Yea that would have worked too, I mean either way these two plot points were too big to shove together in such a short movie. We didn't have an x4 and you were asking what characters you would omit from the existing movies, so I'd have to say Phoenix since there wasn't a movie afterward to switch things around with and the cure isn't a character haha.
But yea, either way. I would have just saved jean for a more monumental come back done right. I'd rather some characters NOT be on screen rather than be completely wasted and embarrassed. Like juggernaut or Phoenix. I would love to see these characters, but I could absolutely do without the ones we got.
