Except...not to beat a dead horse...they aren't starting clean. They locked themselves into a 2023 that they now must follow. Cyclops and Phoenix fall in love and are still alive...no matter what any enemy does to them. Rogue must somehow get that white streak. Beast is not going to be killed by any enemy that they face. Etc etc etc etc. It was an unbelievably stupid move in an otherwise great concept.
