X-Men: First Class was far more awesome than it had any right to be. This awesomeness was clearly demonstrated in the upscale 60’s strip club scene, where a young Professor Xavier and a young Magneto lie on a bed together in the champagne room to recruit a mutant stripper into the “first class” of X-Men. It was all a bit sleazy and homoerotic, but it could have also involved drag queen fantasy, as this EW exclusive deleted portion of the scene illustrates. Either Professor X had some conflicted feelings for his friend Magneto, or he was just a raging douchebag. Probably both.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
