Tyrion Lannister a.k.a. Peter Dinklage is Bolivar Trask, founder and CEO of Trask-Industries: the company that would go on to enslave mutant-kind with massive robotic Sentinel’s. As seen by some at San Diego Comic-Con this past week. Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-men: Days of Future Past will not only feature Trask’s Sentinel’s, but time-travel and a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are being sent to internment camps.
The coveted franchise will be trying to shake off X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and X-Men 3: The Last Stand: both films having been absolute garbage, garnering an average 47.5% rottentomatoes score. While X-men: First Class did some damage-control, Singer will probably be looking to make some headway on the many fans of the franchise. As a matter of fact, with Sentinel’s running around, Singer could totally swing some Magneto/JFK”magic-bullet” action into the mix. Let’s just hope, assume and pray that the guy isn’t going to pull some sort of Zack Snyder. Because that would be bad. Like really bad. Speaking of the man-himself, Snyder will direct a Man of Steel sequel, featuring none other than a rebooted Caped Crusader. Does lowly gruntish simpleton Zack Snyder have sufficient enough intellectual-capacity and talent to do justice to the Justice League? NO. No he absolutely does not. Any other questions?
Idealists are metaphysical in their explanations, and will typically adopt enigmatic perspectives when trying to come to terms with life’s difficulties. NF’s attribute unhappy events to some esoteric power above themselves. Becoming content to live with a mysterious sense of causation, bravely accepting the outcome with unparalleled grace, and humility. Please Understand Me II — p. 134
Professor X was born Charles Francis Xavier in New York City, New York. The mutant son of wealthy nuclear researcher Dr. Brian Xavier, Charles is a gifted paraplegic telepath and founder of the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters: often referred to as the X-Men. Charles has spent his entire life mediating a peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants.
Extraordinarily intuitive, profoundly mentoring, and literally empathic, Professor X is an Idealist. Indeed Charles is a powerful psychic, and often uses his oracular abilities to share the pains of others and alleviate them. The Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters is a safe-haven for nurturing the personal development of mutants that have been cast-out and ostracized.
Any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.— Professor X
Solipsism gives the Rational a relativistic way of dealing with setbacks. Rational’s believe that reality, like truth and beauty: is in the eye of the beholder. Each one of us is essentially alone, in an envelope of consciousness, marooned: as it were. Rational’s often conclude that all is subjective; we live in our minds-eye and all is relative to one’s point-of-view. Please Understand Me II — p. 181
Magneto was born Max Eisenhardt in Nuremburg, Germany. Max’s father taught him “fight back, and they’ll stomp in your head,” before fleeing to Warsaw Poland, after Reichskristallnach. Max spent his teenage-years in the Warsaw ghetto, becoming a smuggler of food and supplies. After attempting to flee, Max was forced to serve as a Sonderkommando; the squad of Jewish men who had to help their Nazi masters run the gas chambers, ovens, and fire pits of the camp.
The only member of his family to survive the Holocaust, Max learned first-hand exactly how human beings treat minorities they see as “different”. Abandoning emotion beyond it’s pure functionality, Max developed an aggressive superiority complex and went on to found the Brotherhood of Mutants. An organization that has abandoned hopes for diplomacy and seeks to enforce Mutant supremacy. Skeptical, subjunctive, ruthless, and resolute: Magneto is a Rational.
I know… something of grief. Search throughout my homeland, you will find none who bear my name. Mine was a large family and it was slaughtered – without mercy, without remorse. So speak not to me of grief, boy. For you know not the meaning of the word. — Magneto

“Trask Industries continues to uncover new ways to control the mounting X-gene threat,” reads the pseudo-corporate site. “In 1973, Trask Industries introduced the first Sentinel production model, the Mark I. Bolivar Trask’s groundbreaking research in AI, robotics and autonomous ballistic systems laid the foundation for the world’s most capable anti-mutant defense system. Since the program’s inception, we’ve continued to advance our founder’s cause through eight additional generational upgrades and enhancements.”
