Why do they praise criminals(Norman Osborne) and shun out their heroes?

Well..Dc citizens aren't much better...they nominated Lex Luthor for president...However, what I don't get about the Marvel populous is how they hate mutants, but other meta humans are A Okay

On their perspective, hating the heroes makes sense, I mean, they are responsible for the Stanford, Civil War, WWH, etc...

Just imagine living on a earth that everytime heroes fight on the streets against the villains and destroying everything on the path, that is terrible, Norman Osborn might be a nutcase, but he really believed that he was doing the right thing, and he killed the skrull queen, he had a terrible past, but not for that reason he is going to be like it all the time.

Well, I think that because metahumans are not considered as such, the metahumans cosider themselves as humans with superpowers, people see them as humans, also Charles and his X-men were the only ones that protected the humanity, arround the world we had mutant terrorists and horrible accidents that involved mutants unable to control their superpowers.

But how do they know heroes like Captain America, the Hulk, Spider-Man, or Ms. Marvel aren't Mutants. How can they discern who's Mutant and who's not without said person saying they are. It's just a bit unrealistic to have dozens of super-powered people running around and people are okay with it, yet they treat the X-Men like freaks and monsters, when once get down to the core of it, all of them have super-powers, whether it was through birth or a random accident or whatever. Plus who's to say that the Fantastic Four aren't Mutants, more importantly does the public even know that their son, Franklin's a Mutant? If not, do they treat him differently because he's Mr. Fantastic's son? It's these kinds of things that make it hard to believe that after all these years, the X-Men are hated and feared while the rest of the superhero community are given parades.

I think it's pretty hypocritical of people, the only difference between mutants and humans is that mutants carry the X gene, however in many heroes cases, their own genetics have been mutated as well, such as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, a good chunk of the Avengers etc. Yes a lot of mutants are terrorists and criminals, but I'd wager even more metahumans are criminals than mutants given the mutant race, even before M Day was a small minority.
