Muties (2002)

Think all mutants wear spandex? Or have flashy codenames? Or are immersed in the struggle between human and mutant? Think again! MUTIES is a six-issue series that explores a very different side of a classic Marvel concept, and can be loosely described as The Uncanny X-Men meets The Twilight Zone. Each globe-spanning, self-contained story focuses on a different mutant and his place in the world — whether or not he's directly involved in the ideological struggle that will inevitably determine the future of mankind. These are the ones who have fallen between the cracks. Meet a thirteen-year-old boy genius who is taunted and tormented by his peers. But what is the secret that makes Jared different from anything mutant fans have ever encountered before?
