Advice from your friendly neighborhood me

Sam just said this to me:

“So, Mom. If a spider eats me, that will make me be Spider-Man, right?”

Folks, talk to your kids about mutations before they learn about them on the street.

    And let me just cut you off before you tell me Spider-Man isn’t a mutant. He was bitten by a radioactive spider and his body mutated to have spider-like abilities. You don’t have to be an X-Man to be a mutant. This fine individual agrees with me.

    One of my favorite Spider-Man comics was all about him realizing that his MUTATION could possibly be passed on to his children.

    That is all.

    Marvel refers to Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four as “induced mutants”. There are altered humans in the Marvel Universe who are not considered induced mutants. It can get tricky sorting it until the have kids.

    No argument from me on the mutant definition front. And, heeee.
