X-Men as an allegory for racism is so dumb. Why would you not be scared or wary of creatures who could destroy cities or even the world? If such creatures existed in the real world, you’d want them to be under some control.Comics (specifically DC and Marvel) have been have had those types of storylines since they were first introduced. The X-Men were an allegory for racism when they were introduced in the 1960s, for example.. So the industry didn't tank because of activists. They aren't really doing anything to help but they aren't the reason it's where it is now.
