Should Thanos be put on a list of mutants?

#1 Edited by cennobite (365 posts) - - Show Bio

Since Thanos is a mutant Eternal, and the Eternal's are just an off shot of humans, should Thanos be put on a list of mutants with Cyclops and Wolverine and all the rest. Like Namor is on the list and he is a mutant Atlantean/Human hybrid.

No I don't think so. I think the Eternals are so much different then Humanity that they shouldn't be compared. You can technically call Thanos a mutant because of his Deviant genes, but I would classify him as a Deviant before I would a mutant.
 
I also never understood what makes Namor a mutant, is it because he's an Atlantian/Human?

doesn't that make Namor a hybrid, not a mutant?

@jloneblackheart: That's what I mean, if anything he is a hybrid not a mutant, but I know people have referred to him as a mutant. I just never saw any type of mutant powers.

I think Namor was classified as a mutant because he had all of the basic Atlantean abilities but enhanced plus had the wings on his feet, the ability to communicate with animals and the ability to mimic the abilities of sea life.

Namor is a mutant but Thanos is not.

Thanos is a "mutated " Titan of birth but by interference. So he is more of an experiment gone great.

The Celestials made the original Eternals found on Earth

personally i dont think so. in Marvel im pretty sure mutants contain an active x-gene,
and Thanos does not, much less he doesnt even have an Earthlings biology. the term
mutant itself can be used in a few ways, and i think that Thanos has been called a mutant, 
but it wasnt as a classification of the mutant race.

actually, i cant say i agree with myself. he may be. he's been called a mutant by the way that he
is a mutation of his own race, and mutants arent actually exclusive to humans. the mutant Skrull sect
and whale would be prime examples.
