How does a gene mutation allow you to teleport, control the weather or fire lasers from your eyes? Am I missing something here?

Last time I checked, gene mutation doesn't work like that :hmm:

Maybe it could result in an extra toe or something, but I doubt gene mutation allows you to bend the laws of physics.

I like X-Men, though :cat:

P.S. Double posted again, apparently, very sorry. I beg your pardon, thank you.

And men can't fly. And radiation just not turn us into giant green monsters. Etc.

I think we are all aware this is unrealistic....

X-Men was a comic book series before it was a film.

As with anything fiction, you're expected to suspend your belief in reality and enter a world where things are different. No spider bite will cause a person to spin webs like spiders do, yet we accept the existence of a comic book super hero like Spiderman.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I agree, but Spiderman on the other hand is perfect science.

Now if only I could find me a radioactive spider to prove it!  :P

We know comics are comics just like superman and spiderman, and we also know that it is not reality.

Surely, you dont belive that someone from an unknown planet can come and save the world do you?
