Introduction

The X-Men are undoubtedly one of the most famous superhero groups in contemporary fiction, alongside the likes of the Avengers and the Justice League. But whereas those former two groups mostly work to bring an end to crime, the X-Men also work to bring an end to the societal injustices and prejudices that Mutants have to face on a daily basis. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the X-Men stand as metaphors for the discriminated and marginalized groups of modern times, with many of their stories having messages that promote of Civil Rights activism, LGBT acceptance, and the abolition of any ideologies that promote discrimination against others.

X-Men Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture

Everyone has an X-Men character that speaks to them; that perfectly represents them by way of their abilities, personality, or a combination of the two. The X-Men's own Wolverine, for instance, is one of the most popular superheroes in fiction due to his unique healing factor and Adamantium claws as well as his gritty demeanor and lone wolf disposition. Other X-Men characters, like the Juggernaut, have ascended to the heights of internet Memedom due to a single, defining moment. Whether by die hard X-Men fans, casual movie goers, or Meme lovers, the X-Men are adored by millions due to the distinct power sets and personalities of each Mutant.

The struggles of the X-Men, the Brotherhood of Mutants, and the Morlocks, as mentioned earlier, tend to mirror the struggles faced by members of the LGBT community and other marginalized groups all around the world; indeed, the initial discomfort and discrimination that many X-Men experience often mirrors the personal experiences of people who've been outed as being homosexual and the difficulties they might face in asking their family members to accept them. Furthermore Bolivar Trask, the Mutant hating creator of the infamous Sentinels, has often been compared to likes of Adolf Hitler or William Joseph Simmons. Because of these things, the X-Men have been viewed as champions of various Civil Rights causes, so consider naming your dog after one of these heroes to show solidarity with their cause.
