X-Men - The Ladies

So after posting my little post about the X-Men 3 film, and then going off in a Storm tangent, I have been thinking about the ladies of X-Men and how when thinking of a spin off movie for the franchise, they never go to the women. Am I the only one who would love to see these ladies in action?


Not the Anne Paquin version, but the version where she is a kick ass girl who can control her powers.
Not only can she drain people of thier power/life, she can also use it to heal herelf, and also take on other mutants characteristics for days, sometimes weeks on end. This could cause her to be temporarily unstoppable.
As long as she used her powers for good - does she go to the dark side?


She has not made the films yet, but since I am all for ethnic diversity, why could we not have a Chinese American mutant?
SHe is able to generate blinding and explosive energy "fireworks" that can do a lot of damage.
When she first comes into the X-Men she is very close with Wolverine, they have a father daughter relationship until she leaves for L.A. to pursue an acting career. Unfortunately she is cast in nothing but stereotypical Asian roles.
I totally smell an indie action/comedy.

Shadow Cat

Or Kitty Pride as she is better known. Well she can walk through solid objects. Kitty also shares a sort of mental or empathic connection with Lockheed (her pet dragon); both she and the alien dragon can 'sense' each other's presence at times.
Besides her mutant powers, Kitty is a genius in the field of applied technology and computer science. Shadowcat is highly talented in the design and use of computer hardware.
I sense a high tension weapons thriller, with cute dragon side-kick.

Lady Deathstrike

Yuriko Oyama deserved a bigger part, and why not her own film.
Like Wolverine she was virtually indestructible, so why killed off so easily?
Perhaps bring her back as the ultimate villain for Wolverine. People seem to think because she is a women he can defeat her.
She has many interesting stories (romance with Wolverine, turned into a cyborg, working with terrorists)
Give her a star billing.

Scarlet Witch

She has the ability to alter probability; making the highly improbable more likely possible.
I smell a Vegas trip!
In the Ultimate X-Men comics she is the daughter of Magneto and the sister of Quicksilver.
Such a family to be apart of, especially since she goes to Xavier to be part of the 'good'.
Perhaps an 'In the Bedroom' style film with super powers!

Phoenix/Jean Gray

I mean she is the most powerful mutant ever, yet Wolverine can kill her?
What gives.
She need a film that centres on her and her internal struggle with keeping Phoenix at bay.
And epic all out disaster movie where she completely destroys mankind to save the world.
A sort of ecological story with mass murder.


Need I really say anything or go into why she needs her own film
