“The best way of describing it is X-Men meets Bond, with a little bit of Thirteen Days thrown in for good measure,” Vaughn told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s set in the ’60s, and I basically molded a young Magneto on a young Sean Connery. He’s the ultimate spy — imagine Bond, but with superpowers.”

Vaughan approached Mystique not as a villain, but as a conflicted potential hero, pursuing what she sees as civil rights for the mutant race. With fast-paced espionage, “Mystique” should appeal to viewers who like the James Bond elements of “X-Men: First Class.”
