“Sometimes being gifted doesn’t feel like a gift (boy inadvertently kills flower). Nobody seems to understand you (glowing soccer ball undermines friendship). Sometimes, they’re even scared of you. Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to worry about hiding your gift anymore (spooky eyes)? Hi, I’m Jubilee, and it wasn’t that long ago when I felt that way, too. But then, I became a student at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters and everything changed!” Hosted by 80s mutant phenom, Jubilee, this is the introduction for a purposely retro commercial advertising, yes, the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters.
Who runs this amazing school offering not only a quality, standard, human education, but an understanding and learned maintenance of one’s extraordinary evolution? That would be world renowned geneticist, Professor Charles Xavier! But more importantly, the Xavier School consists of a student body – and to some degree, a faculty – equally empowered and mutually mutated. Sometimes, a gift as great as yours (yes, bleeding low-fat milk is a gift) is a traumatic, isolating burden. But lift your drooping pig-snout, bedeviled, spat-upon mutant degenerates; the island of your true brethren awaits you at….THE XAVIER SCHOOL FOR GIFTED YOUNGSTERS!
Oh, and…suit up. Apocalypse and 4 other mutants just set fire to Alaska.
X-Men Apocalypse debuts May 27th and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn and Lucas Till.
