I think it'd be more impressive from a cinematic standpoint to see someone like Storm get into battle with the Sentinels and then die at their hands. There is little emotional investment for the audience for her to be dead off-screen before the movie's storyline begins. The stakes for the time traveler(s) would be so much higher for us as viewers if we see their comrades murdered...it creates suspense and a sense of real urgency to go back to "stop things" from happening.

I guess that's why I'm dumbfounded that Bryan apparently is struggling with finding a way to fit Storm into this storyline. I just can't wrap my head around it.
