"Hi. My name is Eric Mattias and I have the world's suckiest mutant power. If you don' believe me, just read this book and you'll find out for sure. I live at Xavier's School for Gifted Students, which is like home base for the mutants of the world. You've probably seen mutants on TV and learned about them in school, and you probably wish that you could go to school with a bunch of people who have awesome powers. Because you probably think you would get to hang out with the X-Men and fight evil mutants and do stuff like that, but guess what? You would be wrong! Instead, I have to go to school and I play on my computer and I'm alone a lot because -- like I said before -- I have a sucky mutant power. So anyway, this book is sort of about my life as a mutant and it's about my worst day ever. And Wolverine's worst day ever, too. So read it. Or don't. It's up to you"--Page 4 of cover.
