It feels like ages ago that we learned that Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Hugh Jackman would be reprising their roles in the upcoming sequel to “X-Men: First Class”, which also confirmed our suspicion that they’ll indeed be utilizing the time-traveling element from the epic X-Men story line. Then the recent Golden Globe winner, Hugh Jackman, had this to say about the movie:
Every other actor who’s ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it. There’s an element of time travel and, naturally, it will be action-packed.
So yes, that bit of information had the internet running wild. Everyone had their own ideas of who they wanted to see come back and they ranged from Colossus to Nightcrawler. BUT I BELIEVE THEY ALL HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS LITTLE GEM FROM THE THIRD MOVIE.
Remember this guy? He’s like a cross between Tokyo Drift and a porcupine, and his mutant power allowed him to hug people to death. He’s been credited as “Kid Omega,” who was originally an Omega level mutant with psionic powers. He can influence people using psychic suggestions, resist mind probes, and conjure psychic shotguns that shoot psychic shells. Obviously this guy has nothing on my boy, the Asian Sea Urchin.
So we’ll probably be getting all the staple characters from the previous X-Men movies like Storm, Jean Grey, Iceman, Colossus, and Cyclops (so they can kill him again unceremoniously). Perhaps this will help to finally straighten out the Fox X-Men timeline that’s been in question for so long…or they could just use this movie as an excuse to say that it caused the whole timeline to become extremely convoluted. I guess they win either way.
