It depends on what you mean by her "natural" form. As far as we can tell, the blue spiky look is Mystique's "normal" appearance as a mutant; every other form is something she has to intentionally affect. (We see this, for example, when she is knocked out and her shapeshifting ends, this is the form she takes.) However, it seems likely that her "usual" ...

Because when he travels back to the 1970s, he's not physically travelling in time, he's being mentally projected into his former self and in 1973 he didn't have an adamantium skeleton yet. You can see from the image below (immediately after he gets out of bed) that his claws are just bone. His weight would therefore be around 175lbs not the 300lbs he weighs ...

The character of Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver is an adaptation of Comic book character Pietro Maximoff. From the Marvel comics storyline, Quicksilver is the son of Magneto (Eric Lehnserr) and Magda. He is the twin brother of Scarlett Witch. There are lot of differences between the Marvel comics X-Men storyline and the X-Men movies. In the book, X-Factor ...

At the end of X-Men: The Last Stand, we see the comatosed, brain dead twin of Charles Xavier talking in Patrick Stewarts voice, implying that he somehow transferred his consciousness into his twins body, which is one theory. for how Charles Xavier is alive in the dark timeline of Days of Future Past. However, I have a (currently unprovable, thanks to lack ...

As we can see in the movie in this special scene, He is moving so fast that time seems stopped for "normal" people. No, time hasn't slowed or stopped for the "normal" people...at all. We're seeing the scene from HIS viewpoint at that stage. To HIM they are standing still, but in actuality, he's just moving really fast. Since there is no actual time-...

Wolverine will still likely end up with an adamantium skeleton. There is simply too much time between when he is recovered and when we see him in the future for such a continuity gap to occur. The movie's creators went through a great deal of trouble to correct previous "editorial choices" i.e. the deaths of Xavier and Jean Grey to allow Wolverine to go ...

Yes, JFK was a mutant. Writer Simon Kinberg discussed this with Empire Magazine. “The notion was that Trask was a little bit involved in the assassination of JFK. I’m just telling you back story, it’s not in the movie, but Trask identified that JFK was a mutant, and then the people that wanted JFK killed for all their political reasons, whoever it ...

Spoiler alert After watching the film, For those of you wanting the answer but with less spoilers (spoiler tag anyway)

In the film, the simplest answer is that Pryde's mutant ability is relatively uncommon. Additionally it requires Wolverine's mutant ability (itself incredibly rare) in order to allow time travel to take place over more than a few days span. When you combine rare with rare, you get ultra-rare. Pryde : I can send someone back a couple of weeks...maybe a ...

SPECULATION BASED ON OBSERVATIONS Pietro Maximoff, in the canon Marvel Earth-616 continuity, was unable to "share" his speed with other beings or objects of a mechanical or computerized nature. One of his pet peeves in the Earth-616 continuity is the slowness of everything used by humans. In Days of Future Past: The scene in the movie where he plays ping-...

Within context of the X-Men movie universe, this is never fully explained. In the comics, she has yet to ever exhibit this ability, but it is conceivable that she could in the future. In the comics, some mutants have undergone secondary mutations, later in life. These secondary mutations bring additional abilities which are not necessarily just logical ...

There are a few things to point out that are probably not going to be explained but here goes. First of all all the movies up to this point prior to Days of Future Past are in one timeline. There is no "other universe" in my opinion as the other person theorized. There are a few reasons for this, one thing that was explained as the fact that Trask was ...

The color is off in the 3D version. It is indeed Mystique rescuing Logan by pretending to be Stryker.

I think you are confused about Xavier's powers. They never said in the movie that Xavier's powers would protect him during the trip. He actually wouldn't survive the trip, his mind wouldn't take it: Pryde: I can send someone back a couple of weeks...maybe a month but you're talking about going back decades. You have the most powerful brain in the world ...

According to an IMDb trivia item, the producer, Simon Kinberg, confirmed his identity: According to Simon Kinberg, the mutant scavenger is Nate Grey, the X-Man. IMDb is a bit unreliable though, and I’ve been unable to find the interview with Kinberg where he said this. (Plenty of sites have repeated it verbatim though.) In the comics, Grey is the ...

En Sabah Nur is the real/birth name of the mutant known as Apocalypse. He is one of the X-Men's most formidable foes, being able to reconstruct himself at the molecular level, and employing henchmen (the most famous being Mr Sinister, and The Four Horsemen, which has included members of the X-Men at points in time) to do much of his dirty work. In addition ...

There is no answer for this question... All that we can do is speculate... The only thing we know for sure is that the timelines divert as evidenced by this graphic of the timeline.

In the scene where Magneto infiltrates metal into the bodies of each of the sentinels, there's a "blink and you'll miss it" animation where the metal invades the CPU of the robot, activating it and (presumably) allowing Magneto to take control of it. Quite how he reprograms them isn't described in detail but as the old adage goes, there's no access like ...

I would not make the assumption that they have created the alternate timelines that you are implying they have. Quotes from Wikipedia For the movie X2 Sentinels and the Danger Room were set to appear before being deleted because of budget concerns. And Days X-Men: Days of Future Past is a 2014 superhero film, based on the fictional X-Men ...

Mystique can just change appearance, not copy powers ... right? As far as has been shown, yes, that is correct. At least, mostly. So why would study of her mutant genes allow for the abilities of the future Sentinels? There were two massive improvements shown: The seeming ability to change power sets (more on this in a bit) The ability to change their ...

Simple answer: He doesn't have his Adamantium skeleton yet. This is seen in the next scene where he draws his claws to fight those mobsters and finds to his own dismay that he has plain bone claws, and not the Adamantium ones. Furthermore, William Stryker is a youngster here. He isn't the same General Stryker who gave Wolverine his "gift". So he couldn't ...

IMDB Trivia indicates that he's Nate Grey (Scott and Jean's son) however I've not been able to locate the source of this piece of trivia, nor is there any explanation how this occurred, given that she died in the prior film. According to Simon Kinberg, the mutant scavenger is Nate Grey, the X-Man. At the very least, we can strongly assume that he's a ...

"Stryker's" eyes clearly flash yellow - the same as Mystique's in previous films, and even Days of Future Past. In this interview, Simon Kinberg 100% confirms that it is Mystique impersonating Stryker. Stryker is a character that keeps reappearing in the franchise, perhaps because he’s one of the only identifiable bad guys the X-Men have encountered. And ...

He was selling weapons to enemies of the US. Earlier in the film, we see Trask trying to sell the Sentinels to communist leaders, after he was turned down by the US military. This is the meeting where Mystique attempts to assassinate him. Days of Future Past takes place just after the Cuban missile crisis (seen in First Class), and the US aren’t ...

The film's writer, Simon Kinsberg addressed this point in a podcast interview for Empire Magazine (39:24) "When asked why the X-Men didn’t take Quicksilver to Paris with them, Kinberg answered, “I love that people are asking this question, because I think it comes from people loving Evan Peters in the film. It was just a story decision. They go to ...

He remembers everything that happened from the day that he was sent back to in 1973 until he fell into the water and his mind traveled back into the future. He does not remember anything after Day of Future Past 1973 events because his mind traveled back into the future. So you can't remember things that you did not experience. For example: supposing you ...

Marvel has not given a canon explanation why Quicksilver does not create sonic booms when he moves faster than sound. SPECULATION BASED ON OBSERVATIONS Canon Continuity Earth-616 Quicksilver, Pietro Maximoff was a mutant and the son of the near-Omega class mutant, Magneto. He is also the brother of the mutant sorceress, the Scarlet Witch. His x-gene ...

Old Xavier did use his power in the movie: He communicated with his younger self through Logans consciousness (the scene where young X searched Logans mind to find "himself") He seems to know that Logan is close to archiving the goal, he is saying something along the lines of "He is close, he needs just a little more time" when the attack starts outside. ...

The epilogue ending of X-Men: The Last Stand depicts Erik playing chess and realizing that he can move the piece just slightly with his powers. The cure is clearly not as final or effective as everyone had been led to believe, and his powers had begun to return.

Unless I'm mistaken, the full text of the Bent Bullet Report appears to be archived on the Marvel Movies Fandom site. Excerpt: The Bent Bullet BY HARPER SIMMONS The eyes of John F.
