Both got their powers from external sources after they were born.
I play games, not console wars. PC gaming sucks btw.

No, I'm not sure where you're getting this idea for Cyclops. His powers naturally developed.

This. Mutant is reserved for humans who naturally develop powers as they grow older, inhuman for those who require Terrigen mist, and enhanced, or something comparable, for everyone else who has acquired powers.
I'm not the nicest person you'll meet.
#'s are stupid. I don't watch YouTube links posted in threads.

Because Cyclops wasn't bitten by a radioactive cyclops.

mutants are born mutants

people who get bitten by radioactive spiders, injected with Super Soldier serum, or etc are mutates.
I made this sig to specifically waste your time.

I always wondered why they weren't all treated the same. Mutants are in a world the fears and hates them. Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four (although acquiring their powers from outside source) are the same thing.
No reason Johnny Storm is a celebrity and ice man s shunned.

The same reasons why people discriminate in the real world. People make excuses to praise one group and shun the other irrationally.

Not to say there isn't a degree of hypocrisy there, but the fear of mutants isn't just a question of superpowers. It's a genetics thing. Many mutants have passive powers that aren't a danger to anyone, but they're not looked on with any less hatred or fear.

Mutates are products of freak accidents or intentional designed experimentation, X-gene Mutants are people just like you or your neighbor who woke up one day transformed.

It's a fear from within, as opposed to a fear from the outside.
