Bear with me for a second here — if the footage was just Professor X and Magneto bullshitting about the duties of homo superior, I wouldn’t have bothered posting it. But this footage contains a quick shot of Havok in what appears to be a reasonably accurate version of his Havok uniform, firing an energy blast or whatever, and another quick shot of Banshee flying through the air, which was not a power I though Banshee had (although according to the Marvel Wiki he does, so oh well). So… yes. Three seconds of new First Class footage of mutants using powers. Hey, at least I didn’t oversell it. (Via Blastr)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
