Notorious for her beauty and seduction, we discover Mystique transitioning back to her natural, icy-blue skin. Throughout the icon twist and turns of the X-Men series, we always find Mystique consumed by her insecurities. This intriguing mutant continually changes her identity with hopes that her external appearance is accepted. She transitions into the images of others, but rarely exposes her true mutant self. She is one of the most powerful mutants, but yet, she is the most vulnerable. Throughout his career, Ganem has crossed paths with different forms of beauty. However, in the end, he has found that the most beautiful of all the beauty, comes from within. Beauty is found internally and how you treat others and yourself is a true reflection of that.
