X-Men fans, check this out.  Twentieth Century Fox recently announced a new App, “X-Men EXTRA,” that puts users in the middle of the most defining – and top secret – events of the past century. The digital and updatable magazine app debuted today on the iPad and will be coming soon to iPhone, the Blackberry Playbook and Android tablets.

The App hypothesizes, through hidden video clips and newly discovered photos, that the X-Men played a secret role in shaping many historic events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mutants were working within covert government agencies, infiltrating the highest echelons of power – and secretly changing the course of history.

It’s available now for iPad with other platforms coming soon.

‘X-Men: First Class,’ in theaters everywhere right now, unveils the epic beginning of the ‘X-Men’ saga – and a secret history of the Cold War and our world at the brink of nuclear Armageddon. As the first class discovers, harnesses, and comes to terms with their formidable powers, alliances are formed that will shape the eternal war between the heroes and villains of the ‘X-Men’ universe.
