A mutant by any other name. - longthorn
Great story with an interesting revisal of fortunes for Peter Parker. I however want to ask all who read this the question as a comic reader I have had for years and have yet to find any true answer besides hair splitting answers. What is the real difference between a Mutant and what Spiderman is? The truth is; anyone changed by some source into something else like Spiderman is a mutation from the norm. Further how dose those in the Marvel comic world really see the difference? If they hate or fear mutants for their abilities, what difference is if they got their powers at birth or thirteen? To make things more confusing Marvel recently caused an event that created new mutants. Some of these supposed new mutants are in their thirties when the power manifests. How is this any different? To me this goes against everything marvel has said to that point on what a mutant and what a non-mutant super hero is. Therefore, if the new definition takes the idea of being born out of the factors then I ask you what is a real Mutant. Marvel built the idea of the mutants being separate from the other heroes on a hill of sand as it is and the footing of making difference is getting harder to see. Personally, I believe in the real world there may be a small amount of people who feared the beings with powers, but more so most would embrace them like Hollywood actors or rock stars in the real world. I give this comic three stars for showing how silly the marvel universe if for making such strange difference seem so important.
