Default Re: Should DOFP be used to reboot the X-Men franchise?

I'm fine with reboots when they're warranted, and rebooting the X-Franchise isn't.

BTW, anyone trying to use the Abrams Star Trek as an equivalent example here has a fundamental misunderstanding about how and why that story worked.

The 2009 Mortal Kombat game is a much better and more accurate comparison example based on everything that we know about DoFP's story.
