    This is Hickman's third epic story line. He always loves two things, showing power corrupting and punish hubris.

Huh. I had not recognized that recurring theme.

    The question may become, why have the X-Men behave this way in their book? Think about it this way... after all is said and done, how much are humanity going to hate mutants NOW? How many mutants will want that taste of superiority they had?

    When the dust settles, the mutants will have already started what humans always feared they would, and the X-Men get a decent amount of the blame. Hated and feared like never before.

I totally agree with your assessment. Hickman's mutants are showing the world that they are ARE monsters but it's because of their supremacist attitudes and not their genetics. Having powers hasn't made them "better than" or "superior to" non-powered humans, and their choices and actions are proving it.
