And don't forget Bryan's X1 had a questionable line too and it was "do you know what happens to a Toad when it gets struck by a lightning" from Storm.
The reason I can't stand them isn't because they are cheesy, it's because they were stolen. I can't stand "buzzwords," which is what they are. "Never again" is a slogan for chrissake. Same thing with "don't ask don't tell" and anything with pride in it, they have political connotations now. I understand that the x-men are supposed to have parallels with minority rights, but please, keep them as parellels
. Don't take stuff that's already used. Using buzzwords is just cheap writing. It's my biggest complaint about FC, it is filled with half-baked, pseudo social parellels, and instead of actually exhibiting them, it just talks about them.
Singer used parallels to gay rights also. But he didn't do it in a cheap way, like saying mutant pride and don't ask don't tell, again political buzzwords. He depicted it by having a scene where Bobby "comes out" to his parents. That's what I would rather see in a movie.
