Sentry, Iceman, Reed Richards, Quicksilver
I liked Polaris as Pestilence but that's just cuz I like polaris. For new Horsemen, idrk but I think it would be funny if they just found people with names similar to the horsemen titles, like Warpath for War or something like that
Honestly anything with mutants, my dream would be Hellfire Gala, I honestly think it would be amazing as like a 5 episode mini series but obviously it would take ages of buildup and previous movies and stuff
@Lagvaldemag ey lag, long time no see! What's up with the copypasta?
Uh just the blatant queerbaiting with Kate Pryde
They've been queerbaiting us with Rachel and Kate for years and I hate it
Kate Pryde. Just... Kate Pryde.
Well mutants certainly are, though whether they'll explicitly be called xmen is unclear.
I mean yeah, though I'd be careful because character limits are incredibly inconsistent in comics
I'd just be ecstatic because I wouldn't have to deal with dysphoria (im trans mtf so waking up as a cis woman with superpowers is literally a dream, and a billion fanfictions come true)
Ooh yeah, maybe it would be more of a flash tv show situation, where there are a lot of good ones, and a lot of criminals
I imagine a situation like in the show The Gifted is most likely, basically mutants aren't explicitly disallowed, but they lose a lot of rights if someone makes a claim that they could be dangerous (which obviously is pretty easy, especially with younger mutants without a grip on their powers), and they can be detained in like mental facilities without trial just by the prosecutors claiming they have some mental disorder.
There's also the purifiers, who similarly to the comics, are just a hate group, except now they're nationwide, largely supported, and have much less restraint
Like dude I get what you mean, I'm trans, and obviously it's an allegory. But mutants just objectively are dangerous, I'm not saying that as an insult, it's a common story thread in X-Men for them to hurt somebody with their powers, and feel bad about it. it just isn't even close to a 1:1 allegory, it's just so far from it.
Also, I get that "the narrative of danger was also a common narrative used to justify homophobia and transphobia", I've been told to my face I shouldn't be allowed to use the proper bathroom because I'm a menace, but it's not at all the same thing. Let's use cyclops as an example. Whether he likes it or not, the mere act of looking at someone could murder them with lasers. Trans people arent dangerous. Gay people arent dangerous. Mutants are.
Whether or not you understand allegory, you have to take it with regards to logic. It doesn't make sense to claim mutants aren't dangerous just because gay people aren't.
Anyways, I hope you understand what I'm saying
There are differences between mutants and LGBT people. For one, they're literally just dangerous. This is touched on in a lot of X-Men media, where there are mutants who want to remove their powers because they hurt people around them (rogue in last stand, leo in the gifted). And sure, now they've got Krakoa, but in irl countries they would definitely have a DOFP situation. We might not go full sentinel, but we've already seen detainment camps for immigrants in the US, muslims in china, etc.
Luckily, they dont exist, but it would be a more complicated moral discussion than anything we've ever seen if they did.
Uh let's be honest though, slyme, mutants are hardly a perfect allegory for LGBT people. What would be the equivalent of Xavier's school? Conversion therapy? Teaching them how to be less gay to fit in with the cishets?
Thank you so much!
Abomination's ears freak me out, so let's get em outta here
[@Lagvaldemag I just read the entire post, idk why, but i can rejoin if you want, or I can just continue being under Brainflight's mind control (I'm like 80% sure that's where Tali is) so just let me know what's best]
