X Men is my favourite comics. The concept of black, white and grey is explored in depth (Read: Magneto). I doubt there's any storyline that has so many important female characters or a beautiful love story (Read: Rogue and Gambit) or for that matter addressed so many social issues (Racism, Religion, Gay Marriages etc.). It has laid a lot of emphasis on the concept of equality but to me equality is not a concept; it's not something we should be striving for but it's a necessity. The imbalance that is in every culture is sucking something out of the soul of every person who's confronted with it. We need equality and it can happen only if we start treating others as our equals.
