9 X-Men we wish had been in the movies

Though we love the ensemble we got throughout the 13 incredible X-Men movies that currently exist, there are some mutants we'd also love to have seen brought to life.

2. Sunfire (Shiro Yoshida)

Imagine Sunfire, aka Shiro Yoshida, lighting up the big screen with heat and plasma that dance at his fingertips.

It's not just about the sizzle and the "whoa, that's hot" though. Sunfire brings a whole new flavor to the X-Men mix with his deep-rooted love for his home country of Japan and a personality that's as fiery as his powers. Picture him zooming into a scene, flames swirling, ready to stand up for what he believes in with a passion that's both awe-inspiring and a tad bit scary. He's not just another mutant - he's a powerhouse of national pride and fiery spirit, making him a beacon of diversity and complexity among the X-Men crew.

Now, let's talk spectacle because, let's face it, we all love a good show.

Sunfire's ability to generate spicy plasma would make for some seriously eye-popping cinema. Imagine the visuals of him creating giant fireballs or flaming tornadoes, battling the baddies with a light show that makes the Fourth of July look like a test run. But it's not all about the dazzle. His volatile personality, mixed with his fierce loyalty to his country, could add layers of drama and conflict within the team, challenging the X-Men's ideals and pushing them towards greater understanding and unity.

Sunfire isn't just a walking solar flamethrower; he's a character with the potential to ignite conversations about identity, loyalty, and the true meaning of being a hero.
