Abstract: The actions, anomalies, and quantization conditions allow the M2-brane andthe M5-brane to support, in a natural way, structures beyond Spin on theirworldvolumes. The main examples are twisted String structures. This alsoextends to twisted String^c structures, which we introduce and relate totwisted String structures. The relation of the C-field to Chern-Simons theorysuggests the use of the String cobordism category to describe the M2-brane.
