Warren is a flighty guy with wings since X-Force. Bobby is dealing with being an adult and gay, but he's almost indistinguishable from his younger counterpart. Beast is a bit off and has been for a while. Cyclops is dead. Jean is dead.
Wouldn't the best way to deal with the O5 is just to age them appropriately...make them about in the 20s and leave it at that? Maybe even merge them with their dopplegangers from this time so that they have their experiences, but also their own experiences?
I mean, that is a derivation of the Phoenix power, but I think one that could easily bring characters back into their proper places without retconning everything.
Because I still rather like O5 Jean Grey trying to be someone different. I like a Scott Summers that got to spend time with his dad. I like a Bobby dealing with his sexuality and a Warren having a weird relationship with Laura. Heck, I prefer the O5 Beast to the 616 Beast because at least he's not all mad scientist mode.
It would make sense to just do a replacement swap and age them. Because it would be just stupid to kill them off, because that would be mean-spirited and crappy...like mind-wiping them and putting them back into the original stories.
