X-Men 2

Question: Why was there adamantium in Nightcrawler's flashback? We saw a needle too, implying he was being injected. Does this fit with any comic/movie interpretation?

Piemanmoo

Chosen answer: The needle in the flashback relates to the drug that Stryker placed on the back of his neck so that he could control him. The adamantium in the flashback is most likely because the flashback relates to events at Alkali Lake.

Question: When Bobby's brother calls the police, he has some news thing on the computer. What was on it?

Piemanmoo

Question: Does anyone out there speak German? What does Nightcrawler say in the cathedral when he's 'porting around the rafters?

Chosen answer: Ich bin der Bote des Teufels. Die Ausgeburt des Boesen. Ich bin ein damon. I am the messenger of the devil. The spawn of evil. I am a demon.

Question: During the Mansion attack scene, Stryker and his men are presumably defenseless against Wolverine with their guns because of his immune regenerating abilities. So why not just stay at the Mansion and kill them all off, securing the Mansion, while the other students escape with Colossus. Was it because of the remaining students who refused to leave?

Answer: Firstly, Wolverine is not invulnerable. A later scene shows him being knocked out cold when he is shot in the head. Secondly, the best plan was to escape. The mansion was being overwhelmed and even with his abilities Wolverine would have a hard time fighting that many soldiers without casualties on his side.

Question: This may seem morbid, but does anyone know how Kurt put those scars on himself?

Answer: Kurt explained to Storm that he put the scars on himself every time he committed a sin which is quite capable with long sharp nails.

Answer: Since he has sharp nails he could have easily done it to himself. I would think that he would have used his tail to do the ones that are located on his back and so forth. But to me his scars resemble that of a burn scar as if untreated it will "bubble" slightly if the burn is bad enough. Say for instance a cow being branded.

Question: In one of the last scenes, when the students go into the room with Professor X, there was a moment when he stopped and looked back, then smiled. Why did he do this? (02:04:25)

Answer: It's implied that he sensed Jean was still alive, though the sequel doesn't really follow this up in the same manner, as Jean is discovered after awakening and killing Cyclops. One would think that Charles would immediately send for Jean if he thought she survived.

Question: With Kurt's ability to teleport, how was Stryker able to capture and brainwash him into assassinating the president?

Answer: According to X2: X-Men United: The Movie Prequel: Nightcrawler (an official comic book prequel series to the movie), Stryker had his son Jason use his mutant powers to deceive Nightcrawler with an illusion. Nightcrawler thought he was escaping to freedom with the woman he loved but instead was running straight to Stryker's men who immediately placed an inhibitor collar on him and locked him in a cell.

Answer: Logan and Jean have a history- Logan specifically loves Jean and expressed his affections towards her in the past, and Jean feels some love towards him but can't act on it because of her relationship with Scott. As Rogue and Logan are also very close, it seems to be subtly implied that she might be a hint jealous of Logan's affections to Jean. Also, Rogue might feel a tab-bit awkward by their conversation given the circumstances.

Answer: Jean and Logan's romantic affection for one another is a poorly kept secret between the two and is awkward to witness for their friends.

X-Men 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the end, when the President is visited by the X-Men, he receives a blue binder, which is laid in front of him on the table. When they have left, you see a shot including the President's desk, and you can see that the only thing he has on the table are some sheets of paper, stapled in the upper left corner, opened up. Then the shot changes to a close-up of the President, and then back again, and you see the blue binder in front of him, closed, and the papers have disappeared. (02:01:40)
