"The stories about us written by Chris Claremont in the late 1970s and early 1980s were some of the first mainstream comics that had more than one female character at a time, with lines and powers and motives and everything. The movie, on the other hand, doesn’t even try to pass the Bechdel test. Its 1973 plot has one woman, Mystique, the third in a classic bromantic triangle with Xavier and Magneto. The 1973 plot—that’s most of the movie—also has one non-white speaking role, a Vietnamese officer whom Mystique kills and impersonates. The future looks terrible (and grey and cloudy—why do all dystopias look grey and cloudy?) but at least it’s diverse: Storm and Bishop, Blink and Warpath, tear up the screen."
