"Mutant" is the colloquial name for Homo sapiens superior, a subspecies with various superhuman powers.


At first glance, nothing is different about them, seemingly. The only distinction is their amazing superpower granted by a gene known as the "X-gene". While most of them resemble normal humans, there are some that are a bit more bizarre. The point at which the X-gene becomes active, and the level of mutation, varies from each individual. It might be active since birth, or remain dormant until said mutant reaches adolescence or adulthood.
