Added DiffLines:

* ''Days of Future Past'' has a scene where Xavier flashes through Logan's memories of everything that happened in the original timeline, including ''Last Stand''. Shouldn't he be taking some of that knowledge into account in how he handles Jean and her powers?

Added DiffLines:

** In the final film the details of the scene are a little different, but it's explained that Jean's mind is resisting Xavier's attempts to get into her head, so he needs Cerebro for more power.

Added DiffLines:

** And from her view, reluctance and refusal to sacrifice are akin to cowardice. In Apocalypse she criticized Xavier's school, saying if its students aren't taught to cope handle the outside world then it's little more than a sanctuary - not a bad thing, but not good enough for her.

Added DiffLines:

*** There's also the fact that the aliens all have the exact same powers, which is not usually how mutants work.

[[folder: What good is Cerebro against the Phoenix?]]
* A scene in the trailer saw Charles using Cerebro against the Phoenix, and the whole chamber was on fire. I can't remember if it was a deleted scene, but how much strength can it give to Xavier, the world's best telepath, against Jean Gray?

** Not all the bodies were destroyed. There's probably several that were not disintegrated because Jean only disintegrates six of them (seven if you count Vuk), for example a few were knocked off the train (including one that suicide-attacked Ariki) and those should be in (relatively) good shape.


* From what I saw all the guards on the train were killed, and the bodies of the aliens were disintegrated by Jean Grey. So there's no evidence that the X-Men were fighting off an alien invasion. Why aren't all the X-Men on the run at the end of the movie as wanted fugitives?

Added DiffLines:

***The soldiers have "neutralize" rounds that appear to be syringes filled with mutant-power-canceling chemicals (hence why Beast gets back to human form when hit). Something akin to the cure from X-3, with shorter effects. We get treated to a shot of the soldiers trying that on the lead alien, who no-sells it. At this point, it's shorter to shout "they're not mutants" than "our anti-mutant rounds don't work on them".

Added DiffLines:

**She says that she doesn't remember the last time he risked anything and that event was 30 years ago.


* This was just a personal thing for me but who the heck was the female on Magneto's team? I know the guy with the braids was Warpath (at least I think). Who the heck was the chick? I don't think I heard her name once.

* Mystique says how Xavier has never sacrificed anything. Discounting DOFP (she might have not known that her assassination attempt would have doomed mutantkind), how can she say that Xavier never sacrificed anything? Did she not remember what happened in Cuba, where he was shot (admittedly by a deflected bullet) trying to prevent Magneto from killing the two naval forces?

** It can also be that Charles and Magneto have a fairly good idea of how many mutants are around and hence know there is no way a hitherto unknown group would be able to launch such an attack on the train. The X-Men mansion seems to contain mainly children apart from the main characters, and Magneto presumably left orders prevening anyone from Genosha to follow him.

Added DiffLines:

*** Possibly the fact that they revert to their alien forms when killed, and even getting them seriously wounded make them temporarily regain their alien features. Since this world is much more mutant-friendly, it could be that mutant physiology is a little better known (especially by soldiers belonging to an unit dedicated to them), so the soldiers could realise that this is not a normal reaction for a mutant, especially so many of them at once.
