X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together with other mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.
Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto)
Raven / Mystique
Charles Xavier: Mutation took us from single celled organisms to being the dominant form of reproductive life on this planet. Infinite forms of variations with each generation, all through mutation.
Mystique: I'm sleepy, will you read to me?
Charles Xavier: I can't. I have my thesis coming up. I have to study.
Mystique: Fine read that. Your thesis always sends me right off.
Emma Frost: (speaking with Sebastion Shaw regarding Charles Xavier) If that telepath gets inside your head, he won't be as much fun as me.
Moira: The CIA invading the home of a senior Soviet official. Are you crazy?
Erik: I'm not CIA.
Erik: (speaking with Raven) You want society to accept you, but you can't even accept yourself.
Charles: Listen to me very carefully, my friend. Killing Shaw will not bring you peace.
Erik: Peace was never an option.
Erik: Have you ever looked at a tiger and thought that you ought to cover it up?
Raven: No, but...
Erik: You're an exquisite creature, Raven. All your life, the world has tried to tame you. It's time for you to be free.
