Marvel Studios Could Drop The 'Men' From 'X-Men'

So the team will just be "X"?

Kinda weird, no?

This "article" is "trash" and is so "condescending" that I can "hear" the air quotes.

I assume they'll title the main series something like "X", but what about the offshoots like X-Force and the like? And which characters will be featured in the "XXX" series?

They'll just rebrand and incorporate the X some other way.

Don't want to use "Force"; sounds to violent.

Ah DailyWire.... For when you want to lose IQ points simply from reading.

According to the entertainment outlet, We Got This Covered, Alonso did an interview with the sci-fi and film YouTube program, Nuke the Fridge, where she "hinted that internal thinking is that the name 'X-Men' isn't sufficiently inclusive."

So, a far-right website reports on a article from a website known to make shiat up, that a guy with a Youtube channel with 33.5K subscribers thinks that somebody with no decision-power on the matter "hinted" that the name is not sufficiently inclusive.

"Hinted that". Not "explicitely said".

And that turned into "Marvel Studios Could Drop The 'Men' From 'X-Men' Over Concerns Title Is Not 'Inclusive'".

What a load of crap !

I think "X"-men is a replacement for both men and women.  It just indicates that they are something that is not human anymore, neither man or woman.

Dropping the "men" from X-men makes it sound pretty porny.

It sucks that DMX passed away and there was never an X-File of him as an X-Man.

I want to see X-Files DMX fighting X-Files Triple X Vin Diesel then over coming their differences to fight John Carpenter's Predator The Thing and I want it all done with practical effects.

Why can't it be a movie?

It would also be a lucrative porn parody series.

What's with the weird expressions?

Are they all singing?

Echolocating?

Yawning?

Maybe the atmospheric pressure just suddenly changed...

Why can't X-Men also mean trans people are super heroes for being themselves?

X-Men sounds like it could mean ex-Men or XX-Men.

A private company doing something that harms no one with their own intellectual property is offensive to the "conservative" Daily Wire now?

Don't think all that many liberals are big into the "You shall not replace us" style rhetoric of the GamerGate/"Go woke, get broke" crowd.

I think that this thread has covered why it's still a valid name.  We can interpret it in whatever way we want.  It was actually very intelligent naming.

I dunno, marketing was never a talent of mine...couldn't stomach thebcynical manipulations that prevade it.  Still, perhaps something like "The X-Factor"?

If anyone's actually bothered to read X Men comics in recent years then they'd know they really do represent most of the population with their varied characters, who come from all manner of different backgrounds, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, etc. I don't see a problem here at all, the commenter is correct that they could find a more inclusive name. Hell even Apocalypse has had a name change and reclaimed his identity as |:-A-:| (or whatever the symbol actually is) now that the mutants have their own nation. They've been codifying a new government and establishing themselves as a sovereign country on Krakoa, why not enact a new name while they're at it?

I still remember reading the Hulk comic where he fought Sabertooth, featuring a new Canadian hero named "Wolverine".  Wish I still had it.
