Another "x" in statistix
I always hated this argument. This argument ignores the fact that FF were hated at first, and they needed a huge PR machine to make them accepted, and even then, they were in court numerous times. It also ignores the times, where Avengers were hated, especially when they had mutant members on their squad (when Wanda and Vision were engaged, they had their home burned). It also ignores the fact that Hulk was hunted for 200+ issues of his series, and still kinda is. It ignores the fact that Spider-Man is a menace, and sometimes he is called mutant. However, JJJ is ironically pro-mutant, which is probably why this angle wasn't explored in 616 universe. You have Ghost Rider, who makes people shit themselves. You have Punisher, who is cheered, but also hated for being a psycho. You have Venom, you have Namor, who saved the Earth as many times as he condemned it.
I mean, in the famous JLA / Avengers crossover it was explicitly spelled out. That Marvel universe HATES its heroes, while DC universe LOVES its heroes, and builds monuments for them*. It's not only mutants who are hated, but X-Men being hated is something of a core character trait, pushed to the extreme, because you have also ordinary citizens, who are mutants, and who are neither villains, nor heroes (I even covered it in one of my educational threads, tsk tsk, it's like you are not reading my works)
*In the very first time where Jericho joins Teen Titans, Robin is like "welp, we have aliums, cyborgs, psychics, a mutant isn't really that different / weird". Also, Killer Croc is a mutant, but never once he was called a "mutie", neither by citizens, nor anyone else for that matter. And he was never persecuted for being different, but he was persecuted for being a criminal.
