Default Storm VS Mystique

One think I like about the X-Men movies was that they featured many strong female characters as opposed to The Avengers which seems to be only pushing Black Widow (She is awesome though).

X-Men however, has always pushed one female character per movie in terms of promotion, and screen time. In X1 it was Rogue/Anna. In X2 and X3 it was Storm/Halle. For FC it was Mystique/Jennifer.

Now not to say that Ellen, Anna and all the other female actors/characters in this movie are not important but I think it's safe to say that when it comes to the main female character in this movie the producers will either be going with Mystique or Storm simply because a) they both were the main female characters in their respective films, (and in the case of Halle was one of the faces of the OT) and thus will be more recognised by the GA and b) JLaw and HB are the biggest female stars in the DOFP and are actually bigger than most of the male actors.

Now the purpose of this thread is compare the two characters. Disregarding what we personally think about what we think Fox or Bryan will do but based solely on our views of what we think would better suit the film, if one of the two had to be the main character who do you think it should be? We know that both will feature quite heavily in this film but who should get that very top spot and why?

She’s going to be more bad-ass in this movie, which will be nice. A lot more bad-ass than Hunger Games. Which will be fun to see, because she’s very feisty, as you may have noticed in Silver Linings.”
