Mutants are individuals born with superhuman abilities. Their existence is unknown to the general public, but the U.S. government has organizations - known as the Divisions - that study, capture, and eliminate potential mutant threats. A safe haven for mutants, known as Summerland, was founded by Oliver Bird and Cary Loudermilk.

History

Records of mutants first started appearing as early as the 1800s with Amahl Farouk. For several decades the existence of mutants was not known. While poems and pictures were drawn of mutants no one knew what they were.

In the 40s two mutants, Oliver Bird and Cary Loudermilk founded Summerland to provide a safe environment for mutants learning how to control their powers. Summerland was able to operate in secret and efficiently for some time due to secrecy of the existence of mutants.

After the Lazarus Affair the United States governments, in conjunction with several other governments from around the world joined together to create the Divisions. The Divisions were made to deal with what was seen as the new mutant threat. They would capture, study, and even eliminate potential mutant threats. Obviously, Summerland and Divisions came into conflict.

Mutants' presence in the world became more noticeable with incidents like Redhook, and Clockworks. Despite this, the presence of Mutants is still kept a secret to the general public.

Due to the threat that Amahl Farouk posed, Summerland and Divisions called a truce with Summerland merging with Division 3. Sydney Barrett, a mutant, and Melanie Bird, the former leader of Summerland, were able to convince the Divisions that the majority mutants aren't a threat to the public. Because of this, the opinion of mutants has shifted to be more favourable and most mutants are left alone to live their lives in peace.

Trivia

  • In the main Marvel Comics continuity, the powers of mutants stem from a genetic marker known as the X-Gene, which is located on the 23rd chromosome. [1] While it is unknown whether the X-Gene exists in the universe of Legion, it has been confirmed that mutant abilities have a genetic component. [2]
