The film presents as something shallow and not really worthy of deep critical attention. Then it feeds the viewers deep issues in rather overt ways.
‘Deadpool 2’ has more action, laughs, and story than the first. It also tosses in enough heart to sweeten things up, without getting too sickening.
‘Legion’ asks: What if a mutant named David Haller (Dan Stevens) hears voices in his head and at least some of them are not the thoughts of humans?
‘The Gifted’ eschews typical network conventions and is better for it. It’s a show crafted with care, not just a lazy means of cashing in on a license.
The edge of extinction storyline begun in ‘House of M’ through the end of ‘Avengers vs. X-Men’ resulted in a slog of increasing irrelevance for Marvel’s merry band of mutants.
Captain America says, ‘Heritage Initiative. They call themselves a ‘think tank,’ but—’ X-Men leader Kitty Pryde interrupts: ‘they’re a bunch of anti-mutant racists.’

Marvel Comics is trying to memory-hole its brands during the golden age of superhero films. But it actually makes sense.
It’s a total copout to rewrite comic history to make Iceman retroactively gay despite his many female love interests.
Yes, the new X-Men is heavy on characters, but the series looks to be moving in the right direction.
