@phoenixofthetides: @devilsgrin81: I hear you Devil, But I think they intended Warpath to fill in the void Wolverine left from the original storyline since he was in the future. Tough guy, brunette, sharp weapons, died by disintegration. Get it. Warpath is hands down the sexiest hero, IMO. He beats Thor, Cyclops, & Captain America when it comes to male sex appeal. Yes.. I have a type.
Back on topic. It would've made more sense to have Jubilee in there, since she was in the original 3 films. BUT--
1) Too many Asians in one scene would have made the producers lose their minds.
2) She really wouldn't have served the plot much...
3) The movie was crowded as a B!tc# as is. Maybe it was for the best that she wasn't in it.
BUT-- If she was in it, I would have liked to see her in the end with all the others at the Xavier institute. I'm surprised Blink, Warpath, and Sunspot didn't make it in the end. :( But maybe that was left for the original 3 films team.
I'm assuming that Blink, Warpath and Sunspot survived due to the timeline adjustment, but are simply too young in the current era to be on the team. They seemed quite young in the DoFP future, and that appears to take place 20-30 years in the future. In the current timeline, they might only be children or not even born, yet.
I don't think any of the Cannon Fodder X-Men served the plot much; you could have inserted any other random character and made up some reason for them to be there. Swap in Magik for Blink, Firestar for Sunspot, Frenzy for Warpath, Strong Guy for Colossus, and the scenes would have played out pretty much identically to how they did in the movie.
