Growing up and going through high school is tough for everybody on the planet. But imagine if your latent mutant abilities decided to manifest themselves in the middle of a class that already sees you as a troublemaker? Well, that definitely doesn’t make things any easier. But it certainly comes in handy when dealing with a bully, which is exactly what a young Scott Summers finds out in the latest clip from ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.
When he was first introduced in the X-Men movie universe, James Marsden played Cyclops for three films and a cameo in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’. But with Bryan Singer’s latest film in the franchise being set in the 80s, we’re now being introduced to a teenage versions of some characters that we’ve already met, such as the future team leader as played by up and coming actor Tye Sheridan. And now ahead of the film’s premiere later this month, Comic Book Movie has a new clip featuring the young Summers that shows us the origins of his powerful optic blasts to give us a little taste of what to expect from the character in ‘Apocalypse’. You can check it out below, followed by the official synopsis of the movie:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Despite being a “professional writer”, Ben likes run-on sentences and puns far too much. Also, having seen the movie already, I don’t think ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is as bad as some critics are making it out to be.
