Re: Which X-Men Should die or be dead in DOFP?
Hmmm.. Well if they don't use an alternate future, then Jean and Scott are dead and Xavier could well be kept dead rather than using that braindead twin nonsense!
Here's my thoughts (off the top of my head, while at work)
Storm, Wolverine, Kitty, Colossus, Angel, Nightcrawler, Magneto all appear in future but are gradually killed off (many of them after the time travel), making the time travel more desperate and necessary than ever.
Rogue is sent back in time, having absorbed the powers of some of the dying mutants. She is given a personal stake after seeing her boyfriend Iceman killed.
Already dead in the future - as seen on a huge field of hundreds/thousands of gravestones (camera pans out into the distance to show the huge death toll) - are Beast, Iceman, Banshee, Havok, Mystique, Pyro, Emma Frost, Gambit, Sabretooth, Juggernaut, Multiple Man, and all of the Fantastic Four. (I'd love Kelsey's Beast back but somehow it's doubtful, and killing Iceman would save on special effects as well as give Rogue a reason to travel back in time)
Killed in the past are Riptide, Angel Salvadore.
Not sure about how I'd handle Bishop or Cable. If there is a time machine, then Forge could be included to invent it.
