X-Men Destiny Shows Off the Uglier Side of Marvel's Mutant Menace

The San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing, making it the perfect time to parade out some ugly X-Men cosplayers, courtesy of Activision's X-Men Destiny.

The new generation of X-Men making their debut in X-Men Destiny this September look decidedly last-generation, don't they? Perhaps not the three main characters, a trio of mutant teens just coming into their powers, but the supporting class looks like they'd be right at home in a PlayStation 2 title. Just look at what they've done to poor Emma Frost.

Of course graphics aren't everything, and I'm not want to turn up my nose at any game that allows me to integrate myself into the X-Men. I'll just wear a bag over my television while I'm playing it.

At first, I thought the game would allow you to create your own mutant and then play through the game making choices, picking sides, and increasing your powers. I'm a little disappointed that you have to pick between three pre-made mutants.

I do like the way the characters look (not referring the graphics but the art direction) and the plot sounds interesting, but I can't help but feel that a lot of potential has already been squandered.
