    Not sure how I feel about this.

    First I think "Men" is referring to "Man" as in humans, and not "Man" as in gender. So I dont think this was made in any sexual intent or should have any current name change in today's context, YET.

    This also begs the greater question if we should continue to describe human as "man" anymore in the first place (ie "mankind")

    Anyone that is/will be associated with pushing this decision, if it happens, deserves to burn at the stake. Demons, the lot of them.

    Comic books continuously change and rewrite every aspect of their characters and story. Seems like a silly thing to get upset about if it does actually happen, but you can’t underestimate how thin-skinned some people around here are.

    I think something like X-People might be more inclusive.

    I like this one. It doesn't contain any micro aggressions against anyone.
