Saw this thread on CBR yesterday, talking about how kids born in the early 2000s and late 90s have limited exposure to Xmen and don't even know the popular ones
So today at church I asked one of my friends who his favorite 5 X-men were, now this is a dude I talk about godzilla, Kong, power rangers, avengers and CW DC shows with, but he could only name wolverine as an X-man he knew stuff about (he didn't even like wolverine), then he said he didn't like them, that from what he heard they can't Control and use their powers, then tried to use "that girl with mind powers, what's her name" as an example. :( as a Jean grey fan that was painful, so I told him nevermind.
Now I have this two annoying little twins as cousins, was questioning them on their favorite superheroes, but all they could name were avengers, the only Xmen they knew were cyclops and wolverine.
The danger is real people, the X-men are becoming obscure early 90s nostalgia fads, have you experienced similar situations, or do you have experiences that disprove this.
