Take a Stand

Logan: Maybe it's time for us to move on.
Scott: Not everybody heals as fast as you, Logan.

No, Professor, they can't cure us.
You wanna know why?
Because there's nothing to cure.
Nothing's wrong with you. Or any of us, for that matter.

Prof. X: Jean Grey is the only class 5 mutant I've ever encountered, her potential limitless.
Her mutation is seated in the unconscious part of her mind and therein lay the danger.
When she was a girl, I created a series of psychic barriers
to isolate her powers from her conscious mind.
And the result is Jean developed a dual personality.
Logan: What?
Prof. X: The conscious Jean, whose powers were always in her control, and the dominant side.
A personality that, in our sessions, came to call itself The Phoenix.
A purely instinctual creature, all desire and joy and rage.
Logan: She knew all this?
Prof. X: It's unclear how much she knew.
Far more critical is whether the woman in front of us is the Jean Grey we know
or The Phoenix furiously struggling to be free.
Logan: She looks peaceful to me.
Prof. X: Because I'm keeping her that way.
I'm trying to restore the psychic blocks and cage the beast again.
Logan: What have you done to her?
Prof. X: You have to understand...
Logan: You're talking about a person's mind.
Prof. X: She has to be controlled.
Logan: Controlled?
Sometimes, when you cage the beast, the beast gets angry.
Prof. X: You have no idea of what she is capable of.
Logan: No, Professor, I had no idea what you were capable of.

Don't let it control you.
~Professor X, to Jean-Grey

We live in an age of darkness.
A world full of fear, hate and intolerance.
But in every age, there are those who fight against it.
Charles Xavier was born to a world divided.
A world he tried to heal.
A mission he never saw accomplished.
It seems the destiny of great man to see their goals unfulfilled.
Charles was more than a leader, more than a teacher.
He was a friend.
When we were afraid, he gave us strength.
And when we were alone, he gave us a family.
He may be gone, but his teachings live on through us, his students.
Wherever we may go, we must carry on his vision.
And that's a vision of a world united.

Callisto: She couldn't be here with us.
Her power is completely unstable.
Magneto: Only in the wrong hands.
Pyro: And you trust her? She's one of them.
Magneto: So were you once.
Pyro: I'm stuck with you all the way.
Would have killed the professor if you'd given me the chance.
Magneto: Charles Xavier did for the mutants than you'll ever know.
My single greatest regret is that he had to die for our dream to live.

Logan: If Magneto gets that cure, we can't stop him.
Beast: Can you estimate how many he has?
Logan: An army. And Jean.
His powers have limits, hers do not.
Bobby: There's only 6 of us, Logan.
Logan: Yeah, we're outnumbered. I'm not gonna lie to you.
But we lost Scott.
We lost the professor.
If we don't fight now, everything they stood for will die with them.
I'm not gonna let that happen.
Are you?
[Bobby shakes his head]
Then we stand together.
All of us.

Mr. Worthington: I only wanted to help you people.
Kid Omega: Do we look like need your help?
