Today I found out that I have five wisdom teeth. I'm not sure whether that makes me a mutant, and if so what my superpower is (although it probably involves eating), but I'm pretty sure it means my max WIS bonus is +5!
 

Why do we real world mutants get such crappy powers? Mine is Central Heterochromia. At best it helps me make people uncomfortable, if I stare at them.
Huh. I didn't know that was rare. I have it, too. I also have Hypermobile EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome), which is a very annoying and often painful mutation.

More rare to be born with it, as I was, than to develop it due to something like an infection. Bilateral heterochromia (two completely different coloured eyes) is even more rare. Mila Kunis developed it due to chronic inflammation in one eye that resulted in temporary blindness.

I hadn't heard of EDS before. Definitely sounds painful :(

Agreed. I don't even have the vestigial tailbone.

I mean... it is nice to be a rung up on the evolutionary path compared to most others, but it doesn't really provide me with anything other than those airs of superiority.

Heh... At the age of 48, I just recently started sprouting my one and only wisdom tooth.

My central heterochromia is pretty cool - a sunflower yellow starburst in the center, surrounded by an ice blue color laced with brown striations and a couple of random black dots, and a thin outer ring of grey...

I've actually got a number of minor mutations - I think I may be an original edition Gamma World character, having rolled them all randomly, lol.
Aside from the heterochromia, I'm also double-jointed, have the natural ability to dislocate my thumbs at will, the ability to wiggle my ears, and an extra-dense knot of cartilage in one ear, although that last one's not particularly interesting.
On the downside, however, having been born severely tongue-tied, and with one foot turned outward fifteen degrees farther than the other hasn't been particularly beneficial... <rolls eyes>

Cool :)

My father had blue eyes. My mother as green eyes. I ended up with an inner circle of green inside blue so people frequently say that I either have green or blue eyes, depending upon what colour clothes I'm wearing.

I have mine listed on my license as blue, but most people think they're grey or green depending on the light.

haha, on a similar note, I have supernumerary roots in molars and premolars. 4 and 3 roots instead of 3 and 2.

my superpower is paying extra for root canal treatment...

My condolances. A family I've known since I was a teenager, now several families as all the siblings have started their own, has EDS. So much problems with doctors not knowing about it, they really are zebras.

I had four wisdom teeth taken out when I was 16. In my late 30s I got a fifth that had to be removed. My last chance to be wise.

Yep. That's pretty much a perfect description of what my family has gone through, too. We only recently started getting answers, and even then almost all of the doctors either doesn't know that it exists, or think that it doesn't exist.
