Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Michael Allred.

Mutalien's codename and real name were revealed in the X-Statix group entry in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 13 (2010).

Mutalien's height and weight were impossible to determine, as he was never seen close enough to any other character whose height and weight had been officially determined. Also, his eye color was impossible to determine, as he was only seen in one panel, in which his eyes were closed.
