Across the eight X-Men films released over the past sixteen years (hands up, who now feels old?), we have seen many of the X-Men comics’ best heroes, villains and those somewhere in between translated to the big screen. Some to a great effect, and others… not so much. For instance, the likes of Emma Frost, Juggernaut and even Cyclops.
Yet, at least they have made it to the movies, while other very worthwhile characters have never even got that chance. Thankfully, the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will right this wrong for a couple of fan-favourites, as Jubilee and Psylocke will make their debuts in the film (all right, a character credited as Psylocke appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand, but she was such a minor role it hardly counts). The one we’re really excited for, though, is the big-screen arrival of Cable, who was teased at the end of Deadpool.
Discounting those that are desperately in need of a reboot or recast, in this article we’ll take a look at eight X-Men characters who have yet to make it onto the screen in any form but really need to.
