    Default If you were a mutant with a very very crappy superpower, what would you do?

    You're a typical John/Jane Doe when suddenly, you discover a shocking truth: you're a mutant! It all sounds nice until you realize how worthless your superpower is. You can literally put cold cream in your coffee without lowering it's temperature. Despite this incredibly terrible and ridiculously useless power, that cannot be used offensively or defensively, you still get your fair share of anti-mutants hatred: you loss your job, peoples can't help starring at you like the freaky mutie that you are (even though your power is really crappy), your dog walks away, and you break your phone's screen.

    People wants you dead and you've noticed a odd bunch of people hanging more often around your house. They have their hoodies on and look real mean. Sometimes, they kick down your garbage can and leave rubbish everywhere!

    With such misfortunes, what would you do? Where would you go? Reclaim your birthright and move to Krakoa? (even though you'd be useless and unable to fight, although you could maybe learn?) Move to another city and pray that no one will notice and hope you won't be attacked by sentinels?

    Tl:dr - - > So basically, you're a terribly crappy mutant with no useful power whatsoever and people still hate you and want you harm. What do you do?

    Go to Krakoa. Why would any alternative be better for my life?

    What i’d actually do depends on the power. Crappy doesn’t mean not useful.

    I’d avoid Krakoa like the plague. I don’t do Cults.

    Well, you can put cold cream in your coffee without lowering its temperature. It's as useful as it gets.

    Crappy for me would equate to not viable with life or impeding your daily acts of living like having deformed respiratory system meaning you actually would have been better of without the x-gene.

    If its like floating paper clips crappy I'd still consider that a bonus

    With that talent I'd be the most in-demand barista on Krakoa. That's genuine job security.

    Move someplace people haven't seen my power & simply not use it. Unless it's something physical that can't be hidden. In which case, go into seclusion mode AMAP or join Krakoa.

    I actually do that myself now. I don't want people teasing or pestering me about something & it can be hidden, that's what I do. Then outside of needed shopping & work, I go into seclusion mode & avoid the Hell out of people, who I hate dealing with. lol Just my luck I got a job where even if quarantine happened, it wouldn't be closed as it's a necessary place.

    So, something different about yourself you hate. Hide it or yourself if and whenever possible. Advice to be sewn on a pillow. LMAO

    Honestly I have been waiting for a story about a mutant with crappy mutant power that learns magic instead to defend him/her self cause that's what I'd do. That or force Forge to make me some body armor to fight in.

    My main concern about moving Krakoa would be the climate. Iím not one for the tropics, itís not really my thing. But if thereís a part of Krakoa that emulates West Coast weather ó Washington to NorCal, preferably ó Iíd be good.
