I asked myself if there was a X-Men team on DC who would be in? Does DC actually has Mutants?

Dammit. I was going to correct you, but your statement is true.

I know Doom Patrol were originally DC's so-called equivalent of the X-Men, but I'm still curious who people would pick as "DC X-Men". I can imagine Beast Boy being on the team... but I'm not sure who else :)

Mutants are those born with genetic difference that grants powers. Right? Aliens and mutants alike are part of the X-Men... Superman!

so only mutants (or as DC seems to call them Meta-humans) are allowed on this team?

Isn't Killer Croc DC's only mutant? I know he doesn't really qualify for a hero team but he IS a mutant as far as I remember.

 Black Canary would be one of them, I'm sure.

Bunker from the new TT is a muta-I mean Meta who was born with his powers, he'd be there I guess

Well to me the X-Men cover a couple different areas. People born with abilities, students in need of instruction to control their abilities and people who are hated or feared because of how they look. I could see Black Canary and Beast Boy but also Black Lightning's daughters, the younger Wildcat, Metamorpho perhaps due to his appearance, Rose and Joseph Wilson and maybe even Raven.

@Sir_Deadpool: What about people like the flash family that are connected tothe speed force or the Marvels connected to the power of gods or Animal man or resurrection Man? Did they have to be born with their abilities or could something have happened to them (like Static Shock)?

@DEGRAAF: thats a good question..In fact these persons must have been born with their power. I can not imagine one X-men who got his power later in life..or do you know someone?!

@Sir_Deadpool:

Cain Marko (juggernaut)

Human torch (according to x-men members list he is or was a part of the team)

Ink (is a normal human being that got tattoos from a mutant with the ability of giving powers thru his ink so anything he tattos becomes an ability to whomever got the tattoo)

Krakoa (the living island that gained its powers from nuclear experiments)

Liz Allen (from Spiderman, married Harry Osborn, i dont know how or why she would be on the team but she is listed)

Michael Pointer (gained his abilities thru absorbing all the lost powers of M-Day)

Moira MacTaggert (Scientist but not a mutant)

Omeg Sentinal (got her powers by Bastion during Operation: Zero Tolerance)

Rover (a future sentinal reprogrammed and is now Sentient)

Danger (used to be the X-mens danger room until gaining sentience)

Gonna assume this team takes place on an alt-earth as thats the only way it would work. The DC x-men would have to be headed up by a crippled Lex Luthor as he's the only ultra wealthy bald man I can think of (and though not telepathic he has immense brain power). I'm thinking Congorilla could fill in for beast. Icicle(the son of the original) I think would fill in for Iceman. For team leader and cyclops equivalent I'm thinking...well how bout..damn DC cyclops equivalent is hard. I'm thinkin' (and this is kinda cliche) a young Clark Kent only on this earth the heat vision is his first and only(initially) power to manifest and does so in nigh uncontrollable form. Warren is the easiest to find an equivalent for. I'd go with Zauriel. This version is born on earth and doesn't yet realize he is an "actual" angel, but who better to be DC's Angel than a real one. Lastly DC's marvel girl should be played by a time displaced Saturn Girl. Hell yeah.

Well I think that team pretty well would fill in the roles of the marvel X-Men and has enough quirkyness and irony relating to the DCU proper to provide for some interesting storyline.

Jericho was described as a mutant a few times in The New Teen Titans, his super power was a result of a mutation in his genes caused by the experiments on his dad (Deathstroke). There is also Captain Comet who was genetically altered due to radiation from a comet going overhead.. These are the only two I am aware of who are probably pure mutants.

I would say anyone who is a metahuman in the Dc universe would be an X-men in the Marvel universe.

Yeah, but the speedsters are considered meta and most of them weren't born speedsters but gained their powers through accident or experimentation. I'd put characters like that more on the same level as the FF or avengers. I'd agree though that any earthling born meta would be equivalent to a mutant though.

Mimic was with the X-Men back in the day. I believe he wasn't a mutant, but he could mimic the powers of mutants. So that's why he hung there. I think Krakoa & Danger are both technically mutants, just not humans. I can't remember human torch being an x-man... and a bunch of the others. Liz Allen?

The Marvel Mutants have the X-Gene, and are considered the next evolutionary step. A literal Mutant like Killer Croc is as similar to the Marvel Mutants than any other character.

Justifying DC's mutants couldn't really have anything to do with how they got their powers, etc, as Marvel Mutants have such a specific origin.

Ergo, I would think the OP is basically just saying which characters could you see as X-Men.

In this case, I would say any characters that are more diverse and different, e.g, characters that have or could be ostracised and victimised by racism and such, similar to how the X-Men have been subjected to the intolerance since their creation.

While on the topic of mutants, I just spoke to Bob...XD...and he said he'd be in town tomorrow.

So I'll get my artwork scanned and send it your way.

WildCATS aren't DC as far as I'm concerned, they haven't been introduced into the main DC Universe and were simply an part of an imprint.

Pretty much the Doom Patrol, since they preceded the X-Men anyway. 
 
That said, on a more specific level, I'm going to make a nine person team of DC heroes that could be considered their "X-Men"; 
 

  • Metamorpho 
  • Beast Boy
  • Robotman
  • Rebus
  • The Creeper
  • Etrigan
  • Dorothy Spinner
  • Crazy Jane

A living Island is a member of the X-Men? The Danger Room is an X-Man? A mutant with the power to tatoo powers onto people? Sorry fanboys but this s*** is just stupid. How you gonna take a living island on a mission? On topic: Beast Boy, Terra, Killer Croc, Aquaman/lad, Wonder Woman.. That's all I can think of who were born with powers. I don't think aliens like MM, Super, or Starfire should qualify.

Is there an X-gene equivalent in the DCU?
