I am an avid film enthusiast with a passion for creative writing. My favourite things in life are writing about; film, popular culture and current affairs; watching films and looking at penguins. One day I hope to be getting paid more than I deserve for doing all of these professionally (not the penguin part - that will still be a hobby). View all posts by thenumbereightytwo

    I wasn’t sure myself so did a little research into the definition of a mutant and came up with this:

    “a mutant is an individual, organism, or new genetic character, arising or resulting from an instance of mutation, which is a base-pair sequence change within the DNA of a gene or chromosome of an organism resulting in the creation of a new character or trait not found in the wild type. The natural occurrence of genetic mutations is integral to the process of evolution.”

    I think the Xenomorph fits into this model, especially concerning “the creation of a new character or trait not found in the wild type”. As we know the Xenomorph changes and adapts with each new host and in my opinion, here lies the mutation of the species.

    A little bit of a stretch I know but I really wanted to include the Xenomorph!

    Is a Xenomoprh considered a mutant? I think that’s just the species. lol.
