A generation of genetically-modified 'X-Men' superhumans could be among us by 2045, a Ministry of Defence think tank has said.

Advancements in gene technology could help humans gain mutant powers such as the likes of Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm in the popular comic book and movie series, it has been reported.

The MoD's Development Concepts and Doctrine Centre warn however that 'genetic inequality' could result from advancements in biology being unequally shared across society.

I'll get ready to hate and fear them.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

knowing my luck, i'd end up with a really lame superpower, like the ability to smell of cabbage, or be able to tell the size of someone's feet by looking inside their shoes.
probably better than my current superpower of 'psychotic woman magnet' though....

How can gene technology help us to become like Storm? Weather control, seriously?

Well ok, we can play X-Men, but only if I can be Gambit! ^_^

I'd choose the Cyborg Ninja style of Metal Gear.

My User Name is a loving memory of how much I want to know about the worlds secrets, that I forgot to look up the definition of "skeptical" before I made my account.

deus ex featured cybernetic augmentation, not genetic manipulation, but on the other hand, who wants to look like something the umbrella corporation made....?

If you get the ability to smell of cabbage power,dont think you will have to worry about being the psychotic woman magnet anymore :lol: Thanks for the laugh couldnt stop for about 5 min hahaha.

I'm pretty sure there are enough who'd be up for it. Wouldn't surprise me the least.

Similar article, but more along the lines of Deus Ex (and probably a bit more realistic than 'X-Men powers').
