Also, while there are a handful of less than desirable plot points throughout the series, and a couple minor shaky continuity issues, the timeline and overall progression of the series isn't nearly as borked as people make it out to be. The only real continuity issue of any significance is the details of Xavier's paralysis, but the actual contradiction of that is so minor and insignificant it's hardly worth noticing. It really is nothing more than a "whoops, they didn't keep that accurate", then you move on because it has zero bearing on the actual story.
X-Men is the last film franchise that needs a reboot or should be getting one. It started off strong, had a couple disappointments, and then picked itself right back up and brought itself back to high quality. If this franchise needs anything, it's a hiatus, not a reboot. I feel like there's X-Men / Wolverine fatigue coming from this franchise starting to over extend itself.
