    Good, I like AoA but I don't think it would fit the movie-'vers

    More that they don't want to go through the hassle of explaining alternate universes and futures, after just doing a film about that.

    Mystique may well still do it. After all, in at least half the versions of this impossibly clouded continuity that I can remember, Logan asked for the procedure. While he always wakes up confused/enraged, a big part of the trauma is the idea that someone was going to try to weaponize and then exploit him as an assassin for several years. Under more friendly circumstances, I'm not sure it would've been taken in quite the same way.

    Why would Mystique do that to Logan? Or rather, why would she subject a fellow mutant to such a horrific procedure? We know Raven can be harsh and willing to outright murder but only in defense of her kind. If you recall, she was running black ops in Vietnam liberating mutants being used by the Army. And she seemed to be horrified at what the members of Magneto's first Brotherhood went through under Trask's tender mercies. I don't know, considering the turn her character took at the end of the movie, it would seem extremely odd she would then turn and rescue Logan only to **** him over with such a procedure.

    Mystique has no reason to follow through on Stryker's plan since she was against experimentation on Mutants. See her reaction to the deaths of Banshee and the first Brotherhood. She has a reason for taking custody of Logan's prone body, but it is unclear what it is, but it is definitely not for experimentation. That would make her whole mission hypocritical.

    Edit: Ninja'd.

    Inadvertent continuity snauf this movie inadvertently fixes: Walking Xavier from "Origins" and "The Last Stand" with him getting paralyzed in the '60s, however we also see '70s walking Xavier in "DoFP" with his walking / mental power dampening drug. It's a close-enough explanation! Good enough for me!

    As I noted, Hank could adjust the serum so that he could walk and still have some of his power.

    If somebody already posted these, apologies. Amazon has got some awesome looking collector's items packaged with the blu-rays when they're released.

    UK (Cerebro helmet)

    US (Magneto helmet)

    I'd only buy the one with the Magneto helmet if the damn thing is wearable and it's not something that only a cat could wear like the Master Chief helmet of the Halo 3 Legendary edition. :p

    I'd walk around the neighborhood in that helmet, lifting my arm straight in front of me as cars approached.

    I'd wear it and walk up to people and say. "Can you read my mind?" When they say no, I'd give the helmet a little double tap on the side, and give the person a calm yet triumphant look.

    If he controls magnetism, then those cops wouldn't have a chance to do anything. :p

    That's weird. Why are they still selling movies that don't count anymore?

    Same reason they are still selling Star Trek films, Star Wars novels, etc.

    Money!

    Because they lead into "Days Of Future Past" and are referenced in the film.

    I just finished the comic story of Madelyne Pryor . I really think Madelyne Pryor is probably the most tragic character of X-Men comics. She was a very nice person in the beginning. If Scott had not abandoned her and she later found her life was just a lie, she would not have become the Goblin Queen. Scott was a HUGE jerk in this story, how could he abandon his wife and child simply because Jean was back?

    I've pretty much hated Scott since that story. It's not like it's hard to do these days.

    Did he ever regret for that later? Especially towards Nathan.
