    • The overview states that, five years in the future, "...People with extraordinary abilities are labeled as terrorists and are being registered, hunted, and killed...." There is a direct correlation between this and one of the opening scenes of the original X-Men movie, in which Senator Kelly debates Dr. Jean Grey in a Congressional hearing, demanding that mutants be registered so that the American people can know who they are and what they can do. More recently, it also references the Civil War crossover event in the Marvel Universe that revolves around the same political issue.

      On a similar note, the cure that Mohinder has been trying to develop for the last five years closely resembles a major plot element of the third X-Men film.
