In the world of X-men mutants (people born with genetic mutations that grants some of the with amazing powers) are treated like many minorites have been treated in the past and I was wondering if you think they would get the same reaction if they were real.

Do you think that if mutants actually existed that they would be feared and hated like they are in X-men?

Bump.

Yes people I know I only submit comicbook questions.

Probably, at least to some extent. Personally I'd be very excited to be witnessing the next step in human evolution, but a bit upset not to be part of it.

Also, I'd be worried about mutants who didn't properly control their power or actively used it irresponsibly.

I think people would fear them. Humanity fears what it doesn't understand. The mutants would face the same treatment as black slaves, chinese railroad workers, Irish immigrants, and so on.

seems to me you are obsessed with comics

Seems to me you're an idiot.

I think that they would, but not so much because people would fear the mutants themselves, but more along the lines of the fear of the powers and misuse of powers.

Good question, Omni.

Thanks Thistle.

Probably not, they might creep some people out though.

Not to the extent that they portray in the comics and movies, but there will always be groups of ignorant people waiting to hate something.

No question about it. They would be feared and persecuted. Sad but true.

I'd want to be their friend and then have their babies to make more mutant children to populate the earth and eventually take over.

Yeah, I think so. Humans fear the unknown. How would you know whether or not someone was a mutant walking down the street and what they could do to you? I personally would find it a little scary. Unless I was the mutant. That would be fun.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 7/29/04 - 11:28:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes defenitely, people are ignorant and stupid as creatures. unfortunately
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 8/21/04 - 11:15:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Probably, but I'd want to be friends with one.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 8/21/04 - 11:40:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
I have a feeling I'd be one of the mutants . . . . . . .
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 8/21/04 - 11:44:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd want to be a mutant myself. If someone made fun of me or something I'd just use my powers and be like, "oh yeah? Well can you do this?"
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 8/21/04 - 12:32:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mutants exist now. They're just not as 'cool'
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 8/23/04 - 8:27:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think they'd be science projects

Assuming we're talking X-men style mutants, rather than the more prosaic day-to-day kind that already exist, I think the big problem would be that you'd have people with excessive powers. It'd be the equivalent of random people walking about with an AK-47. That'd scare most people.

I think the fact that they're mutated would be pretty much an non-issue compared to the ability to kill you with a thought.

Yes. People are afraid of anything and anyone different. X-Men is, after all, just a metaphor for the real world's racism and homophobia.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 11/6/04 - 2:37:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
i agree with werechick
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 12/1/04 - 1:54:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
ide be scared
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 12/31/04 - 6:59:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd be scared too, except if I was one, in which case I would have babies with Envethis and take over the planet.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 12/31/04 - 7:06:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ha! You added this question as if you think the world is filled with people that fear or even hate people that are different from them.


17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 1/1/05 - 10:19:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
i wouldn't hate them, but i can't speak for my generation. i thnk they would be treated like blacks back in the day or gays today. srry to say
