* BroughtDownToNormal: Mr. X turned the "toad boy" into a common human boy. He can not produce drugs from his body anymore, and the mafia will have no longer any interest in him. Besides, now that he's not a horrible monster, perhaps he can get a girl or two...
** It also happens to all Mutant Town (except for Bishop and Mr. X) at the end of ComicBook/HouseOfM.

* VitriolicBestBuds: The crime boss Kaufman and his right hand, Mr. Punch. Kaufman is a mutant with periodic [[PowerIncontinence outbursts of super-strength and violent rage]], which he can not prevent. Mr. Punch is nigh invulnerable and may receive any amount of beating without feeling pain or being injured. And so, every time that Kaufman has his outburst, Mr. Punch is there to receive the beating, he does not mind and allows Kaufman to avoid destroying the furniture or beating someone that may not be convenient to beat.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Bishop's boss, Colonel Alexei Vazhin, will do anything to avoid race riots in District X, up to and including ordering the murder of innocent people without batting an eye. Memorably, there's one point where Bishop strangles him into unconsciousness over this.

** Patricia Hamilton has body features of fish. She was a great swimmer, but was disqualified from the Olympic games because of unfair advantages (her mutant body). So she left England and moved to New York, to the land of the opportunities... and works every night inside an aquarium in a porn club.

'''District X''' was a short lived comic book series by David Hine that run from 2004 to 2005. It takes place at "District X", also known as "Mutant town", a neighborhood in New York City where most of the people are mutants. The main characters are two cops, Ismael Ortega (human) and Bishop (mutant), who try to enforce the law at this highly anarchic place. Actually, Ortega began working with Gus Kucharsky (human), who ended in the hospital at the first issue.

The series was a police procedural, rather than a superhero comic. Mutants are not heroes or villains, just common urban people (cops, neighbours, petty thieves, "totally radical" teenagers, vagrants, etc) who simply happen to have weird super powers. There are almost no superhero costumes involved (not even in Bishop, he goes around in normal police uniform).

The series had a SpiritualSuccessor called "Mutopia X", a tie-in with the crossover HouseOfM, where Mutant Town becomes like the Hollywood of the new alternative reality.

* UnreliableNarrator: When Ortega and Kucharsky tried to free a woman held captive by her husband, the woman zapped Kucharsky's will with a single word. She made him shot her husband, Kucharsky shot her to get rid of her control, and before dying she forced him to fire to his head. He was lucky: the bullet did not break his skull, and he only stayed unconcious in the hospital for some days and woke up with [[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesia]]. He wanted to know what happened... so Ortega told him a white lie: that it was the husband who shot his wife, shot Kucharsky and then himself.
