    I think it is to late to change the name to be honest, regardless if it is good or bad.
    Ranking of favorite characters
    Phoenix/Jean, Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm

    These characters are not real and nobody loves each other for real. They will dump and love people even if it makes no sense just to for the sake of it.
    My ships: Jean/Scott, Wanda/Vision, Scott/Logan, Rogue/Gambit, Storm/Black Panther.

    Are we going too far with political correctness? What's next? Changing Men in Black to People in Black? If Hollywood decides to make a Watchmen movie reboot, should we call them Watchpeople and Minuteforce?

    I will always refer to Xavier's team as the X-men. They can't force us to stop calling them that.

    I don't think its outdated. the usage of "men" is meant to include both/all genders. it's the same as if someone would refer to women and men as "they." sometimes there is a thing called being too PC and this is one of them. leave the name and team as they were created: the xmen.

    of course we are. these little pc problems are honestly not that big of a deal and are most likely brought up by people who don't read comics, but are just looking to rile up the masses

    I'm sure someone else has already posted this but just call them "X-People" instead, assuming a change is even necessary.

    But why are people getting riled up? As far as I know, there isn’t like a petition or organized rally to get the name changed. It’s literally just someone’s opinion on the name. There is no way it’ll actually be changed, but that shouldn’t mean a discussion on why that name may affect some people a certain way can’t happen. It’s a contradiction of rhetoric that claims that being too PC results in censorship when the only thing really getting censored is that same opinion that gets people mad.

    In the MC2 Universe, Jubilee did rename the team the X-People. Most of the comments I've seen on that have said the name change felt dumb.

    I already predicted a few weeks ago in some thread here that we would see an end to the name “X-Men” with Hickman coming in. (Not because of Hickman mind you, I just think that the timing makes sense now).

    Now consider this tagline for uncanny X-men 22...
    “It all ends here. This is forever!”

    Could this tagline be referring to the name “X-men”?

    When people aren’t using the internet to stir shit, they use it to test their sense of humor on a low-risk audience.

    What’s the internet even for if not getting pointlessly angry about something trivial that’s not even happening?
