View Full Version : Possible Character?

Mornin' everybody. I was wonderin if there has ever been a character in the x-men universe who is a mutant with the ability to turn other mutants back into humans. I thought that if it hasn't yet been done, a character who can reverse other mutants mutations could make things pretty interesting. he'd be sought after and at the same time feared by all sides: humans, good mutants, evil mutants.
Please let me know if anything like this has been done in any of the comics. If it has, what's the title and issues?

I know Leech of the Morlocks had the ability to temporarily drain mutants of their powers whenever they were in a certain radius of him, I think.

Would that work for Wolverine? Leech couldn't simply remove his claws, can he?

I'm not really sure how Leech's powers would work, scientifically speaking, but I would assume that if he spent a long time around Wolverine, his body would start to reject the claws and attempt to destroy them, as well as the muscles around them that allow for him to control them.

To answer the question of the topic there was a character that Wolverine and Rogue encountered when they first went to Genosha that sounds like what you are describing. I think his name was Wipeout, but don't quote me on that. He had the ability to completely remove a mutants ability for as long as he wanted to. I think he had to be in a radius (like Leech) to initially remove the power, but once it was removed he didn't have to stay near the person. Logan almost died because his immune system is his healing power and Rogue ended up getting assaulted by Genosha security.

Well...I think it's been cleared up several times all over that the claws aren't really a power. Which is why a character like Mystique would be able to morph his claws(not the adamantium of course)...its just part of his bone structure. It was the healing factor that allowed Weapon X to lace it with adamantium.
Anyway back to the subject, that'd be an interesting power. It'd actually be a pretty neat thing to be laid out because would humans fear him as a mutant? or praise him as someone who can stop mutants? It'd be pretty neat...insanely ironic that he's a mutant but his power is that he nullifies other mutants powers...interesting.

I like it! Way cool. I think he would be praised as an antimutant hero, but eventually i think the government would slowly take control of him untill he became a weapon instead of a person. It makes a great story!

That's a great idea. It might run into the same problems that (was it red kryptonite?) Superman had with that special krytonite that would remove his powers completely forever. It's kind of destroys the whole episodic nature of "threat faced, threat defeated, universe unchanged" nature of comics. But I guess a few of our favourites have been robbed of their powers for a while like Storm in Arthur Adams Xmen.
This would be a great character. I wonder why it hasn't really been delved into before.
