Added DiffLines:

* SuperSupremacist: The mutants usually have to deal with FantasticRacism directed at themselves by humans, but some mutants conversely believe that ''Homo Superior'' was designed to rule over regular humans.
** ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, from [[DarkAndTroubledPast his experiences in a Nazi concentration camp]], believes that humans rightly fear mutants because mutants are their evolutionary replacements. DependingOnTheWriter, he believes that fear and prejudice are a product of their innate inferiority and that the inherent diversity within the mutant species would allow them to overcome said prejudices if freed from humanity's chains. He is unable to see the irony in how being a mutant supremacist makes him no better than a human supremacist. (But again, this depends on the writer.)
** ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} is Magneto's philosophy taken to an even more frightening conclusion. Apocalypse not only believes that humans are obsolete, but also that there is no room for mutants who [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway lost the]] SuperpowerLottery and got BlessedWithSuck. To Apocalypse, [[SocialDarwinism survival of the fittest]] is all that matters, which means that there is no difference between a {{Muggle}} and a weaksauce mutant. Both equally deserve extinction.

** Since their move to Utopia, the X-Men have been almost exclusively devoted to the survival of the dwindling numbers of their race, up to and including fighting the Avengers over a potential threat that might possibly re-ignite the X-gene worldwide. Even those who ended up siding with the Avengers to stop the Phoenix Five seem to have long forgotten that Xavier's dream was to have peaceful co-existence with humans, not complete segregation for the sake of safety.

(Admittedly this last one is done out of absolute necessity but even Wolverine points out how far away from Xavier's vision the X-Men have moved)

* NinetiesAntiHero: Cable, Bishop.

to:

* NinetiesAntiHero: Cable, Bishop.Cable and Bishop are both very rare ''successful'' examples of this trope, having managed to develop a level of characterization and depth that's usually not applied to characters covered by this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* RePower: This actually has an InUniverse term; "Secondary Mutation". In effect, any given mutant may potentially, in the right circumstances, develop one or more entirely new powers. This may alter, replace or add to original powers. For two of the most iconic example, Beast's transformation from "somewhat ape-like man" to "talking gorilla" to "ape-cat" over the years as his powers have strengthened, and Emma Frost's developing the ability to assume a crystaline "diamond form" that makes her NighInvulnerable and gives her SuperStrength at the cost of being unable to access her psychic powers in that form.
