Now we all know that Mystique can change into any person, including clothing. Well, let's say she went out to dinner only appearing to be wearing clothes, though she really isn't. What if the host asked if he could have her coat? Would she be able to take it off, even if it is part of her body?
no she wouldnt be able to, when she shapeshift its her body it would be like taking her finger off but her jacket would be like ripping her skin off. just cause morph can do it which its HIS mutaion doesnt mean every shapeshifter can do it
her clothes has to be touching her. in the limited series the glass she made stayed attached to her. it didnt come off. she can make all kind of extra stuff such as glassess. but all of it is part of her skin so she wouldnt be able to pull it off. and madrox is a DIFFERENT mutant with DIFFERENT powers, he actually take the cells of the clothes and make another duplicating the cells. mystique take the cells she have and turn them into something different, not make more
Isn't it the same with Mr. Sinister & Clayface? If the "clothing" was removed, would it turn to flesh? Would it weaken the body? Would it slide off the rack when the waiter's back was turned & crawl back to reform itself with the body? If she made a pair of sunglasses & you took them off, would it hurt like hell?
To be honest, I don't think it's something covered consistently in the comics. In some versions I've seen of her she can take clothes she created off (the explanation being that for her it's just like a snake shedding skin). This seems the most realistic to me as there are many situations where she'd be forced to remove clothing in public and having that as part of her ability makes sense. However, other versions I've read where she would wear real clothes and only shape-shift her body (at least in situations where she knew ahead of time she might need to remove a part of her clothing).
