Quote: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.
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.
