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.

8. Pixie (Megan Gwynn)

Imagine if the X-Men world had a sprinkle of fairy dust mixed into its usual blend of mutant powers and high-octane battles. Let me tell you about Pixie, a.k.a. Megan Gwynn, a mutant whose very presence feels like she fluttered straight out of a magical storybook.

With iridescent, insect-like wings that allow her to zip and zoom through the air and a magical ability that's all about casting spells and teleporting friends (and foes!) with her Souldagger, Pixie adds a whimsical yet powerful twist to the X-Men team. Picture her weaving through laser beams, a trail of sparkling dust in her wake, offering a visually stunning spectacle that's part fairy tale, part superhero showdown. Now, doesn't that sound like a cinematic treat? Sign me up!

But Pixie isn't just about the glitz and glam of magic and flight - she's a bridge between two worlds: the gritty reality of the X-Men's struggles and the enchanting possibilities of magic.

Her story arcs could explore themes of identity, as she learns to navigate her place between the human, mutant, and magical realms. Plus, her youthful energy and optimism would add a light-hearted balance to the often-dark X-Men saga, reminding both her teammates and the audience that there's always hope, and maybe a little bit of magic, even in the toughest of times.

With Pixie in the mix, the X-Men movies could have flown to new, fantastical heights, enchanting audiences with a spellbinding blend of action, emotion, and a dash of pixie dust.
