Pervious characters from the X-Men Trilogy timeline are different from those of the DOFP timeline so the ones that died or were depowered could still come back.
How will this change anything? X-Men First Class was a prequel...Magneto and the brotherhood are part of the timeline...

How is this at all like what you're suggesting above? Young Biff received that item from his future a time traveler changed the past.

Are you saying future Magneto will travel back to the 60's and tell young Magneto that it's a good idea to kill a public figure on tv?

In X2 after the assassination attempt on the president Cyclops right away accused Magneto. Charles responded saying that although Magneto would be capable of the act he would know that the assassination would hurt his cause...
