That's exactly what I'm saying.
Some characters have not been fully explored (Cyclops, Storm, Gambit), others have been squandered (Juggernaut, Multiple Man, Psylocke, Angel) or otherwise dumped and not used to full potential (Banshee, Emma Frost, Nightcrawler).
I am not sure if it's necessary to call X Force anything other than that. Does it need to be X-Men: X Force? Do we know for sure that the X-Men brand name is a guaranteed attraction or whether it actually leads to audience fatigue if every film has that in the title?
