There is no need to rely on a CGI-enhanced Marvel movie if mutant powers are what fans are seeking for. Real people all around us exhibit gene-based skills. Let’s get that out of the way: mutations don’t mean claws can retract or weather can be manipulated. These minor errors in the genetic code typically have no impact at all (unless they are fatal). One of the main ways that nature generates new types is through mutation. If genes are helpful, they are passed down through generations until they are incorporated into a species’ larger gene pool (or at the very least innocuous). Evolution would be impossible without mutations because organisms would never be able to learn new abilities or features. According to scientific estimations, each time the human genome multiplies, one hundred additional mutations are added. They are usually unimportant and minor. It is reasonable for humans to predict that some of the numerous altered features will provide amazing superhuman abilities.
