Doesn't matter. Warpath is essentially a more powerful version of Thunderbird, and for the sake of a movie adaptation they will be seen as interchangeable. We're hardly likely to see both ever appear, or to see an exact differentation between them, given that most other intricate connections from the comics haven't made it into the films.
