    Since the Phoenix saga was a tragic saga in the comics, what with the death of Jean and all. Should the movies mirror this by killing off a major character. Or would it be too much like the ending of X2?

    Well very few people ever really die in the comics. My point was at the time people thought she was dead, until they brought her back. She sacrificed herself.
     
  5. I think killing off Magneto would make a emotional scene between Eric and Xavier. It would also make way for the Magneto Movie.

    Yeah Magneto is who I thought, because he would have the most weight without messing with the franchise too much.

    The death of a major character would ensure, or at least make very likely, that the franchise would be discontinued after the trilogy.

    Milking it for more money out of greed is a good idea when you want to destroy a successful franchise, much like what happened with the Star Trek franchise. If the movies are discontinued after X3 at least for a little breather, I'd be ever so happy.

    Killing Magneto would be weird...Isn't he always been a big part of the X-men. They need to do Astroid M and stuff, Man.

    The third one will most likely be that last, for a while atleast. if they were to continue it they would have to get rid of some characters. They have way too many as it is and fans still aren't satisfied. They don't have to kill anybody but it usually works better in terms of story then just having a character leave (or atleast makes more of an impact). If they continue with the amount of characters they would have to make tons of movies for everyone to atleast get some story lines and development. Even the comics usually only have a limited amount of characters at any different time.

    It's sad but the character that would be the best and easiest to get rid of is the one they never will. Despite the fact he is getting his own spinoff.

    Jean Grey never really died in the original comic Phoenix saga. Her true body was in some cacoon under the ocean, apparently. The body everyone else was seeing was a clone, or something. It's really confusing, lol.

    Pejo....get in here! :p

    While piloting the damaged Starcore space shuttle through a solar flare, Jean Grey's telekinetic sheild failed. If not for the fact that she were in zero gravity, she would have been dust. She was pretty much dead. All that remained was her counsciousness. But then she heard music. She saw a light. Standing in that light was a figure; a figure which offered to save her life if the two may become one. Jean took the creature's hand and the woman known as Phoenix was born. Much to her surprise, a spark of Jean's consciousness remained in her original body. She could not abandon herself, so she wrapped her wounded body in a cacoon of sustaining and healing energy until a time at which it would thrive. Upon Phoenix' death, the portion of Jean's cousiousness that lived on whithin Phoenix was released and eventually reintegrated into the original Jean, whose healed body was discovered by the Avengers some time after her death.

    Now...as for death in X-Men 3...I don't see it as much of a necessity, especially not with Jean. She died once, and she came back. If she's anything at all like her comic counterpart, she'll come back, over and over and over again; not so much because it's suddenly fashionable these days, but rather, she is a Phoenix, and that is what they do. And I like all these characters too much *cough*lie*hack*killstorm*cough*So no...no death for me.

    Quit smoking!!!


    Anyhow, I think any death would be of the generic kind. The "third mutant from the left in act II sene four" or something like that. No major characters will probably die, although Magneto seems like an obvious choice for another of those "is he or isn't he" dead scenes.

    It'd be cool if they thought they killed Magneto, so he could disappear for a movie or two, and then he comes back with Asteroid M. "Ha!Ha! Had you going there, X-Fools!!!"

    When I first saw Daredevil, I wished they had the guts to let Elektra stay dead. Right now I don't have much faith in any major character dying.

    I liked the Thunderbird character from wayback, and thought in the movie, they should have a student die for the cause like he did. I think it would add more realism. I read he had a brother called Warpath that blamed Xavier for his death and was bent on revenge. Maybe they could make him part of the Brotherhood.

    I always wanted to see Wolverine and Thunderbird square off as they were the two hotheads of the group. I think the whole reason X-Men bacame popular in the '70's was for pretty basic reasons. Yeah, the characters were richer than the original mutants but let's face it...they were more violent! Young boys hyped on testosterone would rather read about guys battling it out with their genetically enhanced dukes instead of laser beams and snowballs.
