Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Bio

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. Created by artist David Cockrum and writer Chris Claremont, she first appeared in the comic book Ms. Marvel #16, published in 1978.

Mystique is a member of a subspecies of humanity known as mutants, who are born with superhuman abilities. Mystique is a shapeshifter who can mimic the appearance and voice of any person with exquisite precision, and her natural appearance includes blue skin and yellow eyes. She is typically portrayed as a foe of the X-Men.

Throughout most of her history, Mystique has been a supervillain, founding her own Brotherhood of Mutants and assassinating several important people involved in mutant affairs.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Age

Mystique’s exact age remains unknown. Her earliest meeting with her lover, Destiny (Irene Adler), occurred around “the dawn of the 20th century”. She has commented that she is over 100 years old.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Partner/Relationship

Mystique is one of the few bisexual characters in comics, having had a long relationship with Irene Adler, otherwise known as Destiny. Mystique initially met Destiny when she was hired to help her decipher her dreams and stop the worst of them from coming to pass. The two of them would eventually become life-long lovers.

When Mystique was involved with Destiny the two of them actively tried to thwart Destiny’s negative precognitive dreams from actually occurring. The relationship lasted decades, ending when Destiny was killed. Mystique has also been the mother of at least three children. She is the biological mother of both Nightcrawler and Graydon Creed, whose father was the mutant Sabretooth.

In the 1920s, Mystique encountered the Canadian mutant Wolverine when he joined her gang of mutant pick-pockets. This meeting was possibly orchestrated by Weapon X. The two became lovers. Wolverine did not act when Mystique let their friends die when the situation turned sour, though he was extremely remorseful. As they ran away, Mystique pushed Wolverine out of the train they were escaping on because she did not trust him.

At one point in her life, circumstances led Mystique to an important figure in Wolverine’s past, Victor Creed. When the two initially met, Mystique was in the guise of Leni Zauber. Both Leni and Victor had been assigned to kill a scientist in Berlin. Although, Mystique was the one who ultimately killed the scientist, the two of them still needed to maintain a low profile and opted to stay in the same safe house.

It was here that they first became lovers until Mystique faked her death so that she could leave Sabretooth without objection. During their time together, unbeknownst to Sabretooth, they conceived a child. Mystique immediately gave the child up for adoption, although she still kept track of him until he hit adolescence when it became apparent that he was not a mutant.

Later on, in Mystique’s life, she had a son named Kurt Wagner with the ancient biblical mutant named Azazel. By this time, Mystique was calling herself Raven Darkholme, possibly her actual name. During this time Raven was married to Christian Wagner and the two of them were happily married until she learned of Christian’s infertility. She then used her powers to have sex with a number of partners as she desperately wanted another child.

That is when she met Azazel, who told her of the islands he ruled off the coast of Bermuda, and that he was the father of many mutants who was called Neyaphem.

Raven married Christian Wagner. She killed his father when he tried to reveal her illegitimate and unborn mutant son Kurt. Wagner discovered that she was pregnant, although Wagner became immediately suspicious. Pressured to have her son, Kurt, blood-tested, Raven killed her father-in-law and buried him. She then gave birth to a baby with black hair, yellow eyes, blue skin, and a pointed tail after reverting to her true form due to the stress of the birth.

The villagers thought that both the mother and child were demons and they quickly attempted to kill them. Raven soon threw her newborn son into a river before changing her form to that of a local villager so that she could escape alive.

It is later revealed that, either through Destiny’s precognitive powers or through the government contacts she eventually cultivates, Mystique keeps tabs on Kurt Wagner’s whereabouts; she reveals in her first encounter with Nightcrawler that his foster mother, Margali Szardos, is aware of her.

Distraught over what she had done, Mystique wandered the world for some time During this time, she met the mutant Destiny and became both friends and lovers with her. Destiny, who was precognitive, told Raven it would be best for her to adopt a certain child named Anna Marie (who would later grow up to become the X-Man known as Rogue).

Wanting to make up for abandoning Graydon and Kurt, Mystique eagerly agreed. Mystique genuinely cared for Anna and raised her like the child she had lost. Although initially distrustful, Raven gained the young girl’s trust, creating a family with her and Destiny for nearly a decade. Unfortunately, Destiny aged at the rate of a normal human, while Mystique’s powers allowed her to retain her youthful body.

While still raising Anna Marie, Raven had concealed her mutant abilities so well that she was able to work for the United States Civil Service and eventually worked her way up to the trusted position of Deputy Director of the Defense Advanced Research Planning Agency (DARPA) in the United States Department of Defense, giving her access to military secrets and advanced weaponry, both of which she used for her own criminal and subversive purposes.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme)

In order to help further her terrorist activities, Raven organized a group called the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, whose members consisted of Avalanche, the Blob, Destiny, and Pyro.

After training Anna in the use of her powers, Mystique gave her the codename, Rogue, and allowed her to join the Brotherhood. With Rogue on their team, the Brotherhood successfully defeated the Avengers.

However, during their battle, Rogue attempted to use her absorption power on Ms. Marvel. Unfortunately, Ms. Marvel did not go down easily, and Rogue was forced to absorb her psyche and powers permanently.

This caused Rogue to feel as if she was going insane since Ms. Marvel’s persona often attempted to gain control of Rogue’s mind.

Though Rogue remained with the Brotherhood in subsequent encounters with the X-Men, the Dazzler, and an ill-conceived attempt to recruit Hybrid, the mutant child of a human and a Dire Wraith, Rogue eventually abandoned her pseudo-family in order to join Charles Xavier in hopes that he could help where her mother could not.

Unfortunately, Mystique believed that Xavier had brainwashed her daughter and she attempted to liberate Rogue from the X-Men’s control. This rescue mission was short-lived after Rogue told Mystique that she believed Xavier was the only person in the world who could help her control her powers.

Reluctantly, Raven left Rogue with the X-Men, although she still continued to check in on her from time to time. Over the years, however, Mystique began to resent Xavier and the X-Men, believing that they had stolen one of the few special people in her life.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Children

Mystique is the mother of the villain Graydon Creed, the X-Men hero Nightcrawler, and adoptive mother of the heroine Rogue. She is forced to abandon Nightcrawler but raises Rogue for a number of years, and the two women have mixed feelings towards each other.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Son

Ironically, Graydon Creed turned out to be just a normal human and became the mutant-hating leader of the racist group known as the Friends of Humanity. He was eventually assassinated by Mystique herself.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Powers and Abilities

Mystique is a mutant shapeshifter with the ability to psionically shift the formation of her biological cells at will to change her appearance and thereby assume the form of other humans and animals. She can also alter her voice to duplicate exactly that of another person.

Originally, it was clearly stated that Mystique’s powers were limited to appearances only; she could not assume the powers of the people she morphed into or alter her body to adapt to different situations. Additionally, she could not change her overall body mass when taking on the appearance of a person larger or smaller, but due to subsequent enhancements, she has stated that her body mass is not fixed and can change when she does.

Her body is not limited to purely organic appearances: She also has the ability to create the appearance of clothes and other materials out of her own body, including items such as glasses, zippers, identity cards, handbags, and even test tubes. Mystique is shown in at least one instance transforming a metallic part of her costume into a functioning blaster pistol. Whether this is a function of her powers or the costume piece itself, is unclear.

As a shape-shifter, Mystique is able to constantly alter and rejuvenate her body’s cells and thereby retain her youthful appearance despite being alive for over one hundred years.

Mystique received her first power enhancement in the X-Men Forever miniseries, in which she was exposed to dangerous levels of radiation in order to save the life of Toad. The process boosted her powers so that she can now morph her body into taking certain desired physical traits depending on her situation at the time. Examples of these new abilities include night vision, wings on her back, talons in her fingers and natural body armor.

She can compress into nearly two-dimensional like a sheet of paper to glide on air currents, similar to Mister Fantastic, which she uses to survive an explosion. She has moved her vital organs out of place in order to survive gunshots to her torso and head and can make herself virtually invisible via camouflage.

She has even, with strain, given herself two heads and four arms to facilitate a gunfight on two fronts, as well as shapeshifted into herself as a small child. She is also now able to hold a shape when knocked unconscious and can conceal items in shapeshifted pouches under her skin.

Following her death and resurrection by the Hand, her powers have been further enhanced. She can now alter and conceal her scent from those with enhanced senses and is capable of changing her shape to a greater degree, including altering her limbs to form tentacles and bladed weapons, and compressing herself into a dog.

Damage to her biological tissue is known to heal at a relatively fast rate and she can form a resistance to poisons upon contacting them. Her enhancements have allowed her to rapidly regrow severed limbs and rapidly recover from near-fatal injury. Her powers grant her immunity to diseases, enhanced agility and strength, and agelessness.

Mystique is a cunning strategist in terrorist and commando operations, and adept at martial arts and information technology. She has a talent for finding, stealing, and understanding cutting edge weaponry. She is a talented actress and a polyglot, being fluent in over fourteen languages.

Her mind is naturally unreadable owing to changing grey matter and she wears devices to prevent telepathic intrusion. Furthermore, with over a century’s experience in posing as other people, she has picked up the unusual skill of being able to identify people posing as others based on body language and changes in behavioral cues.

Having been alive for at least a century, Mystique has built up considerable resources, one of her aliases being the billionaire B Byron Biggs who owns a number of safe houses around the world which are often protected by sophisticated security systems.

She also controls a variety of weaponry and gadgets, including the Changeling, a highly advanced stealth ship capable of cloaking and flying at very high speed. The ship had sophisticated weapons and surveillance systems, with an on-board analysis computer and power-suppressing containment cells.

Mystique (Raven Darkholme) Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique Wants to Change Name to X-Women in New Dark Phoenix TV Spot

It’s been nearly 20 years, but the X-Men franchise is finally coming to a close in cinemas with the release of Dark Phoenix. And much like in the field of comic books, the X-Men helped put superhero on the map in movie theaters. And in both the comic books and in the movies, some of the most popular characters in the franchise are the women such as Storm, Jean Grey, Mystique, Kitty Pryde, and many more.

Dark Phoenix seems to be giving these characters the spotlight, as evidenced by this new clip in which Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme / Mystique lobbies to change the name of her team. Check it out in the video player above!

Many of the female members of the X-Men have been beloved by comic fans ever since the franchise first launched. From Jean Grey to Storm to Scarlet Witch to Polaris to Psylocke to Dazzler to Rogue to Kitty Pryde to Jubilee to Emma Frost to Magik to Domino to Dani Moonstar to Armor to Pixie to X-23 and beyond, the X-Women have always been strong and dominant.

So it’s not exactly a terrible request for the ladies to get some recognition in the team name.

Dark Phoenix will be the end of the current run of the franchise, but some fans are still holding out hope that the cast will continue to play a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But actor Tye Sheridan told ComicBook.com that he’s unsure of their future beyond this film.

“There weren’t any talks with us,” the Cyclops actor told us. “I don’t know if there’s been an internal conversation… I don’t know. I think this franchise has a lot of potentials, it always has. I’d love to see it continue in some form, even if there spin-offs and characters do their own movies independently. I think it’s definitely something that should be explored.”

And while some fans might think that Marvel Studios has already figured it out, the ink has only just dried on the Disney/Fox deal that made all of this a possibility. Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg explained that he’s not sure what the future holds either.

“The easy answer is, no, I don’t know the answer,” Kinberg told ComicBook.com. “And I don’t know that Marvel or Disney knows the answer yet either. I think everybody is still figuring it out.”
