Brotherhood of Mutants

A more radical group of mutants than those from the Xavier School, these mutants stand for a world where their kind reigns supreme and humanity acknowledges their superiority. Led by Erik "Magneto" Lehnsherr, they are unafraid of using violence and conflict to achieve their goal of mutant supremacy.

Victor Creed / Sabretooth
"You owe me a scream."
"When are you going to figure it out? We're not like them."

Played By: Tyler Mane, Liev Schreiber & Michael-James Olsen (kid)

Voiced By: Rolando de Castro (Latin-American Spanish, X-Men 1), Idzi Dutkiewicz (Latin-American Spanish, Origins), Memo Aponte (Latin-American Spanish, kid, Origins)

Film Appearances: X-Men | X-Men Origins: Wolverine

"I'm not your friend. I'm an animal, who dreamed he was a man. But the dream is over. And the beast is awake. And I will come for you, because it's my nature."

A mutant exhibiting feline-like features (such as sharp teeth and claw-like fingernails; he can also move with the agility of a sabretooth tiger) and a Healing Factor similar to Wolverine (though apparently less potent). Born in the mid-1800s, he and Logan are half-brothers (back when Logan went by his real name, James Howlett) and helped him escape after Logan's mutations emerged and he killed his biological father. He and Logan became soldiers throughout history but the constant combat turned Victor into a bloodthirsty sociopath.

  • Adaptation Name Change: A variation. The credits for "Origins" gives his father's name as "Thomas Logan." Taking this into account, his birth name is Victor Logan and he changed his name surname to "Creed" at a later date. This is in contrast to the comics where the character's birth name is supposedly Victor Creed.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: A very slight case, but he has (or at least had) some very hidden and very ill expressed brotherly feelings for Logan. Comics Sabretooth is a textbook sociopath without any redeeming qualities.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Zig-Zagged regarding his healing factor. In the comics, it was stated that Creed's regenerative abilities were superior to Logan's (although that fact itself is more of an informed attribute since Logan is depicted as having survived more extreme injuries). In the movie, Stryker implies that Creed's healing factor isn't as strong as Logan's when he points out that Creed wouldn't survive the adamantium bonding process (compare the comics, where he has undergone it and survived multiple times). note 
  • All There in the Manual: The reason why Victor Creed in X-Men Origins: Wolverine doesn't seem to have connection with Sabretooth in X-Men is explained in tie-in comic: X2: X-Men United: The Movie Prequel: Wolverine. In this comic, it's revealed that Sabretooth survived his apparent death in X-Men and has been following Wolverine since the end of the first film. They fight and Wolverine defeats him, but he didn't kill Sabretooth when he notices Sabretooth's dog tag on him that's very similar to Wolverine's. In order to find further answers, Logan and Sabretooth share what they knew about each other in order to shed light on their connected past, and Sabretooth states that his real name is Victor Creed, and that prior to five years ago his memory was mostly blank (implying that like Logan, his memory was wiped), save for nightmares of things he did on missions (most likely Team X's various missions). Victor also states that the reason he worked for Magneto was that the latter promised to help in disclosing his past, very much like Xavier promised for Wolverine himself. They eventually regain some memories together while teaming up against HYDRA before Creed makes a Heroic Sacrifice to save Logan from being captured by Stryker again.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Wolverine in Origins. Strangely, he is also depicted as this to Storm in the first film.
  • Ax-Crazy: Has a bloodlust that only mindless battle seems to satisfy.
  • Badass Longcoat: He sports one in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
    Wraith: "I ain't Bradley, Victor. And your creepy black coat don't scare me."
    Creed: "Really? Worked on Dukes."
  • Bash Brothers: He and Logan do this for the first fifteen minutes of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The opening sequence is a badass Montage through The American Civil War, WW1, WW2 and The Vietnam War! They also come back together briefly at the end, albeit for a mutual gain.
  • Beast Man: In X-Men Origins: Wolverine he has claw-like fingernails, fangs instead of canines, and by X-Men he's basically an animal.
  • Big Brother Bully: Once he's required to fight Logan in Origins.
  • Big Brother Instinct: For all his (many) flaws, he really loves his little brother Jimmy. It's best illustrated in the Civil War part of the opening montage, when Logan is shot and they are (at the time) unaware of their healing factors, Victor's expression says it all.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Instead of the pure white eyes he has in the comics, he sports pitch black eyes to underline his monstrous nature in X-Men.
  • Blood Knight: Joins many wars for over a century only to keep his killer instincts satisfied. He enjoys being a warrior far too much to start a life of peace with James.
  • The Brute: To Magneto in X-Men. He relies mostly in brute force when it comes to combat, in contrast with Mystique and Toad, who employ ambushes and acrobatics in their fighting styles.
  • Cain and Abel: Significantly more unhinged and murderous than his brother Logan.
  • Composite Character: X-Men Origins: Wolverine went along with the comic book's hints that Dog Logan and Victor Creed/Sabretooth were the same person, which was disproven years later. Movie Victor also takes on Rose's role from the Origin comic as the person who helped Logan run away.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    Victor: [after Wolverine pops his new claws in front of him for the first time] Ooh. Shiny.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Wolverine like in the comics. They possesses the exact same powerset and both have an animalistic side but Logan strives to keep his under control while Creed has fully embraced it.
  • Evil Is Bigger: In X-Men, as Tyler Mane is 6' 9" (2.06 m). In X-Men Origins: Wolverine not so much, as Liev Schrieber is only 3 cm taller than Hugh Jackman.
  • "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner: He gets a good one in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as both he and Logan are facing a firing squad. Subverted in that he knows he isn't going to die, so it's more of a mocking one liner.
    Victor Creed: Wake me when it's over.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Which he pairs with his Psychotic Smirk.
  • Healing Factor: Although if Stryker is to be believed, it is not as effective as Logan's (which is why he can't undergo adamantium augmentation). It does allow him to live an unnaturally long life, however. See Adaptational Wimp above.
  • Hero Killer: In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he murders about 80% of the cast. His resume includes: Wolverine's Only Friend John Wraith, Wade Wilson (though Stryker somewhat brings him back brainwashed), Silverfox, twice. Bradley and finally Blob (at least that's what's implied by his dialogue with Wraith). Meaning the only main cast members he never killed were Wolverine, Gambit, Agent Zero and Stryker.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With his half-brother Logan for their childhood and most of their adult lives, up until Logan leaves Team X.
  • I Am a Monster: In one of the trailers for X-Men Origins: Wolverine which features him uttering this chilling line.
    Sabertooth: I'm not your friend...I'm an animal, who dreamed he was a man. But the dream is over...and the beast is awake. And I will come for you, because it's my nature.
  • Immune to Mind Control: Zig-Zagged. He is only shown this with Kayla Silverfox's power. But he is still susceptible to Professor X highjacking his body. Its not clear why or how.
  • Psychotic Smirk: In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he likes giving these. By X-Men, he's become much colder and emotionless, to the point of verging into The Stoic.
  • Running on All Fours: A sign of him being more animal than man, he runs on all fours when fighting in Origins.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he somehow can find his former teammates to kill them.
  • The Sociopath: It's clear that he enjoys making people suffer. He does however have a genuine connection to his little brother Logan until it fell apart later on.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Considering his attempted rape of a local during Vietnam, as well as the implied killing of civilians while firing from a helicopter during the same war.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: In X-Men, all his lines are no louder than a whisper.
  • Super Strength: Is strong enough to lift trees and physically stronger than Wolverine and thus demolishes him in direct combat. To defeat him Wolverine had to make full use of his superior skills, quick thinking and the boost that his adamantium skeleton gives him.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: While the "Dream's End" arc would see him join the comic version a few months after the first film's release, prior to that the Sabretooth of the comics was never a member of the Brotherhood.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's one the few purely evil members of the Brotherhood unlike the others who are simply Well Intentioned Extremists.
  • Undying Warrior: As with his comic counterparts, Sabertooth is practically immortal thanks to their regenerative powers, and the introductory sequence of X-Men Origins: Wolverine demonstrates that he and Wolverine have enjoyed a very long career in the military: among other things, they both participated in the American Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War before getting embroiled in the modern conflicts between mutants and humans.
  • The Vietnam Vet: The Vietnam conflict is when he noticeably gives in to his Blood Knight tendencies and attempts to rape a local.
  • We Used to Be Friends: X-Men Origins: Wolverine details the relationship between him and James Howlett (Wolverine), who are half-brothers. They were Bash Brothers to the very end until his sociopathy went off the deep end and caused James to lose his connection with him.
    • He also kills his old teammates.
  • Wolverine Claws: On his fingernails, instead of knuckles.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He wanted to cause Storm enough pain so that she would scream, but he failed twice.
  • Yandere: With Wolverine. About a sibling relationship and not lovers, but it fits pretty well.
  • You Have Failed Me: Gets a non-fatal one in X-Men when Magneto puts him "in the doghouse" by locking him in a cell after Sabretooth fails to recapture Senator Kelly.

    Mortimer Toynbee / Toad 

Mortimer Toynbee / Toad
"Don't you people ever die?"

Played By: Ray Park & Evan Jonigkeit

Voiced By: Israel Magaña (Latin-American Spanish, old, X-Men 1), Esteban Desco (Latin-American Spanish, young, Days of Future Past)

Film Appearances: X-Men | X-Men Origins: Wolverinenote  | X-Men: Days of Future Past

A very agile fighter with a menacing streak and a long, prehensile tongue, who can also spit a slimy substance onto others.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: He is a short, ugly little hunchback in the comics. In X-Men, he's played by Ray Park with some very half-hearted attempts at uglying him up. However, in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the younger Toad has many more noticeable bumps and wrinkles on his face.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the comics, he was originally conceived as a deformed, sniveling hunchback who served as The Igor to Magneto. His super power was he could hop... really high because of having very low-grade super-strength, concentrated in his legs. However, his version from X-Men is a wisecracking martial artist with wall-crawling abilities, slime projectiles and a tongue that he can use as a whip, thus making him more capable of holding his own in a fight with other heroes. In Days of Future Past he's confirmed to be a Vietnam veteran too.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Averted in the first film. Toad is portrayed as British much like his comic book counterpart.
    • Played Straight im Days of Future Past where he is Americanised (much like his animated counterparts) and has somehow served in the Vietnam War
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: The slime/saliva Toad can spit is not just adhesive in the comics, it's also acidic in nature unlike in the first film.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin has a greenish hue.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: He possesses some toad-like traits, such as an Overly-Long Tongue and being able to hop from one place to another at distances which are far greater than what a regular human can achieve.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: He subdues Cyclops in the train station by grabbing his visor, causing a distraction when Cyclops winds up blowing a hole in the ceiling and having him shut his eyes to stop the beam.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wears one in the train station scene when he ambushes Cyclops.
  • Bag of Kidnapping: Put Rogue in one and is shown carrying the bag as the Brotherhood leaves the train station.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: The irises are so big they look black from a distance.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Taunts Sabretooth when the latter fails to capture Rogue.
    "Weren't you meant to bring someone back with you?"
  • Delinquent Hair: Sports a mohawk in his youth.
  • Divide and Conquer: Employs this strategy in the museum. His opening move is to knock out Cyclops and lock him up, while kicking Jean and Storm away from one another. He then lifts Storm to the upper level with his tongue so Jean has to face him alone.
  • EvilBrit: Only in the first film. Days of Future Past invert this by Americanising him and less villainous.
  • Evil Genius: He's seen tampering with Magneto's machine.
  • In a Single Bound: His mutation let him jump great heights and across large distances.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Toad is very agile, as his mutation allows him to quickly leap across large distances, and he can also use his tongue to pull himself towards his target. Combined with his skills as a martial artist, he proves to be a great challenge to Cyclops, Jean and Storm when they fight at Liberty Island.
  • Older Than They Look: Given the reveal that he was a soldier in Vietnam, he was somewhere in his forties during the first film. Ray Park was only 26 at the time.
  • Overly-Long Tongue: Toad has a long prehensile tongue that is strong enough to lift a grown human with little effort.
  • Super Spit: In X-Men, Toad spits some gunk out at Jean Grey's face, which hardens on contact with her skin and causes her to suffocate.
  • Troll: Never misses an opportunity to pick on Sabretooth.
    • When Sabretooth comes back after failing to capture Rogue:
    Toad: Weren't you supposed to bring someone back with you?
    Sabretooth: *growls*
    • And again when Sabretooth gets a lightning bolt in his chest from Storm:
    Toad: Quit playing around.
    Sabretooth: *growls*
  • Uncertain Doom: He's last seen falling into the Hudson River after Storm hits him with a lightning bolt and never appears again. He was supposed to return in the sequel, but this was canned due to scheduling conflicts with his actor.
  • Violent Glaswegian: He's a mutant terrorist portrayed by a Scottish actor, although Ray Park plays him with a North London accent note  as cold and analytical.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He has no qualms attacking Jean Grey and Storm.

    John Allerdyce / Pyro 

John Allerdyce / Pyro
"You know all those dangerous mutants you hear about on the news? I'm the worst one."

Played By: Alexander Burton, Aaron Stanford

Voiced By: Moisés Iván Mora (Latin-American Spanish)

Film Appearances: X-Men | X2: X-Men United | X-Men: The Last Stand

A friend of Bobby and Rogue, Pyro has anti-social tendencies because he is very angry at humans for how they treat the mutant community. He has the ability to control (although not create) fire. Magneto tells him that "You are a god amongst insects; never let anyone tell you any different."

  • Adaptational Nationality: The Australian St. John Allerdyce from the comics has been adapted to an American without the "Saint" in his given name.
  • Adaptation Name Change: His name is changed from St. John Allerdyce to the Americanized John Allerdyce.
  • Age Lift: As with Iceman, he's closer in age to Cyclops, Jean, and Storm in the comics, but younger than them in the film.
  • Ascended Extra: Had about 5 seconds of screen time in the first film, but then became a prominent character in both X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand.
  • Ax-Crazy: While flinging fireballs at the cops in X2: X-Men United, he has a grin on his face and is enjoying the mayhem that he's causing.
  • The Dragon: Becomes Magneto's second-in-command in the third film after Mystique is injected with the mutant cure.
  • Elemental Baggage: He can only control fire, not create it. He compensates for this by carrying a lighter around with him, and in the third movie, a wrist mounted flamethrower.
  • Evil Former Friend: Becomes Bobby Drake's Arch-Enemy in the third film. They clash during the titular last stand, each using their opposing powers in a Beam-O-War that ends with Iceman's victory.
  • Face–Heel Turn: X2: X-Men United shows him defecting to the Brotherhood, and the following one has him going full "fuck you, I'm evil!"
  • Freudian Excuse: Implied in the second film. John has a pensive, perhaps resentful look on his face as he scans the happy family photos in Bobby's house. Whether he's quietly mourning something he himself lost, or bitterly reflecting on happiness he never enjoyed in the first place, is left ambiguous.
  • Jerkass: In X2: X-Men United, he is swayed by Magneto's words and starts falling into the dark side. He escalated the confrontation with the police by openly attacking them when the others were trying to resolve the situation peacefully—though to be fair, one of the cops had just shot Logan in the head.
  • Oh, Crap!: Get this in the third movie when Bobby manages to overcome his fire power by completely covering himself in in ice and getting close to disable his flamethrowers, before knocking Pyro out with a headbutt.
  • Parental Abandonment: Judging by the sad and envious expression on his face when he stares at the Drake family photos in X2: X-Men United, it's strongly implied that John's parents have disowned him (or they died when he was very youngnote ).
  • Playing with Fire: He can't generate fire, but is immune to it and can direct and magnify any nearby fire. As such, he uses a lighter to create it when he needs to in the first two movies, and he gets a wrist mounted flamethrower in the third.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: In X2: X-Men United, the rebellious, Jerkass Pyro juxtaposes the rule-abiding, Nice Guy Iceman. At the museum's food court, John is being rude to a young man who asks to borrow his lighter, and Bobby tells his friend to knock it off, plainly disapproving of John's annoying behavior. When the police order the mutants to get on the ground, Bobby immediately obeys, but John attacks the officers with giant fire balls—though this is perhaps because Wolverine had just been shot in the head.
  • Smug Super: Loves having powers and being "better" than humans.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Completes his Face–Heel Turn when he lashes out in anger at a group of police officers who follow a false tip-off and believe that he's holding the Drakes hostage. Rather than protest his innocence, he decides to embrace the "evil mutant" image and fight back. To be fair, one of the cops shot Wolverine in the head.
    "You know all those 'dangerous mutants' you hear about on the news? (Beat) I'm the worst one."
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Towards Professor X in X-Men: The Last Stand. This doesn't sit well with Magneto.
    Pyro: I would've killed the Professor if you had given me the chance.
    Magneto: Charles Xavier did more for mutants than you'll ever know. My single greatest regret is that that he had to die for our dream to live.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: If he doesn't have anything to generate flames (such as his lighter in the first film and the wrist flame throwers in the second) he's pretty much easy pickings. Bobby ended their fight in the third movie quickly once he got in close enough to disable his flamethrowers. Granted it was only after going full ice mode during their Beam-O-War but still...
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Not at all stated what happened to him post X-Men: The Last Stand, either having been captured or killed.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He has no problem throwing a fireball at a female cop who has him at gunpoint.

    Cain Marko / Juggernaut 

Cain Marko / Juggernaut
"Don't you know who I am? I'm the JUGGERNAUT, bitch!"

Played By: Vinnie Jones

Voiced By: Octavio Rojas (Latin-American Spanish)

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

"I'm the wrong guy to play hide-n'-seek with."

A criminal recruited by the Brotherhood after being rescued from a prison truck, Juggernaut is incredibly strong, fast, and once he gains momentum, he is almost unstoppable.

For tropes applying to Juggernaut in the the new timeline established by X-Men: Days of Future Past, see the Other Mutants (New Timeline) page.

  • Adaptational Nationality: American in the comics. British in the Last Stand film.
    • Though Deadpool 2 switches him back to American like the comics.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the films, he is just a hyper-strong big dude. In the comics, to put it simply, he can shatter mountains and use buildings as weapons.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Not actually a mutant in the original comics, where he is instead gifted with his Juggernaut abilities by a mystical gem during the Korean War.
  • Age Lift: His comic counterpart is in fact older than Professor Xavier.
  • Badass Boast: "Don't you know who I am? I'm the JUGGERNAUT, bitch!" Taken from the "humorous" internet shorts.
  • Bald of Evil: Keeps his head shaved, probably so his helmet can fit.
  • The Brute: He is massive and the strongest guy in the group.
  • Chained by Fashion: He just never bothered to take his restraints off.
  • Dumb Muscle: Tremendous brawn, not much brain.
  • Evil Brit: Of course in the comics he's American, but given there's no attempt to change the British actor's voice or anything...
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: His superpower is the Foe Tossing Charge, and he is played by Vinnie Jones, who started out in ye olde British football.
  • The Juggernaut: He could only be contained in shackles designed specifically for him. The police holding are heard warning others not to let him move, not even a little, because if he gets moving nothing will stop him.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's very strong and pretty fast (particularly because he can't be stopped).
  • My Name Is Inigo Montoya: "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!"
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivers one to Wolverine.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Wears a maroon outfit with black highlights.
  • Super Strength: One of the strongest characters in the franchise, rivaled only by Colossus and the Future Sentinels, strong enough to punch people through walls, knocks down concrete walls with his headbutts, leap right through metal walls. He is physically very heavy as well, shaking up an entire truck by just jumping down a few inches, cracking concrete while running, and crushing an armored jeep by jumping on it. This combined with his Lightning Bruiser abilities proved to very painful to Wolverine.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: In an almost Typecasting kind of way.
    Pyro: Nice helmet.
    Juggernaut: Keeps my face pretty.
  • Tempting Fate: Gave his Badass Boast towards Kitty, only to get knocked out cold.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: "Don't you know who I am?! I'm the JUGGERNAUT, bitch!" (Ascended Meme, inspired by My Way Entertainment's Gag Dub).
  • Uncertain Doom: No indication is made of what happened to him after he got knocked out shortly before Phoenix began killing everybody on the island.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: He is Xavier's step-brother in the comics, but not in the movies.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He is willing to murder Kitty Pryde.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Magneto's assault on Alcatraz involved killing Leech. When Juggernaut is ordered to do it, he replies "With pleasure."

    Jamie Madrox / Multiple Man 

James "Jamie" Madrox / Multiple Man

Played By: Eric Dane

Voiced By: Ricardo Mendoza (Latin-American Spanish)

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

Mystique: This guy robbed several banks... at the same time.

A mutant and a thief recruited by the Brotherhood in a prison truck, Madrox has the power to create an infinite number of copies of himself.

  • Actually A Doom Bot: Made an army of duplicates in order to bluff that they were the entire Brotherhood Of Mutants.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, he is associated with the X-Factor, a X-Men offshoot. However, the film makes him part of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. (That said, the Multiple Man from the Ultimate Universe was a member of the Brotherhood, which makes his film version a mix of the two.)
  • Covert Pervert: He first scene ends as he is checking out Mystique's ass
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Jamie Madrox's name appears on a list of names Mystique scrolls through on Stryker's computer while looking for Magneto's file in X2.
  • Mauve Shirt: His only active part in the plot is distracting the military while the Brotherhood goes to San Francisco.
  • The Quiet One: Has a total of TWO lines in X-Men: The Last Stand.
  • Self-Duplication: His superpower let's him rob seven banks at the same time. He later makes hundreds of duplicates to make authorities think they're the entire Brotherhood.
  • Smug Super: Always cool and unfettered.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Going hand-in-hand with his Adaptational Villainy, whereas his comic counterpart was a member of a back-up team of the X-Men and later X-Factor.

    Dark Phoenix 
Back when she was a little girl, Jean Grey was visited by both Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier, both wanting to learn to her the use of her powers for their respective goals.

Fearing that Jean could not control her vast psychic powers, Charles Xavier put psychic blocks around her subconscious mind to keep Jean's abilities in check. As a result while growing up, Jean developed a dual personality - one being her usual self and the other her vastly strong, powerful, and uninhibited side that called itself the Phoenix Force, which emerged when she was angry or enraged.

In X-Men: The Last Stand, after apparently killed Cyclops and Professor X with her newly strengthened and enhanced telekinesis due to cannot control her power or herself, she joined Magneto's brotherhood. As she senses the Phoenix taking over, she asks Wolverine twice to kill her. The second time, the request is fulfilled.

For more about her, see the Jean Grey / Phoenix page.

The Omegas

A group of mutant outcasts who allied with Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants during the Cure crisis.


"You're so proud of being a mutant, where's your mark?"

Played By: Dania Ramirez

Voiced By: Rossy Aguirre (Latin-American Spanish)

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

The leader of the Omegas, who possesses enhanced acute senses that can detect mutants and their powers, and superhuman speed.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The Callisto from the comics has been portrayed as from just rather odd-faced to downright disgusting, and she leads the Morlocks precisely because they are mutants too deformed to be accepted by human society. In the film she is played by a conventionally beautiful actress.
  • Adaptational Badass: The original Callisto has just improved senses and moderately superhuman speed and strength. This version can outright detect mutants and her physical skills are more in line with Quicksilver.
  • Composite Character: She merges the powers of Caliban and Quicksilver. Her leadership role and personality (which isn't all that fleshed out in the movie, but overall it's pretty consistent with the comics) are the only traces of the comics' Callisto.
  • Dark Action Girl: Basically Magneto's replacement for Mystique.
  • Designated Girl Fight: Storm gets a rivalry with her, fighting her on two occasions. However, this has less to do with them both being female than a nod to their complex relationship in the comics.
  • Foil: To Storm, who she fights twice.
  • Forehead of Doom: She is a villainess with a sizeable forehead.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Like many of the Omegas, her clothing consists of nothing but dark leather.
  • In Name Only: She's not scarred or one-eyed, she has a mix of Caliban's and Quicksilver's powers and not her own hypersensitivity.

    Quill / Kid Omega 

Quill / Kid Omega

Played By: Ken Leung

Voiced By: Irwin Daayán (Latin-American Spanish)

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

A mutant who can eject spikes from his body, most notably his face.

  • Deadly Hug: He kills Dr. Rao by hugging her and then extending his spikes.
  • Joke Character: See his picture? That's his sole power. Can't even fire them off as projectiles. He can only kill people if he can manage to hug them first. This is especially true considering he's on the same team with people like Magneto and Dark Phoenix.
  • In Name Only: For some reason, the credits name him Kid Omega despite his character being unmistakingly Quill.
  • Knight Templar: Like the rest of the Omegas.
  • Mauve Shirt: Lasts quite a bit, kills one character and almost does so with a second.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He genuinely thinks he's a powerful mutant, and specifically that he's threatening to Magneto at the gathering of mutants when he extends his quills. His sole kill in X-Men: The Last Stand is killing a single, crying woman by letting her hug him and then extending his quills. Then he gets killed in an action that could be charitably called an afterthought.
  • Spikes of Doom: Has porcupine quills which he can eject out of his body.
  • Tattooed Crook: Like most Omegas, he has many tattoos.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Neither Quill or Kid Omega were Brotherhood members in the comics.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: His only kill in X-Men: The Last Stand was Kavita Rao (the scientist who developed the mutant "cure") whom he hugged, then deployed his quills.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Like the other Omegas, who want mutant rights but have crossed the line into mutant superiority.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He gives a Deadly Hug to Dr. Kavita Rao.

    Phillipa Sontag / Arclight 

Phillipa Sontag / Arclight

Played By: Omahyra Mota

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

A mutant with the ability to emit enormous shockwaves upon clasping her hands.

  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In the comics, she was a member of Mister Sinister's Marauders, who once caused a massacre of Morlocks. In the film, she's in the same team as the leader of the Morlocks of all people, Callisto.
  • The Quiet One : She doesn't talk very often.
  • Race Lift: Vietnamese in the comics. Played by a Dominican actress here.
  • Shockwave Clap: She has this ability. And that's all she does, but apparently she can control it well enough to make sure the shockwave only breaks certain materials.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Her comic counterpart was a member of the Marauders, not the Brotherhood.



Played By: Meiling Melançon

Film Appearances: X-Men: The Last Stand

A member of the Omegas with the power of traveling through shadows.

For tropes applying to Psylocke in the new timeline established by X-Men: Days of Future Past, see the Other Mutants (New Timeline) page.

  • Adaptational Nationality: Pyslocke is British English in the comics. Kwannon is Japanese. Either way Meiling's version is portrayed as American.
  • Adaptational Wimp:
    • In the comics, Psylocke is a powerful telepath who later gains telekinesis and some other minor abilities, like precognition, invisibility and opening up shadow portals. In the film, however, her only apparent power is the last of those. Interestingly, the comics explain it was a side effect of the Crimson Dawn and not any inherent mutant power, while in the film it seems it is her mutant power.
    • Her presumably non-canon cameo in the X2: X-Men United novelization goes more in line with the comics, as it shows her as a telepath, although still not as strong as her comic self.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She is associated with the X-Men in the comics, but in X-Men: The Last Stand she appears as a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants.
  • In Name Only: The only aspects from Psylocke on this character are her purple hair, shadow portal powers and the red tattoo from Crimson Dawn. There is even controversy about whether she was meant to be Psylocke in the first place: director Ratner claimed she was and had always been planned to be, but screenwriter Zack Penn stated he wasn't sure how the name of Psylocke ended up in the film, and actress Meiling Melançon even believed she was actually portraying Revanche (Psylocke's Japanese body swap) at some point. If the latter was true, it would be an even greater artistic license, because Melançon's character differs more from Revanche than she does from Psylocke.
