I think most of the alien/supernatural elements in a movie like X-men would take away from the message and metaphor of discrimination.

Definitely. They wouldn't be necessary either, especially when first beginning the franchise. It would make no sense . . . the basic message would be lost in a cluster**** of random throwbacks.

Speaking of mirroring discrimination...Magneto mirrors Maclcom X. Well, Malcom was killed and that is what I think will happen to Mags.

Interesting. So was Dr. King . . . and it is heavily implied that Xavier will die as well.
