Pretty much self-explanatory as the title suggests. And yes it is coined after a provocative, well-known slogan intentionally.
Anyway, maybe there was a thread like this, but I'm not in the mood to search for it and honestly, it's mess in here so who cares? But I do want some of your personal insight on how mutant metaphor should work, could work or would it even still be needed. We all know what is the mainstream perception of what mutants are reflective of. Some passionately agree with that, other not so much. But one thing I'm pretty convinced is certain, it has gotten stale, and more importantly, irrelevant. Back in the day, minorities weren't as well represented as they are now so it was somewhat of an alternative. But when you have the real thing, why would you settle for something that only wishes it was the original thing? Or more importantly rarely even worked that way?
My question is, how can mutant metaphor be properly readapted to this fresh reality of now so it won't feel redundant and forced? And if it shouldn't, what should be there for X-men to stand out? And generally, what are your ideas and thoughts on the issue in general my fellow X-heads?
