* In the past, the situation of mutants in the ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics was compared to ethnic minorities. More recent books have shown a tendency to make discussions of being a mutant sound like they're about homosexuality, particularly after racial minority groups complained of the co-option of their struggle for characters who, as a whole, are mainly white.

In the past, the situation of mutants in the ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics was compared to ethnic minorities. minorities, and was originally meant as a metaphor of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. More recent books have shown a tendency to make discussions of being a mutant sound like they're about homosexuality, particularly after racial minority groups complained of the co-option of their struggle for characters who, as a whole, are mainly white.white.
** Some stories have taken things even further. The systematic incarceration and extermination of mutants in "Days of Future Past" draws strong comparisons to UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, while ComicBook/{{Magneto}} often sites the persecution of the Jews by the Nazis as part of his motivation. The first ''Film/XMen1'' film makes this connection even more explicit by opening with a scene of young Erik arriving at Auschwitz, where his powers first awaken.

*Possibly the biggest one of comics and the oldest example, Magneto's fear that Humans will round up mutants, taking them out of civilian life and putting them into camps, until a solution of what to do with them can be decided. Magento is a Holocaust survivor, you do the math.

* Apparently whenever ComicBook/SheHulk has a transformation from her puny human state into the green goddess, it is the equivalent of sexual orgasm to her, as was showcased in not only the {{Ultimate|Marvel}} incarnation, but on the classic 1990s cartoon as well, which was supposedly for the "younger" crowd.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Donald Duck Adventures'' story "That Ol' Soft Soap" has Donald aggressively expanding a soap business by ever more elaborate marketing and packaging schemes while diminishing the actual content. The packaging is aimed at soap collectors, two of which are shown fighting over whose limited-edition bar is the rarest. This inevitably ends in a [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996 crash]].

* In an arc of ''ComicBook/IronMan'', the armor is [[LightningCanDoAnything struck by lightning]]; this, in combination with [[MillenniumBug Y2K]], [[InstantAIJustAddWater made it sentient]]. Tony wants to transfer its mind to something less dangerous, or kill it, but then the armor tells him that it [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001w72b loves him]]. "How would you define the feelings I have for you? Because, if what I learned from your mind is true -- it feels exactly the same as what you feel -- for [[LoveInterest Ms. Fujikawa]]." Tony then decides to [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00023kfq see if he can be a better Iron Man]] while in the sentient armor, but can't control it... The armor claims to be [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001p754 protecting Tony]], and then it stops letting [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001s2xp his friends over]]. He puts on an older Iron Man suit to try and [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001fyfp escape]], [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001gcpy which]] [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001h4gt enrages]] the [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001kwyq armor]], and it takes him to an island and [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001y8ys tortures him]], then [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001z6g0 apologizes]].... Evidently, [[CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] taught Tony how to escape from being tied to a tree, and the thought of him [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00020c9a gives Tony strength]]. Still, Tony has a heart attack during the fight, and the armor, [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00022t51 horrified]], does a HeroicSacrifice[=/=]RedemptionEqualsDeath. Among many comic!Iron Man fans, the sentient armor is generally called "Tony's abusive boyfriend".

* In ''[[Franchise/{{XMen}} Phoenix: Endsong]]'' the titular bird-[[EldritchAbomination being]] is weakened, and needs energy to restore itself. So it crawls onto Scott's sleeping body, narrating how it "need[s] so much". This led to fans nicknaming it a "cosmic stalker." Other scenes are even better.

** In the finale, Cyclops shoots his EyeBeams directly at the Phoenix, who's flinging her limbs outward and screaming ecstatically; "Yes! More!" The stream of Cyclops's power, incidentally, lands right on the Phoenix's cleavage[[note]]What a pig[[/note]].
