This reality shared the same history as Earth-10005 up until 1973, at which point the Wolverine from that universe travelled back in time in order to prevent Mystique from killing Bolivar Trask and thus avert a dystopian future.[1]



Driven by the belief that mutants will one day eradicate the human species, Bolivar Trask commissioned the Sentinel program, a robotic police force designed to hunt down and kill mutants. Mutant shapeshifter Mystique moved to assassinate Trask before the program further developed, but mutants of a dystopian future had pinpointed this as the event that triggered mutant annihilation, and so they sought to prevent it by sending one of their own back in time. By doing so, the X-Men were reformed, the dystopian future was averted, and mutants were set on a new path of redemption.[1]


Following the revelation of mutants' existence to the public, many began fearing what they could do while others formed cults and organizations in response to these mutants. One cult was able to discover what they believed to be the first ever mutant in history, En Sabah Nur. Their discovery led them to excavate his remains from under a fallen pyramid, unknowingly awakening En Sabah Nur from his dormancy. Outraged at what had become of the world during his slumber, En Sabah Nur gathered together four powerful mutants to help him cleanse the world. However, in the end, he was defeated by the X-Men and a mutant who wielded the power of the Phoenix force.[2]


After his father's death at the hands of Weapon X in the 80s, Dr. Zander Rice and his company, the Transigen Corporation began tampering with the gene pool of the population in order to suppress the mutant gene from being triggered. Rice also later began breeding children into genetically enhanced mutants that he'd hoped would follow his orders.[3]


The modern age brought on new technology for the shrinking mutant species to survive, which is what mutant criminal Francis Freeman had in mind when developing experiments on how to trigger the dormant mutant gene within any ordinary human. Freeman was successful in creating mutants for his criminal organization, but eventually came into conflict with mutant mercenary Deadpool. Deadpool, determined to get back his ex-girlfriend from Freeman, and teamed up with a couple of X-Men, took down Freeman's organization and put a stop to the mutant experimentation.[4]


By the late 2020s, the mutant population had mostly gone extinct for no new mutant had been born in over two decades. Simultaneously, the mutants that sought sanctuary in Xavier's School were driven away after an incident resulted in the injury of many and the death of a few of the X-Men. Charles Xavier, seeking redemption from his accidental loss of control, persuaded surviving X-Man Logan into helping a rare mutant child travel to a new mutant sanctuary set up in Canada. After a long, bloody journey through North America, Logan learned of Zander's plot to rid the world of mutants, besides the children he manufactured into becoming mutants, and put an end to it. In the end, Logan helped the mutant children find liberation and sanctuary, before succumbing to his wounds and Adamantium poisoning.[3]

This reality is used in films produced by 20th Century Fox that are meant to be part of the X-Men shared film universe.

  • A film centered on the character of Gambit, starring Channing Tatum and written by Josh Zetumer, was scheduled for a October 2016 release, but was taken off the studio's release schedule due to production delays. Production on the film is expected to begin in 2018.[5]
  • In July 2013, director Jeff Wadlow was hired by 20th Century Fox to write a film based on the X-Force comic series.[6] It has since been reported that the script has undergone revision by Kinberg, Reynolds, and Joe Carnahan.[7][8] Kinberg has confirmed that the film will feature Deadpool and Cable (who both appear in the Deadpool sequel).[9] However, according to Reese, the film will ultimately be a separate film from a third Deadpool movie.[10]
