I actually like X-Men 3 just because it does big, crazy, depowering, characters dying off, etc. which is actually more in the vibe of most X-Men comics than the first two flicks, which are great, but are more about setting up the world and playing with the thematic subtext and rules of the world. But if you sit down and read, like, any X-Men comic that's like a big number (50, 100), a relaunch, an annual, a mini-series, X-Men characters are dying and being reborn constantly. It's like their thing. This is a small thing that apparently I only dug.
