      Excalibur were accepted as Britains first line of Heroes and seemed immune to the politics elsewhere in the X-Books.

    Most of Excalibur weren't mutants and it did help to be led by the UK's version of Captain America, who is also a multidimensional hero to boot, married to someone mystically attached to the British Isles. Even when the roster had the likes of Pete Wisdom, Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler and Wolfsbane I never saw it as a mutant or political book and their mysteries were well contained within their pages.

Actually with the exception of Captain Britain(and one can argue about his non-mutant status) all of the members were mutants, including Meggan. Cerise as alien was also a non-mutant.

    In a sense Excalibur was the Aveengers without the federal interference.

I agree.
I think, it did hurt the book a lot, that the writers post-Davis turned it back into just another X-Book, when it had started as superhero teambook.
