On the Vagaries of Mutation

I'm brand new to the X-Men: First Class fandom and Marvel in general, having only taken an interest in the former after watching the film for the first time last week and in the latter thanks to the two latest entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor and Captain America, both of which I'd no notion of until a month ago. Basically, I know squat about the comics and, being the completionist that I am, felt I ought to expand my knowledge base in that direction to better understand the characters and settings. After briefly skimming Wikipedia, then TV Tropes for information, though, I admit I've lost any desire to peruse the comics myself.

Not only are there shallow concerns like the art styles not agreeing with my personal tastes (I much prefer the design sensibilities of Bill Willingham's Fables, FYI), but the proliferation of alternate universes, mess of continuity snarls, and constant resurrection of major figures like Jean Grey (Phoenix indeed!), necessitating one hilariously ludicrous retcon after another to create even the flimsiest illusion of the narrative cohesiveness I tend to enjoy in my other fandoms... Well, it's all very confusing and way too daunting for this prospective reader. I want to get familiar enough with Marvel to participate in fannish activities but have little experience dealing with the frustrations inherent in shared universes of the sort that comprise Marvel's mainstream titles and, for that matter, DC's.

Long story short, I hope a few kind souls in this community might answer my questions about existing canon, specifically how certain mutations work. I'd like to continue my thus far successful tactic of focusing on the movies and merrily ignoring the comics, but I find I really can't until I satisfy my curiosity on this subject.

Love is a Sickness - a video about my favorite doomed couples

Since I have an unhealthy amount of obsession and fascination with pairings that are either doomed from the start or are meant to self-destruct, I eventually decided to make a video about a few of my favorites - including, yes, Charles and Erik. Because hello self-destructive love.
"Doomed couples of doom" was the working title and the song is "Sickness" by Johnossi.

Basically it's about those of my favorite fictional relationships that end in tragedy. It has six different pairings (hetero, slash and femslash) from six different fandoms, canon as well as fanon.
I hope it's okay to share this video here. If not, I'm terribly sorry - please let me know and I'll delete it immediately. ^^

Warnings: sex & violence ?
Spoilers for: X-Men: First Class, The social Network, BBC Merlin (season 1 only), New Moon, Eclipse, The Runaways, Black Swan
