Instead Wolverine gets a half-baked clone. LAME.
Well, she is a major character in some of the comics the film is based on and has a strong connection to Wolverine (they were married at one point), so it makes sense for her to be included. The changes to character, however, may prove to unnecessary.
Feasibly, she could be one of those characters with shared rights (like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver), maybe MS could use her in a film but call the character Madame Hydra?
