** Domino ''isn't'' an albino in the comics. At least not in the conventional sense. Her bleach-white skin comes from the X-Gene, not a lack of pigmentation as is the case with albinism (most importantly is her ''hair''. A true albino human would not have black hair like Dom's).

Added DiffLines:


[[folder:Black Domino bringing diversity]]
* So it was stated that they choose to make Domino an African-American in order to bring more diversity. The problem with that logic is that she was already a minority in the comics -- she was an albino. While black people are a minority too, albinos are more underrepresented, not to mention they [[EvilAlbino tend to be depicted as villains]] in fiction; Domino was among the rare heroic examples. So how, exactly, does changing Domino from an albino to a non-albino African-American make the movie ''more'' diverse, rather than ''less''?

Added DiffLines:

* It's also important to note that the Juggernaut, at least in the comics, was physically abused by his father. It's not hard to imagine him feeling sympathy for another abused kid.


** It's also possible that, if the odds of success get too low for a task, her luck will focus more on survival than success, ie having her thrown into convenient foliage and knocked out until the threat has passed. [[/folder]]

** Her luck is useful for good luck for ''her'' - she just turned up for the X-Force on an impulse. Turned out that ''she'' got lucky with that orphanage. You can't have somebody like that just go off on their own on assigned missions.

Added DiffLines:

** I think this is the good old [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Evil Has Standards]] trope in action. Russell probably told Juggernaut about the abuse he suffered at the hands of the Headmaster, and even a thug like him couldn't help but feel repulsed and angry about the situation.

Added DiffLines:

** Everybody in the mansion is aware that Wade is Colossus' half-friend, half-pet morality project.


* Assume Cable is about the same age as Josh Brolin (or a bit younger but worn by fighting, grief and time travel. Or older but kept fresh by judicious application of lip balm). He hunted mutants in a dark future and travelled back in time from a point where Russell was an adult and Cable had a family. So, when was Cable born? Would he have been witness to any X-Men shenanigans first hand? Most importantly, 'cis Cable a millennial?''

** Considering the helmet took hits from ''Colossus'' without a scratch, you'd probably have to kill Juggernaut to take off without his consent.

* If Future Russell was in his 40s when he killed Cable's family, does that mean Cable already exist in the present timeline (possibly as a toddler)?

** Cable kind of really want to kill Russell, given he has been chasing him in the future for a while and he killed his family.

** I don't know if this is really a headscratcher. He has options and the X-men seem to make sense. Colossus is going back to the school. It makes sense for Russell to walk with the people he actually knows.

* I thought it was a plot point that Cable only have enough time turner juice to come to the past and return to the future once each? How did Wade perform his time hops and what does it have to do with Negasonic and Yukiko fixing the device?

* Anyway, we know Deadpool is essentially living cancer at this point, and he and Vanessa were trying to have kids. But wouldn't his living cancer thing include his testicles? Now I'm not implying that it would give Vanessa cancer (Biology doesn't work like that), but wouldn't that essentially render Wade sterile? Or is there some reason to assume he can still iompregnate her?

** More Doylistically, it was probably easier to wrangle the younger actors for a 5-second cameo than the older cast. The joke still lands either way, and that's what matters.

[[folder:What year is it actually suppose to be?]]
* Okay, this is a little bit of confusion. We assume that due to the presence of technology (smartphones, laptops) and vehicles (such as there are two Telsa Model 3s seen in the convoy scene that end up crashing) hints that it's at least within recent years. However, when it comes to the X-Mansion scene where Wade complains about how it's only Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Yukio being there, we see a shot where we have the X-Men in the background as the doors are being closed. However, the X-Men we see is from the recent films, where they're all still young circa the late 1980s/early 1990s, going from the last film's setting and Quicksilver's Nirvana T-shirt. I get that their appearance is a gag and that for the comics in the 1990s, the X-Men and several government agencies had some advanced tech (for example, the government having the Sentinals), but there's no way for Telsa Motors to have come into existence decades before, nor Apple to release a current iPhone decades before they came up with it. So, the question is, what year is the film suppose to be taking place where the X-Men are still circa late 1980s/early 1990s and modern tech is present?

Added DiffLines:

** Peter is a normal human, who knew and admits that he was in over his head. The others were all mutants (or aliens) who wanted to go on a mission; helping them would have meant continuing the mission with them, and Deadpool already knows that the timeline works out as is, so messing with it might just screw everything up again.
