Default Should the other X-Men get prequel/origin movies?

Since Wolverine-the indisputable focal point of the entire X-series-is getting his own solo flick, and since Storm apparently has a small part therein, I'm thinking I'd like to see her story developed. Her life in Africa, the events that eld her to the X-Mansion, all of that. They touched on Jean's past in X3 but didn't go into detail, & we've never gotten to know Scott at all, really. How about it? I think there's practically limitless potential if they do it right.

if Storm, Jean and Scott hadn't great roles in the trilogy.... Fox won't be doing spin-offs for them, clearly.

sad, but true (I think)

Hopefully, a Storm prequel would involve someone under 40....

Sadly, they probably would piss all over Storm just as badly as they did in the X-Men movies.
And where the hell did her accent go?

I meant the job she's paid to do.

A solo film just like Origins: Wolverine, I don't think so.

I think they can always incorporate the origin story of the other X-Men through flashbacks and connect it to the story of the film. Just like what they did to Wolverine in X2.

A separate movie just to showcase the origins of 1 character would cost a lot and it might not be as successful as the original trilogy and it could jeopardize the series..

Even XOW didn't seem like a solo movie as evidenced by the need to cram as many mutants as they could into the film for cameos.
