Embedded with fierce action and futuristic fantasy, this thrilling tale follows the adventures of the X-Men as they battle to protect humankind from powerful, rogue mutants who attempt to unleash terror and destruction.
Ably led by Professor Charles Xavier and his team, must take the help of new recruits The Beast and Angel, and face off against evolution itself in the form of their former teammate, Jean Grey. Possessed with the cosmic power of the Dark Phoenix, the resurrected Jean Grey has become a danger to herself, her mutant comrades, and the entire planet.
To stave off this imminent threat to humanity, a potential cure is discovered and processed to treat -- and ultimately eliminate -- genetic mutations, once and for all. Now, as the battle lines are drawn, the X-Men, must contend with both Jean Grey's world-consuming powers, as well as the malevolent Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
