X-Men: Days of Future Past has some great villains, and this is our first glimpse of how insidiously helpful they are.
Trask Industries, as led by Founder Boliver Trask, is all about protecting humanity and the greater good. Which sounds nice, except for the part where protecting humanity is equated with killing all mutants. A new viral website launched recently dedicated to Trask Industries, and it's decidedly friendly upon first glance. Of course, there are quotes from Boliver Trask, like this one, that give us some pause:
The mutant threat is the defining issue of our time. We can choose to stem the impending tide of extinction or we can stand by passively and allow it to wash away any remnants of our species.
But don't worry about that -- look at this relaxing video!
That's nice. Those mildly sinister-looking robots of possible death are keeping us safe!
In addition to the video, we also get a host of images of Trask Industries' Sentinels as they quietly and benevolently watch over human kind. There are also a few posters that we, in no way, think are the equivalent of a loaded gun or a nuclear detonation. No, sir. Everything is on the up-and-up at Trask Industries.
Check out our gallery dedicated to the benevolent corporation and see for yourself. And when you're done, send help!
