Oh... and that book.... Jesus Christ I'd be dropping bricks.
Because this plot isn't about retconning things that have happened already in the series because certain fans were unhappy with it.
The original story wasn't about undoing the comics that happened before it to create a new timeline of comics. But that's exactly what people want to happen in order to bring Cyclops and Jean Grey back.
Because in order to bring Cyclops and Jean Grey back, the main trilogy, or very significant pieces of the main trilogy, have to be undone to allow that.
Because the time travel is going back to 1973, to a time period where Cyclops and Jean Grey aren't even involved in, so them coming back at the end has nothing to do with anything that happened.
