Ultimate xmen...close to the original xmen, you can restart the franchise without technicaly disregarding the original and it's alot more flexible to play with story lines
Because, as a whole, the movie X-Men and Utlimate X-Men were horribly similar to begin with.
Think about some of the characters we've seen as "X-Men" in the ultimate line.
Now, how many of those characters have been X-Men (or at least allies...) so far in the movies? All but Dazzler.
The new Ultimate team is going in a different direction, but that won't last for long, and still features Wolvie, Storm, Angel, etc.
