Look I know she's blue and everything, but I don't know whether t's her lips, curvy body or just the fact that she's so mysterious for some reason I find her to be alluring. What is it about women with an otherworldly appearance that makes them attractive?
Am I the only one who finds mystique sexy?
It does seem that Mystique is what her name implies --- extra-human mysterious. So, by definition, we have equal probability ascribing to her demonic/ugly and non-sexual connotations not unlike those ascribed to Mister Sinister.
Imagine a young woman (in the real world) named Edie acquires AIDS and when she finds out, she is so frustrated with society that she decides to take deadly vengeance --- she decides to have unprotected sex with uninfected but morally questionable men and get them infected. This deadly deed changes statistical reports about the causality trees associated with the spread of HIV/AIDS.
Now, we could take Edie's hypothetical story and suggest another perspective: it seems that people infected with AIDS want to have sex, but they can not due to their illness. This assessment has nothing to do with causality factors.
Likewise with a comic book anti-heroine like Mystique, we can argue that she looks physically attractive to serve as an omen or as a streamlined suggestion about redeemability.
As long as we're not offending one sector of the Mystique comic book readership, there seems to be no harm done with making liberal comments such as, "Whoever invented Mystique and first drew her definitely knew how to make female villains look alluring."
