Nathaniel Essex starts his own research corporation in england where Moria McTaggart works and is in contact with Charles Xavier, DrEssex does not seem sinister at this point. Hank is in constant fights with the Hellfire club over mutant registration act. Hank's experments causes him to turn blue, the video in the second movie with hank as human is archieved footage of this period. > 2000 - Between this decade the advents of X-Men 1 to 3 happen > 2010 - Wolverine has gone off to find out about his past, Ororoe is left incharge of the school and has disbanded the X-Men, Colossus and Kitty Pride go on a Euro tour to meet up with Nightcrawler...Nod to Excaliber. a deadly virus occures that kills mutants causinga hostile reaction from them, Beast and White queen open a new task force known as Factor-X they recruit Iceman, Rogue and Angel former X-Men... with Emma Frost's own Academy students - Havok, Polaris and Forge... Dr.Essex takes over research of this new Legacy Virus of which issues the Mauraders to kill the Morlocks. The Legacy Virus is a mutated verson of the cure created by Leech. Pyro has been infected by it and has become hostile. Essex's Maurders consists of 6 members, Gambit, Vertigo, Harpoon, Blockbuster, Scrambler and Riptide. as the story unfolds essex is revealed as a mutant who can not die, gives Rogue back her powers Gambit is her new love interest, Iceman falls for team member Polaris, Angel looses his wings, Part of Sinisters plan is to make Angel a horsemen - End of X-Men 4 X-Men 5 - Trask has been premoted to produce sentinals underground with the help of the Hellfire backing them. a homless mutant Bishop has a premenision of the future and tries to stop the advents from happening, this causing the Factor-X to intervien, The Hellfire who also in connection with Mr Sinister who is covering up his shady dealings. The Hellfire unlease the first wave prototype of sentinals on the Factor-X, Arch-Angel is revealed which just makes matters worse, Gambit has offically joined the Factor-X with Rogue.

Jean Grey when ressurected sent Cyclops to an unknown place so that the Phoenix could not hurt him. when Apocaylpse distruction re-awoke the Phoenix spark in Jean''s remains re-animating her which causes Cyclops to return from the unknown place, However because of the warped nature of apocaylpse and sinisters experments essentially the cyclops and jean grey were merged to create the 12 year old cable. who they class as there son... Not only did Apocaylpse death cause Jeans revival but also Xavier... however Xavier no longer has a body but his concious is still active unable to take form he becomes Onslaught...In this future Factor X is redesigned Iceman has retired to a normal life, Rogue angel and gambit return to the x-men, which scott and Jean also returning. Factor X now has Havok, Polaris, Forge, Multiple Man, Wolfbane and Strong Guy as members... adventually Onsluaght is destroyed and Xavier is given a phyiscal form which he can walk. And from this the Movie universe will end and no other story will preceed it. Intitally the X-Men universe can go on and on because there is so many stories. But i think like Star wars they need a second trilogy - and the only stories they havent properly coveredi s the Legacy Virus, Days Of Future Past and Rise of Apocaylpse. And as insurance have Onslaught, on the back burner.
