Mystique’s next child was Nightcrawler, a result of her secret affair with Azazel. Nightcrawler was also rejected by humans because of his physical appearance.  Mystique later adopted Rogue as her own child when Rogue ran away from home at a early age. Rogue and Nightcrawler later grew up to be apart of the X-Men, battling their own mother in different events…

Mystique was featured in X-Men 1, 2, 3, First Class, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse. The design created for Mystique has changed from the comic book when introduced to the big screen. The smooth blue skinned, white appareled female was replaced with a naked reptilian skinned mutant. This gave Mystique a more abnormal look, putting more emphasis on her mutation. Did the change hurt Mystique’s character profile or did movie producers make an excellent choice?
