Of course you can enjoy it on it's own, but it would be a pretty character-less eye candy punch up movie with quips otherwise, yes, people do enjoy those types of movie a great deal, and as a punch up movie, it is one of the best. But if Avengers had been released without the solo movies, a lot of people on here would be complaininbg over lack of character development for Cap/IM/Thor...but because of the solo moives, it gets almost universal praise on these boards.

I get that was the intention. I just thought it was an extremely unbelievable one based on her characters other interactions with important characters in her life and her fear of violence.

Ive gotten into this debate a few times. As a fan of the comics and Raven in X1 and 2. I was annoyed by this Mystique and thought she was pretty weak. She is worthy of being more interesting. If you dug the take its all good.
Well, you could say that her fear of violence might be counter-acted by her fear of dying, as of course it was Magneto who was warning them all along the 'humans' would do something like that, and it was his powers that saved them. She may feel that violence is inevitable for her kind in this world, and wants to protect herself by allying with the army who is better prepared, and has her best interests at heart, ie makes her feel comfortable in her own skin.
