Thanks for the link, LightYears!

Not arguing with you there, sum1. Blame Bryan Singer's preference for beta-males.

Beta-males aren't necessarily short, nor are short males necessarily beta-males. Look at the comic book version of Wolverine. He's 5'3" and he's no beta for sure. And while he's an extreme example, he echoes many real-life men who are short but formidable. Similarly, tall men can be betas. One can argue that Colossus is, for all his physical strength.

Yeah, I know that Wolverine is short in the comics, sum1. And John Rambo isn't all that tall either. But I'm not just talking about the height. Look at both Tye and James as Cyclops. They remind me of Jason Priestly in Beverly Hills 90210. You get what I mean.

I don't know, I think Marsden has a fairly strong presence. But Tye comes off too much like an awkward kid in the role.

Really? You think Marsden had a strong presence even in the first movie? They kept marginalizing him in favor of Wolverine. I agree with Tye.

That's a matter of how they treated him in the film, which is different from the question of what sort of acting presence he has.

Well, I just didn't like the way Cyclops was represented in the films regardless.

And I have to go to bed now, sum1. Daylight Savings Time ends today and we set our clocks back, so I'm gonna catch up on that extra hour before I have to go into work tomorrow morning. I'll see you tomorrow. Goodnight and sleep well!

Thanks for the link, LightYears! She's a welcome addition to the X-Men universe.

She'd have been better as Jean Grey.

Yep. Or Evan Rachel Wood. But Jessica's in her late 30's now. She can't really play Jean as a student in the Xavier Institute.

She can play Jean as an adult.
