In Case You Were Wondering, the X-Men Family Tree

(click to enlarge)

As much of a geek as I consider myself, this graphic threw me for a bit of a loop as I realized I didn’t know most of what was going on. But I know the kind of audience we have here, and I’m sure there are the die-hard among you who can explain exactly everything going on in this family tree.

I always knew that things were a bit incestuous in the X-Men world, but I didn’t know to what extent. With no names supplied, I have to guess at a few of these, but I get the general hint that all these mutations might be caused by more than just random chance. Mess around in the same gene pool long enough and maybe your kids will end up flying or telekinetic some day. Good news West Virginia!
