X-Men: Can You Identify All These Newer Mutants?
Back in 1963, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby launched the first issue of X-Men and kicked off the world of mutants in Marvel Comics. Long used to examine social and cultural oppression, the mutants who made up the X-Men and other factions have also offered a unique way to explore the idea of superpowers. And unlike many other heroes and villains, the mutants also often came equipped with unfortunate physical attributes or abilities they couldn’t control. As such, writers were able to explore a darker side of being granted special powers, and they’ve continued doing so for decades since the X-Men’s debut.
Thanks to countless movies, TV shows, and comics, many fans are familiar with the stalwart mutants that were introduced in the previous century. Since the new millennium, however, a whole new batch of mutants have popped up, with looks and powers unlike anything seen before. Can you put your comic book knowledge to the test and name all of these newer mutants?
