About this item

TAKE A STAND.The world has acquired a lethal new weapon against X-gene mutants, whose superhuman powers separate them–for better, for worse, forever–from ordinary mortals. Now, for the first time, mutants have a choice: retain their godlike abilities, though their powers may isolate and alienate them, or surrender them and become human. The mutant antibody is called a cure, but its invention may trigger a struggle that destroys every living soul on Earth.As Magneto declares all-out war against humanity and its dreaded cure, the U.S. president mobilizes the military. But it is Charles Xavier and the X-Men who truly must brace for the ultimate battle, for they alone are powerful enough to determine the outcome.Lessons of the past are useless in the coming life-and-death conflict, as new players–mutants possessing unprecedented, unearthly skills– take center stage. With so many joining forces with Magneto’s evil Brotherhood, the X-Men will face their ultimate test against an enemy whose forces far outnumber their own. Now, as the world trembles, the Phoenix slowly rises. . .
In the midst of an uneasy peace between humans and mutants, a human scientist discovers a cure that can transform mutants back into humans, but one dangerous mutant sees the process as a clear threat to the mutants' continuing survival and threatens to take deadly action against all humankind. Original. (A Twentieth Century Fox film, written by Zak Penn & Simon Kinberg, directed by Brett Ratner, releasing Summer 2006, starring Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, Halle Berry, Kelsey Grammer, and others) (Science Fiction)
