The Marvel Cinematic Universe has it’s benefits and problems, one of the latter being how Marvel prior to forming Marvel Studios (which was before and why Disney came calling) had licensed out Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men since they didn’t plan on making their own movies. Disney/Marvel had to buy 20th Century Fox in order to get the Fantastic Four and X-Men back (though I doubt that was the reason why) but Sony, despite having only three successes with the wall-crawler, holds on to Spider-Man as tight as they can. In order to get Spidey in the MCU like fans wanted many hoops had to be jumped through in order to make it happen, including major alterations to Peter Parker and his circle of friends.
Well Michael Williams, writing for Fansided’s “Bam Smack Pow” superhero site, wants to add one more change as he feels the best way to introduce the mutants into the MCU from their former licensing purgatory is to make Peter a mutant. It makes more sense in the context of the article, but as you’ll see it’s an idea I am not on board with as it will not only make the translation errors worse than the Sony deal has made it but comes with problems of its own.
