After a well-received, but lackluster first run, director Bryan Singer and the merry mutants took it back to the lab and introduced fan favorites like Nightcrawler, invoking classic Chris Claremont storylines from the '70s comics. Oh, and they made the whole mutant thing an analogy for being gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
