X2 Easter Egg - Comic Characters and Places Revealed

When Mystique slips into Lady Deathstryke's office and accesses the computer, a listing of names is shown. When this movie first came out, I downloaded a bootleg copy of the movie, and freeze framed it during this scene, wrote down the names and such, and sent the list to several major movie news sites, namely Ain't It Cool News, Cinescape, etc. Only Cinescape had an article about it, which was copied by IMDB and later published in Wizard Magazine. To see the Cinescape article about this, here's the link:

But if you are lazy, here's the rundown of all the names, places, etc on the two computer screens and their comic book relevance/code names:

Guthrie, Paige (Husk)
Guthrie, Samuel (Cannonball)
Harada, Keniucho (Silver Samurai)
Kane, Garrison (Weapon X)
LeBeau, Remy (Gambit)
Lensherr, Eric M (Magneto)
Maddicks, Artie (Artie)
Madrox, Jamie (Multiple Man)
Mahn, Xi'an Coy (Karma)
Maximoff (2) (Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver. Names weren't specified)
McTaggart, Kevin (Proteus)
Moonstar, Danielle (Moonstar)
Munroe, Ororo (Storm)
--Other Computer Screen--
Omega Red (Russian mutant super soldier)
Muir Island (Scottish mutant research facility, home of X-Team known as Excalibur)
Project Wideawake (Codename for Sentinel project)
Franklin Richards (Son of Fantastic Four's Reed Richards and Sue Storm, born a mutant)
Cerebro (Mutant tracking device created by Professor Xavier and Magneto)

There you have it. Most fans of the comics might have seen it all, but only remember just a few names, well fellow geeks, that's all f-f-f-folks!

Good list. I would have mentioned that, in the comics, the Maximoffs are Magneto's children

My friend, you forgot Remy LeBeau, a.k.a. Gambit, and frankly, I am offended. Besides Magneto, Storm, and Cerebro, he is the only one who had a major role in the cartoon series.
