Default Re: What if people/AIM are selling/distributing powers?

I actually kind of like the term "gifted." It is less discriminatory than the classic "mutant", and dodges the whole "why are mutants treated differently than everyone else" issue. It also puts a much more positive spin on superhumanity, implying that the default viewpoint is that such is a, well, gift, something good. Mutant, by contrast. . . well in nature, 99% of all mutations are bad for the individual, so. . .
