* VocalMinority: [[invoked]] An In-Unverse version. Most mutants that are seen are usually relatively powerful, but its been said that most mutants are either relatively weak, or even completely harmless, but are still treated to the same stuff the actual dangerous ones are, and is usually the reason the Mutants are a minority metephor works. But of course, no one wants to read a comic about a group of people who only have an extra pair of hands or the ability to glow.

The team are members of a human subspecies, ''Homo superior''[[note]]otherwise known as ''Homo sapiens superior''[[/note]], colloquially referred to as "mutants". Mutants are humans who possess the "X-gene", giving them special superpowers and unique capabilities. Said to be humanity's next evolutionary phase, their presence has generated massive dissension among humans thinking mutants will soon render them extinct. Though most strive for a civil coexistence, mutants are generally met with fear, hatred, violence, envy and discrimination. Under increasing anti-mutant sentiment, mutant telepath Charles Xavier creates a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, as well as to prove mutants can be heroes. Initially, Xavier recruited Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey, calling them "X-Men" as they had "X-tra" power with the X-gene. Starting off with just five members, many others joined the team as the years went on. Just as many left, and some even returned.

* EndOfAnAge: The Dream's End storyline, which ran through several titles and massively shook up the status quo, including the deaths of several supporting characters. ''Decimation'' also served as this; mutants were a thriving minority numbering in the millions, and even making great strides at integrating into human society. Then ''House of M'' happened, and in its aftermath all but 200 mutants were stripped of their powers.

* WholePlotReference: Uncanny X-Men #143 is based on ''Film/{{Alien}}''. And it is starred by Kitty Pryde, a character that Byrne designed after Creator/SigourneyWeaver to boot. The reference was so blatant (the alien is even killed the same way), that they thought they were going to be sued.

The team are members of a human subspecies, ''Homo superior''[[note]]otherwise known as ''Homo sapiens superior''[[/note]], colloquially referred to as "mutants". Mutants are humans who possess the "X-gene", a gene that gives them special superpowers and unique capabilities. Said to be humanity's next evolutionary phase, their presence has generated massive dissension among humans out of the belief that mutants will soon render them extinct. While most mutants strive for a civil coexistence, they're generally met with fear, hatred, violence, envy and discrimination. Under increasing anti-mutant sentiment, mutant telepath Charles Xavier creates a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, as well as to prove mutants can be heroes.

Though the X-Men started off with just five members, as the years went on, many others joined the team. Just as many left, and some even returned.

Early issues introduced the team's archenemy, Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, who would battle the X-Men for years. Although the original team was composed entirely of [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant WASPs]], as was typical of the time, the All-New, All-Different team of 1975 was incredibly diverse (and for the most part averting CaptainEthnic), and subsequent team makeups have kept this aspect. Since it's debut, the comic has been a major allegory of civil rights, specifically the American UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement and, more recently, the LGBT Rights Movement.

* MeatSackRobot: The storyline "Operation: Zero Tolerance" introduced the Prime Sentinels: ordinary humans who were [[UnwillingRoboticization roboticized]] and then released back into their normal lives as {{Manchurian Agent}}s unaware of the cybernetics under their flesh. Their bodies are constantly scanning for the X-Gene and when they come in contact with a mutant, their programming involuntarily activates, where they will attempt to eliminate them with extreme prejudice. They also carry the ability to roboticize ordinary people and thus create ''more'' Prime Sentinels.
