Prehistoric X-Men: How the 'First Mutants' Gave Humans 'Superpowers'

"In "X-Men: Apocalypse," hitting theaters Friday (May 27), a big, blue powerhouse called "the world's first mutant" threatens humanity with his fearsome abilities. Though real-life mutations haven't given people apocalyptic powers (yet!), science has hinted at some of the human lineage's "first mutations." From genes implicated in the ballooning of the human brain to mutations associated with the modern diet, genetic tweaks to our human ancestors helped make this species the dominant one on the globe — at least until an Apocalypse comes along. Here are some of the "first mutants" in humanity's prehistory."........................

See whole article here:

Accidental mutations have been going on throughout biological history.

- Deliberate mutations designed by 'us' have also been happening for a long time.

Some of the new 'superpowers' we offer are of recent and/or extraterrestrial origin.

You could define the # we do to food animals as "deliberate mutations" if you don't mind eating your favorite X-Man every time you get a Happy Meal with chicken "nuggets" made from chickens genetically modified to have three breasts and more fat for better marbling and easier cooking.

//insert joke about female x-men and genetically improved breasts.

but back on topic, if you read the Age of Apocalypse series, it was actually not bad. I don't generally care for series' that feature Wolverine, but it was good he wasn't strictly a central focus of it.
