The Mutates are mutants that were modified using a process created by the Genegineer, David Moreau on the island of Genosha. These mutates were used as slaves of the people there.


When the mutates were freed, a government was formed with a mutant-human coalition, to avoid a Civil War. The Legacy Virus was later affecting the Genoshan mutates, with less reactions from the human deciders.

As Magneto conquered Genosha, after Colossus sacrificed himself to cure the mutants from the Virus, the mutates gathered under his rule, and joined his army in order to assault the human world.

With the destruction of Genosha by Cassandra Nova's Wild Sentinels[1] and the Decimation, the only referenced remaining Genoshan mutates are those from the X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force.

Alternate universes


A few Genoshan mutates escaped from Genosha and were saved by Magneto's army. Magnus, showing them to Charles Xavier, convincing him to free the Island.

During the attack, Xavier was transported into a prison, and had as job to break their mental containment, allowing them to use their powers, and recovering their freedom by themselves.

They were eventually all freed when Magneto threatened the Magistrate Tam Anderson to crush Genosha with a mountain, forcing the human forces to surrender.[2]
