X2 is the second movie in the X-Men series and features all of
the characters from the first bar Toad and Sabretooth. It is set a few months
after X1 where Magneto is still imprisoned in his plastic prison, Mystique is
portraying Senator Kelly and Wolverine is out trying to find out about his past
in the Canadian mountains.
But all is not okay in X land as the sinister William Stryker
has plans to use Cerebro for
some kind of experiment and he needs not only parts of Cerebro but the only one
who can use it, Professor X. So it is up to the X-Men to find out what is going
on as with an attack on the President by a rouge mutant, mutants are standing in
the red corner surrounded my a "registration act".

of new characters such as Nightcrawler, Deathstrike, Iceman (in a much bigger

Also if you look closely at the end you will see a 'bird' underneath the water this is hopefully a prelude to X3 with the Dark Phoenix.
