In reference to the song and video "You and Me".
I think you're taking this particular song too personally. Song just seems to be a "She Drives me Crazy" song, one really cool sounding lyric with a song written around it. And the video seems to be about a really dumb boyfriend who can't do a proper search in a nearly empty bus station and can't see his girlfriend when she's only a few feet in front of him.

Beak's girlfriend, Angel Salvadore is hispanic. I hate how they changed her, when she first showed up she was short, wide hips and heftier, now they made her a generic slim model type.

Dude, MJ playing around with her husband.

Not all the kids were upset about being mutants, some liked it.
Plus once you're proven to be part of the next evolutionary step why go back?

Blaming bobby? More like if someone loses his ability to walk or see, Scott is just feeling sorry for him.

I never understood the whole Marvel mutant bad thing, if you have a power, it's only okay if you got it thru an accident or experiment but it's bad if you were born with it? I would love it if my kid was born super strong or really fast, etc. Okay, it would upset me that my kid was Beak. Guess then I would feel like a parent with a birth defected kid, "No, that lady is not a robot, not a robot. No, not a robo...okay, yes just like R2, she's a robot."

If you have a kid who's a great athlete or a really intelligent student you would be proud. Sure some of the other parents and kids might be jealous but enough to run you out of town? Hell no, they would be cheering him on if he was on your town's sports team or school quiz squad. And if your kid can lift a car or run fast enough to walk on water, would you risk messing with them?

What I really hate about M-day is Quesada supposely did it cause he thought there were a ridiculous amount of mutants running around and he wanted to tone it down. Seems like an easy out now. Like I said I don't understand mutant hatred. So many real world uses. Weather control, advance tech, indestructible soldiers, fast delivery system, instantaneous travel, swift rescue teams, healers, security detail, etc.

I think this'll interest you, Tim. Maybe instead of paying any attention to Marvel's stupid events, maybe this is worth it:

Marvel announces their 'What If' books including What if Wanda said "No more powers." instead of "No More Mutants?"

This is not true. As a child, Christina Aguilera and her mother were tormented by other jealous mothers in the town because Xtina was winning all of the talent competitions, outshining their own little brats.
