X-Men will come to the MCU soon. Disney has acquired 20th century Fox, which means that MCU can expand its properties and explore new possibilities with characters like Silver Surfer, Fantastic Four, and X-Men. The possible storylines are endless by joining these characters to the existing MCU. Fans are waiting to see what Disney and Marvel do with the X-Men Universe. Many of the stories will make for fantastic movie storylines:
The First Class
It is an 8 issue limited series. The series explored the untold stories in the lives of Cyclops, Beast, Marvel Girl, Iceman, and Angel – Xavier’s X-Men. The first X-team movie would explore the lives of these original five members. If MCU wants, later in the story, it could also introduce Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, etc, but it’ll be great to start with the original five.
Master Mold And The Sentinels
The Master Mold is a Sentinel creating machine. The Sentinels are powerful opponents, but their creator, the Master Mold is unstoppable. Sentinels have made appearances in a few movies, however, MCU can explore them, Master Mold, and Mother Mold in detail.
The New X-Men
Grant Morrison took over the X-Men in 2001. It has many detailed storylines that can maintain the marvel continuity and still be a new era for the X-Men. In addition, the MCU can adapt storylines such as “Planet X”, and “E Is For Extinction” into movies from the comics’ 41-issues run.
In Marvel Comics, Genosha is essential in the X-Men’s history. Humans enslaved the mutants and removed their powers in Genosha. Later, Magneto claimed it and made it a haven for mutants from all over the world. Genosha was the base of operations for Magneto in the first X-Men film. It was also a haven for the mutants in the Dark Phoenix. Genosha can be explored further as the reflection of the bias that exists in humanity.
Mister Sinister, one of the most famous comic book villains, is yet to appear in the movies. He is endowed with several powers and is the superhuman creation of the Apocalypse. With the proper treatment of the character, Sinister can range from goofy to scary in a single storyline.
House Of M
The Scarlet Witch spoke the words “No More Mutants” and destroyed the mutant gene in the comic book “House Of M.” She also eliminated all the mutants except 1% of them who escaped her wrath. The MCU could adapt the event in reverse. Instead of removing mutants, the Scarlet Witch could create them because the original storyline could be very dark and hard to achieve.
The Dark Phoenix Saga
The saga is a complicated arc that can not be given justice through only a single movie. The Phoenix and the Dark Phoenix Sagas would take up an entire phase in the MCU if done correctly, and it would be amazing to see.
9. X-Men vs.The Avengers
The comic book was a crossover epic released in 2012. The Avengers battled The X-Men over the revived Phoenix Force. The X-Men will first need to be established as a part of the MCU before approaching this storyline.
10. Powers Of X
Jonathan Hickman’s imagination of the X-Men’s universe is unique and epic. It opens up untold possibilities for new and inventive storylines in the future. The Powers of X is about Moira MacTaggert and her ability to experience multiple lifetimes and create a new timeline every time.
