X-Men (2000): Based on the Marvel Comics characters created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
The first of a blockbuster series, X-Men picked Wolverine as the main mutant hero from the comic book universe. Also featuring, Professor X, Magneto, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Rogue, Storm and Mystique, the film stayed true to plotlines and characterization but chose not to replicate the original costumes with their blue and yellow colour scheme. Heavily dependent on prosthetics and special make up, the film required 700 replicas of Wolverine's arm to be made for star Hugh Jackman and his stunt doubles. As shapeshifter Mystique, actress Rebecca Romijn had to wear 110 prosthetic pieces which took 9 hous to apply.
