Fantomex is a far less obvious a choice of name. But I guess they could say 'He calls himself Fantomex after a famous French thief' and hope the audience accepted it.
Right. He's obviously a favourite of yours. What powers would he have for the big screen?
Thats not not always the case with characters and that scene to me in FC came off as a fairly goofy. I personally see no problem in it. If someone was obssesd with creating a fake french persona and happened to be a thief as well the name makes sense. The name reflects his origin. Nobody would have to call him Fantomex. Some characters code names dont even get mentioned. I think that would be a mistake not calling him that but again just my opinion.
For powers Misdirection and enhanced ability with combat and weapons. This series has zero solid fighters besides Azazel. Which makes the action limited imo.
Id like to see EVA but I can understand why they would cut her.
