    I think the Wolverine headshot scene pissed me off more because of how he loses his memories in Origins from one but not here?

    It official.nostalgia critic is as stupid as f...k.Not only he doesn't understand source material, he is unable to reason."I know what I am doing this is the only way" is not only about the x plain ye imbecile clown. It is about the phoenix forces.she broke the fucking dam by trying to stop cyclops,and it was the reason she stopped focusing on the rocket. She knew and she would leave anyway. It is clear what hides behind nostalgia critic's hasty annoying voice.Inability to understand what is going on in the film itself.

    I don't think you are particularly funny or intelligent.Your shitty lousy voice doesn't make this movie any less awesome than it is. It only makes your lines generally more annoying.hahah Lowbrow critic.

    The reason so many kids shows have so many unlikeable leaders is because a lot of people in general hate people who constantly tell them what to do. The people who create these shows are artists that, no surprise, typically aren't big fans of authority figures who tell people what to do. This sometimes leaks into their writing of said authority figure characters. So characters that rebel against authority AKA Wolverine get more favorable writing.

    1) Iceman Probably Can't Stop The Huge Flood, He's Still An Teen With Underdeveloped Powers~ ✔2) Professor Xavier Is Only Telepathic Not, Not Telekinetic~ ✔3) Storm I Read The Comments, BUT BITCH, You DAMN WELL Bet Storm CAN FREEZE A GOOD PORTION IF NOT ALL THAT FUCKING DAM FLOODING OR JUST MELT THE ICE OR SOMETHING AROUND THE PLANE OR LIFT THE PLANE JET UP WITH HER WIND CONTROL POWERS She's A Grown Ass Beautiful Woman Powerful Fucking Goddess Mutant, With Full Control Over Weather Manipulation And Temps To A Good Degree, With Full Control Over Her Powers IF NOT FULL MASTERY OF HER POWERS BY NOW She Can Fucking Fly, She Can Fucking Summon Huge Tornados Out Of The Sky Shown In This Movie Just As A Reference Point Make Clear Sunny Sky's Dark Rainy With Huge Amounts Of Lighting, Summon Elemental Attacks Like Freezing A Room Hardcore & Control Lightning~ ✔4) Nightcrawler Could Have Most Likely, IMO, Transported Everyone Fast As Fuck To Safety Out Of The Dam's Flooding~ ✔4 1/2) If Magento Was Around, He Would Have Been Written Into The Script Again Like "Damn, These People Still Can't Learn To Fly" And Help Their Plane And Get Out Of The Area & The Flood All Alive~ ✔5) Jean Grey Dies Like A Hero, I Will Admit That, But She Dies For No Fucking Reason Like Doug Says Clear As Day~ ✔

    18:20 Yet again, Doug needs to LIE to cram in criticism in disguie of a bad joke. Nightcrawler says RIGHT AFTER he can get stuck inside a wall - which isn't a problem when teleporting out in mid-air. Idiot.

    Mystique has a thing for Wolverine because women tend to get clingy after you’ve penetrated them.

    Actually, enough iron in the blood COULD do that. If you grind up a bunch of fortified cereal in water, you can stir a magnet through it and get filaments attached to it. Get enough together and you could PLAUSIBLY meld it together into a blob and harden it into a projectile. This is a world of mutants, he can control ferromagnetic things, therefore it's plausible.Also, Rogue couldn't fly at first. She only gained the power of flight after holding onto Ms. Marvel for too long once.

    Halfway through the vid and judging from the comments, I see that NC has continued its downward spiral from being good-natured sarcastic fun to being Cinemasins level nitpicky just for the sake of making a joke. Hope you rediscover that fun again in the future, doug.

    In defense of Magneto using the little metal balls I think that shows creativity of his power. He took the iron out of that guy’s body and turned it into his escape tools.

    Clearly, the NC is underestimating the strength of Air Traffic Control. It would be a very interesting fight.

    Wolverine Key Claw - Easy, because of his sharp claws, he can bypass the digit lock of a keys edge (I literally don't know the correct term for the bumps on keys) all he has to do is turn it.What The Did To Rogue - Yes, not giving her not her powers. Seriously, just read the comments of the first film's review.Pyro's Face-Heel Turn - It's literally set up since the begining of the film. He hates humanity, outlashes at teens and attempts to kill cops, doesn't agree with the ways of the X-Men, and gets told he's a god. He has literally all the reasons to join Magneto.Only way - Iceman is not powerful enough to freeze all that water. Storm can't control all elements, only weather. Xavier can't move things with his mind, he's a telepath, not telekentic.

    Wolverine is the only one who's ever beaten Mystique in a fight. That's my interpretation of her sudden attraction to him. That moment totally worked for me and says alot abour both characters in a small amount of time.

    This is like a Cinemasins video, it’s fucking awful. Every question raised is sorted by common sense. Why can’t Professor X pick up the jet? Cause he’s not telekinetic, moron. The majority of this video is just saying what’s happening, it’s kinda pointless I’m gonna be honest.

    I know everyone has said these thing, but I had to say them.1. The reason Jason made Charles think he was a little girl was because his power is not telepathy like Charles, but rather creating illusions, so he had to do that to gain his trust and it didn’t last as long as you said it did, and it was a sad moment when jason made Charles think he could walk again.2. Pyro’s turn was not out of nowhere because throughout the movie he was guy that wanted to show off his powers and Charles restrained him, and remember that pyro attacked all of those cops in the film, so when magneto offered him to join him, he took it as freedom from xavier, so he decided to join him.3. How is having a fast moment be followed by a slow moment a bad thing? Especially when you usually complain about when a fast moment is followed by another fast moment.4. How is making rogue more compelling a bad thing? All they did was make her more interesting, and I don’t mind it because it makes sense that she would be scared and tortured by her powers because her power is if she touches someone, they die. Also, when rogue was originally introduced, she was a timid villain looking for forgiveness.5. The scene with iceman’s parents was there to develop iceman.6. The only reason you complained about the jet fight, (which was awesome) was because you are used to the animated series where they fight mutants and sentinels, but that doesn’t make the action scene bad.7. Cyclops knew that logan and Jean had a thing because in the first film that was the whole reason he didn’t like logan.8. Iceman is not nearly powerful enough by the time of that movie to freeze the lake.9. Mystique making out with wolverine was a reference to the comics where they had a relationship.10. I always felt like Jean wanted to die because she was scared of the power growing inside of her and knew about the Phoenix. So when she said it was the only way, to me she was saying it was the only way to stop the Phoenix, but little did she know that water would make her become Phoenix.
