The First X-Men Script Featured Tickling And Giant Nostrils
It's hard to imagine a time before the X-Men films' blatant disregard for internal logic was confusing moviegoers. But back in 1984, five years before even Tim Burton's Batman, comic book writers Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas were hired to do an X-Men script. And it's ... weird.
For one thing, Professor X isn't in a wheelchair, either because of an executive's note or because no one wanted to build ramps on the set. They also weren't allowed to use the word "mutant," because it would "prejudice the studio against a project."
On the wackier side of things, the plot concerned a psychic vampire raising a sentient landmass, and his secret base was on Easter Island. The X-Men are trained in mere days by Prof. X, but then Wolverine temporarily turns evil because he's "seduced" by the villain's daughter, Carmilla. In the end, the villain turns into a "half-crystal entity," but is defeated after Kitty Pryde uses her powers to ... tickle him?
