I really can't give an opinion that's not full of bitterness.
I mean, I really enjoyed First Class... but the whole franchise spat on Cyclops, and he was my favourite x-man.... it's just really really hard to let that go...
Why oh why oh why could it not just have been a reboot
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
