X-Men Days of Future Past: The Rogue Cut Recut

Act 8

In the past... Magneto is sending Logan out to drown: With many a brown metal pipe like part in his arms and legs. All while Charles and Erik’s bottled up pasts, Hank’s bottled up rage, and Mystique’s bottled up anger all come to a head with the Sentinels of the past.

In the present... The Sentinels are charging in.

They’re charging up the fire in their shapeshifting hands.

Rogue, looking up fearfully at them, starts to take one of her hands away.

Professor X whispers, “no, Rogue. It’s changing.”

Logan’s body is coming back...as a great big cloud of foggy light is giving in to bright red light.

Rogue faintly chuckles. She remarks, “I know. But, I’m still going out fighting.”

With a hand on Logan’s head instead of just to the side... She reaches out with her other hand to fire hairline spikes into the chests of some of the Sentinels. They explode.

Fire keeps coming.

But, Magneto, Rogue, and Professor X faintly smile...as everything vanishes in a flash of red light.
