As of right now, (read; characters submitted and listed in the Characters Thread) we have quite a few Alpha and Beta level mutants and no Epsilon, Delta, or Gamma level. I know it's easy to pick really powerful mutants to play, especially if they're well known. For example; Storm, Logan, Cyclops, etc. But part of the fun of roleplaying in this type of game, can be playing out a mutant with some kind of physical deformity. Or other type of setback, and seeing how they progress and get along with other people like them.
After all, Delta level mutants are the most common type with the mutant population consisting of around 50% of them. Hell, Beast and Nightcrawler are in this category!
I will not be closing off applications for characters of those types, however. But just be mindful of this.
Secondly, I know it might be easy to just claim a canon character and copy/paste their history from the wiki page. But please, DO NOT DO THIS!
Such an act is considered plagiarism by the staff and you, as well as I, will most likely get reprimanded by them. And I really don't want to get on their bad side, you know?
Back to business!
