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.

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.
He's been involved for the last 2-3 years.
