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.

4. Marrow (Sarah Rushman)

Imagine if you could grow bones outside your body and use them as swords or shields. Sounds freaking badass, right? (And a smidge painful, I have to admit)

Well, meet Marrow, aka Sarah Rushman, who can do exactly that. She's like the ultimate survival toolkit, with the ability to pop out a bone knife for a slice of action or a bone shield for those oopsie moments when things get too explosive. But Marrow isn't just about her bone-chilling (pun intended) abilities - it's her heart-tugging life story that could've added some serious depth to the X-Men movies. Growing up in the dark and dank Morlock tunnels in New York, she didn't exactly have a childhood filled with sunshine and rainbows. This tough upbringing makes her a character with layers (of bone and emotions) and a resilience that could inspire anyone watching.

It would have been awesome to see Marrow stepping onto the big screen, bones at the ready, facing off against baddies while grappling with her own feelings of being different. Her journey from living in the shadows to standing tall with the X-Men could have been a beacon of hope for anyone feeling out of place. Plus, her unique look and bone-tastic powers would've been a visual feast in action scenes, giving us something we've actually never seen before in the franchise's adventures on the big screen. Marrow's story is all about finding beauty in what makes us unique and learning to wield our inner strength, even if it's a bit pointy.

In a world where fitting in is the norm, Marrow could have shown us the power of standing out - and that, my friends, would've been truly epic to see in the X-Men movies.
