IN ORIGINS


WHO ARE THE NEW MUTANTS?

By Betty Brant

“We are living in the sixth Age of Homo Superior, the Sextant!”

These are the words of Sunspot, leader of the mutant super-powered team, the New Mutants.

Sitting during our interview on the mutant island nation of Krakoa, I am mesmerized by the paradisiacal feel of it all! Lush verdure, breathtaking scenery and the sense of community where these young people, teenagers for the most part, are finally home.

Who are these New Mutants?

The New Mutants: Karma, Wolfsbane, Mondo, Cypher, Mirage, Sunspot, Chamber and Magik.

The New Mutants were originally meant to continue Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters after Xavier’s failure to protect his most beloved proteges, such as Jean Grey who later became the Dark Phoenix and died multiple times. They were a young team, bred by Xavier to hone their powers and integrate into a community.

Things have changed a lot since the 20th century for this group of super-powered beings once regarded as rebels, renegades and outcasts.

Since the modern period, the emergence of Professor Xavier and his X-Men and of Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, came the first wide-scale emergence of mutants on the Earth, as Mirage explains. Then, the mutant population exploded.

Mirage, leads the New Mutants with Sunspot. A mutant with the power to read minds and sense emotions, Mirage detailed her own struggle with the New Mutants, from losing her powers to an Asgardian goddess to being infected by the Transmode Virus which made her feel like a living computer virus!

Since Krakoa, however, everything has changed for the New Mutants. The Sextant, the Sixth Age of mutants has come and Krakoa has become the island nation-state for the mutant population where they feel welcome despite their difference and unique talents.

I left the New Mutants as they embarked on their new top-secret adventure in space. It is a way to continue a long body of work of space travel, missions around the world and yes… community work.
