Yeah, Jen and Michael's version does bring an element to Mystique and Magneto that wasn't there in the comics. Ironically, the Age of Apocalypse storyline set in an alternate universe had Magneto romantically involved with Rogue, and in the regular X-Men comic timeline, Mystique is Rogue's mother.

Rogue's adopted mother.

Magneto was also briefly involved with Rogue in the the early 90s X-Men comics set in the main timeline. Plus his clone Joseph was in a love triangle with Rogue and Gambit in the later '90s.

Things that have been done in the comics, don't always take place in the movies.

Yes, I know. It all depends on the individual filmmakers. I do wish the movies would stay closer to the comics because I've seen how discrepancies between the two can lead to confusion and division among fans, as well as affect the legacies of the characters.

Wow, I didn't know that, sum1. Thanks.

What makes them good. It's not 100% like the comics.

Just as there are stories in the comics that are caliber, there are tales in the movies. Because Magneto and Mystique didn't occur in the comics, (when Jen and Michael bring a strong element on screen) doesn't mean the movie version has no merit. Seriously.

I don't need them to be 100% like the comics, Kip. But maybe 80%? Too much deviation defeats the purpose in my opinion. However, I don't see how a Magneto/Mystique connection screws up the continuity too badly.

Lots of good can come from being different.

Plenty of Marvel movies are different.

Different is fine, but not too different. I don't want characters to lose their rightful place in cinematic history because some director took artistic license, you know?

There are some who don't read comics. So movie versions are all they know.

Yes, I know, Kip. But when it comes to X-Men movies killing off Cyclops or the MCU making Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne old people who were never in the Avengers and making Tony Stark Ultron's creator, etc., I think it's disingenuous to misrepresent these characters and not do them justice. Minor differences are okay as long as they don't harm the characters or their legacies. Showing the characters respect is all I ask.

I know, Kiane. All I ask is that the movies accommodate both comic fans and non-fans. It can't be that hard. And I have no issue with the Magneto/Mystique thing because it doesn't affect the canon that much, if at all.

Seems more take issue with X-Men than anything else in the MCEU.

mainly Mystique being a "good guy"
