X-Men First Class: Modal Verb for Ability - CAN

I love all the X-Men sequels and prequels. This one is one of my favorites. You can't miss it.

I. Watch the movie segment and match the mutant's number with what they can do. Mutants are people who have special gifts with which they can perform actions regular people usually can't. What can these mutants do?


1. Hank

2. Mystique

3. Darwin

4. Banshee

5. Angel

6. Alex

( ) Break objects with his/her voice

( ) Create and throw shiny circles at objects and destroy them

( ) Hold objects with his feet

( ) Fly

( ) Adapt his physical characteristics in order to survive in different environments

( ) Spit fire balls

( ) Change his/her physical characteristics to look like someone else

II. Which of the mutants above would you like to be? Which one has the most interesting power?

III. Work in small groups. Imagine that your group will create a mutant with special gifts. Write 5 things your mutant CAN do. Your teacher (or the class) will decide which mutant is the most interesting one.



Answer key:


4, 6, 1, 5, 3, 5, 2

Dear Silvina,
I have just downloaded it myself by clicking on the link MOVIE SEGMENT DOWNLOAD. It is working just fine. Are you using an Apple device? If so, I do not know how to do it.
