IN SHORT: Just a buncha kids having a good time... until the missles start flyin'. [Rated . minutes]

X-Men created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Uncanny X-Men created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum (and if we didn't mention Chris Claremont and John Byrne in the same breath, we'd have to turn in our fanboy badge). Darwin created by Ed Brubaker.

Erik Lensherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) + Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence)
Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) + Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne)

Banshee, Beast, Havok, Mystique, Moira MacTaggert,

On average, a first run movie ticket will run you Ten Bucks. Were Cranky able to set his own price to X-Men: First Class, he would have paid . . .
