i get what your saying about them being a hero and seeing more of the character..its just a shame they dont make more villan books...thats why i liked dakens book so much. it was nice to see a characters journey that wasant acting like a good boy with morals....i find it exciting to read about what a villan is thinking in there mind as apposed to a hero. i find because we are not use to it, we seem to get alot more suprises. people seem to always wait for a character to go through the transisition from bad guy to good guy...but with daken it never happened, so u learn to expect the unexpected...
It would be great to see more villian books which have charactrs like Daken. Except Marvel either refuses to do them imo or they do not sell well enough. Mystique did have a short lived series of her own and I recommend you pick it. As Marvel has rereleased the entire series in two trades. I also agree that it's interesting to read a comic when you can see the mind of a supervillian as you are right it can be full of suprises and more interesting then the usual sort of comic. My only problem is that when they take a character like Mystique make her go through the transistion from bad guy to good guy they waste so many story arcs and issues to do so only to toss all that character build up aside. For me either you keep the charactr as a supervilian or you don't. Don't waste the time of trying to make him a hero to toss it aside. In Mystique case it was done so poorly recently. In a comic involving the X-men and the whole attempt at Marvel trying to be mysterious with "one will betray them' type of scthick and it turns out to be Mystique well a deaf, dumb, and blind person could have seen that cominc from across the other side of th galaxy. Still who knows. The character imo has been used so pporly in the last couple of years that Marvel might still have a surprise or two.
as far as mystique goes, she needs to get right away from rogue and start using her deception skills the way they were intended. i like her at partnership with sabertooth. i think shes a little lost on her own just because marvel have her fighting a never ending battle with rogue, and it seems to be wearing down the value of the character...i like when she knows where shes headed, not mhen shes floating around like a guilty mother....
While I agree that she needs to get away from both rogue and Nightcrawler and do her own thing it seems the writers seem dead set on using her as the crazy nutjob who wants to harm and possibly kill the X-men while wanting both characters to love her as a mother and can't understand why they don't. If they insist on portraying the character as a guilty mother then stop writing the character as doing everything and anything possible to keep both children away from her. That angle along with the whole insanity angle is just not interesting anymore imo. After 10=years of the character being written as being insane and in a carttony and stereotypical way it just boring and stale. It takes away from the characer. As for the partnership with Sabertooth not sure if I like it yet but I can see it adding interesting possibilites to the character.
as for her and logan he dosnt even have time to scratch his ass at the moment led alone put up with mystique as a girlfriend
Seconded. As muh as I like Wolverine as a character and would like to see both characters romantically involved Marvel is overusing the character so much that it's a wonder that he can be in so many comics at once. Stillonce again who knows. After all Mystique did sleep with Wolverine recently so who knows where that may lead.
I figured this character would be more popular imo. With the success of X-men first class and an overall generally interesting character you figure that more of the fanbase would be commenting in this thread, Considering how often she comes up in favorite "x-men, x-woman, x-villian" threads on the boards
