If they use Wanda (Scarlet Witch) or Jean to do that then great but there should be no time travel.

I wonder who the character will be? Xavier like mentioned above? Will they stick with Kitty like the books or go their own way? And, what will be the event that they have to stop? Killing Senator Kelly isn't an option but killing Xavier probably will be in there.

Yeah, that could work. I think using Prof X in that manner like others have mentioned in WATX is the best way to go about it since both are around and cast. Have him warn himself essentially. As for time travel the 90s animated series did go about it differently and the films have taken a bit of influence from it in the past. No way to know for sure but Millar did say
“You’ve got robots, you’ve got time travel, you’ve got superheroes – it’s got everything in one film… ”
Could be subjective though. Sending a warning or mind swapping to the past of a different timeline via superpowers could still be perceived as a means of timetravel imo.
