New Vegas mutants[edit source]
The article probably needs updating with information and images of the Super Mutants seen in various Fallout: New Vegas screens. --Muaka 10:30, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
In some gaming website interview I saw a picture of the original Mariposa mutants with the lip straps(It was Marcus). Should we include a pic and information about that? http://static.zenimax.com/bethblog/upload/2010/08/FalloutNVBeta%202010-08-10%2010-34-44-28.jpg Pic. CANPoo 16:58, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

Lip Strap?[edit source]
The Pics of Harry and Lou show that super mutants use straps over their top lips. but why? what's the strap for and what would happen if they took it off?A Pickering 19:01, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
There is no confirmed reason for why the Marisopa Supermutants used straps over their top lips. We can just assume it was a stetical choice of the production team. Oddii02 22:18, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe it was some dev joke, or perhaps it was a way for showing which mutant is a leader. I mean, 90% of mutants were really stupid, so whit those straps attached, mutants show their teeth. Maybe it was a way a way of showing "I be boss" or something... :) Atomkilla 22:29, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
I concur. The lip strap probably serves a purpose, like making mutants seem more intimidating to their prey. It could also be that one of the side effects of FEV is making the upper lip limp and impeding speech and breathing. However, the even more idiotic, yet strangely ingenious (in figuring out how to maintain dangerous but high mantainence weapons like Gatling Lasers and propagating their species and somehow setting up supply lines, not to mention getting a Behemoth into the Capitol Building) East Coast strain have no need for the straps, so it may be a vestige of their former human selves exhibiting Mutant or tribal culture, indicating that they may have some memories if my theory (Freud-like as it is, being at once unprovable but not disprovable in an argument) is correct TJbrena 16:27, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
- It couldn't be due to impediment since Marcus talks fine. What I don't get is how they get the thing to stay in place. The only way I can see it is if they were missing some teeth for it to go through, or if they sewed it in. 188.8.131.52 17:58, February 20, 2011 (UTC)Kaz
It can't be to indicate leadership, as Harry had a lip strap as well. And he was a moron (though he WAS in something of a leadership role, wasn't he?). I'm pretty sure it was stylistic on the dev's part. It looks so . . . retarded and yet it obviously means SOMETHING to them. Like how someone with a bone through their nose looks 'savage' and uneducated to Westerners, and yet it is the height of fashion and dignity to those who use such decoration. Maybe it's like a well manicured hairstyle for Westerners? 184.108.40.206 16:58, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
The reason the Mariposa Supermutants wear the strap,is to hold their face uo their face would literaly,fall of if they removed the stap.User:Kaminoman

Marcus from Broken Hills looks so familiar to the one in Jacobstown. Wait, I think it is the same Marcus. The Unknown User 01:51, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
Plus, in the photograph for super mutants in Fallout: Online, the person is wearing a jumpsuit with the numbers 13. Vault 13 perhaps from Fallout 1 and 2?
That's because HE IS THE SAME MARCUS, and the jumpsuit thing is because FO:ONLINE was called PROJECT:V13 (Vault 13) before.
