The assassination Is world's public exposure to mutants.Thus beguins the antimutant hysteria.The government started the weapon X Project to use mutants as weapons
against other mutants.Eventully the registeration act Is purposed.This leads to events of trilogy.Post trilogy antimutants devolp a new weapon The Sentinles.They are used to
try to deal with the so called Mutant problems.The sentinles turn on creators.
You've just connected all the films there.
I like that chain of events.
One thing that needs thinking about is the start of X1 when Jean Grey is talking about mutants at the senate hearing. The government already has a list of mutants, and in X2 we saw all those files on Stryker's computer, but it always seemed like something had recently happened before the start of X1 to make mutants an issue. I would like to see that addressed, perhaps in a later film. What was it that made them want a registration act?
