Mutant abilities are present because of the X-gene in the body. So, mutant powers are there because of the mutant's physiology. Elixir copied Wolfsbane's son's physiology and change her's accordingly so she can survive the pregnancy. This means, Elixir copied Asgardian DNA and is able to change another person's DNA according to the one he copied. Not to mention, he also has the ability to heal/repair the X-gene (re-unlocking Wolfsbane's mutant abilities). Since mutants are now coming back and the effects of M-day should have been gone, can Elixir now restore power to depowered mutants? Alternatively, can he change up his physiology so he can have any imaginable mutant power? By obtaining a few samples of DNA, can he use those to clone someone? Can his powers affect microorganisms?

If yes are the answers to all of these, then Elixir should really be labeled as an External or a god.

@bababoom: Elixir is an Omega level mutant, so essentially his potential is limitless. So yes, everything that you've stated should in fact be possible with the exception of curing depowered Mutants as iirc it was stated that he can't do anything about that because the X-Gene was done away with Magic...

Although it's good to note that Elixir whilst theoretically should be able to alter at will his own genetic structure, he has always demonstrated issues. Note: His inability to control his 'black form', his difficulties healing (Or escaping comas which are frequent occurrences) and perhaps more poignantly the fact he turned gold in the first place.

Where is he now? He just seemed to drop off the face of the Earth for years it seems

I hope he's being worshipped by his own cult on Genosha and preparing to set something off in the mutant vs human struggle.
