The first time I ever did a back-flip was one of the greatest moments. It was kind of incredible. I felt superhuman for a second. I tried to carry on to achieve that again, but it takes a lot of work to feel superhuman

Right now we have an X-Men franchise that has sidelined Kitty Pryde, completely mishandled Storm, Emma Frost and Rogue, robbed Jean Grey of any agency, and has yet to properly introduce Psylocke, Jubilee and Polaris.

The latest film does feature a number of non-white characters, but every single one of them (Storm, Blink, Sunspot, Warpath, Bishop) is relegated to outside guard duty while all of the white characters (Xavier, Magneto, Kitty, Wolverine) handle the important, emotion-heavy, world-saving work.

There’s even been a surprisingly anti-international slant towards one of the most international teams in comics as Colossus, Banshee, Quicksilver and Storm all lost their cultural identities in the transition from page to screen.

Brett White from CBR on in order for the X-Men to survive, they need to diversify.

First, Bryan Singer has to go. This may come as a surprise considering that I just heaped a ton of praise on the director’s latest film, but I’ve done so while also purposely avoiding mentioning his name. Based on the sexual abuse allegations currently piling up around him, I just feel icky — an understatement — giving the guy any praise.”

I’d also like to point out that Psylocke was introduced. She was one of the henchmen mutants in X-3. Remember the porcupine dude and the speedster woman? Yeah she was the third one. Not only was she a nonspeaking bad guy but she was also unceremoniously killed off.

HE’S SO “MISUNDERSTOOD”

"I once had to say this on a show many years ago, and I truly believe it: Loneliness is a choice. I like to be alone; I’m more comfortable alone. But I do recognise that I take it too far sometimes and so I try to force myself to keep up with being sociable. I just am a bit of a lone ranger; I always have been. But I don’t believe that necessarily has to translate to being lonely. You can be lonely in a crowd of a thousand people. I can be in a hotel room on my own, and not feel lonely. It all comes down to how comfortable you are with who you are in the silence."
