    ^ His mutant power is the ability to control the super-sweat that emanates from his upper lip

    I would think his mutant power is lying...oh wait that's probably what the reference to the upper lip was for.

    I'm not against Wolverine having a cameo, again, in First Class 2. If nothing else it continues to show a narrative, albeit loosely, of how things all tie together between the prequel(trilogy?), the original trilogy and the Wolverine films. Nothing wrong, imo, using Wolverine as the focus at times and periphery character as other mutant events are happening around him.

    Meh. Shoehorning him in to every single film shrinks the universe. of the X-Men films. He's not needed.

    I'd rather not see the characters run into Wolverine again until he joins the team. That said, I wouldn't be against a cameo if they could find a way to do it without any of the team members, and have it make sense.

    At this point, they should just try to squeeze him into every single Marvel that ever gets made.

    I won't lie, it would have been kinda neat to see Captain America working with Howlett/Logan during World War II. Darn pesky studio contracts and such! :p

    Having Logan appear in First Class 2 would in my opinion undermine the cleverness of his cameo in the first movie. Again there is no reason to do this since "The Wolverine" will already be out supposedly before this comes out.

    There's no reason to do it because Logan's story, as it stands now, involves no further interaction with the X-Men other than what we've already seen.

    I am in the minority for not liking Wolverine's cameo in the first movie. I'd much rather have a nod to someone else or see a young new mutant. We already met the elder Stryker at the CIA. It might be nice to have him tied into some evil government conspiracy.

    I still can't think of a good sequel title. I'd rather simply have it go hehe rogue and just be called The Brotherhood of Mutants.

    Interestingly, who would you not want to return?! I say Emma Frost and Angel most definately. I wouldn't mind having Havok and Banshee be there, so long as there was a new mutant or if they all had some development. The problem with the first one was too many tossed in mutants.

    Emma Frost would have been better had she been portrayed by Alice Eve. Too bad she dropped out of talks. January Jones was decent but no where near the Emma I was expecting to see. As I said Singer said a few months ago that there will most likely be one more mutant character added. Obviously we do not know who that is yet. "The Brotherhood of Mutants" isn't a bad title. I liked Havok and wouldn't mind if Alex stuck around for one more film. Banshee didn't really think much of it either way. Angel is a non entity to me but kind of cool to see.

    I didn't mind January Jones, but I wouldn't really care if she didn't come back. Same goes for Angel. I think the only ones that I would miss if they didn't come back are the big characters who are pretty much guaranteed to come back.
    If they do decide to go into the '70s, they could do Dazzler. I've never actually encountered the character in any of the stuff I've seen and read, but I think the idea of a '70s rock star mutant could be alot of fun, if done well.

    First Class had one of the worst spoon-fed, forced endings a film could ever have.
