Days Of Future Past: What To Expect From The X-Men: First Class Sequel | 2013: A Bad Luck Year
2013: A Bad Luck Year

So what’s so bad about this future? Well, in the comic’s 2013, mutants are a carefully controlled minority subject to giant, near-unstoppable robots called Sentinels and collared to prevent them from using their powers. Humans with anomalous genes are prevented from reproducing, lest they give birth to more mutants, and the whole of North America is under the Sentinels’ control. Because the Sentinels were programmed with too-broad mission parameters, they have usurped control of the country in order to complete their anti-mutant mandate – and now have their eyes on expansion to the rest of the world to stop the mutant menace wherever they find it. The rest of the planet plans to answer this aggression with nuclear force, so Kate’s mission is to stop a global thermonuclear war.

During the original series wasn't there a sentinal like robot attacking a group of x-men during a training sequence? More
