‘Is The Future Truly Set?’
So many battles waged over the years… and yet, none like this. Are we destined to destroy each other, or can we change each other and unite? Is the future truly set? – Professor X
Time: past, present, future, changing fate, super powers … all themes I love.
The X-Men send Wolverine to the past (1973) in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.
Overall the film was average but the concept was great and held significant meaning for me.
Charles Xavier: The past: a new and uncertain world. A world of endless possibilities and infinite outcomes. Countless choices define our fate: each choice, each moment, a moment in the ripple of time. Enough ripple, and you change the tide… for the future is never truly set.
