She can hide in plain sight! That’s a defining feature of Mystique, a.k.a Raven Darkholme. She’s a much loved character, and “frenemy” of the X Men. What makes the character so interesting is her complex attitudes. She rarely wholly on one side or another. Perhaps that could feature heavily if we ever do actually get one of these five X Men big-screen comic-book storyline adaptations we’d love to see.

 

Plain Sight

 

Mystique can turn

so easily;

the lesson don’t

trust all you see

 

Her own blue skin

hides in plain sight;

her other skill —

she can’t half fight!

 

She fight X-Men,

and then she’s gone

But has she stayed

and is she one?

 

Her real self

she masks so well

But life this way

is living hell!

 

You’d never know

she’s in disguise

unless you see

her yellow eyes!

One thing that’s likely is we’ll see Mystique again, in the MCU. Our feature about a potential “Foxverse” discusses certain X-Men characters. Whether that will be Jennifer Lawrence, or indeed even Rebecca Romijn, we’ll have to wait to see. Or, it may be a new person playing the role. Either way, it will be great to hopefully see Mystique back on the big screen. See you next Friday, readers!
