Now the X-Men films were good, don't get me wrong, but is with Wolverine. Why call the movies X-Men, because it seemed like Wolverine got all the attention in every movie. They took away the other character rightful places, and made them something else. My favorite character of X-Men was made into a cry baby pussy(which was Cyclops), who was the field leader, and one of the made X-Men in the comics. They barely gave him any screen time in any of the films, and killed him off the first 7 minutes of the third film.

Why did Marvel do that to the X-Men, whom was suppose to be a team, and not just a single character.

They figure that the majority of those watching the movie don't read comics. Most people, however, have heard of Wolverine more than most comic characters.

They want to make money. That's the bottom line.

I blame Superman.

The original director for X-Men 3, left to direct Superman Returns. His replacement, was Bret Rattner. Brett was successfull with Rush Hour 1-3, but with an action/comic book movie?

He failed.

What was up with the Phoenix? And yes, Cyclop's death was messed up. As was Proffessor X's....

And, to be fair, Wolverine was used a lot. Still, they needed a lead role, someone who was a good actor (Jackman), and could serve as the X-Men's symbol/poster boy.

And c'mon, who doesn't like Wolvie?

I don't like how much he is over-rated.



And stop whining about how your fav character didn't get as much screen time as you would have liked. Hell, my fav character doesn't even get as much page time as I would like.

And why don't you stop whiney about grammar, and spelling.

Also, what about the other characters such as Nightcrawler, Colossus, Angel, and much more that didn't have any good scenes.
