I'm just curious.. but how many superheroes are parents in Marvel?
I can't seem to think of many. And I don't mean cloning, adopting or some other similar way. Just babies born from love.
 
I know of Luke Cage and Hulk but after that my mind is kind of stuck.

Nightcrawler and the Scarlet Witch had Nocturne, but that was alternate reality. Beast and Cecilia didn't have kids.

Lots of Marvel characters have kids. Especially if you include MU2. But yeah, prime example. Magneto is father to Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Polaris. Scarlet Witch is mother to Wiccan and Speed.

Super heroes don't have time to have kids- meanwhile the villains are breeding like rabbits.
I'm pretty sure Spider-man had a baby but it got retconned.  
Xavier had Legion somehow- I think he didn't show up until he was like 30 though.
Villains off the top of my head- Apocalypse had Holocaust and according to Apocalypse vs Dracula he has a whole family lineage that operate as a cult.
Magneto's not always a villain, but he is an antagonist- he had Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. 
 I think Storm had a son in TAS.
Apparently writers feel like raising a child isn't a great topic for comic books.  I'm guessing they want to leave their home life at home and use the comics as a way to escape that-- or they never leave the office and don't spend time with their kids. Or don't have kids.

Wolverine had Daken 
 
Sue and Reed Richards have two kids 
 
Luke Cage and whats her name have a kid 
 
Namor had a son 
 
Magneto not only had Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Polaris, but a daughter who was killed as well. 
 
Isn't Hank Pym someone's father? That chick from Young Avengers?  
 
Gambit might be the son of Mr. Sinister (speculation on my part of course). 
 
Rachel Summers is Cyks daughter 
 
Graydon Creed is the son of Sabretooth

Lol Cannonball and Cable aren't related. Cannonball's dad died in a mining accident.
