    This thread already exists.... and it depends how you define things but basically I like to define mutants politics mainly in terms of their relations with humanity... Magneto is on the LEFT. (he wants massive change, empower the suffering group which are mutants). From that PoV Xavier is more of a moderate/centrist (slow tinkering, make promises, try to keep mutants "civil" and "know their place" within the human-dominated system, but not the courage to truly make it different). Apocalypse yeah is more of a right-wing fascist at least how he's normally portrayed (social darwinism, mutants are superior and that superiority is demonstrated through perpetual competition or combat). There are other ideologies though, like Mystique is a "nihilist" who "lives for today", hard to place that politically. Emma Frost like a more developed or sophisticated version of the Mystique ideology, basically "libertarianism" as in mutants should focus on self-development and succeeding within or without the currently constructed human society, but more for their own sake and not for mutants "as a whole". I would argue Rogue/Rahne have a traditional right ideology of sucking up to powers that be, not questioning or being skeptical, they accept that mutants are evil/wrong and want to convert to humans or are ok with humans treating them like garbage (obviously these characters have evolved but you know what I mean).

    Depends on the spectrum. Liberals can be center of left. As in the American social democracy.

    I’m a center left brazilian, btw

    Lets keep this simple:

    Angel: would vote primarily for no taxes on the rich
    Psylocke: would vote for lowering the age of consent
    Cyclops: would vote for more fundings for abortion clinics
    Storm: would unironically vote Trump
    Rogue: never registered to vote because she can't read

    Will always baffle me that Cyclops is not considered revolutionary like he was advertised and written as....

    American Liberals believe that their political leanings are center of left but they’d be considered Republicans like 20 years ago. But what was considered centrist got pulled further to the right over the years.

    I am going to use a simple analogy that mutants are persecuted by the religious right in the Marvel Universe and there have been many examples of this. This would tend to force them as a minority group to embrace more left leaning politicians that would advocate for equal rights. I guarantee you the Republicans of the Marvel U are big Sentinel fans who would love nothing more than to round the mutants up into permanent detention centres. Oh right they actually did this in X-Men Black Magneto, the American government was rounding up mutants in permanent detention centres.

    Warren's father would be a hard core Republican, Warren would rebel against his father and be a hard core Bernie Sanders supporter!

    Emma Frost wouldn't have political affiliations and she would donate money to politicians that support mutant rights legislation and that would be her only requirement for support be they Republican or Democrat. Oh, also Emma would support politicians who advocate on behalf of teachers and students, oh, that makes Emma pretty much a Democrat right there!

    Jean would be all in on Medicare for all and she probably is a Bernie Sanders delegate!
    We are MUTANT..Krakoa, FOREVER!!! “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité”

    To be fair, the person who reimagined “liberalism” as a centre left position was FDR. And somewhat ironically, Bill Clinton & Friends started using “progressive” to distance themselves from liberals, even though these days the left has claimed the use of progressive.
