State of the Mutant World -- Part 5, with a complete list for you

 

--Part 5

When I was talking with Clayton Crain (X-Force artist) I mentioned what I call the Yost contradiction to him.   His take on it was interesting.   He said, “Well isn’t it kinda nice to see that Cyclops doesn’t know everything.”    I thought that was a decent take on it.   I still think it may be more of a problem of creators and editors across the board not communicating well on the subject.   Then it occurred to me what if it was something else all together.

What if we are all classifying them incorrectly?   Could it be that many of these people we have had classified as mutants for so long in our minds and in Marvel history are not mutants?   This brings up so many more possibilities so I started to examine things that could be factors in this situation.

Are the mutants that were repowered no longer mutants?   Technically a human powered by Terrigan Mists would be an Inhuman.   Not a mutant.   Someone given powers artificially is usually classified as a mutate.   What is Xavier then?   The defining fact that we have always known is the presence of the X-factor gene in the DNA.   Beast said that he couldn’t reboot it.   High Evolutionary was supposedly successful in helping Magneto using a Celestial.   Apocalypse has Celestial technology and was responsible for almost half that part of the list.

Now we have the Cloak and Dagger Question.   Who is misclassified by default?   Not all of these mutants are on Utopia.   Not all of them constantly interact with the X-Men.   I guess we should have Dr. Nemesis take a look at their DNA and let us know what is what Maury Poulvich style.    “Who dat baby daddy?”

There is also the question about temporally displaced characters and those from separate realities and times.   Do they count?   This wouldn’t mess up the list too much but could put some in question.   Did Blink go back out of reality with Lois at the end of Necrosha?   She could have so she wouldn’t show up.   Colossus’ brother certainly would be in that same boat.   Are there many that can mask themselves from Cerebra?   That could also be part of this category.   I don’t think many of the people on that list are powerful enough.   Especially when powered by the Cuckoos.  

We saw the blips show up from the techno-zombies.   Are some of them still around?   If they had the X-factor they would have to show up.   We were told some people would stay back.   I certainly hope that we got a little more than Cypher and Proteus.   That is hardly balance in the universe of good and evil.

I’m going to say that even if you eliminate most of the possibilities that there have to be more.  We don’t know much about the origins of Huber, Task Master, or Echo.   They could end up being mutants as well.   The unconfirmed list is too long.   That list doesn’t include the new kids coming up in Avengers Academy in a couple months.   Also they talk about Dr. Reyes but we haven’t seen her.

I guess my imaginary family is a little messed up right now.   But everything should be on the same page soon and I will continue to keep track of them.   Who knows what the state of the mutant race will be in 4 more years?   I’m just glad that I will be along for the ride.

  198 was never an accurate title.  It was acknowledged at the time that the number was used as an estimate.    
 
Now, for the love of God, please stop making these Blog Posts with ridiculously long lists of mutants.

HA!  
 
A tremendous undertaking, and interesting thoughts and possibilities.  Just remember this, clarity and comics don't mix well together.

Well my rant was really not about the 198.  It was about the 181 that they are talking about now.  The lists are necessary to convey the point xerox.  I thought it was my blog?  If there is a way to do a cut like LJ has someone shoe me how to hide the lists behind a cut. I'll be glad to do that.
