2016 Massacres & Division in America Uncannily Parallel to X-Men

When we think of @X-menmovies, extraordinary mutants from the 1980s come to mind. When we think of powerful voices, we may think of the weather goddess, Storm, who controls lighting, thunder, and can hurl a tornado upon command. Wolverine’s short stature, hot temper, and impregnable adamantium blades may give us the courage to stand up against a bully; while Professor Xavier’s all-seeing and allow knowing telepathy may help us examine critical situations more closely. For the millennial, a film with astonishing CGI and a team of uniformed heroes might just be a thumbs-up for yet another wonderful creation into the world of Hollywood.

For anyone reading the 1980s comic—thought bubbles printed on Mando paper convey eerie, and yet, vast similarities to the horrific June 12, 2016 attack on the gay population in Orlando, Florida, where a 29-year-old American security guard named Omar Mateen murdered 49 people and wounded 53 others. But the Pulse Nightclub massacre wasn’t the only unnerving incident this year. Law enforcement officers continue to disperse fear, transforming it into excessive force and psychological intimidation. Officers continue to poach and murder African-American men around the country, and as a consequence of that behavior, law enforcement officers have become “the hunted,” lulling Dallas police officers into a dangerous portal of unsuspected violence.

  1. Let me know what you think!

  2. What is often overlooked is that police, during the height of lynching, were complicit in most lynchings. In the book While historical lynchings and modern-day murders at the hands of police have some differences, many of the legal, physical, and emotional parallels are frightening. What follows below the fold are seven troubling similarities between the two.

  3. In years after, Wanda remained in her role as a longtime Avengers mainstay, salvaging her relationship with the Vision as best she could – although sparks also appeared with Captain America towards the end of her Avengers tenure – the moment she brought the team to its lowest moment ever recorded. The mutant Beast later found Wanda at the same village and sought her help to deal with the aftermath of M-Day. She had no memory of him either, and claimed that she did not believe in magic.
