Yes, that's because many of the characters in First Class weren't given 'character moments' where we got an idea of who they are.

I don't think X2 is perfect but it did manage to give people those moments, and those moments matter a lot if you want your characters to be more than just wallpaper.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
