I've some talk lately about the origins of mutants for this message board.
Of course, in the 616 Universe they are an Evolutionary offshoot and a possible way for people to be born. Sometimes activating in their teens, sometimes at birth.
However, later in the Ultimate Universe, it was proven to be a science experiment. Wolverines DNA was used to create all mutants.
I for one, personally hate the Ultimate version. I think they wanted to get a cheap twist ending to Ultimatum, and they did it by pissing all over the X-Men mythos.
So I wanted to ask everyone elses' opinion on which way the board should go, since we are technically re-writing the universe. But until now we were always taking what DID happen, and twist the way it happens. This would change that. But hopefully just for big events we want to alter.
So sound off below, do we keep it, because you either like the idea, or you feel we need to be true to these large scale events? Or do we change it, because you like the 616 more, or are afraid your X-Men character may lack motivation since you know the truth?

I am not a fan of that particular element in the Ultimate universe. I admit I'm not the first one to say this but I always felt that part of the appeal to the XMen is that they're hated and reviled for being the first fish to sprout legs and venture onto land. I know this makes it a little less like the Ultimate universe, but tbh I don't think that that particular fact changes all that much about the universe except in the context of what it meant in one or two stories, which I didn't particularly enjoy anyway.
I could shrug my shoulders either way honestly. The X-Men will be the X-Men either way so it wouldn't bother me for either choice. I do like having differences from the 616 universe but that particular fact... whatever everyone else likes!

Marvel Girl: Yeah I prefer custom characters myself, but I've got to say... playing my Canon characters is growing on me. Its a challenge to make it my own and still keep to the character.

Dutt: Yea we have a universe that is just starting so there is very little history to all characters so people could def customize any hero fairly easily
