Default Re: What would have made "X-Men: The Last Stand" the best of the series:

Dude, how old are you? 10? 12? The Junior novel isn't considered canon, especially in areas where it directly contradicts what's clearly established in the film OR the official novelization. In the film she does not admit to killing Scott. In the novel she does not admit to killing Scott. Logan asks what happens and she acts confused and withdraws and says something along the lines of "Oh God... kill me before I kill someone else". What you're trying to quote is not established in either medium and contradicts both. It's meant to simplify things for younger readers, but whatever it changes has about as much weight as any piece of unofficial fanfiction would.

Furthermore, your junior novel only proves what I've been saying about the film itself. That it contradicts things clearly laid out and established in the previous two films, including promises made by characters known for their integrity, things they would not say unless they intended to actually keep them. To actually keep these things consistent would have made the film better.

He'd never believed in life after death until Jean had died, and he still wasn't sure what he believed, but he believed in something. Maybe he just believed in her.
