In X-Men 2 you see in a very short scene the name of a jet-pilot, CAPT. RAYGUN MacLAI.
I googled a bit, but only found a name from battlestar galactica which sounds similar, Captain Raymond "Raygun" Lai, but this is from 2008, so newer than the movie.
So my question (in two parts)
Is this just a generic name for the movie, or is this a known character from the X-Men or Marvel-universe? If so, can you provide some information about this character?
Is there a connection between the Battlestar Character and the X-Men character?
