    Nightcrawler was able to save Rogue because she was free falling through the AIR. He is scared about teleporting into an object... since he has no idea what the room looks like inside, it's always possible he'll teleport into a control console, or a filing cabinet.

You just stated...That This Powerfully Telekinetic/Telepathic mutant, whose idea to save her mutant friends from drowning in a raging waterfall inside a jet by stepping out of the jet, lifting the jet and building a psychic wall towards the waterfall, waiting for it to claim her life while her mutant friends are saved...was THE ONLY WAY to save them.

Here though most of your complaints felt like too focused nitpicks.

    Wolverine did date Mystique in WW2, later on she would date Sabretooth before settling down with Magneto. I know this because I have a copy of that particular run. It was a Sabretooth 4 issue miniseries from way back in 1993. I think she also had a thing with Mister Sinister but I'm not sure if it was mutual.

      Basically to also be able to hold off the water. She is neither super powerful nor super fast in the movie. She is also shown to direct her powers with her hands and in general needing to at least see the target for some time. It may not be totally like in the comics where she developed way past this level, but she was also not that powerful in the early comics as well.

    the thing about nightcrawler teleporting out of the plane is that it was in the air, there was no chance that he could teleport into somthing dangerous, he teleported roughly where he thought she was and caught her, i do admit him teleporting back inside the plane is a stretch, but you could blame that on stress, people can do crazy things when they are under a lot of stress, in the facility, nightcrawler wasnt under any real stress, at least not in the same way as before, so he didnt think he could teleport into a room where he could easely accidently telleport into somthing.
