It was year 2000. Those who have been following superhero revolution with full interest, hope and support ; congratulations you have won the revolution! Congrats!
As Charles Dickens said “It was the best of times, it was worst of times”.
On 14 July 1789 Bastillle was stormed. On 14 July 2000, USA gave world the best gift to celebrate the incident that started French Revolution – Storm- I men X-Men
X-Men almost had everything a superhero fan could want
Only thing missing was good humour
While comic books of X-Men of 1960s were allegory of civil right movement which were happening in real life, X-Men movies of 2000s were allegory of gay rights movement that have started gaining momentum in 1990s. Which is why in one scene you can see a parent of mutant asking Professor X to ‘cure’ his child. Sounds similar ?
