and why would he keep going back for more after the first time?
Well, clearly Singer's thugs forced him to. He was pretty much made to get back on the plane at gunpoint, because airlines are totally down with that kind of thing.

To paraphrase Baby Herman in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, "The whole thing smells like yesterdays diapers!"

As been pointed out this scenario does not make any sense when scrutinized.

To be fair, we only know the scenario as presented in articles. It's hearsay and should be treated as such. The official charges are certainly more detailed and make more sense.

Pulling this discussion away from this guy's 'money-grab' lawsuit and back on topic, I'm really interested in seeing how Singer and Co. address Xavier switching back and forth between his wheelchair and being able to stand and walk.

And how Captain Picard actually manages to be there after being vaporized in Last Stand.

Did he get a face replacement after he woke up in another dude's body?

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Xavier being able to alternate between his wheelchair and standing is clearly meant to correspond with what we were shown in both Origins: Wolverine and The Last Stand, but I'm interested to see what the 'clinical' in-story explanation for it is, especially since it's unequivocally clear at this point that the 'past' events of DoFP are only going to postpone certain events from the previous films so that they occur later than they would have had DoFP's events not occurred rather than completely erasing them from existence.

I know this is sounding pedantic, but I feel it's important to distinguish criminal and civil. They're not official charges. The best term would be "claims."

We'll see if the claims turn out to be true, but I do think it's best to see how things play out.

The vegetable guy was his twin brother. They didn't explain this aspect in the film, but it seems that the twins were disproportionately granted traits upon birth.. Charles ended up with mental gifts at the expense of physical abilities and vice versa. This was contradicted with First Class, but now we have time travel. Somehow all the possible scenarios merged in some way

I had to look that up. Apparently, it was revealed in the directors commentary for the DVD.

IIRC if you look closely, you can sorta tell it's really Stewart in that bed. Plus the post credits thing, you hear his voice. Just from a logical standpoint, if it was someone else's body then the voice would be different.

Of course it's still a stupid twist in a mostly stupid film.

I always thought it was a disembodied voice, implying that Xavier was communicating with Moira telepathically.

But yeah, it's a pretty lame twist overall. Basically like what they did when they implanted Data's memories into B-4 in Nemesis.
