How can they make such a big mistake ?????????

Hey Lotters !! Yes its true. I didn't expect this from a hollywood director, and that too of the movie X-men. So here's the blunder. X-men series have been a classic and they've been entertaining us since the last decade. As about their president or prime minister, you may get a delayed response but there's not even a single teenager on this planet who hasn't heard the name of "Wolverine"... :p We all know that "X-MEN - Origins Wolverine" was a masterpiece and the following part "X-MEN- First Class" equally matched its fame. But what I wanna draw your attention towards is the endings of both the movies, and particularly towards "Dr. Xavier". In "X-men first class" the professor lost his legs due to magneto's mistake. Though it was unintentional but sadly thats the truth. Now flashback to the ending of "X men Origins wolverine". When Cyclops leads the prisoned mutants to the escape listening to a strange voice in his head, they come across a helicopter. And guess what, who descends from the helicopter. Its professor X. But wait a sec !! Its seen that professor's legs are totally fine. Indeed he is walking down the helicopter to help the kids aboard the helicopter. Now thats some serious mistake !!!

Wow your right. I totally forgot about that part but it's true. Of course the movie Wolverine came out before XMen:Origins, but still they should have made it where Pro. Xavier lost the ability to use his legs later on in life instead of when he was still very young. They still could have made it where it was Magneto's mistake that caused him to lose the use of his legs but just not allow it to happen when they were both still young. Most especially since your right it doesn't fit in with the Wolverine movie ending. Good eye by the way for catching that. Of course I haven't watched Wolverine since I went & saw the movie XMen:Origins, but I'm still not sure I were have caught on to that.

In movies like X-men, there's a lot going on the radar. A lot of short stories have to be covered, for each and every individual character. So you need to be precise in your display of those stories so as to portray those characters accurately. Its up to the directors which part of the story would they like to cover. Nevertheless,its always going to be an awesome adventure at the theaters.

Hey John ! Yeah, its true that its a total fiction but here we are talking about joining different pieces of the story together. For a movie series to be a hit, you need to properly arrange all the pieces of the story together in a sinc even if it's a si-fi one, so as to make sense to the audience.

"First Class" Can't be taken as being in the same Canon as X1,X2,and "Wolverine"..there are too many differences in what goes on in "First Class" for it to be a prequel... X1 set out that Magneto Helped Prof X build the "Cerebro" Machine..but in "First Class",We're introduced to "Beast"/Hank McCoy,who's credited with building Cerebro..AND responsible for the X-Plane,though a different one from that seen in X1 and X2..And "First Class" also sets up a back story for Xavier and "Mystique"/Raven which was never referred to in X1 or 2...And there's THAT cameo in "First Class",a meeting between Magneto,Xavier, and someone they meet,that happens again for the first time in X1..

I watched Wolverine Origins with my kids for the first time last night, and I noticed that Professor X had legs. I thought I had just missed something because I haven't seen all of the X-men movies. But now I found your post and discovered I was right--it IS a mistake. Thanks for clearing that up for me!
