What Makes the New Mutants So Popular?
The New Mutants is a group of young college students who escape from an over secure society to live in the wild. Five teenage mutant teenagers – Mirage, Wolfsbane, Cannonball and Sunspot – receive special treatments in a private facility which will effectively cure them of their telepathic, telekinetic, and telekinetic abilities. But when a team of sinister scientists known as Magneto and Arcade attempt to use their unique technologies on the new recruits, an ancient evil . Now the New Mutants must work together to protect the world they live in as well as to fight against Magneto and his evil henchman. They must battle the evil Professor X, who is determined to use their powers for his own dark agenda.
The New Mutants first made their comic book debut in the October, 2007 issue. They were immediately popular with both children and adults alike. The new teens became a part of the x-men comics for the next five years, where they starred alongside other popular new characters such as Wolverine and Cyclops. Some of the exciting issues included the classic “Old Man Run” story, where the team followed Old Man Storm to the future, and the shocking “Uncanny X-Men.” These issues also featured exciting guest stars like Jean Grey, Storm, Rogue, and Wolverine.
The New Mutants joined the ranks of the top-selling X-Men storylines during the start of the 2009 season. Several exciting storylines featuring the new mutants were introduced, including a special appearance by Surge. Boone, a warrior who survived the Weapon X program, returned to prominence after being left behind on a ship to deal with some demons. He went on to help Cable, Rogue, Storm, and Gambit in several thrilling adventures.
There was a live action TV series starring Alex Cross as Cable, and Noah Taylor as Boone. It featured an all new X-Men, which featured Surge as the teen who believed in the Purifying Force. Several members of the team, including the Strong Man and Beast, were killed during an attack on the school. While Cross and others are placed into a coma, the X-Men continue their mission to protect the world. The animated TV show ended its second season with an episode that addressed the future of the X-Men, where they were introduced to an unknown future where they were forced to battle the mutant organization known as the Weapon X.
The Dark Phoenix – This movie is the sequel to the successful X-Men series. It is set ten years after the events of the original X-Men movie. During the movie, Charles Xavier died and has been replaced by Rogue. He is now the head of the X-Men organization, hunting down and killing any member of the villainous group that has crossed the line. Wolverine, who has been in a serious mental breakdown, tries to help the young X-Men put an end to the madness by telling them about the dark Phoenix. With the help of Professor X, the X-Men are able to put the final touches on the story and save Charles’ life.
New Mutants – Based off of the classic X-Men comic, the New Mutants are a group of teenage X-Men that have been revitalized through an experimental process. They were basically left alone in the future and left by themselves, because the world that they live in is going to be destroyed by a massive disaster. They were not told what the disaster is for, so they never found out. The X-Men were sent to the past to prevent the new mutations from occurring. The X-Men arrive in the twenty-first century and find out that the X-Men were wiped out due to a biological experiment gone wrong.
The events in the comics are similar to the events in the movie, except that there are a lot more characters in the book, and many more reasons for them to fight the evil geneticist. The events in the new mutants series were filmed back to back with the original X-Men movie. The new mutant kids of the future will be introduced into the comics shortly after the original X-Men series ends. It is unknown when we will see some of the new mutant kids, but the short timeline does not give any time frame. We do, however, get to see some of the old characters in the new mutants. It was revealed in the New Mutants movie that Scott Summers was the geneticist that created the new geneticists.
The new mutations are here to stay. They are here to give children hope, and they are here to inspire new generations of young men and women. If you are a fan of the X-Men comic books, and even if you have never watched the new movies, I highly suggest that you should give the new mutant movies a chance. You will not be disappointed by what the newest generation of superheros can do.
