1588. Shapeshifter

Share this comic!

There’s some nice dialogue between Mystique and Nightcrawler in X2: X-Men United that this comic reminds me of.

For background, Mystique and Nightcrawler are mutants. They both have blue skin which makes a lot of people think they are weirdos. Mystique, however, is also a shapeshifter:

Nightcrawler: Excuse me. They say you can imitate anybody. Even their voice.
Mystique: Even their voice.
Nightcrawler: Then why not stay in disguise all the time? You know- look like everyone else?
Mystique: Because we shouldn’t have to.

Mystique is pretty great here!

If you like comics with shapeshifters, you should definitely read Nimona if you haven’t already.

Also apparently there is an X-Men comic? I don’t know if it is based on the movie or the video game or the collectible card game but what I do know is that at some point they made a comic with at least one shapeshifter in it.
