Here are 25 reasons why the X-Men timeline makes no sense! Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant
The X-Men movie franchise is almost at an end. The recent release of Dark Phoenix means there's only one movie left to see - next year's New Mutants - and given that there'll be no familiar characters in that movie, it already feels like we've said goodbye to the saga.
The franchise has seen twelve installments in nineteen years to date - and that's included several jumps between eras and a soft reboot in the form of 2011's First Class.
Rather predictably, that's resulted in a large number of contradictions and plot holes - and this video will take you through a whole bunch of them.
The many ways X-Men has destroyed its own timeline are; that the main characters barely aged between the 1960s and the 1990s, that the jump from the 1990s to 2000 saw a MASSIVE change in the characters (Fassbender to McKellen in less than ten years, for example), that the Phoenix (of "Dark Phoenix" fame) already appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse, that there have been two completely different versions of Juggernaut, Colossus, Wade Wilson, Toad, Moira MacTaggert, Archangel, Emma Frost, Bolivar Trask and Sabretooth, that Wolverine looked older in the past than he did in the 2000s, that Beast looked surprised when a mutant cure was made in 2006 (despite making one himself decades earlier), that Professor X was inexplicably resurrected, that the manner in which Jean Grey was recruited is unclear, that Professor X and Mystique don't recognize each other in the future, that Rogue and Magneto inexplicably got their powers back, that Professor X's mobility is inconsistent, that Cerebro's creators are unclear, that Stryker returned after being mimicked by Mystique, that Wolverine's claws returned after being permanently removed, that Wolverine and Sabretooth didn't recognize each other in the future, that the renaming of the school to "Jean Grey's School for Gifted Mutants" is a retcon, and that aliens would surely be acknowledged going forward if they became known in the 1990s.
