In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) is at the center of every mutant's problems. He's the driving force behind the giant robots called Setinels. The machines will be used to rid the world of the mutant population. They're such a threat that X-Men from all walks of life will come together to bring Trask down.

In the following clip, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) comes faces to face with Trask on his home turf. Trask is in the middle of a meeting where he attempts to explain his Sentinel program. He gets the shock of his life when he notices a mutant has infiltrated his office. Because of Mystique's shapeshifting powers, she's able to hide in plain sight as one of his guests.

Mystique reveals her identity in a very dramatic and violent way. She singlehandedly subdues Trask's security and his peers. This version of the character is much closer to what we saw in the original X-Men trilogy. She obviously took up martial arts since the last time we saw her. Mystique is no longer an insecure teen ashamed of her true self.

Watch Mystique in action below:

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters May 23.
