    The first difference between Uncle Axel and
Joseph Strorm is that they both have different

emotions and
personalities; while they are both related to David, each display different

attitudes towards David.  Joseph Strorm
is the father of David. He
is deeply religious and

about mutations and blasphemy. He is disturbed quite easily by anything

from the
norm. In other words, he is not accepting even against anything minor. Joseph
is cold

has the ability to kill people if they are not born the right way. He is bad

show how Uncle Axel and Joseph Strorm behave

as different
characters. While Joseph has a high temper and gets angry, Uncle Axel is

as a
subject, Uncle Axel as a helper. Taken collectively however, their differences

the law of
attraction coming in to play. They both are in the same family.
