The mutant’s brain is literally too large for its skull.  The result is that the mutant suffers two plus the power score modifier permanent penalty to both Intelligence and Will Power due to the pressure on the brain. If any attack strikes the skull, the mutant must instantly make a saving throw versus death or be reduced to 1d10 hit points and is unconscious for 30 minus the power score in hours. Anyone looking at the mutant will see where the brain tissue is pressing against the skull itself, deforming the head.
