Batman's lack of powers is what seperates him from the Moon Knight.

You draw a good parallel for multiple reasons.  Your argument about even the "good" mutants/vampires being extremely dangerous is compelling, and I'm sure, were either of these scenarios real, would be blaring from most pundits mouths as a ligitimate threat to humans everywhere.  Unfotunately that is exactly the type of vitriol that causes very bad things to happen to innocent people.

 

Your post is an excellent obsevation of the human reaction to the unkown.

They are all pretty dispicable.  All of these characters with the exception of Casandra Nova, are scary because they seems to be exactly the type of people that would spring up IRL were mutants ever to become a reality.  They are all based on fear and hate, and are far too realistic (cyborg bodies excluded).

 

I'm not sure it is possible to identify the worst one, but it seems that Bolivar Trask has probably had the most impact of any of them on the list.  Yes, Casandra Nova did kill 16 million in one shot, but she used a technology developed by trask to do it.

 

It would be like somebody detonating a nuclear bomb.  Who is more guilty: The person who detonates it, or the person who designed it and built it?

Claremont did a great job with the X-Men while he was writing them, and introduced a lot of elements to the book that are still relevant today.  But like most artists who do great work, leave, and try to come back, it's never quite the same.

 

I'm glad he left and made room for some other great writers who have moved the X-Men along to where they are now, but any true X-Men fan has to appreciate hs original work with the title.
