"You know this plastic prison of theirs won't hold me forever. The war is still coming, Charles. And I intend to fight it, by any means necessary."
―Magneto[src]

The Brotherhood of Mutants are a group of mutants who believe that mutants are superior to humans. The group was formed by Eric Lehnsherr due to his belief that if mutants did not defend themselves, they would be wiped out by humans.

History

The original leader of the team was Magneto, a mutant with the ability to control magnetic fields. It would later be revealed that Magneto was a Holocaust survivor, explaining his distrust of humanity and its inability to accept those who are different.

X-Men: First Class

"I've been at the mercy of men just following orders. Never again."
―Magneto[src]

Magneto formed the Brotherhood after the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. The team consisted of him, Azazel, Riptide, Angel Salvadore, Mystique, and Emma Frost.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

In 1963, The Brotherhood Members Azazel and Angel Salvadore (who took the name Tempest) died in a firefight while fighting with Project Wideawake. Magneto was captured by the government and was taken to a plastic prison when he was trying to save John F. Kennedy who was being assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. Magneto also mentioned that Emma Frost and Banshee was killed and experimented by Bolivar Trask. After Magneto's capture. Mystique went solo and traveled the world to assist mutants. She had found out what Trask was doing and went on a worldwide search for him and freed as many mutants as she could from his wraith.

Original Timeline

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Mystique finds and kills Trask at the Paris peace conference. However the outcome was one she never expected as she was captured by Styrker and was tortured and experimented on.

Magneto and Mystique were later either broken out of their prisons or were released.

X-Men

"Welcome to the future."
―Magneto[src]

In what could be seen as a precursor to the Brotherhood, Lehnsherr was assisted by Raven Darkholme, Toad and Sabretooth in attempt to mutate world leaders at a United Nations summit with a machine. When talking to Robert Kelly after his capture, Lehnsherr referred to mutation as a Brotherhood. When the group's attempt failed, the group disbanded. Lehnsherr and Darkholme were the only members of the group that would join the Brotherhood.

X2: X-Men United

"How does it look from there Charles? Still fighting the good fight? From here it looks like they're not playing by your rules... Maybe it's time to play by theirs!"
―Magneto[src]

The lineup was greatly reduced to Magneto and Mystique only. They teamed up with the X-Men in order to stop William Stryker from killing all of the world's mutants. However at the end of the film, they were joined by Pyro.

X-Men: The Last Stand

"It's only that you realize, while you were talking about organizing and committees, the extermination has already begun. Make no mistake, my brothers. They will draw first blood. They will force their cure upon us. The only question is, will my brotherhood and fight, or wait for the inevitable genocide? Who will you stand with - the humans... or us?"
―Magneto[src]

The Brotherhood was formed by Lehnsherr and John Allerdyce after the cure for mutation was announced by Worthington Labs. They were joined by Phat, Spike and The Omegas, a group of mutants consisting of Callisto, Quill, Psylocke, Arclight at a Mutant Community Action Meeting at the Holy Trinity Church. With the assistance of Callisto, Lehnsherr relocated Raven Darkholme, who had been arrested attempting to break into the FDA. Lehnsherr destroyed the all-but prisoner-transportation truck holding Darkholme and released her as well as James Madrox and Cain Marko. All three released mutants proceeded to join the Brotherhood. Jean Grey also joined the Brotherhood as Phoenix. The team was disbanded after most of the mutants were depowered by the cure and killed by the Phoenix force during the battle on Alcatraz Island.

Team beliefs

  • Homosapiens are inferior.
  • "The Cure" is a way to suppress rather than help mutants.
