While the x-men in the past are figuring stuff out, the consequences lead to events unfolding in the future. It keeps the spirit of the comic, while also doing away with the time travel aspect, which wont carry over well to film if you ask me. Also, see Senator Kelly replaced with the Kennedy assassination, ala the Cuban Missile Crisis.

At least that's what I think.
It's a possibility that has crossed my mind too. Having the future be the precognitive visions of someone (Destiny, Bishop) is one way round it, except how do they know those predictions are real and not just some lunatic's insane ramblings?

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
