I’ve been reading comics now for decades, and one of the trends I thought would last forever was the popularity of comics featuring mutants. However, even I’m surprised at how quickly the mutants have faded away in the last couple of years. Here’s what I think happened!

We all know everyone is special – a unique snow flake that has no companion (except for the twins).Â The DC Universe has a bunch of teenagers from the future who use their unique talents to save the universe, while Marvel 616 has a bunch of mutants who band together to save the universe.Â They are in no way alike – really.Â Trust us, we’ve got an uber-nerd working on this site, and he’ll tell you. But even if they were remotely alike, and we could shape the universe to put the Legion of Super-Heroes and the X-Men on a

This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew is taking a peek at Grant Morrison’s run on the New X-Men series. From Amazon.com Sixteen million mutants dead – and that was just the beginning! In one bold stroke, writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman) propelled the X-Men into the 21st century, masterminding a challenging new direction for Marvel’s mutant heroes that began with the destruction of Genosha and never let up. Regarded as the most innovative thinker of the current comic-book renaissance, Morrison proceeded to turn the mutant-hero genre on its ear. Gone were the gaudy spandex
With all the shakeup going on with the one time hit Heroes, NBC has re-upped Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski as writers for the series.Â One wonders if they’ll be the ones penning the potential lesbian romance in the show, or if they’ll proceed to lead the mutants those with powers further down the road to telling an interesting story that will capture the magic of the first season. One thing we do know is Pokaski will be replacing Greg Beeman as the producer for the fourth season. via Variety
You’ve already seen young Cyclops in the trailer to May’s Wolverine movie, and you may be seeing more of him in the near future (providing he doesn’t agree to appear in a DC Comics movie).Â In an interview with Fox Movie Channel, franchise producer Lauren Shuler did say the X-Men: First Class movie was on the way and would be a flashback flick featuring the young versions of the mutants we’ve all come to love. It is the first class of Xavier’s school, way back when, so it’s young Scott, young Jean, young Beast and that’ll be really fun… I
NBC has announced it has ordered another 18-20 episodes Heroes.Â While the show has stumbled a bit this season as far as ratings go, it is tied with The Office as the network’s top rated series for the 18-49 crowd. What do you want to see in season 4?Â The introduction of a character with magical powers that turns back time to a point where none of the mutants Heroes exist?Â Giant robots programmed by the gov’ment that are released into society to hunt down those mutants Heroes who haven’t registered?Â Or maybe the mutants Heroes will have some infighting
The Humanity NOW! organization is really causing grief for the mutants of the world, and with the hammer coming down, things don’t look too good.Â Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of The Uncanny X-Men #506 by Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson.
Despite the Ultimatum banner, there’s no Ultimatum story here (sorta) If readers were wondering how Ultimate Spider-Man would make the transition from the Return of Gwen Stacy story last issue, into the Ultimatum story line this issue, fear not, as nothing that takes place in Ultimatum appears in this issue.Â Instead, this issue serves as a lead up to the crossover series, even though the crossover series has already begun.Â Ah mega-events!Â You gotta love â€˜em!
They meddled in Godâ€™s domain I love how Marvel introduced the Watchers into the Ultimate Universe.Â Throughout the five issue run of Ultimate Origins, they have been the silent central characters who bare witness to all the key moments in this universeâ€™s history.Â And now that this prequel to Ultimatum is over, it suddenly clicks.Â Beware! Major Spoilers of Ultimate Origins #5 ahead!
