Listener Questions Edit

  • Just how many kids does Mystique have (that we know of)?
  • What's the deal with Douglock? He was one of my favorites, but I heard he was retconned into being Warlock. That's kind of an awful thing to do! I like that Warlock and Cypher had sort of a son.
  • So, when Mystique takes on another mutant's form, she also apparently takes on their weapons (Wolverine's claws, Cyclops' optic blasts, etc.) So his kind of begs the question - why not just morph into Thanos, Dark Phoenix or some other overpowered entity?
