Added DiffLines:

** Logan probably lied to Charles regarding the "no new mutants since 25 years ago" to keep the Westchester incident repressed from his mind. Just an offhand mention of the past X-Men would be enough to risk things like a seizure. Yes, the incident was mentioned on Logan's car radio at one point, but Charles never picked up on it. And of course, the X-Men would surely know of the [=GMO=]s within the 6 year gap, though ''however'' many of them survived Westchester to know what was going on is up to theorizing.


Added DiffLines:

** Caliban was told to dump him in a ditch and had reinforcements on his ass. If Logan just went up and killed Pierce, he'd be even more on the run because he was actually a pretty big cog in the machine, not just some PsychoForHire. Logan would not want to bother with more Reavers after him especially since he was already irritated with them before, and that they pose a ''serious'' risk to Charles' life.



to:

** They never knew the other kids were at Eden to begin with, because their eyes were dead set on Laura. Only ''once'' she made it with Logan did they finally track them down.


** Because BulletsDoNotWorkThatWay. An adamantium bullet isn't going to be any more effective than a regular bullet just because it's made of adamantium. In fact, for some applications it will be ''less'':

Added DiffLines:

** It could also be that none of the mercs involved had enough lack of morals to kill unarmed children.


** I don't know, is putting [=GMOs=] in food and drinks that would make everybody white and straight a good thing? Future kids will no longer be bullied, harassed, and killed by bigots for race or orientation. You're jumping on some ''very'' UnfortunateImplications there when you remember the Mutant Metaphor.

** ''You're jumping on some ''very'' UnfortunateImplications there when you remember the Mutant Metaphor.'' And here we risk setting off the arguments regarding the Mutant Registration Act once more. Mutants have been a stand-in for effectively every oppressed group in history at some point in the comics; and yet as advocates both in and out of universe regularly point out, homosexuals and other minorities cannot kill with a thought AKA Xavier, they cannot walk through any physical barrier AKA Shadowcat, they cannot OneManArmy the President's entire security detail AKA Nightcrawler, they cannot commit literal identity fraud AKA Mystique etc. We are talking about a race of people with powers that rival a lesser pantheon of gods, and it has to be said regarding the idea that this is some form of genocide, it was always going to come down to them or us eventually because humans are not used to sharing and potentially giving up their position at the top of the food chain. We're just lucky that this time it didn't end with a Sentinel apocalypse.

** The first time they meet (outside the hospital) Logan is still trying to play dumb and hoping he goes away. The second time they meet (in Mexico, in the scrapyard) Logan's more focused on getting away; note that he does advance towards Pierce but ends up with every gun trained on him. The third time they meet, it's outside the Muson farmhouse and Logan is, once again, more worried about running away than killing one specific soldier. Logan simply spends most of this movie running away rather than trying to kill a single person (who, remember, wasn't that important in the overall Transigen hierarchy).

** Why should they worry about relatives? It's not against the law to write people's stories, particularly when they're public stories. I imagine evil mutants have simpler ways to get some cash (Juggernaut and other mutants are portrayed robbing banks several times).

** Why should would they worry about get sued by relatives? It's not against the law to write people's stories, particularly when they're public stories. I imagine evil mutants have simpler ways to get some cash (Juggernaut and other mutants are portrayed robbing banks several times).

Added DiffLines:

** As said above there are people there waiting to help (some of which are likely mutants themselves), so marching into the sanctuary would be suicide. That's why it was so important for them to get the kids before they could reach it.

[[folder: Laura and Adamantium]]
* If Laura's bones and/or claws are covered in Adamantium like Logan's wouldn't that become a problem as she ages and her bones grow? Wouldn't the adamantium covering either prevent bone growth, keeping her at a child's stature, or be forced apart, weakening the protection? In either case her combat effectiveness would be reduced in the longer term.
** WordOfGod confirms that s in the comics only Laura's claws are bonded.


*** If Logan really does take place in the same timeline as the good future in ''Days of Future Past'', than it opens up a number of plot holes / continuity issues. Deleted scenes (assuming they are canon) make reference to events in the original timeline - events that would have never taken place in the new timeline. Furthermore, given the number of years it's been since the last mutant was born, ALL of the students featured at the end of ''Days of Future Past'' would have to be human. And Storm, Beast, Xavier, and the rest of the X-Men all seem [[AngstWhatAngst surprisingly happy]] at the end of ''Days of Future Past'' for people who surely have to know their species will likely go extinct. (Granted, we only saw them for one scene but still...) YMMV but it's not surprising why many feel it works better for this movie and the franchise as a whole if ''Logan'' takes place in an alternate timeline.
