I like that the comments are 100% against her and calling for her to go
work someplace else. She may be stupid but at least she’s unattractive.

Nobody's going to change the name of the X-Men. That's a really stupid
hill for her to die on.

A) as long as she dies
Two) why the hell didn’t she complain about Iron Man?

Odds are the new Iron Man will be Tony Stark and Pepper Pots daughter.

The problem with that is the movies would need to jump 15 to 20 years into
the future. Phil Spiderman would be pushing 40. Aunt May would be 80.

In the comics, Riti Williams is Ironheart, a 15-year-old black girl. She
has a Tony Stark artificial intelligence in her suit. But it’s probably way
too close to the iron armor Phil Spiderman character.

The "men" in "X-Men" is not about one sex, just like "To Serve Man" wasn't
about enslaving all the females.

It's all double-speak B.S. They refer to groups of men and woman now as "guys" so WTF is wrong with "X-Men?"

The “men” in X-Men means humans, not males exclusively.

Man
NOUN
men (plural noun)
a human being of either sex; a person.
"God cares for all races and all men"
synonyms: human being, human, person, mortal, individual, personage, soul

*meh* Ant-Man’s daughter was a kindergartener when Thanos did the “snap”
and five years later, she was a high schooler…

So call them 'The X-Humans' because they really aren't human anymore
anyways....

On the release date of Infinity War Abby Rider Fortson was just three
weeks shy of 11. Her character was a year older than she was, making
her 16 during Endgame. Cassie Lang was celebrating her 8th birthday
during Ant-Man. Morgan Stark is 11 years younger than Cassie Lang.

We should really think of a name for male humans.

So they should be named "Persons of X" — or "POX" for short.

Or "The X-Its" — which is where the franchise seems to be heading.

Ant-Man didn't happen during Infinity War. Ant-Man II happened during
Infinity War. So no, it wasn't just 5 years later.

People need to calm down about the X-Men name change. No one even remembers

That’s Ant-Man's daughter from the "Ant-Man and The Wasp" flick;

https://media.melty.fr/article-3762041-facebook-f8/media.jpg

And in the timeline at the end of that movie, Thanos does the snap
thing, leaving Ant-Man trapped in the Microverse* and when he
returns 5 years later, his kid is magically a high schooler.

*Yes, I know they call it something else but it was supposed
to be the Microverse but the toy company wouldn’t let Marvel
use the term nor make a Micronauts flick because they're dumb
and now the Micronauts flick will be a lame kiddy movie.

It's not that magical. Sure Ryder was a year younger than her character
meaning that Cassie was a bit small for her age. But she wasn't
kindergarten-aged and 11 year olds do become high schoolers after five
years.
