Marvel Makes Another Mutant Into A Non-Mutant – Squirrel Girl's Been Perlmuttered (UPDATE)

When Squirrel Girl came onto the scene, in her very first story, she told Iron Man that she was a mutant, but didn't like people to know.

But, like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, it looks as if that is to be taken away from her. In the first issue of her new post-Secret Wars series, it's made clear. She had medical tests and everything to prove it…

Could it be that Marvel have plans for her, that being a mutant – and thereby related to the X-books and Fox franchises – would be problematic?
