In the first episode, under the command of Professor X, the mutants put the evil Magneto into the sidelines, but they are still not recognized by the society. After a political figure was assassinated, all the blame was once again directed at mutants. This time, Professor X also felt so much pressure that he had to negotiate with the President of the United States on this matter. A former general with a high reputation led an alliance against mutants to continuously put pressure on Professor X. In this case, Magneto had to find a way to join forces with Professor X to resist the former general. Wolverine’s life experience will also be further revealed in this episode.
