The X-Men have more villains than just Magneto. These ten characters would fit perfectly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios will always give fans something to talk about. Sometimes it’s the TV shows on Disney Plus and sometimes it’s the movies. The former continue to draw viewers to Disney Plus while the latter are always hugely successful at the box office.
Beyond the money, the projects bring news of future endeavors. For example, Thor: Love and Thunder brought more gods into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Among them is Hercules (played by Brett Goldstein) who will likely battle with and alongside Thor in a future movie. There’s also the news from the Ms. Marvel season finale that mutants exist in the MCU. If they exist, that means the X-Men are on their way.
In episode 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, there was an article with an Easter Egg within it that said, “Man fights with metal claws in bar brawl.” Fans are hoping this means more mutant appearances in the future, and hints to when the X-Men are coming. If that’s the case, a project featuring Marvel’s Mighty Mutants could be on its way.
With the X-Men comes different villains than anything we’ve seen before in the MCU. The first one that comes to most people’s minds is Magneto. He’s one of the most popular villains in Marvel Comics. Of course he will appear at some point. However, Marvel Studios should avoid the mistake 20th Century Fox made. There are more antagonists to use than him. Here are ten that should be used.
