X-Men: Days of Future Past

With official word coming out that the next X-Men film would be Days of Future Past, got a little nostalgic and watched these episodes from the 90's series. Also found these episodes on Youtube so I am sharing them here.

There are two known stories for Days of Future Past. The comic version (The Uncanny X-Men issues #141 and #142) tells of a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps.

The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future.

The alternate story, embedded below, is that of Bishop and the idea of a traitor within the ranks of the X-Men. Bishop played the role of Kitty Pryde. The future was a dystopia where Sentinels rule, and mutants were put into concentration camps. Only a small group of mutant rebels remained free and unharmed, led by an aged Wolverine.

Bishop, a bounty hunter, captures Wolverine, but sides with him when the Sentinels attack him as well. They met Forge, who created a time machine, and sent Bishop back in time to change history by preventing the assassination of Senator Kelly. He identified Gambit as the assassin, but the crime was actually committed by the shape-shifting mutant Mystique, who took the form of Gambit to frame the X-Men. The real Gambit saved Kelly, and Rogue sent Bishop back to the future by destroying the machine that allowed him to stay in the past. However, Bishop returned to a future that was still a dystopia. Bishop would return several times to prevent other villains from changing history in even worse ways, but never managed to prevent the Sentinel takeover.
