    Default Give mutants regular origins

    It’s known that Stan Lee originally came up with mutants, so that he wouldn’t have to put so much thought into origin stories. “How do they have powers?” “They just do!”

    If Lee, Kirby, and whoever didn’t come up with the concept of mutants, what origin stories would they have had?

    For the O5, here’s what I’ve come up with:

    Cyclops: His father was space mercenary and his mother was an alien. The plane crash that his family apparently died in was actually a space ship. The injury he got from the crash prevents him from shutting off his eye beams.

    Angel: Warren was sick as a boy, so his mother’s prayers caused an angel to take pity on him and make him a pseudo-angel.

    Beast: Being raised near a radiation plant caused him to develop unnaturally large limbs.

    Marvel Girl: Jean was caught in a strange lightstorm(which will later be identified as the Phoenix Force) which raises her mental acuity to the point where she develops psychic powers.


    Really nothing much has been changed. I just thought that it’d be a fun concept.

    That kind of defeats the entire identity of being mutant in the first place though doesn't it? What makes mutants unique is that they're born with these powers, a fact that links directly with how they are perceived by the rest of society and the mutant metaphor in general. Besides most mutant do have an origin story but they tend to be more focused on how their powers manifested rather than how they were created in the first place.

    scott summers is a street orphan who is kidnapped by AIM to use a visor that allows the user to view into a variety of different dimensions

    scott is the 74th homeless child this experiment has been done with because they keep having fatal seizures after a few hours

    during scott's session, the new dimension he looks at causes him to go mad, remove his visor, run away from AIM, and cut out his eyes with a shard of broken glass

    when aim finds him to silence him, his eyes have been replaced with crimson voids that project uncontrollable red tendrils of force that decimate everything around him

    scrambling around as he obliterates everything, scott trips over the experimental visor that he then puts on again, now allowing him to contain his energy, but preventing him from seeing anything but red shapes of different shades dependent on an object's temperature

    leaving AIM in tatters, scotty boy runs away, his vision impaired, but capable of wiping out everything around him

    Scott has a very detailed movie-length origin

    Nightcrawler is the son of a demon already so just make him that.

    Angel got bitten by a radioactive pigeon.

    Magik was a natural disciple of Dr. Strange after he rescued her from limbo.

    That might’ve been just a rumor.
