The X-Men. The Children of the Atom. Perhaps no other characters in comics are as rooted in a scientific concept. Evolutionary biologist Nathan H. Lents addresses how the X-gene might work, how non-mutant parents have mutant kids, what it really means to be the “next step in human evolution,” and just how removed from the rest of the population Marvel’s mutants really are.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!
