Toward the end of the Cheese Age it became clear that human DNA was far more capable than previously thought and it was beginning to change in some very odd ways. These Mutants, were naturally feared, mistrusted and discriminated against even by some Superladies on all sides.
The natural reaction to discrimination is resistance but the Mutant community is divided as to just how violent this resistance should be.
Mutants have the advantage of using their notoriety to strike terror into their foes however they have real trouble co-operating with the notoriously prejudiced Police force.
Though they show a variety of Superpowers they have a heavy bias toward asymmetrical terrorist/freedom fighter style tactics.
