To not develop Cyclops (the key and ORIGINAL X-Man) at the expense of fleshing out Logan as the "main man" misses the point of the entire X-Men mythos, don't you agree? How can you say he "handled them all very well" when his entire foundation was paved incorrectly from jump? He created a dynamic that eventually led to the demise of two of the three characters. Even without Ratner's X3, there was nowhere for movie Scott/Jean's relationship to go but down really.

And don't even get me started on Storm. LOL He made one of Marvel's greatest--and best known--heroines a friggin 12-year long laughingstock. And we can't blame Halle for all of it, because Bryan cast her in the first place.

There are 4 "core" X-Men in my opinion (Cyclops, Jean, Storm and Logan). These are all top-tier Marvel characters--even outside the X-Men ensemble. He got 1 out of 4 right. That's failure to me, Project862006. Do you see what I'm saying?

But that's the past. Believe me, I'm actually over it. I'm only bringing this up now because Bryan's involved again and I am concerned how it will determine the future.

"Give The Rights Back To Marvel" is officially now a thing.
