    X-Men Confirms Mystique’s Transition To More Than An Omega-Level Mutant

    The X-Men have long been a metaphor for the struggles for social justice who find themselves marginalized in their communities. Often breaking the boundaries, the X-Men have constantly proved themselves when put in any given situation. One of the well-known X-Men is the supervillain and an antiheroine Mystique.

    Created by Chris Claremont and Jim Monney, Mystique first appeared in ‘Ms. Marvel #18‘ as the leader of the new Brotherhood of Mutants. She has been a devoted wife to Destiny, and they became the first queer couple to make X-Men history. However, Mystique’s shape-shifting abilities and other powers might just make her a god.

The comic further delves into Doctor Nemesis emphasizing Mystique’s control over her entire cellular and genetic structure is completely instinctive and the only thing holding her back from her true Omega status is her inability to copy other X-Genes.

    Here Is How Mystique Achieved Mutant Godhood


    Throughout the comic, Mystique’s shapeshifting abilities have made her the most powerful figure in the history of X-Men. However, she is intended to possess god-like control over her body. Doctor Nemesis revealed that the one barrier keeping her from true Omega status is that she has thus far appeared incapable of mimicking the X-Gene of other mutants, nor of manipulating her own.

    Mystique has achieved genetic mastery which implies immortality and her ability to reset the age of her cells. The X-Men confirmed that Mystique’s power level is short of divine, and it is because of Mystique’s mere lack of interest in developing her powers further which is the only thing holding her back from true godhood status. If not for anyone, Nightcrawler already believes and worships Mystique’s god-like status.
