I wouldn't care if a future movie introduce a completely new character created for the movies as long as he/she didn't completely overshadow the already established characters.

A character created for the movies? No way! Unless the character has a small role but it shouldn't be an Xman.

Only if it was absolutely necessary, as when I was trying to write a short X-Comic, I couldn't think of any X-men with the power I needed, but with some research I found it

... so i guess I'll sum up and restate, only if you have to

The X-Universe is huge with tons of unknown characters that deserve to be revived, maybe you could tweak a minor character to match what you invision

After X3, one can only cringe at the thought.

I sort of have a made-up mutant in a very minor role in my script, but I'm looking into combining a couple real characters instead. See, I've got a couple scenes following Rogue during her depowered time. Bobby breaks up with her and she leaves the mansion, hooking up with another X-Mutant named Freddie, who she ends up killing by accident when her powers return. Freddie is a real character from a time in the comics when Rogue was depowered; but in my script, I'm turning him into another cure patient (helps create the initial bond) and I made up his former power. I'm thinking of combining him with an unimportant mutant so I'm not creating other mutants, lol.

So, my answer? Unless it's a minor role, it's a bad idea.

If they created a new character I wouldn't even bother to watch the movie. Why create something new when you've already got so many stock characters (with huge fan bases) that haven't seen the big screen yet? Creating a new character that has no history to worry about is just lazy.

See Spike in X-Men Evo. They basically stole Marrow's powers, tweaked them a bit, and threw them onto some teenager that had never been heard of before. LAME.

And if that wasn't bad enough, they also took the "Poochie the Dog" route and made him a bas pastiche of "kewl" teen stereotypes.

The X-Universe has a lot of characters already. Why create one when you have a bazillion mutants around. And no, I wouldn't want a brand new X-Men character for the movies, I still remember the Magician fiasco in the Ultimate line

There is no need for a new character. The Marvel X-Men Encyclopedia is sure to have one with the powers needed.

well considering there are tons of x-men characters waiting to be done, not to mention there are plenty of already existing movie character waiting to be done well, i think i'd be a lil peeved.

the character that was throwing spikes at wolverine was originally created for the animated series known as x-men evolution.

it was a black character modelled on marrow who was a nephew of storms.

he managed to make a cameo in the x-men films and real comic book characters like gambit didn't.

people got upset.

I would get pissed off. I'm still waiting for Scott and Ororo to show up on screen and be active members in the X-men, let alone as distinguished stylized leaders with character issues.

Evo is the X-Men: Evolution animated series, the more recent of the cartoon series.

No, you are wrong. The Evo character who was Storm's nephew was 'Spyke'

The movie character was 'Spike' based loosely on the comicbook character also called Spike - one version is a member of the X-Statix, another is in the New X-Men comic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_%28Marvel_Comics%29

The moviemakers originally intended to put Omega Red into X3, to fight Wolverine, but for some reason scrapped that idea, perhaps to keep Omega Red for a Wolverine solo movie. We instead got a version of the comicbook Spike, who extruded bone projections from his wrist in a similar fashion to the way Omega Red's coils come from his wrist.

So, people shouldn't have 'got upset' unless they didn't know better. Spike in the movie is based on the mutant Spike from the comics.

I'd rather see a brief scene with the small character Spike than a brief scene with the more well-known Gambit.

...and Spike in the comics is based on Spyke from X-Men: Evolution, so it all goes back to X-Men: Evolution anyway, right?

Nah, you got the wrong "Spike" or "Spyke" or however it's spelled... I don't know about X-Men Evolution (never heard of it before)... but "Spike" in the movie was the thug-lookin kid that hung out with Psylocke, Arclight and that other chick that can detect mutants... Spike was the one that had retractable porcupine-like spines that came out of his head... your thinking of "Marrow" that battle Wolverine when he entered the camp... that's a real character (but was actually a chick in the comics)

Nope. You're wrong, wrong, wrong.

The porcupine man in X3 was calld Quill. Qull is in the comics in several incarnations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quill_%28comics%29

The man who fought Wolverine was Spike.

That's the correct answer.
