It still remains to be seen whether X-Men: First Class will be able to shake the curse of its predecessors, but the first trailer (seen below) goes a long way in soothing my fears. The trailer does a good job of establishing the story without giving away too many details.
I like centering the story around Kennedy and the infamous Bay of Pigs Cuba missile crisis. I think it's a genius combination of real world events and the emergence of the mutants to a world stage.
Not being a comic book junkie, I couldn't tell you if the story in the movie follows a comic book story arc, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does. Either way, it should translate into an interesting movie.
