It turns out that tai chi is great for quelling those supervillainous urges.
FADE IN: EXT. HIGHWAY, 1975 YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER is on a drive with her PARENTS. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER Are we there yet? SOPHIE’S MOM Not yet, honey. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER Are we there yet? SOPHIE’S MOM I said no. Quiet down. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER Sorry, one of the hissing malevolent voices in my head wanted me to ask. Speaking of which, another one of them has a question: are we there yet? SOPHIE’S MOM DON’T MAKE ME TURN THIS CAR AROUND. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER I’ll do what I want! She uses BRAIN MAGIC to make her mother TURN THE CAR AROUND into UNCOMING TRAFFIC. The car gets SMASHED and FLIPPED and the PARENTS get KILLED. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER Whoopsie! Well, I’d say that was easily the second best prologue to a superhero movie, in which we flash back to the global threat as a child getting their family into a car accident, of 2019! (pause) Look, this movie is gonna take whatever plaudits it can get. (passes out) She wakes up in a HOSPITAL, where JAMES MCAVOY comes to see her. JAMES MCAVOY Hi, Sophie. Now I know what you’re thinking, and yes, the scene where we meet happened completely differently in The Last Stand. But remember Days of Future past changed the timeline, so we can do whatever the fuck we want. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER Yeah, Days of Future Past ALSO claimed that in the original timeline, Magneto went off to be a terrorist in 1962 then got thrown in prison for life for assassinating the President. So how does it make any sense that he was hanging out with you helping to recruit students in 1975? JAMES MCAVOY Look, that’s not this movie’s fault. We’re trying our best here. YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER I see no evidence of that. Anyway, I don’t know about coming to your school for freaks. I think you just want to fix me. JAMES MCAVOY Fix you? Never! You don’t need to be fixed, you’re fine! YOUNG SOPHIE TURNER (brightening) So the hostile whispers in my head that tell me to disintegrate people, that’s okay? JAMES MCAVOY ...How about I go ahead and fix that for you.
