Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time to take a look at another mutant team. This week’s team, the Savage Land Mutates. Now, let’s begin!
The Savage Land Mutates are a group of supervillians that first appeared in X-Men #62 from 1969. This team was artificially mutated by Magneto, which gave them superpowers. They became staunch supporters of the magnetic villain and his clash with the X-Men. After a short period of time, Magneto abandoned the team, and left the group to do as they please. They continue to be common enemies of the Avengers, X-Men, and Spider-Man.

The mutant known as Brainchild is the leader of the Savage Land Mutates. He is incredibly intelligent, and has a very easy time controlling people’s minds. He once brainwashed Storm into battling her teammates, but was quickly defeated by the X-Men.

Lani was artificially enhanced by Magneto. She gained the power to manipulate any male she would come in contact with. This power is rendered useless, however, if it’s used on a woman. Also, Wolverine appears to not be affected by this.
