For every great hero, there must be a great villain. And for every great group of good guys, there should be a threat that can nearly match them. The X-Men are one of the most beloved groups in comics, fighting to protect those in need while also trying to master their own powers, and they need villains who can give them a serious challenge. Look no further than Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, created as the Master of Magnetism's direct response to Charles Xavier's do-gooder student body.

The Brotherhood has been the foil to the X-Men from almost very beginning, first appearing in Uncanny X-Men #4 in 1964. While the original group was mostly henchmen to aide in Magneto’s schemes for world domination, the Brotherhood has evolved over the years, becoming a terrorist group with its own mutant ideology, led by a succession of some of Marvel's best mutant baddies.

There have been several iconic characters on the roster over the years, starting with the initial line-up of Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Mastermind, and Toad, and later including Rogue, Mystique, Destiny, Blob, Pyro, Avalanche, Sabertooth, Havok, Exodus, Sunspot, Daken, and Lady Deathstrike. With so many great characters to choose from, it’s no wonder people would want cosplay these powerful mutants at conventions and for photo shoots

The cosplayers we've assembled here bring the might of the Brotherhood to life in creative and fantastic ways. They may be bad, but they can still look good. These are the best Brotherhood of Mutants cosplays.
