    X-Men: The Last Stand is the sequel to X-Men: First Class, X-Men and X2: X-Men United.

    The film recreates the famous Dark Phoenix Saga, and also the "Gifted" story arc from Astonishing X-Men, which involves a cure for mutants.

    The X Men discover that Jean Grey did not perish after the escape from Stryker and the Weapon X program.

    They go to investigate only to find her greatly changed.

    She joins with Magneto and his brotherhood in their attack on Worthington Industries, makers of the cure for the mutant gene.

    *I originally wrote this review shortly after seeing this movie in the theater in 2006. I think it's still valid.It was inevitable that I'd go see this movie. I've been a fan of The X-Men since 1975 when I picked up a copy of Giant Size X-Men #1. It sported a cover by the great Gil Kane and interior artwork by Dave Cockrum who I knew and liked from his run on Legion of Super Heroes. I suffered through another fifteen issues of mediocre plotting and insufferable dialogue from Chris Claremont on t...
