The film revolves around Professor X’s early years with his students. The cast includes “Mad Men” star January Jones as Emma Frost, famous for her sexy diamond-skin armor.
The film also details the genesis of the rift between Magneto and Professor X, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s crew.
