Silly Mystique makeup, how so?
She's naked. Even at the time of the first film, the justification for such was flimsy.
I actually kind of liked Magneto's reasoning regarding that in First Class: "Have you ever looked at a tiger and thought you ought to cover it up?"
It's very Magneto, if nothing else.
Oh, agreed. Plus, it gets you a blue naked chick to hang out with you.
It was much easier to shape shift a nude person than a clothed one in 2000.
Uh-huh. Suuuuure it was. Nothing to do with getting a model to play Mystique, or the average demographic of comic readers.
