Born into a world filled with prejudice are children who possess extraordinary and dangerous powers - the result of unique genetic mutations. Cyclops unleases bolts of energy from his eyes. Storm can manipulate the weather at will. Rogue absorbs the life force of anyone she touches. But under the tutalage of Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), these and other outcasts learn to harness their powers for the good of mankind. Now they must protect those who fear them as the nefarious Magneto (Ian McKellan), who believes humans and mutants can never co-exist, unveils his sinister plan for the future.

Easter Eggs...


From the disc's main menu go to the Trailers and TV Spots section. Once there, press the left arrow key on your remote control and you will highlight the rose in the upper left corner of the screen. Now press 'Enter' and you will get to see a hilarious practical joke scene in which the X-Men meet another superhero from the comic books!

The second hidden feature can be found in the Art Gallery on the disc. At the bottom of the screen you will see Wolverine's dog tags that can be selected using your remote control. Highlight them and press 'Enter' and you will get to see character designs for Beast and the Blob, both X-Men characters that did not make it into this film but may make their appearance in the sequel.

If you select the 'Special Features' option on the DVD and then select 'Theatrical Trailers & TV Spots' and then press the left arrow on your remote, a symbol of a rose should be highlighted. If you now press Enter you will be treated to a brief 'joke' scene featuring Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm with a special guest appearance by a certain wall-crawling web slinger.
