In each of the three storylines, he is dedicated to his mission to the neglect of all other things. The relationships between the three storylines are up for debate as there seem to be [[RecursiveReality indirect interactions]] between the three versions of Jackman's character that suggest that they might be the same person or that one or two of the characters [[FictionIdentityPostulate might be imaginary to the third]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalModesty: In Aronofsky's graphic novel version, Tom the Astronaut and Izzy are both naked in all of their scenes together in the spaceship (which is understandable, considering Tom spends all of his time alone, and Izzy is either a spirit or a hallucination in those scenes). In the movie, Tom the Astronaut stays clothed, and Izzy only appears as echoes of Present!Izzy and Queen Isabella during the future scenes.

* BookEnds: Izzy tries to convince Tommy to spend time with her, time he insists he needs for his cancer research (which he performs for her sake but, ironically, draws him away from her.) [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, [[MyGreatestSecondChance the timeline gives Tommy another chance at this scene]], but this time [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he accepts the invitation and joins her]]]].
