All advanced civilizations are listening for signals, not sending them.

Imagine 10 people scattered across Earth several miles from one another. Each of them has a cell phone, but instead of dialing different combinations in the hopes of contacting one another, they just keep an eye on their respective phones, waiting for an incoming call.

Aliens are observing us like zoo animals.

Aliens are observing us like zoo animals.

Advanced beings are studying us from afar instead of interacting. There are many reasons why they might choose only to observe, whether it’s because they’re waiting for us to meet particular criteria as a civilization or they simply want to observe us in our natural habitat without knowledge of their existence.

29 Essential X-Men Things Somehow Left Out Of The X-Men Movies

They’ve made six X-Men films and four spinoffs, and yet so little of what makes X-Men the best comics franchise of all time has ever made it to the big screen.

The most iconic core group of X-Men from the late '70s into the mid '80s have never been a team on screen, and as a result key relationships have never been written into a film.

This would be Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Colossus, but could also include Jean Grey or Kitty Pryde. You know, the goddamn X-Men!

Edit: Apparently a version of this happens in The Last Stand, but this is a technicality. The important thing is context – this is part of Logan and Piotr's close relationship, and a lot of what makes it exciting is this being part of their teamwork. Colossus and Wolverine barely know each other in the films. Colossus is barely a character at all until Deadpool.
