X-Men: The Last Stand
Artie Maddicks is a student in the Xavier Institute and a mutant who has a blue-forked tongue.
Artie Maddicks is one of the several students in the Xavier Institute. He participates to the school trip at the Natural History Museum and in there he mocks a girl with his blue forked tongue. He's one of the students kidnapped by William Stryker's men, and he's later saved by Nightcrawler. He's brought out the base by Wolverine, and so he assists to the dialogue between the latter and Stryker, chained by Magneto and left to die. When Wolverine states that he's on the young mutants side and turns his shoulder to Stryker, Artie once again mocks Stryker showing his tongue.
To be added
Artie is quite a troublesome child, as demonstrated by Storm's irritation in keeping scolding him.
He doesn't have any visible powers, apart from his blue, forked tongue, which he keeps showing to anyone annoying him.

Behind the scenes
- Artie's only dialogue is in a deleted scene of X2 when he states, I think I'm gonna be sick. He then vomits in front of the other students and they are disgusted as Nightcrawler watches.
- In the comics, Artie's phisical mutations are much more visible, making him look similar to Morlocks' Leech and he has telepathic powers.
