19HAD ENOUGH: MYSTIQUE

In the original films Mystique was Magneto’s loyal right hand woman, willing to do whatever it takes to advance the cause. Her lack of origin and lines helped her live up to her name, She was a fascinating villain, who was treated as Magneto’s equal. We love this

version, and are completely on board with seeing her in the MCU.

However, the emotionally compromised and unsure Mystique that has become the center of the younger team reboots is someone we don’t need to spend anymore time with. We understand giving the character a new story, but she was basically reinvented and frankly, it wasn’t always for the better. Magneto definitely needs Mystique, we just hope it’s the original one.
