Empire's New X-Men: First Class Covers
Check out Magneto or Professor X

28 March 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

The latest issue of Empire (out this Thursday!) brings you not one but two X-ceptional looks at the most eagerly awaited cast of superheroes this side of The Avengers. That's right, it's a two-for-one look at Professor X and his X-Men: First Class cohorts. Decisions, decisions.

In the blue corner is the young Charles Xavier, Professor X (James McAvoy), lent sturdy support from Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Hank "Beast" McCoy (Nicholas Hoult). If nefariousness is more your thing, you can join the dark side with Magneto and co. on the red version. Mwawahahaha...

Sorry, where were we? Oh yes, the second cover boasts Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Emma Frost (January Jones) and Nightcrawler's teleporting dad Azazel (Jason Flemyng). Personally speaking, we'd bagsy a spot in any club January Jones is a member of, even if it's called the Hellfire Club and lists death and destruction among its key goals. But, as Cilla would say, the choice is yours.

Which is your favourite? Want to buy both? Well, now you can - simply head over to our special site and you can buy the cover you want online.

Subscribers, meanwhile, can balance their peace-loving and direct-action-advocating sides, with a cover showing both Professor X and his frenemy Magneto in Matthew Vaughn's film. Don't say we never do anything nice for you.

Like the look of our subscriber-only cover? Well, you can get them every month when you simply subscribe today for the very special price of £33 for the entire year!

Delve into Empire's packed May issue for incredible behind-the-scenes access to the X-prequel, including interviews with Matthew Vaughn and his cast. It's on sale from March 31. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, will be in a cinema near you from June 2.

RE: Subscribers cover
Is that shot of Fassbender the only decent one available? It appears on the cover, and i] in the same article inside the new issue. Seriously, no other shots?... I'm leaning towards the cheap marketing theory too. Those floating heads in the crotch posters were, for such a big title, simply awful. More

RE: Empire's New X-Men: First Class Covers
L: henryj2112 The marketing campaign looks cheap... agree with Henry. The make-up / costumes look... cheap. Especially Frost and Azazel. Looking at them, I'm reminded of a 1960s TV show. It's 2011. X-men movies shouldn't be making me think of Eartha Kitt in /i]. More

RE: Empire's New X-Men: First Class Covers
The jury's massively out for me on this film. The marketing campaign looks cheap and I wasn't gagging to see the film after the trailer. I want to see a great X-Men film, and i'm bored of waiting. More
