X-Men 3

Question: I have three questions regarding the end scene. 1. How come Jean can't crush Wolverine's body? I ask this because we can see her easily kill all people who walk too close to her. 2. Why didn't Wolverine inject Jean with the cure instead of killing her? 3. What would happen if Jean got injected with the cure?

Chosen answer: 1) Apparently the combination of Logan's unbreakable skeleton and healing factor was enough to keep Jean from shredding him - it's possible to see his body getting damaged and repairing itself in a few shots. 2) Because, while he's capable of getting close to her mostly intact, the same isn't really true of anything he might be wearing or holding, so any cure syringe he carried with him would be destroyed. 3) Who knows? Given her extreme power level, the cure might or might not have worked, and, considering the final shot of the movie, which suggests that the cure isn't permanent anyway, her powers would likely return before long.

Question: I have a few questions. Firstly the latest X-men film showed that although looking only 30ish, Mystique is as old as Professor X. That can only be cause of her mutation. So why after she was cured didn't she age into an older woman? Secondly, if Wolverine had been cured (assuming it would even have worked, given his healing ability), would it have killed him? Given his age and all the adamantium inside him, i couldn't imagine it, but am I wrong?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Both Wolverine and Mystique's mutations cause them to age slowly; effectively the normal human body deterioration is slowed for them, giving them a younger physical age than their actual chronological age. If that mutation was removed, then the factor that slowed their ageing would no longer function, but they wouldn't abruptly "catch up" with their actual age, they would simply possess a body at their current physical age which would age as a normal human after that point. As for the adamantium lacing Logan's bones, were his healing factor removed, he might well swiftly suffer extreme levels of toxic shock, which would likely prove fatal.

Question: Why didn't they just shoot Mystique with the cure, rather then hold her in a cell like they did? Knowing how dangerous she is, and how she can shape-shift into anyone, why keep her incarcerated? Surely they knew that Magneto would try to rescue her, and how unstoppable he could be. It would have been in their best interest to just "cure" her.

Chosen answer: Because they're not allowed to. You can't just beat a potentially violent prisoner unconscious. This is along the same lines. The legality of usage of "the cure" has not been fully clarified. So all personnel were given the order not to use it unless absolutely necessary.

Phixius

Question: Why at the end is Rogue allowed back to the mansion to rejoin the X-men if she is no longer a mutant?

Chosen answer: Because the people living there are her friends. It is never stated that she comes back for good, but she wanted to see them and explain what she had done, not to mention physically touching Bobby. Also, Rogue might not have that many places to go, since the school has become her home. The X-Men would be willing to give a friend and former comrade a place to stay while she rearranged her life.

Twotall

Question: What made Pyro want to immediately kill his friend Iceman? I know that he is now a full member of the brotherhood and all, but doesn't he still care for his friends like Rogue and all?

Chosen answer: Pyro didn't consider them friends. They are his enemies in a war.

MasterOfAll

Question: I have three questions about the lake scene. One: When Cyclops fires his lasers, he falls to the ground afterwards. Is that draining his life or something? Two: When Cyclops kisses Jean, how come his face was wavy? Three: Does anyone know why Jean is knocked out when Wolverine and Storm found her? Or why mist is everywhere and everything is floating?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: 1 - Cyclops fell to the ground because he was in psychological pain from being in the place where he lost the woman he loved. 2 - His face was wavy because it was being disrupted by her telekinesis, the same way he eventually died. 3 - She was knocked out because her power overwhelmed her. The strange things going on are because she can no longer control her powers.

Question: What exactly happened to Cyclops?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: De-atomized. The same thing that was happening to Wolverine at the climax, except Cyclops couldn't heal himself as it was happening.

Phixius

Question: Instead of Magneto using the bridge to get his army to the island, why doesn't Jean/Phoenix simply fly them across with her advanced telekinesis?

LazyBoy09

Chosen answer: There are an infinite number of different ways Magneto and the army could have gotten onto the island. Yes, Jean using her telekinetic powers is one of them. However Magneto, throughout the 3 movies, is shown that he likes to make a statement to invoke fear in everyone. He wanted to start a fight just like in the other movies. Moving an entire bridge (unnecessarily) makes a huge statement.

XIII

Question: What is this website talking about where it says "Please note: For this movie, Juggernaut is a mutant like everyone else - it's irrelevant how he got his powers in the comics. And no-one cares that there's an insect on Wolverine's shoulder."

Chosen answer: This is something that's often done when submissions are frequently received about something that's not actually considered a mistake. So, to take the examples cited here, there were a number of submissions claiming that it was a mistake that Juggernaut was a mutant because, in the comics, he isn't. Site policy states that differences between a movie and whatever source material it uses are not considered to be errors, so Juggernaut being a mutant in the movie is not error-worthy. The note was put there in an effort to stop anyone else submitting it. The second one refers to a shot where a fly can be seen on Wolverine's shoulder, which was also the subject of a number of submissions. Flies land on people, it happens in real life, so it can hardly be considered a mistake if it happens in a movie. As such, a note was added to try to prevent it being resubmitted.

Question: At the very end of the movie, before the credits, with Magneto playing chess, did he manage to move or knock over the chess piece?It cut to black too quickly for me to see. Were they trying to show that the cure was not permanent?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: The piece did move, very very slightly. I'd argue that the cure is generally permanent, but perhaps with someone of Magneto's power the X gene can't be permanently suppressed, and will slowly regenerate itself through his body, gradually restoring him to full strength.

Jon Sandys

Question: I know this isn't very important to the movie but when Magneto says Charles always wanted to build bridges was he making fun of Charles or making a reference to how he's moving the bridge.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: A little bit of both. Although he wasn't really making fun of Charles, but pointing out that Charles only talked about doing something (building bridges in a figurative way) while Magneto was actually doing something to accomplish his goals, by literally moving the bridge.

Bishop73

Question: At the end of the movie, we see that the cure eventually wears off, but doesn't this mean that Rogue and Mystique's powers will return, and that she would join Magneto again, and Rogue stays as an X-Men?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: This is just a little tease thrown in at the end of the movie. Magneto's still got some power left. Will he get his full power back? They don't say. Will other individuals also get theirs back? We don't know. If another film in the series is made that follows this one, some of these questions may be answered - without that, speculation about what characters might do based on a tease shot is, for the most part, pointless. Their powers might return. Mystique might rejoin Magneto, although she might well not - she was pretty angry at him for abandoning her. Rogue might stick with the X-Men. That's it. A whole load of "might".

Tailkinker

Question: When and where was Mystique captured by the army?

Chosen answer: Mystique was captured trying to break into the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), presumably the HQ in Maryland, disguised as Secretary Trask - presumably recently.

Question: I have a couple of questions regarding Jean Grey: 1) What exactly caused her to turn against the X-Men and join Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants? 2) Why did she kill Scott and Professor Xavier?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: It's not exactly Jean. It is her alternate personality known as the Phoenix that has full control. The Phoenix, unlike Jean, wishes to use her powers for her own needs. She kills Scott because she cannot control her powers, and kills Xavier because he is able to lock her back in Jean's mind.

Question: Where was Pyro when Magneto went to Jean's house and the professor was killed?

Chosen answer: We aren't told for certain, but given that he is Magneto's right-hand man, he may have been instructed to remain at their base camp in order to assume command of Magneto's army should Magneto's mission to recruit Jean have gone awry.

Question: What did the girl with super speed mean by where is Magneto's "mark" if he is so proud of being a mutant?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She was part of a group of mutants that called themselves "The Omegas" and accordingly they got tattoos of the omega symbol as a mark of pride.

Serious B

Question: How in the world is Charles still alive after being disintegrated? I know he's powerful, but there's no way he can come back from that.

Christian Hannah

Chosen answer: As revealed in the post-credits scene, he transferred his consciousness to another body, one without brain function, just before his own was destroyed. He foreshadows this during a lecture early in the film, when he talks about the mind living on even when the body dies. So his mind, his "self", survived, even if his physical form did not. It is widely assumed among X-Men fans that Charles transferred his mind into his comatose twin brother, thereby explaining how Charles later looked and sounded exactly like he did before Jean disintegrated him.

Question: Why does Storm believe that Jean (who in the comics is her best friend) is gone and will never come back and try to forget her?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Why wouldn't Storm believe Jean is gone? She saw her (Jean) crushed by a giant wave and consumed by a giant lake. She has no reason to think that Jean will "come back, " and she tries to move on after her best friend's death, as you or anyone else would.

Question: Near the start of the movie, we see a young Angel cutting off his wings when his father walks in on him and says "Oh God, not you too." I was just wondering, does his father has something against mutants?

oncerella

Chosen answer: He was ashamed that his son was a mutant, especially given his status in the business community. Warren Worthington Jr. (Angel's father) was the one who, through his company, created the mutant cure 10 years later. In the comics, he also supported the mutant registration act.

Bishop73

Question: In the scene when The Beast first meets the mutant boy who is the "cure" what video game is the boy playing?

autumwitch

Chosen answer: It's not any particular game, just one the crew made up.

Eric Lensherr: Charles Xavier did more for mutants than you will ever know. My single greatest regret is that he had to die for our dream to live.

Mistakes

When Magneto lands the Golden Gate Bridge on the island, as it hits land it is still very light. When the Brotherhood start to walk toward the island, it cuts to a wide shot of them still walking on the bridge, and it's suddenly dark.

Trivia

The combat simulation the X-Men are running on their first appearance in the film features the dread Sentinel robots. Originally, these were meant to appear in the second movie already, but the idea was scrapped. The simulation also bears a close reference to the parallel comic storyline Days of Future Past, where the Sentinels rebelled against humanity, killed most of Earth's superheroes and erected a totalitarian regime in the US.
