If you watch the extra scene after the credits, Xavier has transferred his consciousness to the body in a coma he was referring to in the ethics class earlier in the film. This was when he asked, would it be ethical for a telepath to take over a body which was born with no mind and so kept in a coma for its entire life. He is smiling as he has an escape ...

TL;DR : It was a combination of the two - Logan's healing factor + Jean's subconscious... but mostly Jean. The scene in question, and in fact much of the plot for the movie, is loosely based on the original Dark Phoenix Saga that took place in The X-Men #129-138 waaaay back in 1980. At the end of that saga, Jean Grey Within the context of the movie, ...

At the time I took it for acceptance of death, as you say. After seeing the end of the film, however, with the obvious tease that Xavier had placed his mind in the body of a braindead coma patient, I changed my mind. I would assume the smile was actually the closest he could come at the time to informing Logaan that he was not, in fact, about to die. He'd ...

Old Xavier did use his power in the movie: He communicated with his younger self through Logans consciousness (the scene where young X searched Logans mind to find "himself") He seems to know that Logan is close to archiving the goal, he is saying something along the lines of "He is close, he needs just a little more time" when the attack starts outside. ...

I haven't read the comic, but I have seen X-Men: The Last Stand multiple times. In the climax of the film, we see Phoenix expelling energy/power in all directions while Wolverine walks towards her. This energy/power comes out in waves, as we can see when he is occasionally pushed back or forced to stand still when a larger "wave" hits him. As he continues ...

Several factors come into play. Firstly, X-Men 3 does not tend to be considered canon: According to Lauren Schuler Donner, one of the producers of all of those films, you can now safely consider X-Men 3: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine as non-canon. She explains this at the premier to X-Men: Days of Future Past: “Just forget about ...

There is some information about ideas that were considered for the third X-Men movie in this podcast. Found this via this forum post, here's a transcript of the relevant part:

It's the same person, but Last Stand and First Class occur on different timelines, thanks to Wolverine changing the past in Days of Future Past. Moira's life from ~1975 onward was rewritten in the process. Moira McTaggert is a recurring character in the X-Men comic book series, a former love interest of Charles Xavier. So, it would make sense for her to ...

While Marvel has a long list of fraternal twins in its ranks - incidences of identical twins are much more limited. The more common fraternal twins usually have different mutations, but the rare identical twins mostly seem to have the same or very similar mutations. Examples are mostly minor characters but over the years, in the comics, we've seen: 1. ...

The X-Men Annual (Volume #2) gives a pretty good idea of the layout of the "X-Mansion". Assuming the film layout is similar, the operating theatre is at least 50-100 feet underground. This would be easily enough to shield the house overhead from both the noise and the minor vibrations that the Phoenix is causing, as well as possibly providing some shielding ...

Days of Future past will bring together "first class" the prequel movie about how Xavier and Magento came to be, and the Original Trilogy of films. Xmen Origins: Wolverine is a prequel as well of the Trilogy, setting up how Wolverine came to be. The movie "The Wolverine" is a sort of sequel to "Last Stand", but a prequel to "Days of Future Past." The latter ...
