I presume she's not Logan's secret wife, as was revealed in the comics some years ago.. She is clearly working for the corporation that Logan's old friend is the head of.. I wonder is she tied into HYDRA or because of the Marvel Studios rights issues she's cut off from that?
She won't be tied into HYDRA.

She's Viper and they've made her more snakelike, more viper-ish. The comics version has an enhanced lifespan, so maybe they've reinterpreted it for film as an ability to regenerate herself. Perhaps it's someone Wolverine knew decades before and she reveals herself again, it's difficult to know what happens from that brief moment of her sloughing her skin like a snake.

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