BIOs: X-Men First Class

We recently got our first look on the new batch of merry mutants. Here’s a quick feature on each character for the benefit of the two or three people who visits this site and does not know what the heck is happening and who are these people with funny looking hats.

James McAvoy as Professor X

Comic Bio: Charles Xavier’s dream is Mutants and Humans live together in harmony and as equals. His friend the mutant known as Magneto does not believe this is possible. Professor used his family's fortune to build a school for the mutant community, where he could teach them to use their powers safely and with responsibility.

For his dream to come true he needs to fight for it enters his team of X-Men, named not from Xavier's moniker, but for the gene in Mutant DNA that gives them their powers. Alongside his X-Men, he strives to defend and protect the humans that would otherwise be targets of more violent factions of mutant-kind.

Born with psychic abilities, he is arguably the most powerful telepath on the planet.

Previous CBM incarnation:

Michael Fassbender as Magneto

Comic Bio: Magneto is a powerful mutant with the ability to generate and control magnetism, He has been the X-Men's most prominent enemy ever since his first appearance. In his early appearances, his motives were bent on megalomania, but writers have since fleshed out his character and origin, revealing him to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor whose actions are driven by the purpose of protecting the mutant race from suffering a similar fate. His role in comics have varied from supervillain to antihero to even hero.

He is the leader of the New York branch of the Hellfire Club, a secret society bent on world domination, although to the public, he is a legitimate businessman and ordinary human. He once funded the mutant-hunting Sentinel program to keep it under his thumb.

X-Men First Class will be Sebastian Shaw’s first adaptation to live media.

January Jones as Emma Frost

Comic Bio: Emma Frost is an urbane, mutant telepath with a well-noted dry wit she was formerly known as the White Queen. In the comics Frost has changed from one of the X-Men's most dangerous foes to one of its most central members.

Previous CBM/TV incarnation
Finola Hughes portrayed Emma Frost in a 1996 TV movie titled Generation X.

Tahyna Tozzi portrayed Emma/Kayla Silverfox’s sister in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The character showcased the ability of turning her skin into diamond a later mutation by the comicbook version of Emma Frost, note that this version of Emma did not display any telepathic powers. It remains to be seen if this Emma is one and the same with the Jones’ version, or related to the character.
