And why not? He's written alot of the X-Men comics. He certainly would know 'em better than Kinberg or Rothman or Ratner ever could.

One e-mail won't do it. How about an organized flood of e-mails or a petition, real or electronic to FOX demanding that they do an X4 that fixes this tripe?

When Jean, Scott, Beast, and Ro were all students together and train Jean would sorta focas on her telepathy, and not her telekinisis as much. One time Ro had created a few drops of water for Jean to focas her tk with. She was so into she could actually see the hydrogen and oxigen (sp) molecules. But she wasn't focasing on the world around her. She needed to learn BALANCE which she never did.
Now, as far as I know the Phoenix was created out of Jean's subconcious out of control telekinictic powers. That is what was demolucurizing everyone, and it was also what was leaking radiation and electro magntic energy.


I really liked the final battle in the book. (TIDAL WAVE) And the last fight was SOOOOOOOoooooooo much better. No "I love you" Bull. He told her, "Be well." He didn't have to say it. She knew. It was nice.


A Jean/Logan moment that didn't make me vomit
I loved the flashback part.

This was a great book; this is why I always get the novel. It expands so much. There are always things I wish were in the movie, but nevertheless, I had a blast reading it. It had a much better ending, too-except for the Magneto epilogue.

I agree. It's a great book. Unfortunately it's a great book based off a bad film. Which means it's forced to follow a bunch of events which were wrong to begin with. So as good as it is written, I have to hate it. It's makes for great stress relief when you hear the thud it makes when it hits the wall.

I wouldn't have read the book if I didn't like the movie.

I read the book to get some answers and clarify things in the movie. Unfortunately I didn't get alot of them, so I use mainly as reference material for rewrites and fanfics

What happens in the bar scene??

That's what I'm wondering about too. The only version of the X2 movie I can find is one who's only bonus features is a commentary track. now come on I know there's gotta be more than that!

I agree what you say about the novel. It raises even more questions than it answers by giving you all this tantalizing information and never following up on it. You get the impression that Jean really is in more control of herself than anyone in the movie would give her credit for, that she's aware of what's happening and considers it wrong, there are lots of flashbacks to her better days with Scott, lots of references to things that Scott told her, words of wisdom, etc. So that she's not really on the dark side but more like... still on the fence. And the only reason why she can't come back is because of her realization that she may have killed Scott, and without Scott there really is no going back or nothing to look forward to. Which only frustrates myself and others even more, because if Scott's fate is really as ambiguous as it's made out to be (making his survival more and more likely), then why not bring him back and save the both of them for goodness sake? It's practically screaming to be done.

And yes, I know about the group shots you're talking about, with Xavier and his crew in the President's office. Jean is with them. Was that for promotional / teaser purposes only? Did they do it because Famke was in costume and didn't want her to go to all that trouble just to be left out of the picture? Or is there really another possible ending where she doesn't die?

I've read it, too. Actually, it was the one which is similar to the movie. Anyway, is it possible for you to find that pic (though I've seen it before) ?
