  • Yes, the main plot of the film is set in 1963. However, the events Edie and Jakob Lehnsherr appear in aren't a flashback, because it never flashbacks from 1963 back to when Edie and Jakob were in the camps. It starts off when Erik was a boy then skips a few years to when he's an adult. It's part of the film's main plot. In simple terms, it's basically moving from point A to point B. It's not starting off in point B then flashing back to point A.

    Now, Edie, Erik, and Shaw do appear in a flashback in the middle section of the movie, when Charles looks at Erik's memories. Now, THAT's a flashback.

    Another example would be Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, who appeared in the opening of the film in the 1980s before the film moving to present day. Now, editors didn't put (Appears in flashback and main story), because it wasn't a flashback. No character was flashing back to that particular moment.

    Also, it's first chronological appearance because they previously appeared in the first X-Men film, but First Class expands upon that.

    Now, please stop the edit warring because I have given clear evidence as to why it shouldnt be "Appears in flashback and main story". (The evidence being previous examples on the site and basic narrative structure).

    • Ok. But why first Chronnologically? The appearance of Edie and Jakob in first X-Men is the same of First Class (with differents actors), but in First Class is extended to scene of Shaw killing Erik's mother. so I think that don't has necessity to put First Chronologically.Bobby stronda (talk) 22:32, May 28, 2016 (UTC)

    • Okay, then we don't have to put first chronologically.

    • What you think about Angel, Psylocke and Jubilee from X-Men Apocalypse? They have be named Warren Worthington III, Elizabeth Braddock and Jubilation Lee, respectively, or not?

    • I don't think they should.

      I always resort to the credits for these things. In the credits, all the mutants with aliases are listed like (Real Name / Alias), but with Angel, Psylocke, and Jubilee, they're just listed as Angel, Psylocke, and Jubilee.

      I find this suspiciously weird, so I think it's better to just leave off their assumed real names.

    • In my opinion, only Psylocke have to be named Elizabeth Braddock. Because Angel and Jubilee is very older than Angel and Jubilee from Original Timeline, its visibly that are differents characters. And this Psylocke its more alike to Elizabeth Braddock than Psylocke from Original Timeline, that was interpreted by a Asian actress. I don't think that Psylocke from new timeline looks to be Revanche

    • What you think about this three characters?

    • I think their aliases should be their page names, except for Jubilee. She is most definitely the Jubilation Lee of this universe. She just didn't have a big role in this film.
