"When an individual acquires great power, the use or misuse of that power is everything,
will it be used for the greater good or will it be used for personal or destructive ends?
Now this is a question we must all ask ourselves. why, because we are mutants."
In this day and age, mutants walk among us. However, their presence has frightened the American public and their leaders. Mutants face persecution from many different groups, including religious and political groups. Together, Charles Xavier and Erik Lensher formed the Brotherhood of Mutants, a group of mutants that would act as a safe haven for mutants who were being persecuted by the rest of the world. However, over time, Charles and Erik realized they had different goals. On one hand, Charles wanted peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants, while Erik wanted mutant dominance over the world.
It wasn't long until Charles left the brotherhood after an intense battle that left him paralyzed. It became his goal to create a school to help mutants master and control their mutant powers as well as teaching them to live in peace with humans.
However, it wasn't long until the Brotherhood of Mutants made their move on humanity. Erik or rather Magneto and his Brotherhood began a series of terrorist attacks on Washington D.C. and New York City. The humans responded with their own weapon to combat the mutant threat, THE SENTINEL. The Sentinel is an advanced android able to detect the mutant gene and eliminate it.
With these new weapons and Magneto gathering more allies, the world has become a powder keg ready to explode into a war between mutants and humans. The only thing standing between the two are a group Charles is assembling, The X-Men.
