I'd prefer them to just not use the term "mutant" if that's Marvel's only legal option but we're definitely getting cheated out of some great mythos.
I'd say Marvel should use them in an Avengers sequel and give no explanation at all where their powers come from.
Stark: "Okay, I'm impressed. What's their story?"
Fury: "I don't know. They won't tell us. But honestly, I don't care. There are so many people with strange powers around lately... all I care about is that they are on our side."
You can always come up with a good explanation later...
