Being normal, average, regular; all that jazz.
See, I’m a mutant and I like being a mutant. I like that I can control fire, make one of the most destructive forces on planet Earth do exactly what I want it to do and I couldn’t imagine not having this power.
Nothing would be worse for me to be like everyone else, to be human when I’ve spent my life since I turned sixteen being anything but.
I won’t admit this to a lot of people but when I heard the government had a “cure”, my blood ran cold. Firstly, mutants aren’t a disease that needs to be cured and secondly, who the hell are they to tell us we need to be cured?
I’ve seen first hand what this “cure” can do, I’ve watched it change Mystique into a regular woman without blue skin and scales, and I’ve seen what she could’ve looked like if she hadn’t been born the way that she was. Beautiful no doubt about that but not a mutant, one hundred percent human and that is the scariest thing I think I’ve ever seen.
Worst of all, our own kind used it against us; turned the government’s weapon on us to try and stop what we were trying to do. Fortunately for me, I lucked out. Got knocked unconscious and had my sorry ass dragged out of there before things really turned nasty.
So yeah I narrowly avoided being turned into something I’ve never wanted to be and I hope that I never have to because that’s my greatest fear; being just like everyone else.
