Default Re: X-Men 3...seriously fans/people--WHY all the hate?

^ I agree. Especially why make Xavier aggressive and unlikable in the same movie he dies in?

Anyway,

I just watched a documentary on Netlix called Wonder Women about superheroines and female action characters. Clips of Jean from TLS were used to exemplify the sexist trope of a woman giving up her power to a hyper-masculine man. I can forgive TLS for being a terrible adaptation of the Phoenix Saga (my own ideas on what should have happened are quite different from the comics too), but I can't forgive it for it's completely lack of creativity and for perpetuating offensive tropes. Jean asking Wolverine to KILL her and then being HAPPY about it when he does actually disgusts me.
