Spidey is in the clutches of Sony
X-Men is in the clutches of Fox
But it's often fun to think of what it would be like if the web head and the mutant team crossed over with our favorite multi colored comrades from the Avengers. I, for some time, pondered on the idea of an epic superhero crossover with heroes from all ends of the Marvel universe, but all that seems to be at the end of the river because of silly copyright disputes. Spidey and the X-Men have even appeared on shows like Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but when it comes to motion pictures on the silver screen, it's something people have to pay tons and tons and tons and tons of money to make happen.
Still, I love the thought of such epic crossing over and have decided to incept a scenario of what it would be like if the web slinger and the uncanny mutants of Charles Xavier had their place in a world filled with Stark Industries, vita rays, Asgardian magic, and super soldier serum. It was fascinating and still is fascinating to ponder about, so let's see just how things would be if such an unexpected occurence would occur. This is what Spider-Man and the X-Men would be like in the unfolding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the words of Doc Ock
Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts!
Let's cross over the upcoming film, The Amazing Spider-Man and X-Men: First Class
X-Men: First Class
Now, I've heard rumors that the First Class sequel would be following the Days of Future Past storyline, which had a lot to do with time traveling mutants and mutants coming across their future selves, who warn them about upcoming events.
What if Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost were from the future. After the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Shaw and his "then" Hellfire Club terrorized the X-Men and during their use of dark magic, they resurrected Cyclops, who was driven insane by the recent loss of Jean Grey. Vowing to get back at Logan and the X-Men, Cyclops joins Shaw and they vow to start a war that will eventually result in the extinction of the human race. The X-Men, who are desperate to recruit new mutants to fight in the upcoming battle, come across new members of the team including an older Gambit, Thunderbird, and two time traveling mutants, Cable and Bishop. Meanwhile, Shaw gives into Cyclops' demands and resurrects Jean Grey, twisting her mind and making her truly evil like Cyclops.
A catastrophic war breaks out between both sides and mutants such as Colossus and Gambit are killed. All hope seems lost for the X-Men just as Magneto and his new Brotherhood arrives including members like Pyro, Spiral, Lady Deathstrike, Avalanche and the Blob. The Brotherhood teams up with the X-Men to fight Shaw and as Cable and Bishop fight Cyclops and Jean Grey, Cable reveals to them that he is their son from the future. Cyclops and Jean are shocked by the news and they reform with the X-Men to fight the Hellfire Club. As Cable attempts to fight Shaw and his minions, his time travel device malfunctions, sending Shaw and Frost (who has aged considerably since X-Men Origins: Wolverine) back in time to the early 1940s.
Shaw goes undercover as a German scientist named Klaus Schmidt (named after the Red Skull, Johann Schmidt). After hearing of Abraham Erskine's success in creating a "super soldier", Shaw begins experimenting on Jewish people being held at the concentration camps, particularly young children. He then comes across young Eric Lensherr, who he knows from the future, and Shaw intends to mold him and make him something of his own. He tries to test the boy and after Eric is unable to flip a coin with his metal moving powers, Shaw shoots and kills his mother, sending Eric into a violent rage.
Shaw begins experimenting on Eric, trying to make his powers stable and to his liking, but the newly christened Captain America arrives and fights off Shaw and his forces with his Howling Commandos by his side. He frees Eric from Shaw's bondage and Eric vows to get back at Shaw for what he has done to him, no matter what the cost.
Of course, I don't have to go into any further detail, because if I did, I would be describing the entire X-Men: First Class movie. But it was certainly intriguing to try and tie together the convoluted continuity of the X-Men film series with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, let's move onto the wall crawler.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Now, I can't go into great description with this one because the movie isn't even out yet. But let's go into some light speculating with what we do know.
Peter Parker's parents are in the new revamp. Perhaps Peter's parents worked with Dr. Curtis Connors to try and perfect the super soldier serum, perfected by Abraham Erskine decades earlier. They worked with things such as cross species genetics, lizard's blood and of coarse, spiders. Peter's parents went as far to create an alien like substance that could completely envelope a human being and give them superior abilities and endurance.
But the government wasn't too happy with their findings and attempted to hunt them down. So Richard and Mary Parker went into hiding and placed Peter in the care of Richard's brother, Ben, and his wife May. Dr. Connors continued to try and find ways to make humans evolve and even attempted to try and cure cancer, plagues and lost limbs. The Parkers knew this and they knew that this would eventually lead Connors to loss his mind and terrorize the city. So when they left Peter with his aunt and uncle, they left him a suitcase which, as we all know, Peter finds in his teenage years. This suitcase, which Peter humbly observes, leads him to Oscorp, where he eventually stumbles across his father's abandoned "spider room". There, Peter is bitten by a genetically enhanced spider, the spider his parents always intended him to be bitten by. Of coarse, Peter becomes Spider-Man and he is able to fight off Connors when he eventually looses his humanity and becomes the nefarious Lizard.
The only one who knew of his parents' secret was Rajit Ratha.
Richard and Mary Parker went on to become agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. under the leadership of Nick Fury. Peter became a crime fighter and hunted vigilante.
As I stated earlier, this is just for fun, just to see what it would be like if Spider-Man and the X-Men were in the same consistency as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk. It surely is interesting if you think about it and I surely hope that one day, Spidey and the X-Men can play in the same Marvel ball game and be part of the same excellent kingdom we have come to adore through the Avengers. The possibilities are endless, and the sky's the limit, so keep believing and something splendid might come along, unexpected but splendid. As I said before, stories come in all shapes and sizes, but if we observe them carefully, we can come across many remarkable things, things we didn't see during the first glance.
