What really kills me about these films is that they should be about acceptance and loving who you are...and in most of the films they make mutations seem like something you can turn on and off...
That's a very good point - and worth them considering for future stories.

However, if they include Sinister, that's about experimenting on mutants (he does that to himself to mutate himself, and modifies mutants' powers), and if they do Apocalypse, that's also about changing mutants (into horsemen), perhaps under the guise of curing them (as in the 90s animated series).

I don't know off the top of my head how you get away from the central idea of human evolution and wanting to eradicate, manipulate or accelerate that change. Classic stories like the legacy virus, Mutant Massacre, House of M, all centre on those ideas.

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