American satirist and writer Mark Twain was born on November 30, 1835, exactly two weeks after the comet's perihelion. In his biography, he said, "I came in with Halley's comet in 1835. It's coming again next year (1910), and I expect to go out with it. The Almighty has said no doubt, 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.' " Twain died on April 21, 1910, the day following the comet's subsequent perihelion
# November 25 - Andrew Carnegie, American industrialist and philanthropist (d. 1919)
# November 29 - Empress Dowager Cixi of China (d. 1908 )
# November 30 - Mark Twain, American author and humorist (d. 1910)

Every 70 years Haley's passes over the Earth. By 1835 mankind had developed with enough subtle mutations from the radiation that the full force of it's influence could begin. Everyone born under the comet's passing, including the three above as famous examples, would grow into adulthood only to discover amazing superhuman abilities. They would be the generation that shaped the world, until the comet's return in 1910, depowering those of them left alive and setting up the next generation of great individuals in the process.
