Isn’t it a little defeating to have these guys in Genosha? Is that what mutantkind wanted, just to be separated from the rest of humanity?
Genosha, too, was that weird, like, “Planet of the Apes” riff with the slave race or whatever, and it’s such an abstract anyway—. Where WAS Genosha? Point to me on a map where it was. I’ll show you a map of the world, I challenge anyone to find—.
But you know what the idea was. The idea was to separate them. This was their own world, their own island.
Okay, that didn’t work. Strict isolation doesn’t work. You need them close to real people. I’m sorry, close to humans. I didn’t mean to offend any mutants, there.
At the end of the day, they are humans?
Yeah, right, exactly. And you need them close enough—. You can’t have them just off in a pocket. It’s not a metaphor that works in the abstract. They need proximity to the rest of the world.
