What is your definition of "so many characters"....two? Scott and Xavier? I already gave the meaning of their deaths in my first post.

There was funeral scene for Xavier to express loss, and even Magneto himself expressed regret about Xaviers death while defending him against Pyro's comments.

He was connected to the man who invented the mutant cure, I won't continue to argue this point with you, I've already stated what his purpose was to the movie. People who wanted a Warren Worthington III billionaire playboy living in a penthouse are just people who are comic book loyalist who feel insulted because the story broke comic book cannon for the sake of motion picture creative license.

Nor was she intended to be connected to the cure. Why in the world would The Phoenix be connected to a cure for mutants?

Yeah I do like the movie and think that it's criticized way too harshly because of the death of two beloved characters whose deaths in my opinion raised the stakes of what is constantly being referred to as a war, PEOPLE DIE DURING WAR, ...and X-3 showed that everything doesn't just end all hunky dory and that everybody just walks away during a time of war.
