Another clip has dropped from X-Men: Apocalypse, this one giving us a look at the first time Scott Summers emits beams of energy from his eyes.

High school can be tough for anyone, but it’s especially difficult for mutants finding their key differences for the first time during school. The clip below sees Scott Summers (Tye Sheridan) in class, learning about the events in Days of Future Past no less, when he notices there’s something seriously wrong with his eyes. Cue a jock receiving his comeuppance of sorts.

X-Men: Apocalypse, which will also see the early stages of Cyclops’ relationship with Jean Gray (Sophie Turner), aka Phoenix, will open in Australia on May 19 and in the U.S. on May 27.




Synopsis for X-Men: Apocalypse:

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
