“ Colossus
Piotr "Peter" Nikolaievitch Rasputin

A hot boy with a required amount of muscles. Still not sure if I would like to match him up with either Nothstar or Shadowcat but either way, he'd make the perfect cut. The thought of him metal covered isn't all wrong neither! ” - Leonard Sjölander

13.
“ Forge
(Name unrevealed)

Since both name and motherland are unrevealed, the looks of the mutant has changed with the time. But I think of him as a little Arizona mexican. No doubt this gives free moving space for Thomas McDonell to form it himself. Also believes he seem to have the right personality for it as well. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
14.

“ Magneto
Max Eisenhardt

According to me Ian mcKellen looks a little to old for Magneto. But still you could not have an actor who would make Magneto look younger than other mutants (even Wolverine who actually is quite a lot older) , which made Gary a perfect match. ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Juggernaut
Cain Marko

The unstoppable Juggernaut. What is there to explain? ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
24.
“ Scarlet Witch
Wanda Maximoff

When I looked for a Scarlet Witch, I was looking for a natural brunette who you could see as a mother if you only wanted to. Maybe she looks a little young to have two teenager sons, but hey, when we're talking about flying men in bodysuits, i believe the look of age doesn't really matter. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
25.
Jeremy Sumpter

“ Iceman
Robert "Bobby" Drake

Looks like a typical american. Bet he'd pull of the teenager-ish mutant extraordinary. Not to talk about how he'd look in ice and a bandana. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
26.
“ Pyro
St. John Allerdyce

We'll if I would want someone even more australian youngster with that smirky smile, I'd have to look a lot longer for sure. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
27.
Samuel Larson
Sound Department, Deep Crimson
“ Toad
Mortimer Toynbee

Okay this was a reeeeally hard one. To find a man who has the traits of a toad but still somehow looks okay, is a lot harder then I expected. Although "Wolverine and the X-men" series gave me the idea of a boy with dreads, I immediately came to think of the new Glee actor. Seriously, there are almost no actors with dreads. I know now. ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Wolverine
James Howlett (Called Logan since he forgot his name)

Looks a little beastly but still protective and caring. After his role in Immortals I'm sure he would take off the aggressive mutant perfectly. ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Cannonball
Samuel Guthrie

It's hard to put words on Samuel. You see him a lot in the cartoons, but not too much of how he is as a person. But as I see it, he is independent and almost a little bit of a jester. Wich made me think of a certain "New Girl" actor. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
30.
Megan Fox
Actress, Transformers
Megan Denise Fox was born in Rockwood, Tennessee, to Gloria Darlene (Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox, a parole officer.

“ Pixie
Megan Gwynn

The pretty, caring and almost always happy mutant Pixie could only be impersonated by someone with a face like hers. Just wondering how she'd look in purple hair and fairy wings. ” - Leonard Sjölander

I haven't got any further explanation. But if you've seen Sinister in Action, you'd know why. Definitely. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
33.
“ Gambit
Remy leBeau

Looks sexy as hell. Just worried about how he'd manage the french accent. But no doubt he's got the gambit "thief" looks. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
34.
Alan Ritchson

Alan Michael Ritchson was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, to Vickie (Harrell), a high school teacher, and David Ritchson, a U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant...
“ Random
Marshall Stone III

Since Random is so "random" (hehehe), it's hard to tell how he actually looks like. At first I imaginedhim as a white silver surfer, but lately I've been thinking, since Marshall has the power to look however he wants, as a bounty hunder, wouldn't he want to look muscular and badass? Well I know I would. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
35.
“ Lady Deathstrike
Yuriko Oyama

To make it short: Kat von D is one of a very few asian looking girls who looks like she could be an tough serial killer (No offence! I love her for that). ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Omega Red
Arkady Gregorivich

I think that somehow Nick could act a lot like a russian if he'd only manage the accent. And after seeing the Spartacus series, we know his capability of playing evil men with power they shouldn't have. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
37.
David Boreanaz
Actor, Bones

“ Sabretooth
Victor Creed

Sure would suit the looks of an agressive animal. Mmmh-hmm ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
38.
“ Surge
Noriko "Nori" Ashida

Okay here I just thought of how Surge looks in the "X-men Destiny" game. And so i looked up "Pretty asian actors" and then when i saw Jenna I was like "booya!". ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Armor
Hisako Ichiki

To be honest, I did the same thing here. Although I think Armors' mutation is one of the coolest, she does simply not interest me as a character. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
40.
Matt Dallas

“ Angel
Warren Worthington III

Since I was annoyed by the looks of Angel in X2 this was my greatest concern. Angel is supposed to be the stunningly beautiful man who draw the looks of every girl (and several boys). Hope not Matt looks to silly as blonde though. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
41.
Naya Rivera
Actress, Glee
“ Magma
Amara Aquilla

Okay, so I know Amara is often drawn as a blonde or red-haired girl, but seriously, if you're a lava controlling mutant from south America you should be looking like Naya. I don't care if they dye her hair blonde.. Or actually I do. But if she would just have brown hair, She'd look like Amara in the "X-men Evolution" series, which I personally think is the best version. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
42.
Yunjin Kim
Actress, Lost
“ Jubilee
Jubilation Lee

The firework girl. Don't know but somehow, Yunjin just feels right. ” - Leonard Sjölander

Okay, so here's where I got a little outside the track and started googlin asian actors. But I believe I found a very good one! ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
44.
“ Sunpyre
Leyu Yoshida

I first saw Ziyi a couple of years ago in "Memoirs of a Geisha". Clearly, the most beautiful asian I've seen. And so I really wanted her as one of the Asian mutants. Where Sunpyre clearly is my favorite. ” - Leonard Sjölander

“ Dust
Sooraya Qadir

Okay, I'm not gonna lie. I didn't think this one out myself. I asked a frind for hot actresses born in the middle east (Although I dont see why she needs to be hot when she's covering everything up). The results are though pretty satisfying. ” - Leonard Sjölander
 
46.
Emmanuelle Chriqui

“ Chamber
Jonothon "Jono" Starsmore

“ Namor the Sub-Mariner
Namor mcKenzie

Since I've been longing for to see the atlantean prince in movies someday I wanted the actor to be as I think of Namor to be. Dark haired, a bit fiery look, would still look hot when outraged. Well this didn't make me more eager at all.. ” - Leonard Sjölander
