Seems to me the hate for mutants in the Marvel U is way out of whack. We've been told so many times how humanity hates mutants and the very likely future is that mutants will be killed or separated from humanity.

Now I can believe the government would feel threatened and some of the public would too. But wouldn't there be a movement among humans that is pro-mutant? We've seen individuals stand up for mutants but never as a group.

Certainly in our world, whites stood with blacks during the Civil Rights Movement and straights have stood with gays during their struggles. One would think there would be those on the mutants side (spearheaded by parents/loved ones of mutants) that would try to tip the scales. The San Francisco move made sense along these lines but that didn't last very long.

Of course, the mutants being friendless and on the verge of a holocaust is more dramatic but we've been on this "the hate against mutants is worse than it's ever been" kick for 30 years now. Let's have some peaks and valleys to it.

I've often thought that Marvel Earth never fully got over the eugenics movements of the 19th and early 20th centuries. So much is still tied to Nazis and super soldiers and genetic supremacy.
