Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were close friends discovering their powers for the first time. In 1962, the United States asks their help to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start World War III. But although they are successful a rift opens leading to the the conflict between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
Xavier’s foster-sister Raven Darkholme (Jennifer Lawrence), also known as Mystique, is one of the mutants who ultimately sides with Magneto.
Nicole O’Neill was the stunt double for Mystique and so also appeared in the full Mystique makeup in some scenes.
Frances Hannon was the makeup & hair designer / makeup department head; Mike Elizalde (Spectral Motion) was the special makeup designer; Lufeng Qu was the Mystique makeup supervisor.
