... That might be a bad title, now I think about it. I don't hate the X-Men as a CONCEPT. I like the movies, and one of my favorite animated TV-shows are X-Men Evolution. And some of the really good comic I have read are in fact X-Men related(my favorite is Exiles). BUT...
Well, were to start?
First of all, I am not sure that mutants belong in a superhero-universe. There is a lot of stuff that doesn't make sense. Like, how come the FF are loved, but mutants are bad? And so on and so on.
But its more than that.
Like, If the mutants want to be treated like equals, why do they walk around in costumes? Look, lets just say, for the sake of the argument, that a self-authorized team, who take care of "mutant businesses" with high-tech plains and what-not, is a good idea. WHY do they wear superhero costumes? If they alienate themselves from humanity, the chances of getting less feared and hated are smaller than my collection of Youngblood comics(I have none). A uniform is one thing, but COME ON!
And is it just me, or are the X just a tiny little bit... well... hypocrite? I mean, just look a Xavier. He claims that not all mutant will abuse there powers, if they are right guided, so in theory, a mutant aren't that much more dangerous than anyone else, beside that they need more help and education. HE ABUSE HIS POWER!!! How come nobody talks about the Cerebro? HE scans peoples mind, THAT is abuse of power. Its not like he thinks about this. Its just; Oh, I need information, I must go to the Cerebro. And he hired Mystique to do some of his dirty(and very illegal) work. Oh, wait, HE DIDN'T! He kidnapped her from the authorizes and threatened her with getting her back in the electric chair, if she didn't follow orders. And he lot Emma FLIPPING Frost join the X-Men. She is flipping evil, and abuse her power even MORE than him.
And what was the whole idea about the island?
And dear lord, are they WHINY! Look, one thing is that the talk about there problems, but in the end its just annoying. In fact, the whole A vs X started because Cyclops were busy whining to Cap about how he never helps mutants. In fact, I already made a cement about this in my CI5P about A vs X http://comicsin5panels.blogspot.dk/2013/09/avengers-vs-x-men-in-5-panels.html. Look, I am a white boy with a father from Iran, raised in the ghetto. Do you think THAT was a cakewalk? Oh coarse not, but I do not whine about it, like, for example, in Uncanny Avengers.
You see? Rouge is so busy with complaining that she doesn't listen to other opinions long enough to give an intelligent answer. THAT is what Uncanny Avengers need to be a good book: intelligent mutants, besides Alex Summers. And how come the mutants are so pissed at Alex for saying that he doesn't like the "M-word"? All he says is that he want to be looked at like a person, THEN a mutant. Like the most of you, who have a "color"(stupid word) want to be looked at as a person first, and THEN as a part of a culture. In fact, I'm pretty sure that what Alex said is what Professor X dream is all about.
