Ok...It been a while since I knocked a character off the hit list so let's remedy that by doing a tribute to the X-men bad girl Mystique. Being a shapeshifter it makes sense that Mystique would have a lot of different appearances. Let's try to cover as many of them as we can. ^_^
Comics and Fanart
Mystique got her own comic series in 2003. It ran for 24 issues. One of the great things about the series is that it gives her a chance to shine by herself. Most of the time you tend to see Mystique take on the role of a henchwoman. While she's a definitely a capable henchwoman (being the right hand of villains like Magneto and Apocalype), we don't get a chance to see her intelligence in action. In her series comic series she really puts it to use becoming a badass superspy. In addition to that you get to see a more playful side of her as well.
The series also has some really excellent cover artwork produced by Artist Greg Horn.
In addition to having shape shifting as her mutant power, Mystique has some really badass Martial Arts skills under her belt. Combined with super human agility...it makes for a very nasty combination as shown below.
Professor X recruited Mystique for a short period of time to work on mercenary missions. During that time he assigned a telepath named Shortstack to work with her as her handler. Shortstack's mutation caused him to shrink to about a foot tall which provided us with some nice GTS panels. ^_^
Mystique's claim to fame is her shapeshifting skills. A lot of times she'll use her transformations to get close to her target and then pounce. That's part of the reason she can be really dangerous.
Taking on Wolverine
During a storyline called Messiah complex, Mystique betrays the X-men leading into a storyline where Wolverine hunts her down and the two wind up facing off against each other. It's a pretty good storyline to read provided you just go along with the action and don't analyze things too seriously. Both characters have some great moments in it.
No villainess in the X-men series can be quite as seductive as Mystique. :-)
Heh heh Mystique being always naked is definitely something to think about. :-D
Rebecca Romijn played Mystique in the First 3 X-men films. As the character she give one of the best foot beating scenes that I've ever scene in a Live Action movie.
Man I really envy the lucky actor who played Senator Kelley.
I tossed in some barefoot pictures of Mystique's actresses too. :-D
In some of the the behind the scenes material. They show the Make up process Rebecca goes through to get into the character. It takes roughly 6 hours of make up and body painting to prepare her for the role. ^_^; I love to be the one who applies the make up to her feet. :-)
More recently Jennifer Lawrence has gotten a lot of attention for the Silver Linings Playbook and the Hunger games but one her first big roles involved her playing the blue skinned shapeshifter in X-men First Class. In interviews Lawrence points out that she was lucky enough not having to be in full body makeup for most of her scenes but we do get a couple of closeups on her character's bare feet towards the beginning of the film.
There is a chance that I'll probably be posting Jennifer Lawrence on this site again in the future because she is so hot. Maybe I'll do a tribute for Katniss Everdeen. :-)
So basically there are 3 animated incarnations of the character that I am aware of. Her 90's X-men the animated series counterpart, her X-men Evolution counterpart and her Wolverine and the X-men counterpart. the latter is the only one that has some brief barefoot moments that I know about.
Mystique's appearance doesn't change too much throughout the various animated shows. That said I think that her 90's animation form looks the best. Admittedly this might be because it was the first version of her I was introduced to but I also think that it was better drawn. ^_^
(Ok...these are a combination of webfinds and caps from different mediums of entertainment. Some of the caps sources include the first X-men film and X-men First Class as well as the Wolverine and the X-men episode Stolen Lives. The behind the scenes caps came from this Youtube clip here. I'd also like to dedicate this bonus to Kyle Jordan and the Author Money $ign for inspiring it)
I think that Mystique is probably the first shapeshifter that I posted (not counting sorceresses whose magic allows them to use that ability). Taking into account that her original form has an exotic sort of hotness to it as well, I think that it would be pretty cool to have her as a girlfriend. She could basically fulfill any fantasy that you wanted making for some excellent roleplay games. The downside is that like Wolverine you'd have to worry about when she'll inevitably stab you in the back but it would be fun to be at her feet while it lasts.
Alright let's see... Comic book character, mega post, friday, fact that I put it in the title of this post ;-) ...can you guess what's coming next? Yup...
