Which Side Will You Choose?

To be a mutant means facing persecution just for existing...

If you were born a mutant which side would u choose to be on?? Would you join the X-Men and fight to defend the human race that hates and fears you??

Would you join the Brotherhood? Would you just go it alone and live in hiding? Or start your own team?

Me myself it is hard to say... I would NOT be happy with defending the human race when I know that a lot of them hate me, but I would not retaliate and develope hatred toward humans either. Decisions decisions, what would you do??

I would choose to live on my own. I wouldn't go into hiding I'd just live as best as I could as a normal person. If I was persecuted I would simply incinerate them and leave no evidence. In this scenario I can generate immense heat and fire.

@Vortex13: well said!!! LOL i lean more toward that as well, sometimes all u do is LIVE

This.

@InnerVenom123: No incineration for you to partake in though. =(

@Vortex13: I'd have symbiote-knockoff powers... so I get to eat faces or something.

Posted by Vortex13

@InnerVenom123: That'll do!

Depends on the powerset I have. If it's something lame and easily concealed, I live on my own as a normal person. If it's something that couldn't be hidden (i.e. Blue fur), I guess I'll be an X-Man. If my powerset is useful and easily concealed, I'd try to be a part of any other team that's not the X-Men or Brotherhood.

pffft....Brotherhood, of course I'm assuming we're talking more useful versions of the Brothehood, like in the Ultimate Universe or the movies
 
I could give you a laundry list of reasons

Posted by StormyWeather

@Gambit1024: understandable, hard to hide certain physical traits that identify u as a mutant

Posted by StormyWeather

@cattlebattle: well gimme some of those reasons lol

Become a Hero 1st, then be all "By the way, I'm a Mutant"

Then people would be like, "Oh THAT guy's a Mutant? They can't be so bad..."

Posted by Onihana

It would depend on what mutation I had. If it wasn't worth a damn, Hide away. If it was useful the X-men.

Posted by StormyWeather

@CptPanda29: Lol u think so?

Edited by time

I think it would depend on what powers I had or what I look looked like. If I look like Beast or Nightcrawler and face that type of hatred from humans. I would join the brotherhood. If I was telepath and look normal. I would follow in Charles footsteps, try help people.

@StormyWeather: Really I think the Mutant phobia thing is overplayed, there's more powerful forces in the Marvel U. If anything Civil War etc should have ended hero activity outright...

Posted by TheCannon

I would join the Brotherhood. Mankind will never accept mutants, so we need to prepare ourselves for the upcoming war.

Posted by KDarkholme

I would try my best to live a normal life or try being a liason for the X-Men but not fully staying with them where they are living.

The side of getting that pesky X-gene nixed by Scarlet Witch. I'm sick of that perverted Cerebro thing " watching " my DNA (and the heavy breathing some psychic making in my thoughts, and Xavier's rubber pants). I have enough Apple products that watch me in other ways as it is. I just want to eat my cereal and watch Powerpuff Girls in peace, puh-leaze!

I would open a cool detective agency in New York and have noir-esque adventures with a small bad of like-minded, and often rather sexy mutants. I would generally manage to avoid the constant soap-opera drama of the wider mutant / superhero community. The agency would be called something like X Vector or Factor X.

I wanna be Madrox!!!

Posted by Rickbarry

I suppose I'd choose Xavier. The brotherhood are cool in every way save for Magneto wanting to kill people.

Posted by spystreak

I wouldn't choose either sides I'm joining with Sinister and geting even more mutant powers through genetic manipulation :P

Posted by SoA

ill try to be on my own , the x-men are divided , when is the last the brotherhood was heard from? . im safer on my own lol

Posted by Nerx

Brotherhood of Mutants

Posted by StormyWeather

@CptPanda29: thats very very true!!

Posted by Steps

Hmm... since some people choose to claim their own mutant power I will add that since in this scenario my mutant power is to split myself into two beings one good, one bad, so that whoever wins I win. Unless mutant haters win then I lose.

Posted by StormyWeather

@spystreak: lmao

@Daycrawler: interesting

@KDarkholme: i thought about that too

Posted by The Stegman

Neither, I'd live on my own and try not to draw too much attention to myself

Chillax on Utopia and support Cyke's cause

Posted by WarMachineMarkV

- If my situation and power set allowed me to make it alone I would stay to the sidelines for now, the X-Men are divided and being run like Enron. Unless I'm a powerhouse my presence is not going to tilt the advantage to any meaningful amount so it is of little consequence in the big picture.

- If forced to pick a side I would stay at the school not because of agreeing with Logan over Scott, but it is a lesser target for the moment. I'm not thrilled with any of the choices available at the moment, but if I have to choose it sadly is the best option for now.

- I would hope to be able to gain a position of some influence to get all the heads back at the table and make some lemonade out of all the lemons

Posted by ChocolateFrogs

I'd definitely want to able to use my powers, so I'd team up with people like me--those with powers who are working on not hiding.

Posted by karetaker

@StormyWeather: i would build my own brotherhood up. same views as magneto pretty much

Posted by StormyWeather

@Steps: very interesting! i like that :-)

Posted by StormyWeather

@karetaker: i see, understandable

@WarMachineMarkV: right! i think my decision would be based on my power set... if i had to choose i'd want to me telekinetic, telepathic, or have Storm's abilities (seeing as shes my favorite character), but i think being a telepath would make things easier to live on my own...u can easily conceal yourself

Thunderbolts, why do mutants only get to teams to pick from only these two teams, if the X-men want equality, why are they pretty much cornering the market ?

Why not join the Avengers ?

And vice versa ? someone who isn't a mutant or has any powers join the x-men, like a Batman type street guy that supports mutants ????? XD

I'd join the x-men, for the sake of this thread.

Technically both Prodigy and Dr. Rao fit the bill of no powers but are helping the X-men.

Posted by StormyWeather

@Fuchsia_Nightingale: well u can join with whoever u want, and i did mention starting ur own team lol

Posted by Scribbler

Such a complex question! I'd probably do my own thing for a while, and then end up joining/supporting Xavier. =D

Posted by Blood1991

X-Men it may seem like a worthless cause, but I could never allow myself to be as cruel as the people persecuting me.

Posted by Mosley

I'd start my own team comprised of the most powerful mutants alive

Join the X-Men. I want to enjoy life and have an adventure with the x-men like Storm, Wolverine , Hollow, JUbilee, etc

I doubt the X-Men would let someone like you join.

I would choose what would be best for my family as a whole. Whatever that may be.

I don't have the heart of a villain.

and I know why Professor X created the school and the X-Men.

I'd allow the X-Men to train me then go my own way.

@Fuchsia_Nightingale: u don't have to join up with X-Men or Brotherhood, those r just examples, seeing as mutants r mainly in the X-MEN COMICS
