Except for, y'know, that time a Thor movie, a Captain America movie and an X-Men movie were all released in the same summer. lol
X-Men didn't start off as the uber-popular film franchise it became by the time The Last Stand was released. It premiered, built its fanbase up, and became that uber-popular franchise. Just like Thor and Cap will.
Sorry for the off-topic interjection, just think it's a little silly when people try to act like Thor and Cap are nothing franchises beneath the lowly majors. They're about to see huge boosts for their sequels, and were already reasonably big for first-timers.
As for the topic of this thread, the answer is that Madame Hydra probably won't show up in any of these movies, so it's a non-issue.
