    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.



    Quote:
    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.

        Quote:
        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.



    Quote:
    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.

        Alpha the Ultimate Mutant

        Quote:
        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.



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


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.

        Quote:
        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.

    What was his mutant power revealed to be, again?
