Follow these instructions to enter and win the contest:

2) Click the ‘Get Started’ button, and if you are not already a member, register for the site.

3) Correctly answer each trivia question.

4) Complete the X-Men themed “Photo Challenge” with a creative, original submission.

And that’s it! There are also runner-up prizes available in the form of movie t-shirts and more.

Good luck!
