X-Men of the Ocean: The Uncanny Lined Seahorse
Part Toad, part Mystique: lined seahorses are some of the most extraordinary creatures in the ocean, even if they don’t seem like much at first. They’re small, rather bland looking, and poor swimmers for sea-dwellers, but don’t let that fool you; their ability to move their eyes in independent directions, grip aquatic vegetation with their tails, and camouflage themselves to ambush prey would make them right at home on Xavier’s—or Magneto’s—team of mutants.
