You're standing on my neck
Most of the time, I don't mind changes if they are at least as good or better than the source material. Some examples of that are Pyro and Stryker. Both are really lame characters in the cartoon/comics so those changes were for the better.
But as much as making Wolverine the time traveler annoys me from a character perspective (b/c I think they are going to try to make him a leader again like in X3, rather than the reluctant soldier) it annoys me more simply because we've had more than enough focus on Wolverine at this point. There are a lot of other X-men that need some love on the big screen and this storyline they are adapting provides the opportunity to do that in two different timelines. And yet, it looks like they want to still keep the focus on Wolverine in both... :bobdole:
