'X-Men,' 'Star Trek' & More Sci-Fi Time Travel Timeline Infographics
From Back to the Future to Star Trek and the most recent X-Men: Days of Future Past, there are plenty of timelines in the film world that can be a little hard to follow. Thankfully, Wired took the time to breakdown some of the more iconic time travel timelines into a somewhat easy to follow infographic that charts the time travel in these films from as far back as "a particularly unlikely version of the Old West" to the disastrous "imperfect future." And for a bit of fun, they've also included the insane timeline of one of the more iconic television series of the past decade which included a whole bunch of time jumping. Look below!
Here's the informative and amusing time travel timelines from Wired (click to make larger):
The X-Men timeline sure does jump around quite a bit, but now that we're started further back in the past than the original X-Men in 2000, none of the events from those films really matter anymore. It might be the most functional and stylish reboot we've ever seen that stays true to the nature of the comic book world from which the story was born and resetting the timeline. As for "Lost," well that is just some crazy time travel right there. At least Back to the Future and Star Wars are still easy to follow by comparison. Cool?
