Maybe she really is a superior mutant.' Gesturing, he went on, 'I wouldn't be surprised to discover that she has those powers mutants have. I mean, she's not like anybody else. When she says something, you know it's right. Maybe she has that faculty of--what is it?--reading the future.'

'Precognition,' Ferde Heinke said.

'You think so?'

'No,' he said. 'That was the whole point of the story. She's actually a human being...' "

mutants Canada 2000 Faerber, Jay. "X-Men Movie Prequel: Wolverine " in X-Men: Beginnings, Vol. 1. New York: Marvel Comics (2000); pg. 4. [Overheard on Canadian television in a bar in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.] "'As we follow the United States' attempts to legislate mutants, the question on a lot of Canadians' lips is... what exactly is a mutant? Professor Charles Xavier--noted geneticist, and head of the prestigious Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters--says the answer lies in what scientists call 'junk DNA'. DNA is the basic building block of life, and changes in our DNA are what have allowed human beings to evolve from single-celled organisms. The human body contains millions of genes which dictate our physical characteristics of eye color, height, and so on. But the human body also contains millions upon millions of genes which appear to be useless. These apparently useless genes are what scientists have dubbed 'junk DNA'. In the few documented studies that exist scientists have determined that mutant abilities stem from this 'junk DNA'. "

I've underlined a lot of passages in that last one, usually places where I quarreled with the writers. Outsiders? Those writers, gifted as they were, were the outsides, trying to imagine powers they'd never had; and I, who was on the inside, I the youthful mind-prowler (the book is dated 1954), had bones to pick with them.
