Here's a thought: Maybe the reason homo sapiens hates and fears homo superior is because they're always messing the spacetime continuum. Because, man, the X-Men sure do a whole lot of alternate reality time travel. How much? Take a look.

The infographics also tell you which characters die in branching timelines and who went back to mess with their younger selves.

It's worth reading for the alt-reality headcount alone—111 versions of Iceman across the Marvel multiverse—so head over and read the whole thing at The A.V. Club. 128 Jean Greys… seems like there'd be more, right?

Can someone explain to me why Xavier is back to his old, wheelchair-bound self in DoFP? Didn't they kill him in the 3rd movie? I seem to recall that there was a post-credit scene in X3 (ugh) where they hinted that he'd transferred his consciousness into a new body, but wouldn't that mean he could walk? Was the other body also coincidentally paralyzed from the waist down? Or have the just retconned the third movie out entirely (someone I would happily endorse)?
