And thank heavens she did; her performance in Apocalypse made that film the modern classic it was!

speaking of mystique, x-men evolution is so ridiculous because it's like "you need to come to the xavier institute" but then the kids have to a normal high school where mystique is the principal and charles is just, like, totally ok with this?

Jennifer Lawrence is the worst Mystique, (part writing, part performance)(she's so clearly over it) but I would not expect an amazing cinematic Mystique even if the part was recast. So I say to you, JLaw: whatever, that's fine.

Started reading PAD's X-Factor. Some glaring mix-ups in the first few issues. M gets colored like Siryn and Layla randomly develops Rahne's Claremontccent. (Which briefly disappeared in the old new New Mutants series, but Peter David wanted it back)

Twitter's algorithm blessed me with this recently, too. Good.

Barely related to the X-Men, (not gonna search for the Marvel thread) I've been recently reminded that Black Bolt's full name is Blackagar Boltagon, which is flawless and inspirational.
