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.

7. Armor

Imagine this: we're witnessing the middle of a fierce battle and things are looking grim for our beloved X-Men. Then, out of nowhere, Armor steps up to the plate, her body suddenly enveloped in a glowing, translucent exoskeleton, making her look like a superhero straight out of a kid's wildest dream.

She's not just any mutant - she's a walking, talking tank with a heart of gold. Armor, or Hisako Ichiki if we're being formal, has this super cool ability to create psychic armor around herself, making her super strong and virtually indestructible. Picture her punching through walls, tossing cars like they're toys, and shielding her teammates from harm. It's the kind of jaw-dropping, popcorn-spilling action that would have us all glued to the screen, cheering her on. And it's not just about the spectacle, it's about what she represents - a young mutant learning to harness her incredible powers and finding her place among legends.

But Armor would bring so much more to the table than just her muscle.

There's a heartwarming story waiting to be told about her journey, one filled with challenges, self-discovery, and growth. She's a relatable character who's trying to balance her duties as an X-Men with her personal life and aspirations, much like many of us. Her story is a powerful reminder that being strong isn't just about physical abilities - it's also about the strength to overcome personal obstacles and protect the ones we care about. Through her eyes, we'd explore themes of responsibility, courage, and the importance of finding one's own identity. Armor's presence in the movies could have been a beacon of inspiration, showing us that even when we feel encased in our own vulnerabilities, there's a mighty hero within us all, waiting to break free and make a difference.

So, why wasn't she in the movies? Well, that's a question for the ages, but one thing's for sure - Armor would have been an absolute blast to watch.
