What X-Men style mutation do you think would suit you best?

Asked by TheJoker (2795points) February 10th, 2010

I’m not so interested in what mutation you’d like… although feel free to say that too. Rather, given your personality, physique, character traits etc, which mutation would best fit with who you already are.

With my personality, I think a more “cerebral” mutation would fit me best. I wouldn’t do well with enhanced strength or speed. Probably something like Professor Xavier’s telepathy, Jean Grey’s telekinesis, or the ability to heal.

healing, would be mine I think. I don’t fight often so healing is out I think.

I think something like Professor Xavier’s would suit me best. I have often been told that I am a good judge of people, and can understand what they are thinking sometimes when I am not supposed to. I tend to avoid fights rather than participate, although I am ready if I did have to, and my style is focussed towards finesse rather than brute force.

Prof. Xavier because of my cerebralness(is that a word lol? How about ‘cerebrality’ haha). Or Jean Grey because of my dormant psychopath (Phoenix) lol. Though I’d just like to be Phoenix outright, but the one in the inaccurate movie, she was more unruly and hedonistic.

can I wear that blue outfit?:))

TheJoker's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille… I’d be insulted if you didnt :)

Shape shifting, because I always think about being somebody else and I tend to mold my personality to suit any given situation.

TheJoker's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille….. Just thought I’d check to be certain…. you did mean Mystique rather than Beast didn’t you ;)

CMaz's avatar

I want to be Captain Crunch.

TheJoker's avatar

@ChazMaz…. I can live with that. On a different tack, do ya think he’ll ever make Admiral?

CMaz's avatar

Na, he is always too busy screwing around .

Dr_Dredd's avatar

@TheJoker No, he needs to get into shape and stop eating so many crunchberries. :-)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@TheJoker -Mystique!!!—Beast is my sister lol!
@ChazMaz -With Crunchberries?lol!

Vunessuh's avatar

Considering the fact that I’m always naked, I would be Mystique.
Not to mention, I do have the ability to easily place myself in someone else’s shoes, so the ability to physically transform into someone else would be pretty cool. :)

CMaz's avatar

@Vunessuh – So you REALLY want to be a Gorean slave? :-)

TheJoker's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille…... Hahahahahahaha, I hope she doesn’t use this site too!

TheJoker's avatar

@Vunessuh…. Groovy… & just a little bit naughty too :)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Vunessuh I’ll let you borrow my outfit….and for my birthday,could you transform into my mother-in-law and get the hell out of dodge??—just kidding:)))

JeanPaulSartre's avatar

I’d probably be Sylar, ala Heroes, as I can figure out how things work. Uh oh.

CMaz's avatar

Isn’t Men and Heroes pretty much the same thing?

JeanPaulSartre's avatar

@ChazMaz Basically. I’d say X-men is slightly more action genre and Heroes is slightly more drama genre. X-men also has a significantly deeper history to draw from.

Vunessuh's avatar

@ChazMaz I guess it depends on who my master is.
@lucillelucillelucille LMAO. I’m not sure I’d be able to stand myself if I transformed into her. :p

Something like Colossus/Wolverine to take hits and injuries but get back up and keep going.

I find his transformation symbolic to life, deflect anything that comes your way.

JeanPaulSartre's avatar

It doesn’t matter, I’ll steal all your powers one by one… Mwa ha ha ha ha….
wait, was that out loud?

ModernEpicurian's avatar

Hmm, I think that I would also steal from Heroes instead and have Matt Parkman’s power, I really would like to be able to push thoughts and trap people inside their own heads ect.

Steve_A's avatar

@ModernEpicurian So you like to steal ideas from people in real life?

dvan540's avatar

It wuld be cool to have wings and be like archangel i think.

fireinthepriory's avatar

I mean, in terms of personality I’d be like Beast, the whole intellectual professor thing, but he doesn’t really have powers that go along with his personality. And I would not like to have his “powers.” :) So barring that, perhaps something like IceMan or Storm. I’m a scientist, so I think my power would have something to do with the natural world.

RocketSquid's avatar

I’d like to think I’d have something more like Forge because I’m always thinking of some stupid-off-the-wall machine I’d like to build or see built.

Berserker's avatar

If I could manifest my discontentment and pessimism of generally everything into some kinda physical form of energy and use it against people, I suppose that would work. It would be cool too if said energy summoned deformed monstrosities to fight with me, and they would all symbolize something all deep and traumatizing.

Wait, X Men, not Silent Hill…

@ChazMaz Crunchatize me, Cap’n!
