Remember when those new X-MEN: FIRST CLASS posters came out and everyone made fun of them? Ah, good times.
Fox is trying to mend fences with fans by releasing something worthwhile from the Matthew Vaughn film. The image you see above is our first look at Havok, played by Lucas Till. It was released today on the movie’s Facebook page. As any X-MEN fan knows, Havok is a mutant capable of producing powerful plasma blasts. I’m guessing said plasma blasts led to the fire we see in the photo.
This is a pretty cool photo, much better than those weird head-crotch one sheets from last night. Let’s see more of this stuff, Fox!
Here’s a brief synopsis of the Havok, younger brother of Cyclops:
Havok is a mutant possessing the power to absorb ambient cosmic energy, process it and emanate it from his body as waves of energy that heat the air in the path, turning it into plasma in the form of a blast or discharge, with a tell-tale concentric circle pattern. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms. This results in control over an extremely powerful sort of destructive force. He is immune to the adverse effects of most forms of radiation and heat. In the past, he was not entirely able to control this ability, which made him a danger to those around him unless he wore a special containment suit equipped with special sensors for measuring and controlling his power output. Havok is immune to his own powers and to those of his brother Scott.
