After the success of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox decided to make the last Wolverine movie rated R. Something I believe should have been done from the first film.

The X-Men movie universe has been a shaky one over the last 16 years since the first movie was released in 2000. We went from good to bad to worse to seeing improvement.

X-Men: Apocalypse, the 8th X-Men movie, was a step in the right direction, along with recent entriesĀ Days Of Future Past and First Class.

While it won’t win any critic’s awards, it was a fun summer movie. The action was fantastic. Seeing new X-Men introduced brought out my inner geek. And the story was engaging.

Now, let’s get to the leadership lessons from X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Shattering Of Trust

It’s confession time. As a young person, I used to love comics. Like seriously love comic books.

Every Tuesday I would head to the local comic shops: Homerun Comics, Lange’s Sports Connection, Campus Sports, and one other comic book store I can’t recall the name of (But I can recall the owners, the location, and even the smell of the store).

Comics were huge to me. They also caused my trust to be shattered in a way that still sticks with me.

Holy cow has this been a blockbuster year for superhero movies! Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-man 2 have already released. This past Friday was the release of the newest X-Men movie, Days Of Future Past.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past has probably been the superhero movie I’ve most anticipated. I grew up on the X-Men. I devoured any X-Men comic book I could get my hands on, even the off-shoots and mini-runs of comics. They were what I loved to immerse myself in!

So, when they announced one of the coolest comic book storylines was being released at the theater, I was ecstatic. And I knew I had to see it opening weekend. I also knew I had to look for leadership lessons in the X-Men universe.

A Reel Leadership Article

One of my favorite comic book characters growing up was Wolverine. He was a tough, no-holds-barred man who was searching for his past and trying to reconcile who he was.

To this day, his past is still somewhat of a mystery. But today a bit more of his story gets released in the new movie The Wolverine.

This got me thinking about the leadership lessons I learned while reading about his exploits in the Marvel comic book series.

Having been a part of the X-Men, Avengers, Alpha Flight, and other superhero teams, Wolverine has been around the block. He’s fought multiple villains, faced death, and been transformed.

His story is intriguing and we can learn quite a bit from his journey.

There’s more to you than you think: During the Fatal Attractions storyline, we see Wolverine have the adamantium torn off of his skeleton. What happened next shocked many readers. He survived and, surprisingly, still had his claws.
