With a franchise that randomly pics mutants and throws them in logic hasnt really played that part in all fairness.
I know, and I'm hoping DoFP clears that up a bit.
But Rachel seems odd to me, because the Jean and Scott we know from the future didn't have a daughter, and we haven't yet met the Jean and Scott from the First Class series. So you are asking the mainstream audience to accept that somewhere there was another Jean and Scott... And since the characters in First Class haven't even met Jean and Scott, how will they accept a daughter.
"Hi, I'm Rachel Summers. I'm the daughter of Scott, who you don't yet know but is the brother of Alex, who you do know - except you didn't know he had a brother - and Jean, who you don't yet know but is the lover of Scott, except you didn't know that yet. Got that."
I just think it's too confusing.
