Storm is exclusively called Storm
Rogue is exclusively called Rogue
Professor X is called The Professor, unless addressed by Erik.
Magneto is called Magneto, unless addressed by Charles or Raven
Cyclops is called Cyclops, unless addressed by Jean Grey.

And as Zarex points out, goes out of his way to trump that with Magneto's far better and more serious conversation with Pyro.

"What's your name?"
"What's your real name, John?"
Very nice.

I'd say Marvel's track record is pretty similar. Its "Captain" or "Captain Rogers" most often, "Stark" or "Mr. Stark" pretty exclusively. Agent Romanoff, never Black Widow. Agent Barton, unless addressed by Black Widow. And of course, THOR! :P

And villains are worse. Vanko, Stane, Blonsky, Schmidt. I wouldnt say either the Singer or Whedon camp is more likely of using the proper codenames.

Black Panther 8.5 | Avengers: Infinity War 10.0 | Deadpool 2 X.X | Ant-Man and the Wasp X.X | X-Men: Dark Phoenix X.X | Venom X.X | Aquaman X.X

Tradition is just dead people's baggage.
