The Mutant Cure is a special, anti-mutagenic cure that is capable of removing a mutant's powers. Warren Worthington II created it with Leech's DNA a few years after he found out his son Warren Worthington III was a mutant.


X-Men: First Class

Hank McCoy managed to develop a serum that he believed could suppress a person's physical mutation. However, after being driven to test it on himself, Hank realized that the serum temporarily suppressed the mutation before further enhancing it, turning him into a creature with blue fur.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (1973)

Sometime between 1968 and 1973, Charles Xavier used Hank's serum to regain his mobility, though at the expense of his telepathic abilities. Hank McCoy also used the serum on himself, despite in moderation. Hank's usage allowed him to regain his humanoid form, though he was able to trigger a transformation back to his blue, beast self if pressed.

X-Men: The Last Stand

Developed by Worthington Labs, the Mutant Cure was distributed to mutants who wished to get rid of their powers, Rogue among them. It was to be unveiled in Alcatraz Island, resulting in the Brotherhood of Mutants attacking the island to destroy it. However, with the intervention of the X-Men, the villains were defeated after their leader, Magneto, was injected with four doses of the cure and the world, having a new impression of the mutants, decided against manufacturing the cure.

The Wolverine

Fully recovering from the cure's effects, Magneto accompanied Charles Xavier to an airport to enlist Wolverine's help with fighting the Sentinels.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

By 2023, Rogue also recovered from the cure's effects, as her powers had returned when the Sentinels took over the X-Mansion.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (1973)

Charles Xavier and Hank McCoy both use Hank's serum in order to suppress their mutations, although Xavier overdoses on them. While Hank uses it in moderation, Charles' overusage, despite granting him his mobility, suppressed his power completely. However, after Wolverine convinced Charles to accept his power, and use it to save mutants around the world, Charles gives up his dependence on the cure.

When Magneto uses the Sentinels to take down Hank McCoy/Beast, Beast uses three doses of the cure in order to revert back to his humanoid self. The cure suppressed the X-gene to an extent that the Sentinels, which were programmed to detect the X-gene, were unable to sense any trace of the mutant X-gene within Hank.

X-Men: Apocalypse

As Hank McCoy appears in his humanoid self in 1983, and is able to trigger his transformation into Beast at will, it is unclear whether he has managed to control and toggle between both parts or whether he still uses the serum.

21st Century

As a result of Mystique's heroism in the 1970s, the world had already accepted mutants as part of their society by the year of 2006, thus the cure developed by Worthington Labs never existed.

    • I would assume it would be for all mutants who gain their power back. Rogue would most likely get her powers back as well and it could...
    • Since DOFp changed things a little or a lot depending on how you look at it.  This discussion seems no longer revlent
