8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

8. Mystique

X-Men

This one is kind of a no-brainer. Jennifer Lawerence is an amazing (and A-list) actress, but she (and Rebecca Romijn) always falls flat for me in the X-Men movies.  Mystique is a mutant unlike anyone else.  Her ability to travel anywhere and go unnoticed by anyone should grant her a sense of being isolated and untouchable.  Instead, she is always surrounded by teammates, playing their games.

I want to see a Mystique who lives on the edge, takes name and plays by her own rules.  If she wants to be good for a while, that’s fine, but it should only happen when it suits her needs.  She shouldn’t be the leader of the X-Men, that honestly just doesn’t make any sense.  Mystique should be the James Bond of the mutant world.  A stealthy, spy-like character who knows how to get things done.  Whether she is infiltrating a base for her own good or because a team asked her to, I usually have total confidence Mystique will get out of a situation unharmed.

What does always pretending to be someone else do to one’s psyche? Make it happen Fox!
