    Blue Ambitions: The Beast & Mystique X3 Thread.
    Thread inspired by SHH! member Lightnin' Strikez!

    Welcome to the first official thread dedicated solely to Kelsey Grammer aka Dr. Hank McCoy (Beast) and Rebecca Romijn aka Raven Darkholme (Mystique)...the fantastic BLUE characters of X3 (sorry, Nightcrawler) :( Here, we will discuss all things blue, in relation to both Beast and Mystique respectively.

    You can discuss Nightcrawler as well, but seeing as he's possibly going to not be featured anywhere in X3, the thread is titled to the two character who are locked and confirmed.Lets talk about the
    comic book characters, the actors, and their roles in X3. Also feel free to post your favorite pictures of these fantastic blue mutants!

    Beast is an awesome character and Kelsey Grammer is perfect for the role.

    Oooooh, nice formatting.

    Next, that sketch of Beast makes him look like some kind of giant sloth.

    Finally, I wonder whether we'll get to see Beast and Mystique in a scene together? I suspect not, unless she's in the form of Senator Kelly.

    BEAST:
    The Comic Book Character


    [​IMG]

    Codename:
    Beast
    Real Name: Dr. Henry 'Hank' Philip McCoy
    Sex:Male
    Race:Homo Superior
    Occupation: X-Man, Scientist
    Identity: Publicly known
    Legal Status:Citizen of the United States with no criminal record
    Place of Birth: Dunfee, Illinoise
    Marital Status: Single
    Known Relatives: Norton McCoy - father; Edna McCoy - mother.
    Current Group Membership:The X-Men
    Former Group Membership: The Avenger, The Defenders, X-Factor
    Base of Operations: Xavier School for the Gifted


    Known Superhuman Powers: Hank McCoy has superhuman strength and endurance, as well as superhuman coordination (he can perform many tasks with his feet as easily as a human would do with his hands) and speed. The physical manifestations of his mutation are his elongated limbs and oversized extremeties, which were evident since birth. Experimenting with his mutation, Hank inadvertently gave himself blue (originally grey) fur and a more simian posture. Following a critical injury, he mutated even further, changing from a primate to a more feline appearance. His level of superhuman strength and speed have been augmented moderately over the years by these various physiological changes, but it should be noted that they remain purely a product of his enhanced physiology, rather than of any higher power source.

    They said that?

    I hope it's true because I think the looks in both cartoons are done well.

    Mystique:
    The Comic Character

    [​IMG]

    Real Name: Raven Darkholme
    Alias: Mystique; Mallory Brickman
    Place Of Birth: Unknown
    Birthdate: Unknown
    Species: Human/Mutant (Homo Superior)
    Age: Unknown
    Eye Color: Yellow
    Hair Color: Red/Orange
    Weight: 120 lbs.
    Height: 5'10
    Family And Friends: Unofficial Foster Daughter - Rogue; Husband - Ralph Brickman; Daughter - Gloria Brickman; Son - Graydon Creed (Deceased)

    History: Little has been revealed about Mystique's past. Indeed, since she can eliminate the outward signs of aging with her shape-changing power, it is not known exactly how old she is. She apparently learned to use her shape-changing power at a very early age, for there is no evidence known to the public or the United States government that Raven Darkholme ever looked like anything but a normal human being. Years ago Mystique had an affair with the mutant Sabretooth and they had a son, Graydon Creed, the recently assassinated presidential candidate. Mystique has also claimed to be the mother of Nightcrawler, a member of the X-Men, as the result of a liaison with another, unnamed man. Mystique is known to be a longtime friend of the mutant Destiny who is now deceased. At some point in recent years Mystique became the protectress of the young mutant named Rogue, and looked upon Rogue as a surrogate daughter.

    Powers: Mystique is a mutant metamorph. She can psionically shift the atoms and molecules of her body and of whatever clothing she is wearing so as to change her and its appearance. As a result she can cause herself to look and sound like an exact duplicate of any human, humanoid, or semi-humanoid being of either sex, wearing virtually any kind of clothing. Her control is so exact that she can precisely duplicate another person's retina pattern in her own eyes, finger, palm and skin-pore patterns on her own hands and skin, and vocal cords to match voices to the point of corresponding voiceprints.

    First Appearance:
    As Raven Darkholme, in the comic Ms. Marvel #16; as Mystique, in the comic Ms. Marvel #18

    You have to wonder how she managed to slide backward through those doors. I mean, the floor doesn't look that slippery.

    You'll note on the trailer the scene is changed slightly too to make it available to a wider audience.

    I actually like the Evolution version of Beast. I like the fact that they made him not so blue, but rather gun metal greyish.

    I hope this is NOT what beast will look like in x3...he looks like a sloth, or a bad monster from a bad horror movie

    Perhaps the floor was powdered as opposed to oiled. Talcum powder works wonders, especially when combined with the prosthetic appliances she wore.

    How will Beast be brought to the big screen?
    A look at previous quotes.

    [size=-1]Mike Elizalde mentioned earlier that Kelsey Grammer had been life scanned for his Beast suit, and talks about the Beast effects @ IESB.net (Video interview)
