We have found Magneto. Now we just have to wait a few years to assemble the Brotherhood of Mutants.

Does he always point northward? They didn't mention that.

In all seriousness, I think it's high time we do something about this mutant menace.

Humanity itself is at stake here!

Seriously, I've known people that have something electromechanically weird about them. One guy doesn't have enough 'juice' to activate those touch lamps, fingers wet or dry. He's also got a 'knack' for mechanical things, dunno if it is related or not.

Man, those Terrible Twos. I'm sure he'll grow out of it in time to get his first computer. Just to be on the safe side though he should get a wireless keyboard and mouse and sit on the other side of the room from the hard drive.

This is nothing new. Most non potty-trained toddlers smell just like Nightcrawler when he bamfs. They just can't teleport. Parents often complain that they move fast enough to get into trouble as it is.

I can't wait till the private sector figures out DNA manipulation so we can finally have designer genes.

Gosh, I guess the ability to regualte one's own body tempature within four degrees is just not exciting anymore. I can't set off store alarms unless I actually steal something!

I know one guy who always wears those little static strips, and still messes up a component or something every 3 months or so. Me? No strips, never, and no messed up components, ever, either.

Madame Tetrachromat found in a Cambridge University study.

Basically, a tetrachromat is a person with 4 types of color receptors in the eye instead of the standard 3 (RGB). Color blind people only have 2.

Hey, it might not be as cool as laser-blasting eyes, but it's definately an advantage over the rest of us trichromats.

Too bad it's physically impossible for me to ever develop this nifty mutation. Occurs in gals only.

i know someone who literally can not use computers because her personal electromagnetic field is so strong that she renders them inoperable.
