X-Men: The Last Stand - The Juggernaut Error

warning: x-men 3 spoilers within this post
I recently learned from a friend about a liberty that the writer took with the character of Juggernaut in X-Men: The Last Stand.
Cain Marko (Juggernaut) is not a mutant, rather he is Dr. Charles Xavier's human step-brother who received his powers of force, unpenetratable skin and unstoppability through a mystic gem.

This character issue would not be an issue if it were not for the fact that in the presence of Jimmy/Leech, Juggernaut looses all of his powers. Yet only the X-gene of mutants should be surpressed not Juggernaut's supernatural powers. In which case Leach and Kitty Pryde should not have been able to escape as they did.

That is just one of the many sins committed in this movie by Brett the Hack Ratner .. just way too mutants and way too many unresolved storylines for me!

Not to mention, Juggernaut was paralyzed in the floor by Kitty Pride... no way for his arms and legs to get momentum. So he should not have been able to break his arms free.

He's still got the super strength thang goin' for him, so that's why he was able to free himself.

At least they revealed that kick-ass "fastball special" move with Wolvie and Collossus. "Snikt!"

What's that? None of this is real? God, I'm wasting my life with all this comic book crap!

There are so many things wrong with this movie; too many characters, underdeveloped major storylines, overdeveloped useless subplots, bad action sequences... nitpicking a character is the least of the problems. So disappointing in comparison to part two.

I don't know that there were quite that many problems, althought the amount of underdeveloped characters was a little overwhelming. However I thought the fluctuation between Jean and the Dark Phoenix were well done. I especially liked the music.
