Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Those Pesky Mutants Edition


I’m not sure how many actual mutants are left in the Marvel Universe (at one point, they claimed 198, which was immediately revised when someone realized there are more Wolverine knockoffs than that, and that the team rosters would have to change eventually), but they’re slowly being supplanted by Inhumans, a phenomenon which many attribute to Marvel not holding the movie rights to the X-Men.  Regardless, in the fifty-odd years since the X-Men first debuted, we’ve seen an awful lot of mutants, and in recent years it has become a running theme that one’s power reflects one’s true inner self, kind of like George RR Martin’s ‘Wild Cards’ novel series.  Of course, this doesn’t always lead to legendary characters, (sorry, Maggott) nor does it make for good super-heroes, but it does lead us to today’s superiorly homogenous query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) won’t be using my go-to mutant, as he originally wasn’t a mutant at all, and I don’t hold with all that retconnin’ nonsense, asking: If you were one of Marvel’s mutants, what power would best fit your personality?
