    Default Are there any Mutants respected by the world at large?

    So since they were created The Xmen and other mutants have been feared and hated by the world at large. But are there any mutants that the public respects or loves? I am talking about people who are known to be mutants not people who are loved but not known to be mutants.

    I dont mean mutants respected by other heroes. I am talking mutants respected by the government or public.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Those who join the Avengers are more accepted.

    Sunfire is a national hero in Japan. Justice is respected in the United States because he offers a conservative and passive image.

    Sunfire is national hero while most of mutants that join Avengers are regarded as hero by people.

    It's suggested Laura (X-23) and Gabby (Honey Badger/Scout) are.

    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    Banshee saved Japan, I guess he has to be respected there too.

    More generally, I'd think Storm is respected quite widely.

    I'll save everyone the time. No. The ones who joined the Avengers I treated more fairly but all it really takes is one bad press day for public opinion to swing right the other way

    Just looking at the OPs previous thread about respected characters in general, which was pretty much just Captain America, I would say that the world at large is going to have vastly different opinions on super power heroes as a whole and certainly individually. I imagine the in story populace probably feels the same as readers do, and mutants such as Wolverine, Storm and Cyclops certainly are met with respect in general. But, like that other thread, when you put Captain America up as the poster child, no one, certainly not an X-Men, comes close and makes it hard to guess.

    I’d say Wolverine is respected and feared. Same with Magneto. Probably Professor X too.
    You brought back Wolverine

    I know I do these respect threads kind of a lot but I like to think about what Normal people and heroes think not just focus on the random beat them up things of the hero universe.

    Would Magneto be respected by the normal person? I i get other mutants would respect him though. Nut I mean he has more then once tried to overthrow humans.

    Yes I think he would be one of the most respected Mutants alive. Respect isn’t necessarily the same thing as being liked. People would respect his power/ability and fear what he can and has done with that power.

    I think more people fear Magneto than respect him but in the end the difference is semantic.

    wasn't Xavier well respected by the public at one point? or was that all before it was revealed to the public that he was a mutant?

    if not him then namor and shiro.

    There was an issue in Kieron Gillen's run on uncanny where magneto worked with a PR specialist to try and clean up his image i think?

    Emma Frost is the CEO of a major pharmaceutical company.

    She is respected. The public faces of Krakoa, a Xavier and Magneto are. Storm is worshipped as a goddess in Wakanda. Jean was able to get an audience with the U.N. and call on the Avengers to help with Cassandra Nova.

    He's respected by other super beings, not so much the average person whom primarily see him as a terrorist that has killed a ton of humans, destroyed parts of multiple cities and has declared war numerous times
