The island is a peaceful utopia where all mutants are encouraged and possibly forced to erase past conflicts and bond together. Scott and Emma are also still in a sexual relationship of their own, as Storm mentions in Marauders 8. It was clear that Jean was sleeping with both men, but it was unclear when her partners were simply in simultaneous relationships with her or if the new love triangle connected at every point. After the opening scene and the title page, the story cuts to the Summer House, where Scott and Logan are spending an early morning together. The latter is kicking back in a light bathrobe while Cyclops is in full costume sans the trademark head-sock. Logan admits that the scenery is hard to pass up, especially Jean in a bikini.
The film's script is loosely based on two X-Men comic book story arcs: " The Dark Phoenix Saga " by writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne , and " Gifted " by writer Joss Whedon and artist John Cassaday , with a plot that revolves around a "mutant cure" that causes serious repercussions among mutants and humans, and on the resurrection of Jean Grey. Bryan Singer , who had directed the two previous films, X-Men and X2 , decided to leave the sequel to work on Superman Returns. X2 composer John Ottman and X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty also left to work on Superman Returns , as did James Marsden , who had very limited screen time in The Last Stand before his character was killed off due to his departure from the film.
The near-romance between Wolverine and Jean has been a constant fixture of X-Men comics since the Phoenix Saga, but the two have never officially hooked up. Jean finally decided to succumb to temptation in the Morrison era, but ironically Logan turned her down, having realized they wouldn't work out. Jonathan Hickman's X-Men relaunch has seen the entire mutant race gather on the living island of Krakoa. The mutants are building a new society, abandoning conventional human norms, and there's been some evidence this involves their embracing polyamory. Given one of Krakoa's new laws is to "make new mutants," it's safe to say the X-Men are getting busy.
