No, just basic Teleport like Nightcrawler. The difference is that she can Teleport huge groups and bigger distances.

But he does also have some Asian in his look, so they might use him for someone else.

Difficult to be certain, since none of us would have guessed Blink would be in the movie. They sure know how to keep us guessing!
I must be the only one on the board that thinks super speed is a really cool power. Its really simple, of course, but this power hasnt been used in its full potential on this franchise yet.

So in my opinion would be really cool to see a x-man having just this power and fighting hand to hand with the rest of the team.

On other hand, we shouldnt forget that this franchise can appeal to kids and young teenagers too, so a character with super speed if done right could be really cool and funny for this part of the audience.

And at the same time, just becase one mutant has super speed doesnt mean he cant be a great fighter body to body, so that could make Thunderbird a great team member, at least for one sequel.

When I read super speed and fighting, I always think of 'The One'.

In the Exiles stories, she did travel into parallel worlds. They might be taking that element.

I guess so, though Thunderbird doesn't have 'superspeed' to the same level as Quicksilver.

If they added a thundery sound effect to it, that might help justify his choice of codename. Most characters have a name that suits their powers, rather than just a name from their culture.

The Thunderbird is a creature of native American mythology that appeared during storms and made the sound of thunder by flapping its wings.

Interestingly, Thunderbird's brother Warpath had even greater superhuman strength/speed and, according to Wikipedia, was "capable of toppling a Sentinel by clapping, the resulting air pressure causing it to collapse."

I didnt know they were brothers.... I guess Warpath is a strong possibility for Booboo then. Although personally Id preffer the x-men of this sequel to be characters who appeared on the 60's and 70's, so Id go with Thunderbird.

Many people has hated that characters like Angel, Riptide or Darwin appeared on FC, so I think Fox/Singer should avoid that from now. Some other fans dont care about comic accuracy, but it would be nice.

And since it seems they are dropping characters like crazy from one movie to another now, why not? he

More than likely he will be a blend of Thunderbird and Warpath, and probably called Thunderbird. The Wikipedia note about his 'thunder-clap' powers against Sentinels seems like something they wouldn't miss the opportunity to use.

I wonder if he will be sacrificed as in the comics, where he leapt on to Count Nefaria's plane as that villain tried to escape and then died when he made the plane blow up.

I think it would be intense if one of Charles x-men dies on the past. That would make the franchise more dramatic and would show that the mutant situation is not a joke.

I know that would feel repetitive, since Darwin died on FC, and Jean on X2 and X3, but death happens daily, even in own our world and the x-men comics, so Bryan and crew shouldnt be shy with it either.

And since Thunderbird is not a A-list x-man, and died early on the comics, he feels like the perfect candidate to die.

it would be incredibly dramatic if wolverine was to be killed in the future by a sentinels, because these films have made him seem invincible so it doesn't look like he can be killed most the time

i doubt it will happen though

They can kill any of the future xmen

It would just raise the stakes for the time traveller and the first class to ensure that future doesn't happen...

Precisely! Which makes me wonder - if they do succeed with changing the past in order to save the future, will this be the "closure" to the old trilogy, or will it remain as a parallel universe to the FC one?

yeah, I doubt it too. Fox/Singer love Wolverine too much to kill him in the movies, even if its an alternate universe, or the timeline is fixed at the end of the movie.

would be pleasantly suprised if they do it, but wont hope for it.

Imagining the audience reaction to Wolverine being blown up is just amazing. I think it would be a massive shame for them not to use that scene because I always felt it was the most memorable scene from the comic.

That wasn't her powers though. That was the technology of the Panoptichron that sent them world hopping.

I don't find them boring but we already had a super fast fighter in X3's Callsto.

Yes, we had it already. It was originally by Bleeding Cool, who are given as the source at the bottom of that article. But it is very interesting

In X3's final act at Alcatraz? If that's what you're referring to, Jean didn't want to vaporize Logan. She was testing him and toying with him.

Trust me, if she really wanted him dead, he would've instantly joined Xavier, Scott and everyone else she murdered and sent to Smithereen Island. His adamantium can't handle her s***.

Maybe by preventing the future with the Sentinels, the X-Men unintentionally create an alternate future with Apocalypse and Sinister instead. Cue X4.

There's a difference to having pieces of your flesh slowly ripped off and being vaporized into a skeleton. Jean did the former, not the latter.
