We get to see so many awesome X-Men in Days of Future Past that we haven't seen on screen before. However, in a comic book universe as expansive at the mighty X-Men, there's always gonna be a few that don't make the cut...

1. Broo


  
  How do you feel about Broo, bro?
How do you feel about Broo, bro?

Broo actually has the potential to be kind of brilliant: he's a genius who can breathe in space, for a start. However, the main problem with Broo is that a large proportion of fans simply can't stand him, which will probably prove an impassable barrier to his inclusion in future movies.

2. Goldballs

Goldballs: does exactly what he says on the tin

If you thought that 'Goldballs' was just a popular nickname for David Beckham, you're not alone. Goldballs actually features in 85 issues, despite his power being the rather odd ability to fire bouncy golden balls from his body - not much use outside of children's parties, one suspects.

3. Puck


  
  Puck is outta luck for the forseeable future
Puck is outta luck for the forseeable future

There was a lot of talk about Peter Dinklage being cast as Puck, but obviously the character of Bolivar Trask is more appropriate for an actor of Dinklage's talents. Puck, like his Shakespearean namesake, is capricious and jokey, but somewhat at odds with the intense, darker X-Men that the franchise is showing us.

4. Lifeguard

Lifeguard is actually pretty darn cool, having variable powers dictated by whatever is necessary to save her life, or that of others. And y'know, she's a brilliant, glittering, shiny gold. However, we haven't seen her yet and I'm not sure what would bring her to the current team from her native Australia...

5. Doop


  
  What? Not handsome enough for the silver screen?
What? Not handsome enough for the silver screen?

It's kinda self-explanatory why a dude that looks like a giant floating pickle would not make the cut for the big screen! With a copyright-ticklin' resemblance to Slimer and his renowned status as jokey character, it seems unlikely we'll see the little green guy anytime soon.

---------------------------------------------------

6. Dazzler


  
  It's always Disco time with Dazzler
It's always Disco time with Dazzler

The closest we'll come to seeing Dazzler in an X-Men movie is the hilarious April Fools' article claiming that Bryan Singer signed up Lady Gaga for the role. While it would be awesome to see the Queen of Bizarro Pop evolve into her ultimate X-form, I can't see it fitting into the current series...

---------------------------------------------------

7. Beak


  
  Beak's awesome powers are...well...he has a beak?
Beak's awesome powers are...well...he has a beak?

OK, so Beak was almost in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it seems unlikely we'll see him again, unless it's in his slightly more appealing form as Blackwing. I mean...he's a bird that can't fly. There's something cinematically disappointing about a guy whose powers consist of pecking his opponents.

---------------------------------------------------

How about it? Are you desperate for Doop or should these lovable minor X-Men stay put in the comic books?
