Marvel invites you to a Super Marriage

Hello again, fellow comic readers!

This week’s new comic Wednesday pick is Marvel Comics’ “Astonishing X-Men #50,”  a book that promises to generate a bit of controversy.

Spoiler alert! If you don’t want to know the “big deal” about this book, stop reading now and skip to the lower part of the post to see the list of books coming out this week.

Marvel Comics’ mutant character Northstar has not often been a headliner. If all you know about the X-Men is what you've seen in movies starring Hugh Jackman, then you likely don’t know him at all.

That changes with this week's “Astonishing X-Men #50” when Northstar takes center stage and prepares to go from one of the first openly gay superheroes in comics to the first married gay hero at Marvel. That's if his paramour and manager Kyle says yes, of course.

Northstar has had a tumultuous history. He starred in “Alpha Flight,” a long-running and well-remembered series for Marvel in the 80s and 90s, but his star fell not long after he came out as a gay man.

At the time his coming out was a huge development, but since then it has been ignored, played up for positive effect or played almost for laughs, such as a brief period where Northstar was retroactively declared to be an actual fairy. (Seriously, this is a storyline in a comic book you can own.)

“Astonishing X-Men #50” is an easy jumping on point for new readers of the line and has the added bonus of featuring Northstar, an X-Men character that I personally think is great.

He promotes AIDS awareness and mental health, two issues dear to his heart thanks to obstacles faced by his adopted daughter and his sister, respectively.

Earlier this year Archie comics had a same-sex wedding in its books that got a lot of press, but this is the first time a superhero is tying the knot.

I asked Marjorie Liu, the writer of this issue, if the controversy surrounding the Archie marriage figured into the storyline of this book.

“This is a love story and not a political statement,” Liu said. “Gay marriage is legal in New York state, and some of the X-Men who live there just happen to be gay. If they want to get married – well, why not? Not everyone will agree or be happy about it (in our book, and in real life), but that doesn't mean we shouldn't tackle those stories with passion and empathy for both sides.”

Conor Kilpatrick of iFanboy.com believes the issue is a perfect fit for Marvel: “The X-Men have been, from the beginning, an allegory for civil rights, so it makes sense that in a time when gay rights is such a front-burner issue in American society that Marvel Comics would face it head-on with their X-Men characters.”

Marvel Comics first rose to prominence and popularity in the 1960s by more accurately and relevantly reflecting the issues of the day in its stories compared to its competition, DC Comics, so it's no surprise that in 2012 Marvel is taking on the issue of gay marriage.

Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics, agrees that this is a natural story for Marvel to tell.

“Marvel Comics are best when they respond to developments in the real world,” he said. “When gay marriage became legal in New York state, it raised a question: Since most of our heroes reside in that state, how would Northstar, the first openly gay character in comics, respond to this development? Would it change his long-term relationship with his partner, Kyle?”

Of course, this weekend at the KAPOW! comic book convention in England, DC Comics co-publisher Dan Didio announced that it would reveal a long-time character to be gay.

Daniel Dean, of Titan Games and Comics in Smyrna, Georgia, says comic readers should think twice before they get furious about the storyline in this book.

“Obviously the big hook is Northstar's potential status as Marvel's first married gay superhero. But for me this is just a major event in the story of a character I think is pretty neat,” Dean said.

It was about time Marvel revisited the issue of Northstar’s sexuality. The issue in which he came out was a big deal but the subject was pretty well glossed over immediately thereafter. For a long while it was as if nothing had happened.

"You had camps of fans that were pretty ticked about both; that is, there were people upset that Marvel had a gay mutant, but there were a ton of people who were more upset that apart from a big pronouncement he wasn't allowed to be gay in the comics,” Dean said.

Despite any disagreement in the X-Men fandom, “the fact that Marvel is making this happen now matters, and I think we all like to read stories which matter whether we agree with them or not,” he said.

There was a time in comics where some horrible disaster that threatened lives was preferable to a “gay” subplot. Now most comic fans can name at least a good half dozen or more gay characters without even thinking about it. More importantly, these characters usually have compelling stories and reasons to exist apart from being "the gay one,"  the same stigma that followed the token black member of many comics in the 40s, 50s, and 60s.

Comic fans have seen this kind of relationship blossom before, in Marvel's Wiccan and Hulkling, for example. This, however, represents a whole new line in the sand for Marvel, and it's an accomplishment unto itself. It's indicative of a completely different way of thinking. That's plenty controversial to some people, but perfectly in line with the message of books like the X-Men.

I hope things work out for the character, but, this being comics, few things work out like the heroes hope in the long run. Either way, I'll be reading.

So, until next week, go forth and read, my people. And the reading will be good!

    And the slippery slope is absolutely valid. There is no reason (under the current humanist thinking) that forbids two gay brothers from marrying. I'll bet many gay supporters here would already be for it.

    Conservative atheist says – two men having anal intercourse is disgusting and I don't need god to tell me that – and those who disagree are brainwashed freaks. Our society is disgusting.

    May 23, 2012 at 3:00 pm |
    • sam stone

      I am a conservative atheist. I am straight. I don't think much about two men having intercourse. Why do you? As far as the two brothers marrying, let's see some proof of support among gay people. Otherwise, you are just talking out of your south end

    I agree with another post from earlier. I'm so sick and tired of hearing about gay this, gay that i dont care what happens. Talk about beatin a dead horse. This subject has been so beatin it's lost any coherence. The other day I went to the park it was a nice day, people flyin kites then of course ya see a multicolored rainbow flag flyin high, i'm like good grief it's every now.. cant even go to a park without seein a reference to Gay pride and i dont even live in New york.

      Seeing a rainbow flag is just like seeing an Asian flag by an Asian or a Euorpean flag hung by a Euorpean. It is just showing pride in who they are and they are not afriad to show it.

      May 23, 2012 at 3:16 pm |
    • FadedCub

      You call it "beatin a dead horse" we call it fighting for equal rights. Being a human being yet being denied the same rights and respect as other people is kind of a big issue. ESPECIALLY being in America, a country founded on diversity and acceptance (well it used to be anyway). I find it so funny that people often forget that they are only here because of immigration. Those immigrants had to fight for their respect and rights, were they beating a dead horse to? Get real and stop being so ignorant.

      May 23, 2012 at 3:38 pm |
      • Rob

        The best way to fight for something is to learn to pick your battles. Trying to fight every battle, and you end up losing. Kind of what will happen to this movement if the pace contiues.

        May 23, 2012 at 5:17 pm |
      • onecalledsam

        There's a subtle rewrite of history. Our fore fathers, escaping brutal European oppression and heavy taxation, escaped other countries and came to the US for........equal rights(say it slowly when you say it) and to be free to poke men in the a$$? There you have it.

    I find it hilarious that people are on here grandstanding about two drawings getting married. Not that I care either way, whatever floats your boat. But who wants to read a comic about a wedding? What's next? Thor going to the opthalmologist?

      No kidding. I leave being concerned about this to the religious bigots and hateful morons, but seriously a comic about marriage? Drama and suspense just isn't found in flower arrangements.

      May 23, 2012 at 2:47 pm |
      • Willy

        Please explain to us how your opposition to traditional marriage and religious beliefs is not hatred and bigotry as well.

        May 23, 2012 at 3:30 pm |
      • sam stone

        How is this opposition to traditional marriage and religious beliefs? I don't recall anyone saying that straight people should be barred from marrying, or that people cannot hold traditional religious beliefs. This is about equal protection under the law.

      Actually I always liked the Wedding comics, except when they were dumb and bad guys crashed the wedding. It's fun to see the extended family & relations of the characters or Teams get together and it's a nice change of pace. If you read comics you see a million stories fighting the bad guys but sometimes it's the stories that are a little different that stand out. In X-Men back when I really followed it some of my favorite stories have been the "downtime ones" – the ones where the X-Men take a day off and play baseball, the one where Cyclops & Madelyne Pryor were on honeymoon, the one where Dazzler is stalked by an obsessive fan, the one where the guys and the girls have a night out on the town, where Longshot returns all the treasures the Reavers stole to their rightful owners, etc.

    I wonder, with stuff like this, Batwoman(DC), etc. Do they do this because they really and truly want to, or to ride the wave of pro-gay activism and gets some extra sales and backing from the liberal side of the spectrum?

    Honestly, I don't care. Was never a Marvel fan and this doesn't affect me at all. Still that question forever pervades me.

    So Superman marries SpiderMan. Batman marries Captain America and Ironman marries Cyclops and so on. Perhaps President Obama is Gay too. And Mitt Romney too. Yup! Every body in the World is Gay. We are ALL VERY VERY happy now. And please teach your Children – Being Gay is Good for Them. Yes. Thankyou for Reading. It is a Wonderful World!

      Northstar has been gay for a long time. Talking about Cyclops or Captain America or anyone else being made into a gay character is just stupid. That's not what's happenign here at all. A gay character is getting married – that's all. Move on with your life.

    I'm not in favor of gay marriage on a personal level, but I'm not gay so I'm not going to marry a gay man. I'm also not in favor of people being mistreated because they are different. So, all of you who disagree with gay marriage, don't worry about it. It will be okay. Breathe. And to those who consider this a huge victory, enjoy the comic.

      I just love the moral relativity you show here. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

      • Jared

        Don't get me wrong. I believe in absolute truth and that sin is sin. I also believe that it does no good to beat someone up with scripture, especially if they don't believe. I figure I have enough sin in my life to deal with that I don't need to worrying about the sin in other people's lives. Besides, being mean or rude only serves to drive a wedge between us. If someone is to ever see Christ living in me, I figure driving wedges isn't the place to start.

        So, while I may personally not believe two men getting married is the right thing to do, it doesn't hurt anyone. It isn't even one of the big ten(11) and I believe I could be breaking the second greatest commandment by doing otherwise. Heh, the way many Christians treat this issue, it could actually even be considered idolatry because it almost seems more important to them than God.

        So I say let them marry and don't cause anyone harm.

    Just a way to perpetuate the stereotype of grown men living in mom's basement reading comic books – they are surely gay deviants. I've seen the way comic book guy looks at Bart Simpson!

    To be gay implies intimate activity, something that would surely be odd for some superheros and their mates. I mean, a "quickie" with the Flash is pretty much a given, right?

      NOT GOING TO RELAX....GOING TO BAN MARVEL COMICS AND BEGIN TO FIGHT POLITICALLY. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS AT STAKE HERE...AND NEEDS TO BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY. THE GAY COMMUNITY ARE TRYING TO CHANGE LAWS THAT WILL CHANGE ALL FORMS OF FREEDOM IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY, THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN FIGHTING DISCRIMINATION....NO, THEY WANT THE WHOLE PIE...AND WE NEED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT. THE NEXT STEP WILL BE TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL FOR A CHURCH – NOT TO MARRY THEM.....RIGHT? BELIEVE ME – THAT IS WHERE THIS IS GOING. I DO NOT HATE ANYONE....NOR DO I WANT TO SEE ANYONE BULLIED OR DEPRIVED OF HUMAN RIGHTS. BUT WHEN A KID CANNOT GO TO SCHOOL WITH A SHIRT THAT SAYS JESUS LOVES ME....WE ARE ALREADY IN DEEP WATER. GOD LOVES EVERY SOUL ON THIS PLANET – BUT I WILL NEVER LOOK UP AT HEAVEN AND TELL GOD HE HAS MADE A MISTAKE IN HIS ORIGINAL INTENTION FOR THE HUMAN RACE. MARRIAGE IS FOR A MAN AND A WOMAN. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH – BUT THAT IS IN JEOPARDY RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK. STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BECAUSE IT IS HANGING BY A THIN THREAD

Get off the bandwagon and think for yourself for once! If you haven't noticed, which wouldn't be surprising giving your lack of intilect and self thinking, these people are for freedom of religion and freedom of speech. They are for all freedom!

I love these 3rd world ideals that you guys have. You couldn't even explain rationally how allowing gays the same rights as others will cause all this devistation as you claim it will. Get real...

    Gays should really look into conversion therapy. It has a proven track record of curing gays. The liberal media tries to downplay the effectiveness of conversion therapy but you will never know it you try it. However, since many gays do not seek to correct their defective behavior I will have to conclude they choose to be gay. Conversion therapy is not about praying the gay away. They use many different methods like electroshock therapy to help gays get normal.

      Being gay is absolutely NOT a choice. Who would choose a life to be taunted at made fun of. Just as you find gays abnormal, I find your way of thinking and especially about electric shock therapy abnormal. If you can turn a gay man straight with electro shock therapy you should be able to turn a straight man gay too with the same method. See how silly that sounds?

        Interestingly enough pedophiles make your same argument and yet I chose not to "tolerate" them. Because I have an urge to do something doesn't make that urge ok or morally acceptable. I have urges to sleep with women who are not my wife. I chose not to listen to those urges as I know that's not the best or moral choice to make. People have immoral urges all day every day and we chose not to do them. So what about you? Do you tolerate pedos? If they are born that way you have some issues to consider.

    I normally buy about 10 Marvel issues a week, and have been buying more lately because of AvX. However, this issue just lost them a week of sales. I will not support them in this and I'll just have a gap in my collection. I'm fine with g.ay people, I'm even fine with g.ay marriage, but I don't want to see it in my comics. There is no reason to include it in the story except for political purposes. I will not pay my money to further someone's political agenda. So, I'll just take a week off from buying my favorite Marvel comics and spend the money on other books. 'nuff said, true believers!

        Clark and Lois are classic characters that people had been waiting decades to see married. Same with Spidey and MJ, Cyclops and Jean, etc.. It was part of the story, not just something thrown in there for "shock and awe" or to promote an agenda.

      According to the author, the issue is about love not politics. If you have no problem with gays or gay marriage, then to you this shouldn't actually be a political statement.

      • DarthVader

        Your argument is rubbish Admit it... There are more straight people with AIDS simply because there are many more straight people. If you look at the percentages per group, you'll see that the gay group has a way higher percentage of AIDS infected people, which is very sad.

        Darth, you are correct. This mostly due to the first known HIV infected individual in the US happened to be gay and quite promiscuous. It's interesting that one of the main problems people have with gay men in particular is promiscuity, but at the same time, they are fighting tooth and nail to keep gay men from marrying, which, theoretically, would reduce promiscuous behavior.

      Hi BriSoFla, thank you for your comment. My name is Nicole Saidi, and I am the comments producer/rounder-upper around here. You have asked an excellent question.

      We've seen amazing discussions pop up on unexpected topics, so we try not to make too many presumptions about what people will say. It's true, readers don't always or often agree about things, especially when it comes to topics that are so closely related to personal values and beliefs. You can see that there is a rather spirited discussion taking place here; with matters like these, the secret to commenting well is to remember that it's not just about what you say, but how you say it. We do hope people will take a moment to express themselves respectfully. We'll be listening.

        That's the sad thing here. The posts get too personal when posting an opposing view. After all the disrespect I've seen on several forums today, I almost agree.

      Comic Books have done this since WWII. And you do know that the average comic book reader is an adult, right? Have you ever heard of Dust? She's my favorite X-Man (or would it be woman, lol), and she was created in response to the initial start of the 2002 Afghanistan War. She wears an Abaya, and is adamant that she covers herself not because of Taliban Oppression, but because she observes Islamic Hijab; which means dressing modestly in terms of Sharia Law. Also: Sharia Law has been tainted due to GOP misinformation.

      May 23, 2012 at 12:57 pm |

        Sorry, but Sharia law is tainted because of it's source material: the Qur'an and the Hadith.

      Politics and comic books have ALWAYS been mixed. Your selection has just been limited, is my guess. Comic books are a strong forum for diversity of opinion and always have been, barring a bit of time during McCarthyism.

      You know, the thing that kills me about all this "don't write gay characters! don't write this or that or blah blah blah!" stuff is that people are actually commenting that they would like other people's rights to free speech infringed. For goodness' sake, if you don't like to read it, DON'T READ IT! Quit calling for authors and creators to censor their right to free speech just for your ease and comfort.

      They can write whatever they want. Deal with that; it's called reality. It's also reality that you can censor what comes into your home. If you don't like the comic, then just plain don't buy it. Quit telling people not to write them; it's pointless and silly.

    Wow, these comments make me kind of sick. Marvel has always focused on major issues. The X-men have always represented equal rights. If you read this comic and don't like gay marriage, just skip the issue. No big deal.

    In any case, it appears that a lot of commenters do not even read comics so I don't see why they're complaining. Superheroes don't get married? How about Peter Parker and MJ or Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman? I think it's fair to allow a gay superhero to marry as well. As someone else already pointed out, Runaways did this years ago.

    Otherwise, keep your prejudices to yourself. If you're against other people getting married to those they love, maybe someone should prevent you from doing the same. We're in America. I thought we were for equality.

    • 46yrOldKid

      In the 6 or 7 decades Marvel has been in existence, how many weddings have you seen? I can remember the 2 you've mentioned, but, I'm drawing a blank on any more. 2 in 70 years is such a rash of straight marriages that all gay people should just be shocked and offended.

      I'm for gay marriage. I'm all for a different kind of love over a different kind of hate. Though, all the "Oooo! Look at me! Look at me!" press is getting old.

      Oh, and going by the storylines, Spider-Man and Mary Jane's wedding never took place after they did a time rewrite. Google is your friend.

      • Joel

        You're wrong. That was not a retcon by Marvel, that marriage never happened because Spiderman made a deal that changed history in order to save her life. Also, there are quite a few married heroes in comics. No they haven't shown all of their weddings, but they only show weddings that have historic significance, and this one certainly does.

        May 23, 2012 at 12:46 pm |
      • 46yrOldKid

        Not wrong, I just didn't elaborate. I condensed the thought as it sounded really geek explaining the deal. Boiled down, it was still just a rewrite. Jeez, how often do you count out your dice bag?

    I see the typical bigoted comments towards gay people are being tossed around – not surprised.

    I thought the third X-Men movie, "The Last Stand", touched on a subtle correlation between being mutant and being gay...though it wasn't necessarily shown specifically in the movie.

    They had found a "cure" for mutants that would make them "normal". And even some of the dialogue, if you changed up the context slightly, could really have been conversations about what gay people deal with in society instead of what mutants deal with.

    I've always felt the mutant aspect of the X-Men series was a creative way of illustrating what people in society who are considered "different" have to deal with due to the irrational fear of others.

    Funny how you guys put a question mark in the headline, it's a fact. not a question. It's kinda like you're questioning gay marriage as a whole.

  66. MindoverMatter

    Xmen was written first to help the cause of racism during hte 50s-60s-70s. Give or take a couple of years there. So, I understand it is getting a bit annoying hearing about g.ays all the time now; but who cares. Let them get married and you won't have to hear about it anymore. Xmen helped promote the anti-racism that followed that era, maybe it will help with this anti-human era we are in now.

    If you complain thats fine, but you should be use to fairytales–you read the bi.ble don't you?

      Yes they should address the discrimination Gays have faced for so long... not being allowed to vote, forced to sit at the back of the bus, separate toilets, water fountains and schools and having been bought and sold for their masters pleasure. They don't want equal rights... they want exclusive rights.

        How about the right to not get beat up leaving a bar? Sure, there was a time when black people had to sit on the back of the bus or drink from a separate drinking fountain – but in the end the worst atrocities were the lynchings and cross burnings. How about a little empathy for someone who for years never felt comfortable walking down the street holding his boyfriends hand for fear someone would start a fight?

      What I shouldn't have to say Mrs cleaver is I admire Obama he is more than his religion as all men should be. True Christianity believes in "change" so by the very definition means to lead your people UP and away from "common" thought forms (Judgement) that are rampant. Jesus was an esoteric as few where at that time, and he too had to deal with "common" thought forms" he told you not to judge for a reason.... he also told you to CHANGE he did not say REPENT <- this is an intentional change to the bible when the word Metanoia was changed from its Greek translation by the Council of Trent. They don't want you to do your own communication with god, you have to seek a priest to absolve you of all sin, can you say Cha-Ching for the church.

        do you want the "common" version held by today's 24/7 christian with instant forgiveness on Sunday? ->or<- do you want me to waste your reading time telling you something YOU wouldn't understand? the answer is yes, I do know what Jesus said, or what was written down and translated several ways from Sunday" ....and I know the traditional popular translations .... as I am have been studying 53 yrs. The "real answer" would just shock you and your are not ready for it. this is why "many will be called and few will be chosen" ... so as Jesus said I will not caste my perils before swine....

        Interestingly, when I read comic books I wasn't looking for someone who would "represent" me – it was fun escapism, nothing more. It must be nothing short of exhausting to analyze every situation, person, and inanimate object looking for validation, representation, etc. I wouldn't be able to stand it, and I feel for anyone who looks at the world and says "if everyone would just think the way I do, I would finally be happy". It's heartbreaking, really, because that will just never happen, regardless of how militant the arguments get.

      Interesting, considering that a growing number of graphic novels have been getting on the bestseller list (yes, graphic novels are comic books), and stories told about these characters on the big screen have been utter blockbusters. Maybe try picking up an actual book instead of just thinking that they're all for kids.

      The Batman books, Daredevil books, very good crime investigations drama, for example.

      Actually most comics these days are read by adults. The biggest problem facing the industry is getting the young interested in reading.

        All the more reason for the Superhero's to go back to fighting crime, not taking up political issues. I wouldn't have read this comic junk as a kid either.
        Lets see, comic where Superman takes care of Ahmadinejad and frees the Persion people, or Gay superhero gets married. What is an 8 year old to do......

    This is disgusting! Gay's are trying to do anything they can to achieve legitimacy. There is no shortage of people on the left willing to promote this abdominal life style. Please stop assaulting US with these images, and keep your life style in your bedroom.

        Thank you all for the spelling lesson. That still does not change the fact the gay life style is wrong. You can attempt to make those of us willing to speak out appear closed minded. However, in your attempt to silence the majority, who are against gay marriage. You are guilty of the same bigotry you claim others direct at you. My objections are based in my faith. Are saying, I should stop believing what I believe because it's the opposite of your choice. That would be religious bigotry. I will work on my spelling, you work on your moral compass.

    Better to see two men kissing than stabbing, shooting, beating, killing, dismembering one another. American values are kind of backwards in how they view violence.

    • 46yrOldKid

      If you actually read comics, you all would know that nearly every book has some gay character. Avengers Academy has two, Astonishing X-Men has several, just as examples. If they are trying to balance the books, keeping the percentage of gays/straights, they are way out of balance. By ratio, there are a substantially bigger number of gays than there are in actual society. Again, I'm not against gays at all, have several friends who are gay (who are as sick of all the press they have been exposed to about gay marriage), but jeez. If you want to be gay, great, though it doesn't grant you any more rights than the average citizen. We, the average populace, know you are there and there would be so much less arguing and conflicts if people weren't out there saying, "I'm GAY, look at me! I'm GAY and you're not looking, you prejudiced bigot!"

      May 23, 2012 at 11:46 am |
      • Guest12912

        Then you clearly don't understand. if gay marriage was seen as normal as straight then there wouldn't be a need for constant media exposure, they don't want special attention; they just the most basic rights the rest of us already have. which is to be happily married and be recognized for it. marriage is something most of us take for granted.

        May 23, 2012 at 11:57 am |
      • 46yrOldKid

        Guest, I understand just fine. Like I said, I"m for gay marriage. I think people who are against it are nuts. HOWEVER, we don't need to see it absolutely everywhere. It's going to be on milk cartons soon, displacing missing kids.

        May 23, 2012 at 12:08 pm |
      • Chad

        I completely understand where you are coming from, however there is still a lot of hate. Gay marriage is only allowed in a couple states. It isn't accepted yet and there is still a lot of gay bashing and anti-gay propaganda. Just because you and a large number of people have accepted doesn't mean the fight needs to stop. They aren't try to over saturate their supporters, they are trying to reach a larger audience and spread the message. Bravo to Marvel for this.

        May 23, 2012 at 3:11 pm |
      • Rob

        Guest – "recognized for it." That just it. Marriages that need recognition are not happy marriages. Otherwise you don't need anyone to recognize it but your spouce.

    whoa whoa top out – according to this article – "... but this is the first time a superhero is tying the knot." Sorry, not accurate. Any comic geek who truly knows his stuff would know that Apollo and the Midnighter from Wildstorm's The Authority series married about 12 years ago. Northstar may be Marvel's first gay superhero to marry but he was not *the* first to marry. Proof here: http://www.gayleague.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/apollomidnighter0.jpg

    Being gay is being a mutant. If they don't choose to be gay then there is something in their genetic code which makes them go against natural humanistic tendencies. So this X-men character is a double mutant...
