So recently a lot of change has been happening in the snail community. Six years after a global ban on a chemical that once appeared in the paint on ship hulls, the number of female marine snails with penises has declined. Meaning that less female snails is growing penises and exploding due to it. (Yeah, give that a few seconds to sink in.)
Anyway, so I was discussing this penis-snail-exploding thing with a few friends and if the snails would be mutants. One thing lead to another and I said X-men as snails would be a cool read. Tweeted about it and a friend of mine created the above image.
