Genre: Superhero action/adventure

The X-Men face their worst crisis yet when an ancient mutant bent on erasing humankind frames one of the X-Men’s own in a public assassination attempt that leaves Professor Xavier infected with a biological weapon, paving the way for anti-mutant hysteria and the introduction of an army of mutant hunting robots.

Note: Written prior to the release of X-Men: The Last Stand, this spec script takes place following the events of X2: X-Men United. It is in no way affiliated with the 2016 release from Twentieth Century Fox. It just took them ten years to catch up.
