Director: Bryan Singer

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Famke Janssen, Bruce Davison, James Marsden, Halle Berry, Rebecca Romijn, Ray Park, Tyler Mane

Adapted from the most popular Marvel comics of the 1990s, The X-Men are a group of genetic mutants with amazing abilities, brought together and trained by the world’s most powerful telepath, Professor Charles Xavier to help fight for his dream – a world where the mutant minority and human majority can live together in harmony – to be judged not by the fancy powers they possess, but by the content of their character. However, the Mutant Master of Magnetism, Magneto, scarred by the human brutality he’s experienced, has come to believe the mutant race is superior to humanity, and should rule over them as their betters, and he’s amassed a brotherhood of like-minded mutants to help achieve his goals by any means necessary. With anti-mutant sentiment prevailing at every turn, the X-Men strive to protect the very humans that fear and hate them.

Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier / Professor X: The mutant founder of the X-Men and the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, who hopes for peaceful coexistence between mutantkind and mankind and is regarded as an authority on genetic mutation. Although restricted to a wheelchair, his mutant powers include vast telepathy, which is amplified by the Cerebro supercomputer that he invented with Magneto’s help.

Ian McKellen as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto: A mutant Holocaust survivor who was once friends with Xavier (who he helped build Cerebro), until his belief that humans and mutants could never co-exist led to their separation. His mutant powers include powerful magnetic fields, metal manipulation, and a sophisticated knowledge in matters of genetic manipulation, which he uses to plan a mutation of the world leaders to allow mutant prosperity.

Hugh Jackman as Logan / Wolverine: A mutant Canadian loner who makes a living in cage fights and has lived for fifteen years without memory of who he is, apart from his dog tags marked “Wolverine” and an adamantium-encased skeleton. His mutant powers include enhanced, animal-like senses and the ability to heal rapidly from numerous injuries, including the surgery that bonded the metal to his skeleton, which makes his age impossible to determine.

Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe / Storm: A Kenyan teacher at the X-Mansion who has become bitter with other people’s hatred for mutants, and while comforting a dying Senator Kelly says that she sometimes hates humans, but mostly because she is afraid of them. Her mutant powers include weather manipulation.

Famke Janssen as Dr. Jean Grey: The doctor of the X-Mansion who has a romantic relationship with Cyclops. Her mutant powers include telekinesis and telepathy that are similar to but much less advanced than that of Xavier’s, as displayed when she is stunned by the usage of Cerebro.

Anna Paquin as Marie / Rogue: A seventeen-year-old girl forced to leave her home in Mississippi when she puts her boyfriend into a coma by kissing him. Her mutant powers include absorbing anyone’s memories, life force, and, in the case of mutants, powers through physical touch.

James Marsden as Scott Summers / Cyclops: Xavier’s second-in-command and the X-Men’s field leader, as well as an instructor at the Institute. He is in love with Jean Grey and has a relationship with her. His mutant powers include a strong red beam of force shooting from his eyes, which is only held in check by sunglasses or a specialized ruby-quartz visor, which also enables him to control the strength of the beam to fire when in combat.

Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as Raven Darkhölme / Mystique: Magneto’s loyal second-in-command, who seems completely facile with respect to modern technology. Her mutant powers include altering her shape and mimicking any human being, which is almost secondary to her role as “the perfect soldier”.

Captain America (1979)

Director: Rod Holcomb

Cast: Reb Brown, Len Birman, Heather Menzies-Urich

Steve Rogers is a character in contemporary times whose father was a 1940s government agent. The very patriotic attitude of Steve’s father earned him the nickname Captain America, and his father is spoken of as having been murdered. Rogers, a former Marine now making what little living he makes as an artist, is inspired by this story to sketch a super-hero. After receiving potentially fatal injuries in an accident, he is administered an experimental chemical called the FLAG — Full Latent Ability Gain—formula (at one point referred to as a “super-steroid”) which not only saves his life but also enhances his body with heightened strength and reflexes. These new abilities lead Dr. Simon Mills (Len Birman), the research biochemist and intelligence official who had told Rogers about his father, to recruit him and give Steve a costume based on his drawing. As Captain America, he also makes significant use of a specialized reconstruction of the van he has been driving, out the rear of which can be launched a modified motorcycle. Its functions include a rocket thrust for a fast start out of the van, a jet boost for increased speed, a setting to allow the bike to be ridden with less noise for stealthier movement and a hang glider structure which can allow the bike to glide to the ground with some forward momentum, although it must be jettisoned upon landing.
