New update for March 2017 and Logan:

Keeping the previous caveats saved me from having to include a bunch of very minor mutant kid characters on this. But I decided to grey out a few other minor characters that slipped past that filter with this and retroactively also with past films, including "Bobby" from Logan (very minor character, has one line, easy to confuse him with the other kids, and he has the same first name as Ice Man), Nina from Apocalypse (Magneto's kid. Not a major character), Angel Dust/Christine from Deadpool (more memorable character, but almost everyone gets her I think because there are already two other characters on the quiz named Angel), and Vanessa from Deadpool (it's hinted in the film that she is the mutant Copycat, but not confirmed, which is why I think most people missed her. I'll put her back on if she returns with powers in Deadpool 2).
+2
level 74

Update May 2018:

I've added all the new mutants from Deadpool 2 and updated the number of appearances of older mutants.
I left Vanessa as a filled-in answer because (spoiler alert?) she's still not identified as Copycat in this film.
I would have loved to have added Brad Pitt's portrayal of "Vanisher." But he never appeared on screen or said anything and was therefore disqualified.
Also... I assume the Yukio in Deadpool 2 is supposed to be based on the same comics character as the Yukio in The Wolverine. It's not really clear. They appear to have different powers; but that's not too strange as Deadpool and the other X-Men movies seem more to be in similar parallel universes than in the same universe. The comics character, different from the film character(s), was not a mutant and had no powers. Wikipedia identifies the character as being the same, so I counted them that way, as well.

Just saw Deadpool 2 again today, specifically to see if I could see the Pitt cameo, and I did. It's blink and you'll miss it, but its him... with a beard... being electrocuted. But you're right, he doesn't have any lines, so now that I think of it, my argument carries no weight... carry on.

Thanks, QM. Happy to help. Though I will never forgive you for allowing me to rewatch X-Men Origins and Apocalypse. ::shudder::

This quiz is meant to be comprehensive, so please point out any errors. However I did not want to include a bunch of mutants nobody has heard of before, or anyone that it would be impossible to guess just from watching the films, so I made as a baseline for inclusion the criteria that the character had to have been in at least one film where they were *both* named on screen, and delivered at least a single line.

This eliminated many characters I would have preferred to keep on (Callisto, who is never named, Sunspot, who utters no lines, Riptide, who does neither, etc) but I think it's better.

The only characters who fit this criteria but are still not on the quiz, I think are "Amy," the girl with different colored eyes from the beginning of First Class, whom I excluded because I assumed most people would not think of her as a "mutant" even though she is identified as one; Moira McTaggert, whose auburn hair leads Prof X to identify her as a mutant as well and whom I excluded for the same reason- mutants in this sense are only those who carry a manifest mutant "X gene"; Worm "Cunningham," because it's not clear if he is a mutant or not, in the films I think not; Senator Kelly, who began life as a human and was then artificially changed into a mutant so I decided he shouldn't count; and finally President John Kennedy, just because, that's silly. Also, we don't know what his mutant power was. Maybe seducing Marilyn Monroe? Obviously he's not bullet proof.

One note for you - take it for what it's worth. IMO, if the criteria for inclusion includes being named onscreen and uttering a line, then the number of appearances column should reflect the same criteria. The ones that jumped out as inconsistent with this were Apocalypse and Kitty Pryde (although there are surely more). Apocalypse didn't even appear onscreen in the post-credits scene of DOFP, let alone utter a line. And Kitty wasn't named during X-Men or X2 (when she was played by a different actress). Also pretty sure the scream in X2 doesn't really count as a line of dialog.

I'm perfectly aware of this... I sat and rewatched all of these movies last week so I've even got 3 pages of notes about which characters did what in every film.

To get on THIS quiz, they had to both speak a line AND be named in the SAME film. But... performing that feat once in a single film is enough to gain entry on the quiz, even if there are other films where they didn't do that.

On the other hand, to be counted as "appearing" in a film- that's different. They just had to appear. I didn't count photographs or names on a computer screen as an "appearance." I'm talking live actors on screen. I don't think this is particularly confusing or inconsistent. But I very much appreciate the feedback!

I *could* change the column header from "#" to "# of appearances"... that would make things more clear. But it would also make the quiz very ugly.

btw what do you mean he didn't appear onscreen in the post credits scene? He looked pretty apparent to me.

side note concerning latest update: I'm counting post-credits scenes that are integrated into the film as part of the film. When the music for the scene starts playing before the credits have finished rolling to me that means you haven't finished watching the whole movie yet. But I'm not including pre-movie scenes tacked on as an afterthought and not even distributed in all the same places. So... Deadpool did not appear in Logan.

I actually thought Apocalypse was worse than Last Stand. And I'm not the only one. Current RottenTomatoes scores for each stand at 48% and 58%, respectively. Origins is the lowest at 38%, and Days of Future Past is the highest at 90%.

btw, another quick note: John Wraith = Kestrel, Chris Bradley = Bolt, James Madrox = Multiple Man, Emma Frost = White Queen, Jean Grey = Marvel Girl. Whenever a character was referred to by their "mutant" name in the films, I used that name for the quiz. When their mutant names were never used on screen, I used their birth names. Only exceptions to this rule being Lady Deathstrike, who is only ever called Yuriko in X2 but I used her mutant name to avoid confusion with Yukio from The Wolverine, and Phoenix... because that's just confusing.

Both given and mutant names should be acceptable type-ins, and in most cases I accepted just first names because that's how most characters were referred to in the films. A few exceptions, including Sebastian Shaw (nobody ever called him simply Sebastian, mostly they called him "Shaw"), and James Madrox (again, nobody ever refers to him on screen simply as "James.") point being to make this possible to ace just by watching the movies.

No. This is based on the movies, not the comics.
Personally I felt this was a good decision. In a movie about mutants with special powers, when introducing a new character with special powers, why make him anything other than a mutant? Saves you a lot of time with the explanation and getting your powers from some magic crystal is silly anyway. But that's my personal opinion and it's irrelevant to the quiz, because the quiz is based on the movies.

Yukio is also not a mutant in the comics. And Anya Eisenhardt, the most likely inspiration for Nina Gorska, similarly displayed no mutant powers in the comics. Juggernaut is not the only departure from the source material.

yes, of course. 4th wall. My mistake. With the release of Deadpool 2 and the fact that there are other mutant movies with R ratings out there now, I decided to change the clue to this.

Also, he had that power to teleport in the Wolverine movie. Plus... Cyclops' optic blast... and katanas that came out of his forearms... and... at the beginning not sure what was going on there... superhuman sword skills? Chicks love guys with skills.

He's a mutant. Whether his mutation was induced or in-born and later enhanced and amplified, his still mutated. There are conflicting back stories even in these films.

Jan 25, 2017
Are you drawing a parallel with Senator Kelly and the rationale I gave for excluding him from the quiz? If so, decent point.

However, it's really confusing in the films how to categorize Deadpool. First of all, he has two completely contradictory backstories. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it seems like he is a mutant at first (with the power to... I don't know... be really really good at swinging swords? They didn't actually say), who is later enhanced by adding additional mutant powers. But he was a mutant all along anyway.
In the film Deadpool... they are ambiguous about what is going on in the Weapon X program where they take Wade. They inject him with something. Is that something supposed to alter his DNA? Or just serve as a catalyst to help his latent mutant powers manifest under stress? If the latter, he was already a mutant they just forced his powers to reveal themselves. But it's very unclear.
+1
level 58
Jun 10, 2018
In the first Deadpool I believe they were pretty clear that they were putting him under extreme stress to force his mutant powers to the surface. So, he already has the mutant powers, he's just never had the level of stress needed to activate them. Given the amount of stress it takes before they finally do, it makes sense they would appear naturally.

Then why is he with Stryker's black ops team at the beginning of X-Men Origins: Wolverine? And in the Deadpool movie why does Francis talk about any latent mutations revealing themselves? In both cases they make it seem like he already had the mutant X gene inside him, but something was done to trigger it or enhance it in some way.

He was in Days of Future Past but he never said a single word unless you count grunting and screaming... and therefore doesn't meet the criteria I made for inclusion on the quiz. I would have preferred to include him but if I had then I couldn't come up with any objective way to exclude a few dozen other mutants I preferred to keep off.

I think he is a character in the New Mutants movie scheduled for release in August 2019, though. If they give him any lines in that one I'll add him to the quiz.

Bone claws are part of his mutation. Adamantium was bonded to his skeleton as part of the Weapon X program. It has also been removed from his body (and added back in) at various times in various timelines. He always has bone claws. Sometimes his bone claws are coated in adamantium.

That said, this is ret-conning and if you hadn't read any comics since 1990 I wouldn't fault you for not knowing. Originally Wolverine always had adamantium claws and everyone just assumed (as it was probably intended) that that claws had been inserted into his body by the Weapon X program. Later on during the Fatal Attractions storyline Magneto ripped the metal out of Logan's body, very nearly killing him in the process. After he had recovered there was a scene where he popped his bone claws for the first time and everyone was shocked that he still had claws at all, including Wolverine who, due to his amnesia, hadn't remembered. But once this happened then it was established canon that the claws were part of his mutation.

Now I'm wondering which hurt me more: movies I haven't seen (Origins, The Wolverine, Deadpool 2--though in the case of DP2, that's "haven't seen YET") or movies I try not to remember (Last Stand, Apocalypse). Not being familiar with the comics doesn't do me any favors, either, despite this being based on the movies.

The four least-guessed answers are from Deadpool 2. So... I think not having seen a movie probably hurts more than trying to forget it, based on the results. :)
