In this reality Mystique is a man and goes by the name of Raphael-Raven Darkholme (and his alias is Mystiq). Much like the main Mystique he had a relationship with Destiny but due to his gender had a child with her (Claremont's original plan for Nightcrawler's origin). They were both killed in unknown circumstances and Raphael often went to their grave sites. On such an occasion, he was about to be attacked by soldiers when the Exiles' Sabretooth, who had been stranded on this Earth, saved his life. Saying he was in his debt, he joined the Exiles when they came to pick up their teammate.


Presumably Mystiq has the same shapeshifting abilities as his female, mainstream counterpart: Raven Darkholme. This would grant him the following powers:


  • Metamorphic Adaptation
  • Enhance Physical Attributes
  • Accelerated Healing
  • Toxin & Disease Resistance
  • Retarded Aging
  • Psychic Defense
