I think they shouldn't be changed to human because they were born mutant.

So then she she should be classified British like it says in most of her descriptions in the handbooks and encyclopedias.

How long do you guys think they're gonna stay depowered for? Quicksilver is back, so there's no telling who's next.

I would assume none of the New Warriors are getting their powers back.

There's quite a few who is repowered already:

Abyss
Fatale
Feral
Gazer
Magneto
Mulholland
Polaris
Professor X
Quicksilver
Reaper
Sunfire
Thornn
Wild Child

Makes you wonder what the point is.

More than anything, I really dislike the concept of "depowered mutants" or ex-mutants or whatever.

I think the magical aspect of it really takes away from the analogy to real-life minorities.

I like a lot of depowered characters (Wind Dancer! Scanner! Rictor!) but I would be fine if the depowered mutants were shunned off into another dimension for the sake of the mutant/X-Men concept.  Or at least just keep a handful of the few "ex-mutants" who've managed to stay relevant because at this point undoing Decimation seems just as tedious as keeping up with this endangered species by magic nonsense.
