Default Re: Do you think a MCU approach to the X-Men film series would be a good idea?

Wolverine's "lone gunfighter" persona is the same as Storm being a living goddess in Africa? Or Cyclops and Jean's romantic dramas? Or Beast as the erudite and sophisticated genius, trapped in the body of a fairy-tale "Beast"? Or Emma Frost, the pornstar hottie school headmistress?

The only thing the X-characters have in common is *usually* a universal hatred from the vox populi, but other than disenfranchisement, each character has a very different story arc individually.
