What is a Mutant?

Mutation. It is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, normally taking thousands and thousands or years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

Can you tell what a MUTANT is? According to the Oxford English Dictionary, itís an individual organism or new genetic character arising or resulting from mutation. According to the newspapers, itís a super-powered sociopath, hell-bent on nothing less than the absolute destruction of the human race. The truth, like most things, lies somewhere in the middle. My own definition of that six-letter word is; just an ordinary person with an extraordinary talent Why, we have these gifts, is impossible to say. Speculation ranges from holes in the Ozone layer, to nature preparing us for life in the third millennium, but no one really knows the answer. All we know is that these talents make us different, and those differences make people nervous in these strange, uncertain times.
