Tue May 27 2003 13:24 X-Men Question: I don't know anything about the X-Men or comics in general, so I want to know from you how the X-Men feel about people, like polydactyls or albinos, who are mutants but whose mutations don't confer upon them any special abilities. Do they "count" as mutants? Are they despised? Protected? Not worth caring about? How do normal humans in the X-Men universe feel about them? Is the whole idea unexplored territory because it's too boring to make it into a comic book?
