Logan: 3 questions that arise after the end of the film
Logan is certainly an intense and impressive film but some elements of his plot have left us puzzled. So here are 3 questions we ask after seeing it!
And here, the chaotic and difficult course of Wolverine ended on a tragic but necessary note. Logan , with its heavy atmosphere and life-defeated characters, turns out to be one of the best films in the X-Men franchise , finally giving our hero to the adamantium claws the solo story he deserved. However, as incredible as Logan may be, some elements of his plot have left us a little perplexed. And several questions remained unanswered when the credits began to scroll. Among these, there is of course the one concerning the events of Westchester, which are only evoked in Logan and never shown. Even if we can get a good idea of what happened thanks to the different information that we get during the film. But Logan also leaves us with other questions, some directly related to the situation of the mutants as described. So we certainly want to bow to the suspension of disbelief dear to the poet Coleridge, but it is also clear that we can not help but ask a few questions about several elements of the film .
What is Eden?
We hear for the first time of Eden thanks to the nurse who saved Laura. As the name implies, this place would be a kind of paradise for the mutants , who would live there together and in peace. This explains why Laura is so determined to go there. Only here, we soon learn that this famous Eden is only mentioned … in the comics about the X Men who, in Logan , relate in part the past adventures of our heroes. Well, it turns out that Eden – or at least something approaching – exists in a corner of Canada. The evidence shows that children who have escaped from Transigen receive an anonymous call from across the border inviting them to pass into the neighboring country. But the question that then arises is: What is Eden and how was it created? Because in this world where mutants have almost all disappeared, where they are once again perceived as a real threat because of the Westchester events, it is hard to see how such a place could exist with impunity . And most importantly, how did the nurses in Transigen know that there really was … even though the other teams in the project, including the Reavers, did not seem to know? That is very mysterious. How did the nurses in Transigen know that there really was … even though the other teams in the project, including the Reavers, did not seem to know? That is very mysterious.

How did the other children survive?
If, like Logan, you were surprised to find yourself in the middle of a band of mutant children at the end of the movie, melty reassures you, you probably are not alone! We still wonder how the small group managed to find their way to these huts not far from the Canadian border, without the visible help of anyone. When one sees just how much Logan and Laura have gone so far, it is evidently hard to accept that these children have reached their destination as quickly . Not that their abilities are questioned! It was clear that together they were able to stand up to a group of well-trained Reavers. But we also saw that in the end they were not big enough to fight indefinitely. Especially since, as we understand it, The Reavers used to track adult mutants and therefore all the more tough. And it was certainly not the terrified nurses who brought them out who were able to protect them from the Reavers and lead them up to that point! So to say that seeing them all together is a bit of a miracle. Unless, of course, Laura was the only one to be hunted that way.
Is Transigen really responsible for the disappearance of mutants?
In Logan , the majority of mutants have disappeared, the last survivors trying to hide their difference from the rest of the world. But worse, no mutant child seems to have come into the world for several years. The reasons for this phenomenon are however given us soon: it is of course Transigen who is behind their disappearance . Not only did the project developers track down all the mutants to eliminate them, but they also found a way to suppress the mutant gene in people. This is just genetically modified corn syrup. And then, we think that it seems a little too big to be true. Already because, even if Americans are really addicted to corn syrup, it is obvious that they do not all drink. This is statistically impossible. Second, because the problem of the disappearance of mutants appears to be global and not restricted to America. So how did Transigen succeed in flooding the world with her famous corn syrup? We want to believe that it has replaced Coca (and still!) But not that the whole world could be touched. Or then Transigen has a very, very long arm … What did you think of the film? ) But not that the whole world could be affected.
