Personally, I think it all depends on who's portraying who, like how Robert Downey Jr. portrayed Iron Man and made him popular again. The same could be said for Rocket Raccoon, Black Panther and Doctor Strange.

@adamtrmm: I agree with this! That's why I loved Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing so much because while the whole run is serious for the most part, it did have some lighthearted moments that I enjoyed such as the cute bantering between all of the X-Men characters involved and some of the jokes they gave out.
I'm not sure about their facial expressions looking so human now (even though I kind of knew this was going to happen anyway), but what I'm more concerned about is if they could get their personalities right (Mikey is playful and the comic relief and Raphael is the tough and hot headed member of the team). It would be interesting to see how this movie plays out though. Great article k4tzm4n!
Green Lantern (either Hal Jordan or John Stewart)
Flash (possibly Barry Allen)
I voted for more character driven and complex storytelling because with character driven stories, it allows me to really care about the characters that are involved in that story and how they feel about the situations they are thrown into. Also, if they are done right, we get to see how the characters interact with each other and it makes them feel more genuine to the readers. As for having more complex stories, it helps provide a certain surprise element to the story and also helps keep the stories more interesting by changing the status quo in a straight forward way.
@outside_85: I agree with this. I think even if Jean Grey wasn't alive, they would have found some way to break up the team regardless of the situation.
@hawk2916: I agree that Jean Grey would have ended the Schism if she came back (that's if the writers would allow that though).
If this is true, then I wonder what will become of the Apocalypse movie that is about to come out? But isn't it strange that they announced this just as the movie is a month away from being released?
While I loved the action sequence in this clip, I just hope that each character gets some good development in this film.
I think the X-Men would have split anyway, whether Jean was alive or not. The X-Men did pretty much split in the 80s with Scott and Storm having different teams, even though Jean Grey was still alive at that point.
