Mutants are individuals born with what is commonly referred to a the X-Gene in this universe, which grants them extraordinary superhuman powers, ranging from teleportation to photons and magnetism manipulation, and many others. The X-Gene has also been known to cause physical changes varying between mutants. While some may show zero changes to their appearance others have exhibited such changes to their skin or eyes. In Clarice Fong's case, better known as Blink, her eyes are a bright shade of green. The mutant gene is known to manifests at times of great stress. This appears to be the case for Andy Strucker.
