  Mutant (fictional) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With most mutant powers manifesting at puberty and the large number of young mutants who are rejected by their families, mutation parallels the realization that many young gay people have of their homosexuality in their teen years and the rejection and ostracization from family they experience.
Morrison also introduced the idea of the growing mutant youth population developing a subculture with mutant bands and fashions, and the subsequent adoption of that subculture by rebellious non-mutant youth, the latter being similar to the concept of a wigger.
Mutants such as the Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver for example, who incidentally are Magneto's children, haven't received the same treatment as other mutants have by the majority of the ordinary human population.

 Mutant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In an organism or individual, the new character or trait may or may not be trivial, may occasionally be beneficial, but will usually result in either a genetic disorder or have no phenotypic effect whatsoever.
Another unusual mutant is the "chimera", with two sets of DNA; during development, the egg splits in two and merges again.
This may involve the use of a random genetic screen, a specific 'gene knockout' or transgenesis (the transfer of genetic material from one organism to another).

 Mutant - Marvel Universe
Although mutant powers vary greatly, the most common mutant powers are: telepathy, flight, the ability to project energy, an accelerated healing factor, and enhanced strength, agility or senses.
Mutants are supposedly the next stage in human evolution and are often called "homo superior" (Homo sapiens superior) as opposed to "homo sapiens" (Homo sapiens sapiens), althought the supervillain Vargas who also seems to be born with his powers (even if he lacks the mutant gene) claims to be a representative of the Homo superior.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) are a fictional group of four anthropomorphic turtle brothers, who, as one might infer from the name, are also teenagers, mutants and ninjas.

The first film, simply titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, closely follows the Eastman and Laird original graphic novels, with a little of the fun of the cartoons; it is one of the top-grossing independent films ever made in America.

Each player picks a mutant power for his Claydonian, but does not have to declare it to the other players until the first time it is successfully used.
Mutant powers that affect the Claydonian's physical body (like Bite, Bowl or Poke) often do damage "based on appearance." This means that the players and/or the Clay Master decide on just how bad the attack looks, and assign damage accordingly.
While a Twisted Mutant could conceivably also be an Anti-Mutant, and a victorious Anti-Mutant is free to take an extra mutation, an Anti-Mutant may NEVER have the mutation Frenzy.

 Mutant Message from Forever - Marlo Morgan - 1998
While the second book was clearly labeled fictional the author made claims about the involvement of Aborigines in writing of this book that are challenged and considered lies by many Aborigines.
I believe that it is despising to publish a book as "real and factual account" when in reality it is fictional as she did with her first book.
She finds ways to help her race and amongst other things starts a program to try to bring Aborigines from abroad back to Austrialia, for US Aboriginal prisoners to be brought back to Austrialia and judged by an Austrialian tribal court.

She is a clone of Wolverine and, with the publication of select issues of NYX and Uncanny X-Men by Marvel Comics in 2004, the character was brought into the regular Marvel Universe, much like the character Harley Quinn of DC Comics or Marvel's own Firestar.
Twenty-two times their attempts were unsuccessful; the sample's Y chromosome was too severely damaged to create a viable clone, and the embryos perished before reaching the first month of development.
I theorized that Weapon X was not just a mutant but also the first of a new species.

 Mutant New Age Messages
In 1953, French author Jean Giono wrote a totally fictional short story; but it was written in a very realistic style, as if it were a true narrative.
Eventually, to correct this misimpression (and maybe to save himself from the thousands of inquiries from people wanting to visit this miraculous region), the author wrote a letter to a French newspaper, declaring his innocence of any deception, that he was a writer of fiction, and had never represented his story as anything else.
Our path through life is so complex and paradoxical that even a fictional book, a poisonous drug, a severe accident, or encounter with a fake guru could become a positive transformative event.

A young mutant has to decide between duty and domesticity in Marc Bilgrey's "Lucky Guesses." In "Mutant Mother from Hell," by David Bischoff, a young man with too many mutations to list needs to confront a mom with vile plans for his family jewels.
There are also a couple of stories about mutants who live cloistered in small communities, and mutants who consider themselves alone in the world, who, in the last scene, hook up with attractive partners who, surprise, turn out to be a mutants, too.
Janet Berliner’s "Interview with a Mutant" is another memorable character study, this one of a protagonist driven by compassion and duty instead.

 Amazon.ca: Mutant Message Down Under: Books: Marlo Morgan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Morgan's much-hyped first novel, a fictionalized account of a "walkabout" she took in the Outback with a group of Aborigines, gains from the use of authentic detail, although the storytelling is hindered by the author's heavy New Age agenda and incessant cultural proselytizing.
Morgan has called her narrative a work of fiction to protect the identities of her Aboriginal guides, to conceal the locations of sacred places, and to let readers interpret her tale as they see fit.
Morgan states that this is a work of fiction, but makes it clear that she is casting it in a fictional format to protect the identity of the aboriginal tribe that chose her to transmit this sublime message, and that in fact this is a true story.

It is a world in which the US has invented a fictional enemy that has generated a reality it will not be able to defeat and which may well drive it, cornered, into the mad frustration of a global war.
When the world’s most powerful people meet amid such tight security and utter secrecy, when their meetings are not allowed to be covered by the media, and when their bodyguards’ authority overrides that of the police of the countries that host their meetings—something odd, perhaps something very sinister--is going on.

The genre of speculative fiction includes the subgenre of fictitious alternative history, set in worlds in which history has diverged from history as it actually happened.
The basic rules provide for characters and settings that could be expected to appear in the "Wild West" genre of movies and pulp fiction, and most of the in-game action is presumed to occur in the wild frontiers of the American West, or in barely-tamed frontier towns like Tombstone, Arizona or Dodge City, Kansas.
Non-player characters populate the fictional world of the game - from the friendly innkeeper in a medieval fantasy game to a taxi driver or a netrunner (computer hacker) in a contemporay or futuristic game.

This short brings us the fictional story behind the second greatest story of all time...

In much the same way that Free Enterprise was riddled with sly in-jokes to science fiction greats that both dedicated fans and newcomers could appreciate, this short is packed with references to the Holy Trilogy that will have Wookies (from Endor) leaping up and down in gleeful rapture.
