One of the highlights of growing up in the 90's was watching X-Men. I loved it so much that I was really excited for the movies - which I loved. Though I was slightly disappointed by some of the mutants. So here is a little run down on some of the characters along with my opinion on them.
Professor X was perfect
Wolverine was also perfect
Storm in the cartoon was strong and badass, but in the movies she just seemed kinda... meh
Beast was perfect. Despite there being continuity errors. In X-Men: First Class we see Hank McCoy change into Beast as a teenager, but in the X-men 2 you can clearly see a normal Hank McCoy talking on the tv aged 30+
Like Storm, he was good but not as badass as the cartoon version
Pfft Gambit sucked in the movies compared to how cool he was in the cartoon
Nightcrawler was perfect
And so was Jean Grey, though I found the movie version ever so slightly annoying
Phoenix was horrible. I can't remember too much about her in the cartoon but I do remember feeling sorry for her. I plain hated the movie version.
Magneto was perfect
And so was Mystique, though I think the movie version was better
And finally Rogue. My all-time favourite from the cartoon. I just thought she was sassy and cool so guess how disappointed I was by the movie version. Ugh. She's just so pathetic and doesn't have the same powers. Though I was told that Rogue gains super strength and flight later on so I'm hoping that if they make anymore movies then she'll develop them. Hopefully they'll make her have a relationship with Gambit too or is that asking too much?
