There Are No Therapists: You'd think that Hank would try to get a therapist to help Charles with his depression and substance abuse, yet it doesn't happen. It could be justified that Xavier wants to avoid mental health professionals because it's suggested that he was treated like a schizophrenic patient as a child (and considering how a few psychiatric practices of the 1940s are viewed as unethical today, Charles has no desire to risk a repeat of his past experience) or because he cannot simply find a therapist whom he can trust with the knowledge of the mutants's existence.

Furthermore, we see Past Magneto fully ascend to the Big Bad even as Future Magneto and Charles share the Big Good role among the future X-Men. As such, this movie shows him at his most good and his most evil.

I Hate Past Me: An unusual variation where it's not stated by the time-traveller Wolverine himself. Right before Kitty sends Wolverine's consciousness back to the past, Future Erik briefly mentions that he worries that his and Charles' past-selves won't understand the nightmarish situation in the Bad Future. Future Charles doesn't want to discuss it further. At the climax, in the Dramatic Irony moment no less, we can say Future Erik is right to worry about his own past-self.

Conveniently Timed Distraction: President Nixon emerges from the bunker and tells Magneto to spare his men and kill only him, but Magneto disagrees and still plans to kill all of them. While Beast is dealing with a 1973 Sentinel, he uses his serum to temporarily suppress his mutant powers, which causes the Sentinel to turn its attention towards Magneto, who easily tears it apart. With Magneto distracted, Mystique reveals herself to be disguised as Nixon, and slightly grazes Magneto's neck with a plastic gun before knocking him out.

comment
Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Mystique's plan was simply to avenge a number of dead mutants by killing the man who had experimented with their corpses. That man had projects, rejected by the Congress, to build powerful robots to kill mutants. His death proved his point that mutants were a genuine menace, and so his projects were restored and continued by other people. The Sentinels would prove so deadly and effective that they would cause the apocalyptic future seen at the beginning of the story.

Nothing Is the Same Anymore: After all the time-travelling takes place, the course of history has been altered with only Wolverine and Professor X aware of what went on previously, Jean Grey and Cyclops are both Back from the Dead, Rogue apparently has her powers once more, Mystique has apparently undergone a Heel–Face Turn, and the public became aware of the mutant presence two decades earlier than it did in the original timeline. Also, the events of The Last Stand and Origins have been confirmed to never have transpired in the new timeline, and the events of X-Men and X-Men United occurred differently if they occurred at all.

comment
Took a Level in Badass: In comparison to X-Men: First Class where her only physical scenes involve weight training and her shape-changing abilities used only as a distraction to aid someone else, Mystique has developed into using some of the acrobatic fighting style that her older counterpart from the first trilogy excels at. In X-Men: First Class, Havok lacks accuracy with his destructive powers, but shows signs of improvement by the end. In his brief scene here, he neutralizes a soldier using a non-lethal blast with little effort. Iceman has taken several more levels in comparison to the previous films, including the debut of the iconic ice slide from the comics.

Fix Fic: The film uses a Cosmic Retcon involving time-travel to undo some of the more unpopular plot points from X-Men: The Last Stand, and it takes special care to give a wide range of characters their own subplots — Mystique, Beast and Professor Xavier noticeably take center-stage far more often than they did in previous movies — to answer criticisms about Wolverine constantly hogging the focus from other characters. By the end of the movie, Cyclops, Jean Grey and Professor Xavier are alive again, Rogue and Bobby are still together, Rogue has her powers back, and Jean and Cyclops are back to Official Couple status.

Dramatically Missing the Point: The Magneto of 2023 tells Wolverine that they'll need to attain his younger self in preventing the Bad Future, intending that both himself from 1973 and 1973's Xavier work together in order to make a better future. After discovering what will happen and what causes it however, 1973's Magneto instead tries to kill Mystique and then when that fails, attempts to murder Bolivar Trask and the President of the United States on live television and demonstrate mutant superiority as his means of preventing the Bad Future. As a result, 1973 Magneto very nearly manages to make things much, much worse than they already were.

Purple Is Powerful: The 1973 Sentinels are a complicated example. They are purple and certainly powerful, but they pale in comparison to their solid-grey future counterparts. Blink's Battle Aura and Facial Markings are purple and she is indeed a powerful mutant.

Forgot I Couldn't Swim: Wolverine forgets that his '70s body doesn't have adamantium on his bones or claws several times; he's surprised when he doesn't set off a metal detector and tries to cut a Sentinel prototype, even though his uncoated claws have points but no edges.

Canon Discontinuity
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_a32334b4
comment
Canon Discontinuity: X-Men: The Last Stand may have been erased through the Cosmic Retcon, but it's featured in flashback scenes and its existence is at least acknowledged. X-Men Origins: Wolverine however (aside from a flashback scene from Victor crushing Logan's claws), is very hard to reconcile with the events shown: William Stryker is played by a younger actor and holds a different rank and job, which could be just The Other Darrin, and all of Wolverine's flashbacks to his adamantium coating come from X2. In addition, it's strongly implied that he doesn't know Wolverine yet, and this movie takes place around the end of the America's involvement The Vietnam War, but according to Origins they met during it. It is possible that Origins had yet to occur as Stryker had seen Logan and went to find him. In The Last Stand, Bolivar Trask is played by Bill Duke, a 6' 4" plump black man while in Days of Future Past he is played by Peter Dinklage, a 4' 5" white man. Many assumed that Duke's Trask in the The Last Stand was indeed Bolivar Trask, however his first name was never confirmed as he was only referred to as "Trask." As a result, Duke's Trask has been retconned into "Secretary Trask" whereas Dinklage is confirmed as the true Bolivar Trask. Wolverine in the Bad Future still has his adamantium claws, despite having lost them in The Wolverine. Word of God said since Wolverine in the Bad Future is working with Magneto, he could have recoated Wolverine's claws if he desired. Also, his character is depicted as The Heart rather than a walking knife, which is an extension of his Character Development in that film.

Mood Whiplash
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_a4c37cbe
comment
Mood Whiplash: The 1973 scenes in the first act are filled with jokes and humorous moments (such as Quicksilver's antics) which clash with the bleak tone of the 2023 scenes and the somber mood of acts 2 and 3. In fact, the 1973 scenes in general can come across as this. Even during their darkest moments, the more colorful backdrops and blatantly '70s hairstyles, clothes and aesthetics can be jarring.

Ascended Extra
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_a65288e2
comment
Ascended Extra: A Sentinel (with a different design to the Mark 1 of 1973 or Mark X of 2023 in this film) very briefly appeared as part of a holographic Danger Room exercise during X-Men: The Last Stand but only its decapitated head (courtesy of Wolverine) was seen clearly. Here, Sentinels are the horrifying main adversaries that the 2023 X-Men face and the earlier versions also form part of the opposition that the 1973 cast have to confront as well. Similar to First Class, Mystique has a major role in the story compared to being primarily a henchwoman in the original films. Being played by Jennifer Lawrence helps there. There are no explicit contradictions, it's only that the two different portrayals are hard to reconcile (Rebecca Romijn's Mystique was silent and coldly loyal to Magneto, Lawrence's Mystique is much more emotional and independent). Then again, being captured and experimented on in the original timeline as well as years of killing most likely lead her to become much colder.

Karma Houdini: Nixon and his cabinet were perfectly happy for Trask to build an army of robots capable of genocide. The worst they get is a bit of a scare from Magneto's attack. Yes, they changed their mind, but they went along with a guy planning genocide right until their own lives were saved by mutants. (They don't even arrest Trask for torture and vivisection, just for selling military secrets.)

Dramatic Irony
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_ab5eea65
comment
Dramatic Irony: 1973 Magneto is the most unsympathetic portrayal yet, while the future Magneto is the first time he's shown as an outright hero. Near the end, Magneto in 1973 attempts to assassinate the president on live television in order to start a race war, and Magneto in 2023, dying from injuries obtained in a Last Stand, regrets that he wasted so many years fighting with Xavier and reconciles with him. Trask sees mutants as a common enemy which can unite all the human race and end the Cold War. In the Bad Future, Trask's inventions have become the common enemy that united all the mutants. He also says that they are programmed to attack only mutants, when the audience is told earlier that they started attacking everyone.

comment
Retcon: X-Men: The Last Stand features a man named Trask as the head of homeland security, who was originally intended to be the Bolivar Trask of this continuity. However, with the release of this film, "Secretary Trask" retroactively becomes a different character who just happens to have the same last name.

The Champion
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_b26ca4f5
comment
The Champion: Hank puts his entire life on hold for a decade in order to assist and defend the emotionally dysfunctional Charles. Since McCoy is no longer Professor X's student, they both should be on equal footing, yet Beast continues to readily defer to Xavier's authority. This steadfast devotion demonstrates that Hank values Charles' well-being and safety above his own.

The younger Xavier is a shadow of his former self and hides from the outside world after he loses the people he loves, his Only Friend is a "beast," he lets his hair grow long and has a Beard of Sorrow... which is the same state Logan was in at beginning of The Wolverine. Both characters reject being addressed by their title/codename.

Both characters reject being addressed by their title/codename. There are numerous references to X2: X-Men United, which include Xavier and Magneto uniting to prevent a potential mutant genocide, Mystique sneaking into the Big Bad's office to steal information, Magneto's non-metal prison (and guards with plastic weapons), weaponized metal balls, and turning a device created to destroy mutants against its human creators: Dark Cerebro in X2, the Sentinels here.

People Puppets: Xavier possesses various people around Mystique at the airport to talk to her in a casual display of how creepy his power can be when he gets creative. He temporarily prevents Mystique's body from moving once he determines that she's pretending to be a secret service agent, although he still permits her to speak. President Nixon, his cabinet and Trask are put on "pause" when Charles tells Raven he won't push her anymore and that she's free to decide Trask's fate. After the climax, he also controls Magneto when Mystique knocks the latter's helmet off to free himself from the metal debris that fell on him earlier.

Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Hank, per First Class, is not only an accomplished engineer but a skilled biologist. He's improved on the latter, as his serum now works as intended (more or less). Trask seems to be a pioneer robotist, building robots that work in the 1970s, but he is also a skilled biologist, who can study mutants and understand how their powers work at the cellular level.

comment
Demoted to Extra: Rogue only appears in a non-speaking cameo and doesn't even get a close-up. This is because all her other scenes were cut out and then restored on The Rogue Cut Blu-Ray/DVD release. Havok is rescued by Mystique near the beginning and never shows up afterwards. At least he survived, unlike the rest of the First Class cast, with everyone who didn't appear in the earlier/canonically later films being unceremoniously killed off between films. Storm kicks some serious ass, but gets little screen time overall, and doesn't have many lines until midway into the movie. Compared to the prominence of her role in the comic version of "Days of Future Past", Kitty Pryde's part is mostly being the means by which Wolverine gets into the past.

Power Nullifier: When Logan first arrives in the past, Charles doesn't have his psychic powers to verify his story or make their mission easier. This is because he's taking a serum that lets him walk, at the expense of suppressing his telepathy. Considering the Heroic BSoD he's in the middle of, he doesn't mind. The same serum lets Beast look normal with no apparent ill effects, but it has to be taken periodically by both of them. Nullification collars are used in the Bad Future on mutants in the Sentinel-controlled camps.

Subverted with Wolverine's fight with the mafia goons. The audience and Wolverine himself believes that it won't even be a problem for him, but then we learn that Wolverine doesn't have his adamantium (which besides making his claws super-sharp, also protect him from a headshot and absorb the impacts of the bullets). Wolverine still wins fairly easily (he's still Immune to Bullets because of his Healing Factor), but it's not entirely one-sided.

Pretentious Latin Motto: If you do a Freeze-Frame Bonus on the Xavier coat of arms, located on the tail of Charles' personal plane, the family motto reads, "Fratrem tuum adjuva," which means "Help your brother." Not only does this fit Professor X's compassionate personality to a tee, but it also suggests that his Old Money ancestors on his father's side were philanthropists. Assisting those who are less fortunate must have been regarded as a sacred duty, as those Latin words supposedly designate what the Xavier family values the most.

Playing Gertrude: Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were given ageing make-up because their characters are roughly fifteen years older than they are. Kitty Pryde, somewhat. The viral website states the events of X-Men: The Last Stand occurred in 2006 when Kitty appeared to be, at the most, in her mid-teens. The Bad Future is said to occur in or very close to 2023, putting Kitty in her early 30s even though the films were released just 8 years apart and Ellen Page was 26 during filming. Magneto is somewhere in the area of twenty to twenty-five years older than Peter, while Michael Fassbender is only a decade older than Evan Peters.

Deus Exit Machina: Quicksilver easily takes out the guards in Magneto's prison, and is faster than anybody, even two powerful mutants — and one with enhanced senses — can react. Combining him with Xavier in locating either Trask or Mystique would've wrapped the plot up in far shorter time and with at least half the damage. So naturally, he's out of the story once the break-out scene is over, save for a cameo near the end.

Non-Action Guy: 1973 Charles invokes this trope to explain to Logan why he always tries to talk his way out of a problem (even if it results in ineffective rambling) instead using brute force. However, Xavier can still throw a mean punch if someone really pisses him off despite not being much of a fighter.

Just Plane Wrong: A downplayed example. While the Gulfstream II, the plane the X-Men use to fly to Paris, was first manufactured in the 1960s, the wingletsnote the vertical surfaces on the tips of the wings seen on this particular example were not part of the original design and were first available as an aftermarket retrofit in the 1990's (though much like the Blackbirdnote the SR-71 was still in development at the time of First Class was set, and neither it nor the Lockheed A-12 from which it was derived were VTOL-capable as the X-Men's jet is this is justifiable by Xavier's immense personal fortune and Hank's engineering know-how allowing for a custom, one-off modification). Also, the plane's tail number of N540EA reveals that it was manufactured in 1975, two years after the setting of the film.

He lost Raven and Erik, Sean had disappeared several years prior (and is later confirmed dead at the hands of Trask), then most of his teachers and students were drafted, leaving Charles alone except for Hank. He's taking a serum designed by Hank that suppresses his powers and restores the use of his legs just so he can sleep at night without feeling other people's pain.

Everybody Lives: In the Good Future, everyone seen to die in the Bad Future is saved, and indeed, so too are a great many characters who died in previous films. Several supporting characters from First Class remain dead, but since that happened between movies it's not material.

Hypocrite
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_d52d28b6
comment
Hypocrite: At the climax of the movie, Past Magneto has his most blatant moment of hypocrisy in the entire film series. After all the bravado both before and after about protecting mutantkind, he deliberately pits a Sentinel against Wolverine and Beast, ordering it to "do what you were made for." In the plane, Magneto calls Xavier out for abandoning the mutants out there to be killed or experimented on. Given how X-Men: First Class ends, Xavier can reasonably say that Beast, Havok, Banshee, and himself (who was newly shot in the spine) could have easily ended up as guinea pigs for either the US or the Soviet Union because Magneto left them stranded in Cuba with no transportation. Throughout both films, Charles is often criticized or distrusted by those around him for using his telepathy. Considering Erik's and Raven's out-and-proud stances on mutantkind, it is very hypocritical that either of them would request that he create a block between them (Raven most specifically) and his mind, especially since it's implied several times that brushing against people's minds is an innate part of Charles' mutation that he can't just shut off. After they're reunited, Erik again criticizes Charles for taking a telepathy-blocking drug that allows him to sleep since it drowns out all of the voices that are constantly bombarding his mind.

In Wolverine's own words, the Sentinels were created to kill mutants, but then moved on to anyone with the potential to breed more mutants, then anyone who tried to aid the mutants (insert WWII analogy here). The "very worst of humanity" are all that remain, ruling over the Sentinels.

Prone to Tears: Past Xavier's psychological health is so poor that the slightest thing can upset him, and he's regularly seen with wet, reddened eyes or tears streaming down his face. Unlike most male examples of this trope, it's Played for Drama, not for laughs.

Portal Cut: Blink takes off a Sentinel's arm when one of her portals closes on it. Unfortunately, it closes because said arm has just stabbed her. If the X-Men had thought to weaponize this, as it is one of the few things that unambiguously damages a Future Sentinel, they might have actually had a chance against them.

Action Girl: Storm is the first strike against the Sentinels because of her weather powers. Blink's powers make her extremely effective in fighting the Sentinels, both in taking them out herself and assisting the others in fighting them. On a more meta level, Mystique is the only mutant back in the past who has been doing anything for the last few years. (Magneto was stuck in the Pentagon for a decade, and Xavier has been moping around the house since the start of The Vietnam War.) Even once the plot takes off, she's arguably the most active character.

Adaptation Name Change
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_dc057cf3
comment
Adaptation Name Change: Quicksilver's real name is changed from "Pietro Maximoff" to the more Americanized "Peter Maximoff." This is due to the fact that the film version of Quicksilver was raised in the U.S., while his comic counterpart grew up in Eastern Europe. A supplementary website, 25 Moments, still refers to him as Pietro and so does the Italian dub. Colossus is more complicated. Originally he was Piotr Rasputin and the film changed this to Peter Rasputin. Then again, he's called Peter in the comics by most people anyway. "Peter" is the Anglicized version of their names in any case.

Reasonable Authority Figure
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_dca70c44
comment
Reasonable Authority Figure: The head Congressman who's against Trask's Sentinel project. The incident from ten years ago notwithstanding, mutants are a very small portion of the population and haven't been causing trouble.note For statistics nerds, his "tenth of a tenth of a tenth" line against 1973 figures would put the U.S. mutant population at ~211,900. Richard Nixon himself gets this treatment, unlike most examples. While he does go along with the Sentinel Program, it's out of a desire to protect the nation from super-powered beings rather than any genuine malice. When Mystique saves his life from Magneto, it's implied he gave her a pardon and jailed Trask for trying to sell secrets to America's enemies.

Do with Him as You Will: Mystique stuns Magneto and takes his helmet off, leaving him for Xavier. It's less brutal than most instances of the trope, since Mystique knows that Xavier won't hurt Magneto if he can avoid it.

Monumental Damage: In 2023 Moscow, the Kremlin and other Red Square monuments are in shambles (although scaffolding indicates someone is at least trying to repair it). Magneto uses one national monument as a weapon against another in the climax. Specifically, he picks up RFK Stadium, levitates it across DC, and drops it in a circle around the White House. Later in the fight, he pulls a panic room out from under the White House through the walls and floors to get at the people inside it.

A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_ddfb4e53
comment
A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: When Charles was in between 9 and 12 years old, he was Hearing Voices and wasn't aware that he was telepathic, so he had assumed that he was going mad from an acute mental illness. His past self is so broken that it's torture for him to be bombarded by the thoughts of others, and he uses a serum designed by Hank to block out the ceaseless "chatter" in his head. In order to visit his future self, Xavier has to go through Wolverine's mind, which is full of traumatic memories; it's a pretty shocking experience for him. Likewise, when he attempts to use Cerebro, all he can sense is people crying out all over the world in loneliness and pain.

Angel (Warren Worthington III) is the only X-Man killed in the Bad Future not to appear in the Alternate Timeline. In fact, he doesn't appear in the movie at all. Even future Beast, who debuted in the same movie as Angel, got to make a cameo! This is explained in X-Men: Apocalypse: in the alternate timeline, Angel became Archangel, one of Apocalypse's Four Horsemen, and was killed during a fight with that timeline's fledgling X-Men.

Decoy Protagonist: Although Wolverine starts out as the main character, Charles Xavier is The Hero of the movie. Wolverine's primary role is to simply help motivate the younger Charles to change the future. When the final battle begins, Magneto simply impales him with rebar and throws him into a nearby river, quickly ending his importance in the film.

Uncomfortable Elevator Moment
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_df4b69d6
comment
Uncomfortable Elevator Moment: Happens between the just-freed Erik, Peter and the duct-taped guard. Erik feels dizzy as the result of being carried by Peter in his Super Speed mode. Peter then asks Erik whether he's done a serious crime in an annoying tone (which after Erik sheepishly answers, Peter expresses his awe to the duct-taped guard who responds in kind with his eyebrows as if he wanted to say "Told ya this guy is a bad news" to Peter). The young mutant inquires whether Erik knows karate (which Erik cheekily responds with "I don't know karate, but I know crazy"), whether Erik can control metal, and finally he tells Erik that his mom once knew a guy who could also do that. Erik seems to realize at this point that this pesky teen might be his son.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_df582b0b
comment
Continuity Snarl: A justified example involving Ripple-Proof Memory. Prior to the release of the film, producer Lauren Donner Schuler went on record saying that the film made X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: The Last Stand non-canon. However, the film still references Logan's memories using scenes from X-Men: The Last Stand, and from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, namely Logan killing Jean at Alcatraz and finding Kayla "dead" in the forest. This is because it is established early on in the film that if Wolverine is successful, he will still remember the timeline that leads to the war with the Sentinels, which still exists, up until it diverges when Mystique no longer kills Trask. He himself points this by saying the history he knows is different than what new Xavier knows.

Historical In-Joke: Nixon is shown deactivating a tape recorder prior to his discussion with Trask, both referencing the recording system that would eventually lead to his downfall and providing an explanation for those recordings missing 18 minutes. Magneto being present at the assassination of JFK, and taking credit for causing the bullet to "curve mid-air", although he claims that he was actually trying to save the president, since JFK was also a mutant.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_e3c36782
comment
Call-Forward: 1973 Erik's "Imagine if [your claws] were metal" remark to Logan. When '70s Erik goes to retrieve his helmet from the Pentagon, he's shown wearing a fedora and dark suit ensemble very similar to Magneto's civilian appearance in the first X-Men film. He also uses small metal balls, like in X2. When Logan passes through a metal detector, he's briefly surprised that it doesn't go off. It doubles as a Call-Back to the first X-Men film and also to The Wolverine. It's used for Dramatic Irony when Trask says to Stryker that by the time the upcoming human-mutant war arrives, his son will be old enough to fight in it. Stryker's son does become a victim of this war, as he's a mutant and his own father turns on him. In his New Era Speech, 1973 Magneto mentions "a Brotherhood of our kind." In the finale, Beast uses a handful of hypodermic needles of his serum to supress his mutant genes, in order to hide from a Sentinel's sensors. In the finale of X-Men: The Last Stand, Beast uses a handful of hypodermic needles of a different serum to suppress Magneto's mutant genes and gain the upper hand on Alcatraz. Mystique uses her shapeshifting skills to break into Bolivar Trask's office to get files on mutants. She would do this again years later, when infiltrating Lady Deathstrike's office in X2: X-Men United.

Composite Character: The future Sentinels are the fusion of the regular Sentinels with the Nimrod Sentinel's Adaptive Ability. Rachel Summers's role in the original comic (sending the time-traveler back) is given to Kitty Pryde, while Kitty Pryde's role (as the time-traveler) is given to Wolverine. Bolivar Trask is given Senator Kelly's role from the original story. Quicksilver looks and acts like his nephew, Speed, and even wears a similar pair of goggles. The mutant soldier who appears in the camp alongside Havok, Toad and Ink has Spyke's surname (Daniels), Quill's porcupine spines protruding from his face, and Vertigo's ability to render people unconscious.

Determinator: The conversation between Erik and Logan, in the past, when the latter refers to them both as being a "survivor." Unfortunately for Logan, the younger Magneto is able to prove his superiority in battle when he impales him with pipes and sends off to drown with a taunt of how unlike a survivor he is compared to Magneto. Kitty, who must keep the link open, is stabbed by Logan when his present body reacts violently to mental trauma in the past. Due to how time runs concurrently in the past and present, it's implied that it takes a few days before Logan and co. can properly stop Mystique, which means that she is slowly bleeding out and can't sleep for that period. In The Rogue Cut, Kitty also proves capable of moving from the main room of the X-Men's hideaway, grabbing an injured Magneto and bringing him through the door during the final battle, while still bleeding. Mystique is on a one-woman crusade. Throughout the film she finds more and more damning evidence that Trask really needs to be killed. It's not until the very end that Charles manages to talk her out of it. The Prototype Sentinel that goes after Magneto definitely is this. Even as it's being torn to pieces, it still tries to grab him.

Old Money: Past Charles can afford not to work for a decade because he can simply mooch off his inherited wealth. The Xavier family crest on the tail of his personal plane, his plane's elegantly decorated interior, and even the design of the chess set he brings along for the trip are a visual cue to the audience that he is this trope, and not the tacky (or so the stereotype goes) Nouveau Riche.

Humongous Mecha
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_e6f18344
comment
In the comics, the Sentinels are just Humongous Mecha, and mutants with strong powers note the X-Men in the comics are much stronger than in the movies, with Storm, Magneto, Iceman, and Xavier being planetary threats usually take them down by the dozen. They are portrayed roughly as such in the 1973 portion of this movie as well. The future Sentinels, however, are a Composite Character with Nimrod, an advanced Sentinel that racked up a significant body count over the years in the comics. The difference is that there's dozens of them in the movie and Conservation of Ninjutsu is not in effect: with their ability to duplicate mutant powers to counter their opponents, they are so overwhelmingly powerful that any fight with them is considered outright hopeless.

Everyone has long hair, drives funky cars, and wears garish colors, Hank McCoy is proud of developing a way to record "all three networks and PBS" at once, and Sentinels are described as being made from a "space age polymer." Seventies pop music is also prominent.

The Unmasqued World: The existence of mutants was already known within some government organizations (in fact, they had Magneto in prison), but the world at large ignored it. Then, the peace talks for Vietnam were interrupted when a blue woman that could shapeshift jumped from the window, followed by a man that controlled metals with a gesture and a blue feral man. And, as if that was not enough, this mutant levitated a stadium across a state, hurled it against the White House, extracted the panic room from it, and gave a New Era Speech for the television. Now, absolutely everybody knows about mutants.

 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_ec7da60a
comment
Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Magneto shot JFK. Who else could make the bullet curve? Magneto claims that he was actually trying to save him because JFK was a mutant, but was interrupted by an unidentified party. This movie is an odd example of this trope, because while this specific example falls under Plausible Deniability, the movie and series overall are clearly set in a reality that Never Was This Universe with a radically Alternate History. According to the writer, the example of Plausible Deniability is likely true, and JFK's mutant power was probably some form of telepathy for persuasion.

Drama-Preserving Handicap: At various points in the movie, the most powerful mutants are incapacitated or kept from using their powers to full extent, thus allowing the plot to advance. This includes Xavier losing his mental powers due to the effects of the drug which allows him to walk, Wolverine dazed by flashbacks of being tortured by Stryker and allowing Magneto and Mystique to escape (as well as missing his Adamantium), Magneto kept in a prison of concrete and plastic, etc.

comment
Undying Loyalty: There are plenty of other things that Hank could do with his time, yet he chooses to stay by Xavier's side, taking care of him during the latter's decade-long Heroic BSoD. Hank may even be a little too loyal because he serves as Charles' enabler by providing a serum which worsens his friend's already bad case of substance abuse. Wolverine has developed this for Xavier during the Time Skip after the post-credits scene of The Wolverine. Although both Magneto and Professor X are co-leaders of the remaining mutants in 2023, Logan only defers to Charles' authority. When Erik tells him that, "You'll need me as well [in the past]," Wolverine is wholly against the idea, but he reluctantly agrees after Xavier nods in approval.

War Is Hell: The first scene's sole purpose is to demonstrate just how terrible the world has become for mutants and humans who carry the X-gene after regular humans began eradicating them. The "lucky" ones are imprisoned in a concentration camp, and the rest are slain en masse by Sentinels. The remnants of the X-Men and the Free Mutants appear to be the only resistance group left standing, and they're painfully aware that they're on the losing side of this war.

Unkempt Beauty: Charles' appearance in 1973 is rather sloppy and disheveled, especially in comparison to the other movies, yet he is still an attractive man.

Product Placement: Quicksilver is shown to be a fan of Hostess Twinkies and Ding-Dongs. In real life, Hostess released a line of Days of Future Past-themed Twinkies to promote the movie. A drink order is called, specifically for a bottle of Johnnie Walker (which blend is yet unclear). Also it would appear that all other bottles of whiskey in the film are likewise Johnnie Walker, of which quite a lot is drunk, especially by Charles Xavier. When Magneto lifts up RFK Stadium, ads for Mountain Dew, Adidas, and various other brands can be seen, though this can be at least partly justified by the fact that sports stadiums do in fact have lots of advertising on and around them. Kind of interesting that there's no advertising visible of any companies that have since gone out of business, though...

Zigzagged with the 1973 Sentinels. Magneto laces the prototypes with iron so he can control their movements and use them as weapons, but he can't really affect their programming. One Sentinel tries to kill Erik when it gets the chance.

Happy Flashback
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_fadf1efc
comment
Happy Flashback: 1973 Charles briefly reminisces about the first time he met Raven, which was a much happier and more innocent period of his life than his current state of abject misery and self-destruction. One difference between his memory of the event and what we saw in First Class is that Charles as a kid never said, "And that's a promise" right after he told Raven that she would never have to steal again.

Magneto uses his metal-controlling powers to stitch his head wound and to raise the volume control knob on the television set.

Talking to Themself: Future Charles and Past Charles are able to have a heartfelt conversation, with the former ultimately reviving the latter's broken resolve.

Living Emotional Crutch
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_fbd1aeb
comment
Living Emotional Crutch: Hank is this to the dispirited Charles; the latter is so desperate to escape from his mental pain that he would most likely have died from alcohol poisoning if McCoy wasn't around to supervise him. But it works the other way around, too, as the approval-seeking Hank has voluntarily suppressed his individuality (i.e. he has no career, hobby, or social life) just to attend to Xavier's needs 24/7, and is thus defining himself exclusively through his dutiful service to his ex-mentor. These are strong indicators that they are both trapped in an unhealthy codependent relationship.

Comically Missing the Point
 X-Men: Days of Future Past / int_fbd285b7
comment
Comically Missing the Point: When Hank unveils his set-up so that any mention of what happened in Paris on TV is recorded, he proudly notes that it'll record from all three networks and PBS. Logan, coming from a future where there are far more than three networks, makes a sarcastic comment about it. Hank, not understanding what Logan is getting at, gets slightly offended and reiterates he's also got it set-up to record PBS.

Also, averting Artistic License – Physics in at least a few cases, Quicksilver knows to hold Erik's head so he doesn't get "whiplaaaash," and he wears goggles to protect his eyes while at superspeed.

My Future Self and Me: Unable to cope with his powers, to use them properly and deal with all the stress caused by the things at stake, and with a guy like Wolverine who can't be anyone's mentor, Charles Xavier got the help of the best mentor that Wolverine knows about: Charles Xavier! To accomplish this, 1973 Xavier reads his mind until he can manifest outside of Wolverine's future body, and talk with his future self.

Innocently Insensitive: After Mystique escapes the peace conference, she is outed as a mutant on the news. She manages to get to a hospital and get her leg bandaged in her normal human guise. The nurse who is doing it is watching the earlier footage and pities Mystique's appearance, wondering "It must be hard waking up each day and seeing that in a mirror." Ouch.

Shown Their Work: Quicksilver's cassette player? The one that everyone was deriding as "unrealistic" and "not existing till the '80s"? Turns out it's a real thing that was patented but never developed beyond the prototype phase. Also, averting Artistic License – Physics in at least a few cases, Quicksilver knows to hold Erik's head so he doesn't get "whiplaaaash," and he wears goggles to protect his eyes while at superspeed.
