Re: Rila Fukushima as Yukio
We're only having a discussion. No need to get worked up over it. Nobody said she needs to be adapted that way. Just that a couple of us thought it might work out nicely (obviously you disagree).
I also think it's quite a stretch to say that Yukio accomplishing things without relying on her mutant powers is part of the essence of her character and what makes her strong. Her power just doesn't lend itself to accomplishing much of anything, even when it comes to the seemingly sporadic instances she actually has visions. She doesn't have much choice in relying on them or not. The fact that Yukio is an accomplished fighter has little to do with her power either way.
I also don't think that having Yukio develop some secondary minor psychic powers is such a leap of imagination as you try to paint it.
