Deadpool is an X-Men. But the Hulk isn't. Why?
In one movie, they said Mutants get their powers while going through puberty and experiencing stress. Deadpool was given a shot of something and underwent torture to get his powers. The Hulk, who isn't an X-Men, went through some process to get his powers. Like Deadpool. So, why is Deadpool considered a Mutant when he had an origin story like Spider-Man, etc?
Thanks, Shifting Sands

Mutants are born with special genes that give them their powers. Sometimes they can be dormant and that was Deadpool's case. He was shot with a fluid that would activate them when put under extreme stress. But the power was already inside him from birth.
The Hulk, Banner, was a normal non-mutant guy who hit himself with gamma radiation and gained his powers that way. It wasn't a power he was born with, it was one he gained from something else. Spider-Man is the same way, normal kid and radioactive spider.

Deadpool isnt x-men. X-men are all natural born mutants. Even wolverine who was experimented on as adult already had healing and bone-claws from young age.
