#mutants are a metaphor

People ask why I like the X-Men so much. Shit like this.

Stan Lee made X-Men to address all the social issue through his passion: comics. That’s why X-Men is generally independent from his others works. Professor X represented Martin Luther King Jr while Magneto represented Malcom X. When the mutants were forced to register as mutants, that represented the Jews being forced to wear the Star of David. He even addressed gay rights. There was a disease that was spreading rapidly. It was believed by the general public to be mutant-based disease. Incredible hostility towards mutants was a result of the disease. This represented the AIDS outbreak in the 80s that was believed to be a “gay disease”. There are tons more.

The X-men titles have always been years ahead of any other in dealing with diversity and social injustices
