Was Quill a good person or a villian in the comic?

I'll admit Quill is an odd choice, as are Arclight and Callisto, if one is looking at this from the point of view of traditional Magneto brotherhood members.

However, Simon said they ruled out Brotherhood members Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch because Magneto's children deserved more of a storyline. That leaves us Blob (we may be getting the similar character Phat), Destiny (could have been an interesting, though rather passive non-action character), Phantazia (could also have been interesting with her explosive electromagnetic powers, but the energy source is similar to Magneto), Lorelei (singing hypnotises men.. could have been cool or very corny), and several others.

In a way, you can see how other known Brotherhood members were ruled out, especially as Magneto is broadening his troops for the war and thus adding in Marauders and Morlocks. If this is truly to be a last stand, then all known mutant forces are going to be somehow involved. From that point of view, Arclight and Callisto make sense for sure. Quill (the second one of the four comicbook characters with that name) was a member of a group called The Resistants who opposed the Mutant Registration Act, but is a somewhat less obvious choice, especially as a main member of the Brotherhood standing beside Magneto. They are probably avoiding any Hellfire Club representation, as that club - although part of the original Phoenix saga - warrants more than just token representation.

Blob, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver would've been really cool.

A role like Quill's is small. I want Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver to have more than that.

Blob would have been cool, I wonder how they'd do it...

I'm coming round to the idea of him as Quills. He looks awesome in that shot. I initially thought he'd just be covered in spikes and didn't know what he'd do other than curl up like a hedgehog for defense but now I know he can shoot those spikes out of him I'm excited!

Quill has kind of a dumb power. But it does look cool. Why did Ratner pick an asian guy for the part anyways?

It wasn't him picking an Asian guy, I think he was just picking a friend. Ken has worked in his movies before.

Why are so many people putting the emphasis on him being Asian??

exactly what i said. I would want a face or two that i knew and had worked with especially when being thrown head first into the production like Ratner was...

^ similar, but he looks more of a porcupine, whereas Spyke had big spikes!

I think this character was chosen because it shows some of the diversity of the effect the X-gene has on the human genome.

I mean, they can't all have fire/ice/lighning/laser/psychic powers.

I think we'll see alot of different mutant powers used in this film.

One of the most memorable X-Men moments I have is in the first episode of Season one for the TAS, where the Friends of Humanity are hunting mutants, and they come across two in an allyway - one turns into a shadow and the other morphs into a garbage bin.

Then, you see them beating up a hairy mutant who says "Please. I don't have any special powers. I just look different" - Great line in my opinion.



Anyway, anyone think Ken Leung looks like Demon Doyle from Season 1 of Joss Whedon's angel?

Spyke had control more over bone spikes and bone armor...

Quill's spikes are more connected with his hair...
