Marvel’s “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” Weaves Magneto Into The Kennedy Assassination On “The Bent Bullet” Website

Marvel’s upcoming mutant flick, “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” gives them TONS of tie in opportunities and they have launched a rather large one on a site called “The Bent Bullet.”  Director Bryan Singer’s time travel epic allows Marvel to go back in the past and look at historic events and then put a mutant spin on them.

The Bent Bullet bannerWell that is JUST what they have done with this new website and the topic is one of the most debated and tragic moments in history.  Over on “The Bent Bullet” they have linked the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel Universe, Erik Lehnsherr, AKA… Magneto.

Half a century ago, Magneto was implicated in the mutant plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.  The events of that fateful day in November have been a point of contention between humans and the mutants ever since.

There is even a grainy amateur photo that shows Magneto there the moment of the assassination. One of the many cool things is a description of the holding facility that holds the mightiest of mutants.  (There is even a short walk through video.)

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 10.01.52 PMThe killer resides in a federal correctional facility – a classified location that’s at least a quarter mile underground, and presumably miles from anywhere important. The facility is constructed from concrete amalgams and transparent materials so secret and durable, they don’t even have a name.  In the event of a global nuclear holocaust, a government contractor once said, only two things will survive, “Cockroaches and THIS guy.”

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 9.52.17 PMThere is enough here to keep a fan AND a conspiracy theorist happy for some time.  Marvel’s “X-Men Days of Future Past” comes out on May 23rd (which seems like an eternity at this point) but head on over to “The Bent Bullet” in the meantime.  It should make the wait easier to handle.
