Bright isn’t about aliens, it’s orcs and elves and magic and shit. Imagine Lord of the Rings took place 4000 years ago, and the orcs and elves stuck around afterwards, melding into human society. That’s the setting for Bright. Will Smith’s partner is an orc. The Bright universe was more interesting to me than the actual movie. While I did enjoy the movie and would watch a Bright 2, I think I’d rather see other movies set in the universe.
The X-Men didn’t really ‘hit’ until Giant-Sized X-Men in 1975 (I think). That’s when most of the originals are ‘dead’ and they introduce Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler (my personal favorite X-Men character), Colossus, and Thunderbird (who dies fairly quickly for shock value, though he’s in the tv show ‘The Gifted’ now, so I guess there’s that).
Cable was sent to the future because he was infected by a virus that was created by Apocalypse. I can’t remember the specifics, but I think it’s because Cable was / is destined to kill Pooky some day. The virus was incurable in ‘present day’, but could be managed in the future.
I wouldn’t call Cable a ‘do-gooder’, at least not by traditional standards. He’s from an apocalyptic future and came back to try and prevent it. He’s basically Kyle Reese. The reason he’s fought so many heroes (like Captain America) is that his methods often put him at odds with other heroes, including the Avengers and the traditional X-Men teams. The best way to describe his relationship with the X-Men would be to say Cable is to the X-Men what the Punisher is to the Avengers.
