((OOC: Fitting In to 'First Class'.))  
Okay, so I have been crazily excited about 'X-Men: First Class' coming out and working out how to fit it into Victor's timeline, and this is pretty much what I've come up with:

Non-Spoiler Version: The Vietnam War in which Victor and Logan were involved lasted from 1955-1975; the events of 'X-Men: First Class' are centred around the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Victor and Logan completed a tour of Vietnam pre-1962, and returned to the States where they were potentially present for the events of the movie. After this they were called up for service in Vietnam once more, and it was during this time that Victor went batshit and the feral brothers ended up becoming a part of Team X.

This part of his backstory will apply to all 'verses; when RPing Victor from this era, I'll be using the 'Team X' icons to identify him as being younger.

Same as above - but this also explains why Logan is present for a brief cameo during the movie! 8D As in the comics, I'm going to go with Xavier (and presumably Erik, for the movie version) having approached Victor before Logan - and Victor giving pretty much the same answer.

It's entirely possible that Victor somehow became involved with the covert mutant operations surrounding the crisis, but this is something I'm hoping to work through by playing out threads with 'First Class' muses on SWS and elsewhere.
