    Totally agree Matt. People are just nitpicking. Like there is a way that science can really explain anything realistically is absurd.

    I have to say she's growing on me right now. I just watched The Hunger Games again and her thriller movie, House at the End of the Street. And that I thought she was amazing!!!

    I can't wait for Mock1ngjay!!!

    I liked Mystique's arc in that she was basically getting deeper and deeper, and then had to make the decision to turn back, though I would have liked to have seen her going from schoolgirl to spy a bit more, but I understand why we didn't see that in DOFP, and the impact of that was certainly felt even if we didn't see it. There was sort of a "Mystique assembles her Brotherhood" thing going on. I would imagine that's why she "rescued" Wolverine at the end of the movie.

    Just accept it. There is no explanation why in First class they decided to make her abilities work that way.

    The same thing with Emma Frost powers.

    Mystique become a statue in X1

    If you really think about it hard enough in these movies you could find holes everywhere, plenty alone in DOFP, heck you could be here for hours talking about quicksilvers powers

    Sometimes when you think too much into the little things, it really spoils the experience. Best to just accept things like that.

    There's no harm in asking questions about things, or even saying some things are hard to accept, that's what forums like this thrive on. It's not necessarily nitpicking to talk about something, dislike it or disbelieve it.

    The physics of it alone are questionable, when he stands still and somehow is still moving very quickly almost as if time freezes rather then him actually moving fast

    It looks good and that's likely why its there

    First Class changed origin in general and Mystique's powers are not the major one

    Mystique is naked in First Class when she changes form and her clothes change. She is likely naked at the CIA meeting because she or Charles might have felt it might be necessary to change completely to demonstrate her powers.

    As shown in X1, Mystique can create certain objects when she changes, like Wolverine's claws. Hence, when she changes into the flight suit, it is likely it has a similar effect to actually wearing the flight suit.

    The only time she is wearing clothes is when she changes form and her clothes don't change, like when she is weight lifting and Magneto points out that she shouldn't have to focus on keeping herself in human form all the time.

    For the ID: Simple, they gave it to her and she created her own and threw the real one away.

    And in X1, she uses her Wolverine claws to cut through a chain. No, they aren't as strong as adamantium, but they have metal properties.

    She is also seen putting a cell phone away in her jacket pocket when she is impersonating Senator Kelly's aid in the helicopter where they kidnap him and pretty much immediately changes after doing so.

    I hate when artist add the scales with the comic's white dress and skull. They make no sense together.

    Because motion capture here would be completely unnecessary. Why waste money when Mystique is a humanoid female with blue skin & orange hair? That doesn't really scream "motion capture" to me. Someone like the Hulk or Thanos, yeah, I get it.

    But characters like Mystique? Using mo-cap would be lazy, lame, & imho, a cop-out.

    Wait a sec. I do not recall Her using the claws to cut through a chain. In fact I know she didn't do that.

    ^No Hamill is right Nokia.

    Here's the battle in full.
    [YT]bIM0m_rZxQ8[/YT]

    Her body did make some metal like devices they were just not as powerful as adamantium obviously. The fact that she turned into a statue-like humaniod should show she can make herself have a shell of inanimate object around her at least. Lets not forget she can constrict her body to become people who are taller than her and expand it to make herself taller as well.

    I never realised how close the FC make-up was to the original. It's really the colouring that ruined it.

    That being said however, I still much prefer the DOFP look, and not just because of the colour. Though it's a departure from the OT design, it needed reshaping for Lawrence's face and figure. She looked much better in DOFP, much more like Mystique, even though technically less accurate to what came before.

    Could do with more work in the future. I agree it was a little cheap looking. I thought the Beast make-up was a bit crappy too. The thing that bugged me most was Lawrence's exposed, coloured-in eye-brows. They were kind of green all the time lol
