Not only does David’s perspective of the mutants change, his entire belief is questioned the second he meets the first catalyst of David changing groups, Sophie. On the way back home, David realises that Sophie is a mutant, asking himself that “surely [it] couldn’t be enough to make her ‘hateful in the sight of God’ (14).
