Only point I can really explain to a degree (based on the movies) is regarding Xavier.

This was back in 2006, when no one knew they were supposed to stay for after the credits :V
I do remember that now. It's been awhile since I've watched the three movies, but Xavier was physically ripped to shreds from Jean's powers. So even then I wonder how he appeared in the hospital bed. (This all happened within the Last Stand so I feel like it should be explained since it doesn't relate to any other movie). But it doesn't matter anymore because
[spoiler]As of now, he never actually died since Jean was somehow saved and I'm assuming a lot of the events from "The Last Stand" never happened...?[/spoiler]
