I saw X-Men: First Class earlier today and am hoping to have my review for you tomorrow morning, but one thing I will tell you, and am likely to repeat in my review, is the film plays like a superhero version of an old school James Bond film with all the morals the X-verse has always brought us with definite leanings toward the first two Bryan Singer films.
I’d like to say more, but I’d rather gather my thoughts so I’ll let you think on that for a bit while you gaze into eyes of Jennifer Lawrence who plays Raven (aka Mystique) as she looks on while James McAvoy as Charles Xavier dons Cerebro for the first time.

X-Men First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
