Interesting, thanks

And just a couple nitpicks...I don't see how Phoenix and Xavier counts as a "fight", and the second Wolverine/Creed fight is not in Las Vegas, it's in New Orleans.
They were fighting with their powers, so its a fight in a technical sense.

I like The Last Stand's portrayal best, that the Phoenix powers and force come from within herself, a split personality that has taken control, and that she is in fact just as mortal as anyone else.

I don't like supernatural for the sake of supernatural, which is what her spirit surviving as a god like entity sounds like to me.
Funny, just reading that treatment was on the whole a thousand times better than watching X3 for me.

I voted for Jean vs. Cyke, 'cause she's my girl. Love her! God, how I wish Singer would've completed the trilogy. TLS was, well, just not up to par.
Totally agreed with the bolded, following on from X2, it should have been so easy to make an X3 that not only matched X2, but surpassed, and under any other studio and director, it probably would have. But no, we are stuck with Fox.
