    Some things just don't translate well visually to live action.
    No but i hate it when producers and directors don't adhere to the original look.

    And certainly they don't stay true to the characters.

    Take Rouge (Played by Anna Paquin) for example, she began her X-Men life in 1979 and was Ms Marvel and was adopted by Mystique and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, not what the Movie portrayed.

      I don't think they wanted to put that much time into one character. They wanted to use some of the more popular X-Men without going all the way back to the early '60s. That would have been Cyclops, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Iceman, and Beast. No Wolverine, no Rogue.

        Wolverine real name isn't Logan but is James Howlett, but he goes by the name Logan.

        Jean Grey-Summers officially is Phoenix, but also was called Marvel Girl and Dark Phoenix.

        Iceman (Robert Drake) intorduction into the X-Men universe was through his lock-up for turning a local bully into a block of ice, the townsfolk were out to get him, he was thrown into Gaol for his protection, Scott (Slim) Summers blew open the wall to rescue Iceman but they fought a battle until Professor X stepped in and rescued Iceman. Bobby, his parents and Professor X had a talk and it was agreed that he should go and study scholl for gifted mutants.

          Jean Grey went by Marvel Girl in the first X-Men comics (way back in the early '60s).

          When did he get that name? I looked it up in the Marvel Universe Handbook (geez, what a geek I am!) and it lists his name as Logan. I read comics for many years (geez, what a geek I am!) and never encountered that name. I quit comics for good in the late 1990s, so I suspect that the name is comparatively recent.

                There are other characters I would like to see featured in this film other than Wolverine. I hope they keep that tradition up.

                  Early 90's but I wondered the same thing.

                    It's a Hugh Jackman movie, You just know a Woman is going to play a major part at some point I'd like to see Juggernaut come into the story...

                      Marvel Universe Wiki

                      Wolvie was born James Howlett & has been known by a great many names - Logan foremost among them - since his 1st Cameo appearance in Hulk #180's (1974 ) teaser panel.

                      I could be wrong, but IIRC, Wolverine was 1st introduced to Xavier as Logan...

                        The Wolverine is finally going to debut in 2013...I can't wait. It looks really good, from the trailers I've seen. Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior.

                            Is Marvel doing this, or another studio?
