Why, for the love of every god ever, would people who are WILLINGLY PAYING to go see a movie about "weird super-powered mutants" roll their eyes at time travel, when (1) they're already expecting to suspend their disbelief to the point that they accept mutants, and (2) time travel is a widely used science fiction concept that it (as well as super-powered people) just isn't weird anymore?
