The world is so confusing now, in this human-offshoot or posthuman age of superhumans, inhumans, metahumans and mutants. Although inhumans, metahumans and mutants may all be classified as being superhumans, there is a stark difference between them. Mutants who are also known as the ‘homo superior’ race are an offshoot sub-species of humanity that were born with genetic abnormalities that grants them abilities, an appearance, or powers beyond the normal variation expressed in the human genome. Mutants have a genetic mutation called an X-Gene that causes their bodies to develop abilities that regular humans are not able to do. The first X-Gene appeared on Earth about 5,000 years ago, but it wasn’t until World War II that scientists started experimenting to create a race of mutants that they could employ as genetic soldiers. Common mutant powers may include telepathy, telekinesis, flight, energy projection, accelerated healing and enhanced physical strength, agility, or some type of superior use of their senses.
Inhumans are a specific breed of humans that date back to our Cro-Magnon ancestors who were experimented on by the Kree to overcome their evolutionary stagnation, and to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers that they could use to fight against their foe the Skrulls. Their experiments successfully created a strain of humanity that had extraordinary abilities. The inhumans appear as regular humans until they are exposed to Terrigen mist. When inhumans bodies are altered from the mist, this is called Terrigenesis, and this gives them their strange and unusual powers. The mutagenic Terrigen Mist gives them various powers, but it also causes lasting genetic damage and it often created deformities.
Metahumans, commonly shortened as metas, are individuals who acquired powers and abilities unlike those of normal humans after experiencing mutation of their bodies. Their DNA double helix spiral was shaken up due to a particle accelerator explosion and that is how metahumans got there powers. A strange fluctuation of particles started to release an uncontrollable high-energy microwave radiation that instead of rapidly accelerating the particles towards a series of rings, they escaped the shielding and created a myriad of dangerous explosions. It was thought to be safe and the particle accelerator was supposed to be used to further the advancement of the science and medicine. This situation also created something similar to a time machine. A mouse was the first to pass through the gate that opened up on this time machine and instantly mysterious things began to happen as it underwent a remarkable transformation. The term metahuman was coined by the Dominator alien race, and it is used to describe any human being that has super powers. The prefix meta-, in this context, simply means ‘beyond’, as they are thought to be beyond regular stability, on the verge of collapse which could occur at the slightest disruption, thus, metahuman simply describes persons who have abilities beyond normal human limits.
Summing this up, mutants gain their powers from the X-gene, inhumans have to undergo Terrigenesis to obtain their weird powers and appearance, and metahumans need to experience something traumatic which might stem from listening to computer generated sheet music that would be painful to their ears and alter them on a genetic level. The desire to treat and cure everybody with equal regard and respect, created an island of camaraderie that attracted some of biochemistry’s brightest young minds. We might blame the clone for the advancement of stem cell research, as eventually this became an accepted way of life that furthered our scientific knowledge. It was during mitosis, that the chromosomes started duplicating, so they could condense and attach and spindle their fibers to pull one copy of each chromosome to opposite sides of the cell.
Scientists were eventually able to create this stone pit that had unusual healing powers. People originally laughed at this thinking that it was some type of comedy, until they saw the results that this pit was not only able to heal severely injured people, but it could also bring people back from the dead if they were placed in it soon enough. The pit was named the Energy Muse, because it was designed to balance the body using the healing properties certain stones and crystals. For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating a free flow throughout their bodies. On a cellular level, our bodies along with the quartz crystal are both made up of the mineral silicon-dioxide. Humans are naturally receptive to the vibrations that are formed from these healing stones which transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When a human body is placed into the Energy Muse, a powerful vibratory effect surges from the healing stones into them. Their body lays dormant except for their thoughts, which direct energy and this energy serves as a tool to help heal their body.
