** And then there's the whole mess with Darwin. [[spoiler: Specifically his death. The black mutant whose explicit power is "adapt to anything to survive" is killed via a dosage of energy burning him from the inside out administered to him by an old white Nazi. Cue some calling bullshit.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Oliver Platt's "man in black" character shares quite a few similarities with Phil Coulson, Clark Gregg's character from Marvel's Cinematic Universe franchise. Both are agents of a federal agency who serve as liaisons between the government and the superpowered community, both are unabashed fanboys of said communities, and both are killed at the hands of superpowered enemies. Where they differ is that Coulson's death galvanizes the Avengers as a team into action to, well- AVENGE their friend and ally. On the flip side, Xavier and co. don't even acknowledge MIB's death, let alone seem all that broken up about it.

* CompleteMonster: [[EvilutionaryBiologist Klaus Schmidt]], a.k.a. [[BigBad Sebastian Shaw]], is a {{diabolical|Mastermind}} mutant supremacist who [[FantasticRacism believes humans to be inferior to mutants]]. As a [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] MadScientist, he used his position to try to find "gifted" mutants, and upon finding a younger [[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} Erik Lensherr]], he [[YouKilledMyFather killed his mother]] after Erik failed to impress him with his powers, [[TheCorrupter solely to motivate him]], before subjecting Erik to [[ColdBloodedTorture horrible experiments]]. After [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the war]], he [[NaziGrandpa adopts the Shaw identity]] and [[FauxAffablyEvil ingratiates himself]] to high-ranking members of the government with his [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesHellfireClub Hellfire Club]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating Russia and America alike]]. Shaw assaults a {{CIA}} facility, murdering every agent within, and when one of the young mutants stands up to him, Shaw, [[{{Hypocrite}} despite his creed]] of "not harming his own kind," murders him without hesitation and with barely-concealed enjoyment. Shaw's ultimate goal was to push Russia and America into nuclear war, allowing mutant-kind to thrive in the aftermath and creating a kingdom of mutants that he himself would rule. Even when thwarted, Shaw planned to absorb all the nuclear radiation in his atomic sub and [[PersonOfMassDestruction unleash it upon Cuba]] to destroy it personally and trigger atomic war.
