X-MEN | What is a Mutant?
Around the world, some children are born with an extra twist to their chromosomes that will endow them with superhuman abilities such as: to fire a beam of force from their eyes, to fly through the air, or to read men's minds. These 'children of the atom' are feared and despised, forced sometimes to resort to desparate actions to defend themselves against an intolerant world. One group of mutants have banded together to show the world that it need not fear their kind. Apart, they are merely curiosities of science, freaks and monsters - but together, united by their shared beliefs, they are more - they are the uncanny X-Men.
Now this team of X-Men faces two of its greatest challenges: accepting a ferocious mutant known as 'Wolverine' into their fold; and battling a mutant capable of bending the forces of magnetism to his will - the deadly Magneto.
