I'm asking if the following muties have shown up in the past couple of
years anywhere. If any of them are currently dead or depowered,please add this after their names.

El Aguila

The Maha Yogi

Rusty Collins

Magma

Alpha the Ultimate Mutant

Unus

The Vanisher

The Ogre


If anyone can help me out on the present status of the above mutant heroes and villains, I'll be eternally grateful.

    El Aguila

Depowered on M-Day.

    The Maha Yogi

He's not a mutant. He's a mutated human, and more recently, a magician. Back around 8000 BC, some aliens mutated a human, giving him powers. He also goes by the names Mad Merlin and Merlin Demonspawn. He last showed up in the Captain Marvel vol 5 series. He was trapped inside a bubble of magical energy when last seen.

    Alpha the Ultimate Mutant

It's questionable whether he's a mutant or not. Magneto created him in a lab. He hasn't been seen since that issue of Quasar on the Stranger's planet.

    The Ogre

Hasn't been seen since Thunderbolts #55. After a quite long stay with them, he jumped through a portal, traveling with Humus Sapien, into deep, deep space. Might be cool to see him in a cosmic book.

Which arguably doesn't affect the character at all, since his cover story was always that he had a zapper device in his sword anyway. All he has to do is buy one from any of dozens of techie types in the MU.

Apparently Billy Tucci's rejected pitch to take over the last Heroes for Hire series would have involved El Aguila as a villainous sort running illegal immigrants for cheap labor, something rather out of character for the later-day Zorro.

More specifically, the aliens who altered him were the so-called "Caretakers" of Arcturus, from those old 1970s Morbius stories. Their involvement was revealed in a "Tales of the Vishanti" backup strip in the Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme series; prior to that, the Mad Merlin in all his guises had generally been accounted a mutant with some Bloodgem assistance.

Longshot and Shatterstar are somehow considered mutants despite being bioengineered; at a guess, Alpha is also a bioengineered being with the x-gene.

What was his mutant power revealed to be, again?

Actually, I don't think Longshot was ever called a mutant while Shatterstar was part of a earth mutant boy who he merged with. Something to do with the winding ways I think.

No mutant power. He's a human technology user.

That's what I thought, but I couldn't recall if Nicieza dropped in a mutant talent for him after the fact.

Longshot isn't even human, so he is hardly a mutant in any sense. People associate him with mutancy of course due to his association with the X-men.

Mutant powers aren't exclusive to just humans in the MU, for example we've seen mutant Skrulls (Cadre K), mutant Technarch (Warlock), mutant Vorm (Star Stalker & his son) & various others.

In his case, though it hardly makes sense, since he is an artifical alien lifeform with added mystical possibility altering powers.
He was designed with all his powers by Arize, except for his luck. That was some kind of magical branding.
