    Default Is it still true that mutants can't catch AIDS?

    That used to be the gimmick in the 90s...is that still what they are running with?

    Like all things Austin, this is not to be spoken of, on penalty of being shut in a room with Nurse Annie sharing her Iceman/Havok golden shower fic.

    But for a serious answer, no, I don't think anyone has bought that up in forever.

    Sweet Jack Kirby but is there one thing, one of Austin run that is worth remebering?!?
    I'm open minded about X-men at whole, you know, but even I, a Shark Girl fan, can't stomach lot of Austin run(Stacy-X was an intriguing idea with lot of pential but develioped with the finesse and subtlety of an horny 14 years old).
    The Nadir was when....Angel and Husk did it on the porch of tha Guthrie family, in front of her mother...killing poor Husk character for times to go...Just talking abnotu it made me want to have shower...arrgh

    Add-on: found this online https://comicdomwrecks.wordpress.com...austens-x-men/ I think it would help rembering those dark times to prevent them to come back....

    It was never true.

    Husk just didn't know what she was talking about.

    I like the fact he made it canon that Jubilee loved Skin (Angelo) and wished she would have had sex with him before he died!

    I want to know in what title and issue did the notion of mutants being immune to HIV/AIDS actually surface...

    "Off panel", is a laughable defense.

    Yep! It was a conversation she had with Husk. I'll have to post the scans later!

    She tells her she wishes she would have got naked with him.

    Many humans with ancestors from areas particularly ravaged in the Middle Ages by the plague have a immunity to AIDS. Simple and relatively small biologic quirks that allowed their ancestors to survive the waves of plague in Europe mean they are immune to HIV so it actually doesn't take much genetic variation even among ordinary people to make you immune.

    Biologists discover why 10% of Europeans are safe from HIV infection

    We are talking tiny genetic differences do actually give you immunity to HIV, nothing like having a gene that gives you super powers. 1 in 10 posters here of European ancestry are immune already though without a full DNA test you would never know it.

    Well, if no writer has actually retconned it then that must still be the case though it hasn't been touched on since for some reason, lol

    It was UXM Vol 1 #427. I just recently read Austen run in its entirety for shits and giggles (and boy it really was something!) so this is still freshly in my mind.

    Here's even the panels from the actual book:

    He just says it with such absolute certainty. You would of thought Dark Beast or Sinister would of said this.

    O'k, according to adult Warren, mutants can't acquire AIDS/HIV -- but, in the past they've acquired the "Legacy Virus", and most recently "M-Pox" -- IMHO, both afflictions are analogies of AIDS/HIV.
