X-Men franchise has introduced a number of different mutant line-ups over the years. Some good, some bad. Many of them managed to become fan favorites like Charles Xavier and Wolverine. But not everyone got the positive treatment. However, not all of them were received well. Sometimes it is because the heroes or villains are more underutilized than their comic counterparts. Though it is impossible to build every character the way they are in comic books. But the X-men franchise has been a little disappointing in the way it adopted some of the mutants. Scroll down to find out some of the Mutants that were portrayed wrong in the X-Men movies.
In the first film, Cyclops played an important role as the team leader. But in an attempt to spotlight Wolverine, the upcoming movies diminished his importance. Until eventually he was killed off. X-Men: Days of the Future Past did try to remedy the mistake but it did not make it up. He had been presented as someone with a not so likable person.
The movie counterpart of the White Queen is nowhere close to the comic book character. Emma Frost in the movie X-Men: First Class is just portrayed to be someone who is nothing but a tool to seduce young men. An underling to Sebastian Shaw. The only resemblance between the movie and comic book Emma Frost is their white costume.
In the comics, Juggernaut is the stepbrother of Charles Xavier. He was mysteriously transformed into the unstoppable Juggernaut by the Gem of Cyttorak. He is one of the greatest foes of X-Men. But in the movie, X-Men: The Last Stand, he is presented as a recruit of Magneto, who just smashes into things. He is not even close to the Juggernaut in the comics.
Before the release of X-Men: The Last Stand, Angel was shown as one of the main characters of the movie. The comic book fans were excited to see him. But when the movie came out he was seen escaping being cured by his father, reaching the mansion of Professor X, and saving his father. That was it. It was nothing like the comic book counterpart. But the future movies have attempted to fix it.
Though in the movie it was fun to watch Toad, he bore little to no resemblance to the Toad in the comics. His personality was different and had quite a few lines in the entire movie. Like any other henchman of Magneto, he was only an obstacle on the way for the team. Even in X-Men: Days of the Future Past, he only was seen in one scene.
