An alternate time. An alternate world. Professor Charles Xavier is starting to lose hope for his cause. Humanity largely seems in favour of registering and segregating mutants. In a world paralyzed by fear, Xavier unites a small band of young mutants to become the symbol of hope they have always been destined to be: the X-Men.
