Anyone else think that Niko’s Fifteen Man Squad should get the same treatment as Dutch’s Gang?
Rockstar’s stories that are grounded and grim tend to be the most captivating in my opinion.

Mutants are BORN with powers due to something triggering in their DNA
Since Spider-Man got his powers via being bitten by a spider being experimented on, and the FF got their powers due to a mishap with cosmic energy, they are not classified as mutants

Mutants are born with the X-gene. They had their powers from birth, even though they don’t typically manifest until puberty. There’s also a really, really stupid plot point that the X-gene makes them the only species on Earth not host to a sentient space bacteria living in symbiosis with the rest of life on Earth, and that same bacteria makes non-mutants instinctually hateful of mutants. But the less we talk about that stupid plot point the better.
Spiderman and the FF are classified as “mutates”. Not only were they not born with their powers but they don’t possess the X-gene to qualify them as mutants. There was an interesting What If? about that, where mutants conquered the world. Spiderman was able to live in relative comfort because he was thought of as a mutant, only to get mobbed and lynched when he was outed as a mutate. So yeah, there’s a difference.

Again, muntants were born with it and the general public thing that it’s “wrong”
meanwhile with the othes, they were normal people who got their powers from external factors (and in Cap’s case, he’s pretty much a normal guy, just a lot more strong and durable. That and he’s a war hero too)

That and it’s also I believe the possibility anyone could be a mutant and no one could know.
The likes of The Fantastic Four are like public figures and Spider-Man of course has been made out to be a menace by Jamison so he’s often treated with mistrust by the public (or use to be anyway.
But like I said with mutants anyone can be one such as your neighbor reading your mind planting thoughts that aren’t yours the fear and hatred part is born out that kind of paranoia.

Yoooo.
So apparently there’s a character in Jujutsu Kaisen whose ability is literally to “turn any situation he finds funny into reality. This ability also affects Gojo Satoru.” So technically if he found it funny for Gojo’s ability to not work, then Gojo’s absolutely overpowered ability WON’T work. The worst part is: he doesn’t know how his power works. He thinks funny things just happen to him.
BRO this is HUGE! Mofo could practically destroy everybody if he had a sick morbid sense of humor. Dude recovers from any injuries, and the only injuries he seems to have are ones he think would funny to have, like missing front teeth and bleeding nose and burnt hair, (which he recovered from soon after). So far he’s just been tanking what would otherwise be lethal hits and shrug them off in a comical manner because it’s funny that way.
We have a Looney Tunes character in Jujutsu Kaisen! Oh my effing…No. No you can’t have that. That’s unfair.

Fortunately, Takaba (the JJK comedian) has currently a thankfully very strict rules about his comedy. He doesn’t allow “red” in his shows. So no deaths and no serious injuries.
Which means, so far he himself doesn’t have anything is damaging at all. SO, he can’t be hurt in any significant way, and he doesn’t allow himself to hurt others either. Which means any fight he’s in would just be a joke fight where nobody is hurt, the fight isn’t going anywhere, and he’ll just be very annoying for his opponent.

What are some Force abilities/powers that only neutral users can use?
Basically things that neither Light or Dark leaning sensitive individuals can pull off or lose the ability to do so once they cross a certain dedication point.
Or Star Wars really just gonna keep the whole “THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND” nonsense up its ass?

@CaptainXtra
I don’t think there’s anything specifically neutral users can use; I assume that the only real difference between the Light and Dark sides of the force is mindset, which controls the ‘output’ so to speak. It’s simply that the ‘Jedi’ mindset makes it easier to do some stuff, while the ‘Sith’ mindset makes it easier to do other stuff.

It’s technically all “middle ground” more or less. There are very few powers that one side can use that the other can’t.
It’s more that they won’t. A Sith would be fully capable of using force healing or force courage, but would likely see it as pointless or weak. Jedi can use force choke and force lightning, and the light side even has its own special version of lightning called emerald lightning which focuses on incapacitating rather than killing.
Using certain powers can push you toward the dark side, of course, such as life drain or force crush.

I keep getting stuff in my recommended articles from Gerry Conway, a comic writer who co-created the Punisher.
I don’t think he knows much of the character outside his own stories.
He recently said something about a new Punisher taking Frank’s place. That’s not a bad idea. It hasn’t been done well in the past, but a talented writer could pull it off. The weird thing is he specifically wanted the replacement to be a black veteran. Well, we have a black Punisher.

Outlaw, a British man who idolized
Vigilantes. He wasn’t a veteran as far as I remember, though I haven’t read his comics in some time. Outlaw later rejected his old ways in favor of not killing anyone.

No wonder I felt like I seen him before! Is this version modeled after the guy in this video?!
The resemblance is there! Look at his outfit! Even to his goofy friendly expression! Can’t be a coincidence. Artists dont DO coincidence.
