Default Re: Jennifer Lawrence/Mystique: Oscar Winner Edition

Having the cure not work right away might make for better science (which is barely considered in stories about superheroes), but worse storytelling. The impact of Mystique getting the cure would have been completely ruined if she got hit with the darts, than three months later she slowly turned from blue to white. Leach as a character completely doesn't work if you don't accept that the X-gene can be instantly nullified.
