After an attempted assault on the president of the
United States performed by a mutant (the fabulous Alan
Cumming as Nightcrawler), Colonel William Stryker gets
permission to raid the X Men school.
Stryker is experimenting with mutants since years,
and he is the man who created Wolverine.
Meanwhile, Magneto escapes from his high security prison
- but only after being forced to reveal the secret of
Cerebro to Stryker.
Magneto and Mystique team up with the X Men to stop
Stryker from starting a war against the mutants.

and this is one of them! Go watch!
