I liked Lawrence's Mystique even if she didn't look as good in blue make-up as Rebecca Romijn, who totally inhabited the role. The thing is how does the young version become the older version, who never shows any hint of knowing Xavier (just as he never acknowledges knowing her). If they can explain that, then fine. It surely involves Emma Frost's psychic tampering, a sort of equivalent of what she did with Jean Grey in the comics to make her the Dark Phoenix.
Get rid of J-Law's Mystique, bring back Emma Frost and Banshee - and properly develop Storm, Psylocke, Angel and Jubilee. Stop butchering the source material!
