Disagree 100% on Mystique. She doesnt connect to X1 or 2 well at all in the end and its a forced set up. She is one of the worst parts of the flick imo. Violence, being stealthy and mystery is a huge part of Mystique. All that was thrown out the window.
Again I think Avengers works better because it uses those characters to their full advantage, not just character wise but scale wise. While many X Men films (not just FC) hasnt. Cyclops, Gambit, Storm, Deadpool and just about every other X character have been thrown to the side or ruined for Logan, Prof X and Magneto screen time. These films have not came close to the potential of the comics or why people have read them for decades.
I think DOFP will be the first X film to compete with Avengers in terms of quality and scale.

There was another script before Vaughn and Goldman rewrote it. How much of it is similar, I have no idea. All I know is that the plot and characters were chosen before they rewrote.
