Default Re: Who should the focus be on in DOFP??

A further thought...

I thought the way Xavier recruited the mutants (in the 1975 Second Genesis tale) was excellent, and better than what we got on screen. He astrally projected himself around the world, finding the best team possible to take on Krakoa and rescue the original team. It gave a great sense of international scale, and allowed us to see Storm in her native Africa, Thunderbird bringing down a bison, Nightcrawler escaping a lynch mob, Colossus saving his sister from a runaway tractor on his farm in Siberia. Very cinematic stuff.

Also, Jean Grey's backstory in the comics is better, as she tries to save her dying friend after a car crash.

Probably too late now, but it would be so good to see some of that on screen.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
