Vietnam War, Recruitment Into Team X - (1973/1974?) - 1975
James and Victor reunite and join the tail end of the Vietnam War. Victor attempts to rape a young woman, leading to him brutally slaughtering the soldiers that attempt to stop him. James comes to his aid, and they are both placed in front of a firing squad. Major William Stryker, the man that imprisoned Mystique, comes to recruit Jimmy and Victor into his own private unit, Team X.
Note: Stryker seems to have aged significantly in the span of two years.
