dude, you seriously live in some magical world. The minute some dude blows up a building by touching it or deflect bullets with telekinesis during a heist, there would be a public outcry. And sure people are going to love the heroes, but only for so long. Xmen isn't the only story that explains this. The disbandment of Justice League and Pixar's The Incredibles explain this.

Plus the U.N would be regulating this shit anyway, banning the limit of active heroes. because if you tell me nations wouldn't ttry to weaponize this shit then you live ina fantasy land of sugar and rainbows.

You seriously don't see conflict being born of a time when random people could be born with anything from "summon bread" to accidentally liquifying people on too close a proximity?

Imagine a regular misanthrope, who has the power to shut down people's brains, and think of how that wouldn't shake the entire country.

If you're going to take every plot as a total literal interpretation and expect it to have absolutely no plotholes, then I doubt you're going to find a lot (if any) of plots you like, period.

There's more evil people and more conflict in their world because it would make for one fuck hell of a boring series otherwise. And having your city saved by a mutant doesn't really help when the mutants also *cause* the cities to need saving. That'd be like if one of the flight 93 passengers was Muslim--do you think that would have stopped the people who hate Muslims from hating Muslims?

Besides, whose to really say how many people would hold hatred if mutants existed. It would kind of suck, knowing there's this group of people out there who have this rediculous, massive unfair advantage that you can't do a damn thing about. Now this group of people start fighting amongst themselves and wrecking your shit, as if being rediculously more capable than you wasn't enough for them.

I'm incredibly sick and confused so read if you want but be warned they might sound like the ravings of a madman
mutants are suppose to be a metaphor for racism and whatever but it's so not... it's not discrimination, it's utter fear. Utter justified fear! You have beings that can destroy planets, manipulate time, make you do anything they want, and alter reality. These beings are incredibly powerful and you have a right to try and protect yourself against them. It's not discrimination; it's justified. Sentinels are a good idea but how they're handled is bad.
Take batman. He had a plan on how to stop each member of the Justice League. Not because he didn't trust them, but because in their line of work mind control is possible, or simply a bad day. You need ways of stopping a god...
Here come the Sentinels. If implemented correctly, the Sentinels wouldn't just gather up mutants and put them in a Jewish type camp. They would be there to stop any rogue mutant. Putting mutants to fight other mutants would just set a bias for the person you're trying to stop.
Having the gov know who the mutants are isn't a big thing. They know who cops are and who the president is. Those two are important figures with power. However... okay, getting too dizzy here
Bottom line is the gov doesn't have to be that bad, mutants aren't discriminated against for the sake of discrimination, instead precautions are being made justifiably (piss one off and you're dead), Sentinels could be used for good

They are saving the city from the other mutants though.

Or the X-Men stories are an allegory to the American Civil Rights movement. Where a tremendous amount of people did follow the social norms without introspective thought. Confusingly Professor X is supposed to be interpreted as a Dr. Martin Luther King figure and Magneto as Malcolm X. As stupid it may seem to you now, this conflict was very much realistic and part of a world that existed not too long ago. No matter how smart a person is, people are almost always stupid.

But isn't it mostly the military behind the sentinels that are after the X-men, plus the Brotherhood which is also made up of mutants.

There are some people that are reasonably scared of mutants for their ability to fuck shit up and want the military to take action, but it's not a blanketed hatred. It's mostly fear.
#7 - quiescat (13 hours ago) [-]
all that blows up in about 5 secs when it dawns on you that if professor x would just drop some pavlov's dog level warm fuzzies on every one the number of meta-Hitler would reduced drastically, seeing how all but a few spawn from the fact that some form of "muh oppression"( this follows threw why lots of the humans go nutso as well).

then again a comic where wolverine is the world greatest beer drinking champion might not appeal to many
#6 - anonymous (13 hours ago) [-]
I don't disagree with you, but if we were to entertain that the idea of mutants weren't fictional, can you honestly say that the USA government ( or many other governments for that matter) would be accepting? We always fear what we don't understand, and I doubt the general public would be understanding of people with such large mutations. Not to mention the fact that those in power are often paranoid of those who may challenge them, rational or not. But I digress, a real word scenario doesn't have much place in a fictional argument.

They'd be handled pretty well, all things considered. I don't see the problem. There would be a registration act, but without SHIELD and a bunch of super human icons to dramawhore and turn the whole thing into a fucking war, it would go pretty smoothly.

Nobody is going to object to it when some people can juggle cars or shoot fire out of their hands. Least of all the people who can juggle the cars and shoot the fire, if they're smart.

The American constitution already protects individual rights and maintains a degree of accountability, and every first world nation that matters imitates it to one degree or another.

The various humanaties organizations would jump all over the opportunity to champion mutant causes, because that's literally what they do for a living; champion causes. There would hardly be a derth of voices raised in their defense.

Plus, people with useful powers are basically assured gainful employment in relevant job fields. Why maintain a crane when you can pay someone with super strength triple the normal wage? You're still coming out ahead, and it's great PR.

This is the entire reason why the X-Men equation is so absurd when you stop and think about it. The entire world is opposed to them, except for a small handful of highly specific individuals? Nobody stands for Mutant Rights except for Xavier? Literally half of all people think it's a bad idea to stick a GPS on people who can fly or teleport?

The entire premise of the X-Men depends on a world that literally runs on angsty teenage "the whole world is against me" rebellion as a fundamental cosmic principle.

Except that's not how the world works. There's a reason the X-Men are aimed so strongly at the teenage demographic, and there's a reason why older fans who have matured tend to move away from the X-Men (excepting a few favorite specific characters) and into other groups, like the Incredibles or the Avengers.

The X-Men assumes the whole world is unreasonable except for them.

Look how well we cope with muslims.

Literature and hippies saying they're not all terrorists everywhere, but we spew hatred and abuse at them randomly. Invade their countries, start fights with them.

Mutants would be worse. If you saw a guy with half his face missing walking down the street, how many people would flip the fuck out?

We live in a crazy society.

The thing is, you'll never know which ones are actually mutant Hitler until they get into power. Hitler was just a soldier before he gained political momentum. Magneto was just an abused Jewish boy before he gained full control of his powers.
