Why is Mystique blue ?

Because some mutant look different when they become mutants.

Why is Nightcrawler blue? Because Mystique is his mother.

@innovated: The only reasonable explanation is that her mutant genes make her blue, without any reasonable explanation. The X-gene is whacky.

lol i get that but how did she get her blue skin

How did you get whatever color skin you have? She was born with it/got it when her mutation activated. No big story or dark origin for it: She just has it.

I don't think there's ever been an explanation... I think it's just blue becuase that's the color of her skin.

I could be wrong, though.

Or innovated is just playing us and the real question is why Dave Cockrum and Chris Claremont chose to make her blue!

From what I gather the melanin in her mutation was blue so that's what she became...Blue. That's also where she gets her power. So its a mixture of the melanin and cells that make her shape shift. So quite literally that melanin change gives her power...one unfortunate side effect is that she is Blue.
