I couldn't agree with you more. It doesn't add doesn't make sense. However, I think that eliminating Banshee and Havok (with or without explanation--I really don't think movie audiences got attached to either character to really care one way or the other) is the lesser of two creative evils. And yet so many fans here want to cleave to this existing franchise and continue to make work what is clearly no longer "workable" as you put it. You already know what I believe is the solution to this problem. But we won't go there again today.
