I have been geeking out.

Ever since I have seen X-Men Origins I have been in full-blown geek mode. I ended up going out and buying the first three X-Men movies and I have watched them a several times. I am a major X-Men geek and I can easily spot the inconsistencies between the original comics and the movie but I am not a big enough geek to let it ruin the whole movie. Like in the first movie when Professor X is talking about his school and he says that Jean Gray, Cyclops, and Storm were among his first students, which is not true. The first X-Men were Cyclops, Marvel Girl (Jean Grays original name), Beast, Angel, and Iceman (it is later revealed that Sage was also one of the original X-Men but only Professor X and her knew that). Storm does not come in to the picture until after the comic was cancelled. Originally X-Men did not do so well so it was canned. Then it catch on and Marvel brought it back and introduced new mutants Storm being one of them. But there are two things that bug me and both of them involve Rogue. The first one being her powers in the movie. If you have seen the movie then you know that her only power at the time is to absorb other people’s memoires/powers. But in the comic when she only has those powers she is a member of Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. It is after a fight with Ms. Marvel when Rogue held on to her for to long and permanently absorbed part of Ms. Marvel psyche ad powers. This caused Rogue to stuggled with Ms. Marvel for control over her self which in turn pushed her to go to Professor X for help and later join the X-Men. So if Rogue is a member of the X-Men then she should have the ability to fly, super strength, and industutability. The other thing that bugged me was in the last movie when Rogue takes the cure. While the fact that Rogue cannot have skin to skin contact with anyone for an extended period of time with out risking killing them she would never have taken the cure because she knew that crap part of her power aside she could help a lot of people with it. But in the movie she was afraid that Iceman would leave her for Shadowcat. But we all know that Shadowcat onlu had eyes for Colossus. But then again if the movie version of Colossus is the same one from the Ulitmate X-Men universe then he is a big Mo. Which I always found weird. When they have done alternate universe versions of the X-Men they tweak stories a little but they really do hot change the relationships that much. That why it was such a shock to find out that Colossus was gay. I mean it was pretty cool since he ended up in a relationship with Northstar and he is my second favorite X-Man. So maybe Rogue should have been worried after all.

I so need to get some X-men Icons.

Hi fellow geek LOL I mean I'm not as X men savvy as you yer marvelousness, but I'm trying I really am ( that's kinda hard because there are no X men comics on sale in Croatia, yeah, go figure *sighs*)
I have a question, ummm if a person is telepathic I guess they can read anybody's mind anytime anywhere, but can a person fight that without being some kind of telepath themselves? I need the info for my fic, yeah the Nuke X saga.
One more. What's with the hounds (mutants who track down other mutants) I mean how does that actually work?

Yes people can fight against telepathy a couple different way. In the comics there are characters like Jubilee that were naturally immune to telepathy so people could not read her mind. There are also characters like Magento and Juggernaut who both wear helmets that can block telepathy from being able to affect them. Also take a character like Storm who powers are based a lot on her own will power which allows her to put up a very strong defense if some one tires to use it one here.

There are two different groups of mutants that hunt down other mutants and they both do if for different reason. The first one is Weapon X. They are a group of mutants that are being controlled by humans that want to kill all mutants. Most of the mutants they got under fa;se pretenses. A good bit of them were either dying or having trouble controlling their powers and Weapon X offered to help. But when the heal/fix them also put them under mind control and make them do their biding.

The other one is the The Marauders ran by Mr. Sinister. With these mutants Mister Sinister has them kill any mutants who he thinks are genetically inferior. The best example of this was the massacre he ordered on the Morlocks who lived in the sewers of New York.

You are very much welcomed and to be honest it was my pleasure. I can talk about X-Men for hours on end. I am more than willing to help out if you have any more questions.

I tell you, us geeks will rule the world! I'm with you 100% about Rogue, she is such a powerful character in the comics but in the movies she comes out like this scared little girl, when she is supposed to be a badass!!!

And yeah, Colossus relationships are difficult to understand :P

They do have an alternate version in the DVD extras where she does not take the cure and I like that scene better. But then again they do hint at the end of the movie that the cure might not be permanent with the scene with Magneto.

He always got the shit end of the relationships. First Shadowcat was to young. Then he died. And now she is dead. Poor guy. No wonder he ended up switching teams.
