it's just placed ahead of the others in chronology. But it still counts as an extension of the series.
But have fun with whatever exciting and new counting systems you and Psylockecolossus can come up with.
I wasn't using that counting method literally, it was an example. And another post goes over your head.
But still, there's a reason prequels are never numbered, if they were, they'd HAVE to be negative. You think First Class would EVER be called X-Men 4? Hell no.

Exactly, it's like people want to rebel just because. Just answer the damn question the way the original poster wants it to be answered, is that so hard?
