  • So, I'm confused. We have the most recent versions of the X-Men characters we've seen as the first infobox picture, right? So why is Wolverine's Prime Self picture first? And why is Caliban's Younger picture first? And why are some labeled with years and not Younger Self/Older Self like the others? And why isn't Deadpool's Weapon XI foorm in his infobox? Sorry if this feels like a lot, I'm just really confused! Thanks man and sorry again!

    • Sorry for the late response. Our general rule of thumb is to use "Revised Timeline/Original Timeline" for most characters, but we make exceptions for certain characters. "Younger Self/Older Self" is usually for characters from the original X-Men films whose younger counterparts are played by different actors, but will "grow" into their older counterparts in the franchise's future. For example, Professor X was portrayed by Patrick Stewart in the original movies. In the newer movies, his younger self was played by James McAvoy, but we know from Days of Future Past and Logan that McAvoy's Professor X eventually ages into Stewart's Professor X. Characters who were simply recast due to the timeline changes will get "Revised Timeline/Original Timeline".

      We use the younger picture first because that's the version of the character that is most recent to audiences. With Wolverine, because he was practically immortal and played by the same actor across all the films, we had to use special designations to show how he aged across time. And in Deadpool's case, his Weapon XI form didn't have an official promo poster, so we didn't include it.
