Mystique

Comics Continuity: Raven Darkholme was the biological mother (with Sabretooth) of the late Senator Graydon Creed and (with an unidentified man) of X-Man Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler); She is, emotionally, the "mother" of Rogue. A Shapeshifter, though taking taking an image does not mean she can duplicate powers, Rogue was the successor to Magneto as leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. She has also served as leader of a government sanctioned "Freedom Force" mutant hunting team. (1:Ms. Marvel 18) In the Film continuity: Mystique has the same powers (meaning she could duplicate Professor X down to a molecular level, and still not have telepathic powers). No kids but a martial arts fighting style that is incredible to watch. All other continuity has been wiped from the map.

Rebecca Romijn-Stamos: This movie is for everyone who's ever felt like an outcast, and I think we've all felt like that at some time. When I was a teenager I was much taller and skinner than all my friends and I was really uncomfortable in my skin and didn't want anything below my neck to even exist. Everybody feels like an outsider at some point. Everyone can relate to that. I think we're just reacting to the way all the mutants have been ostracized by humanity. We're just reacting in a different way than the X-men are. We're violent. My line in the helicopter: "People like you are the reason I was afraid to go to school." I think provides the reason that we're so angry. We're fighting back as opposed to trying to educate the world and live in harmony. We're preparing for the war.
