Well, Storm (Halle Berry) is a demi-god. Because she can control the weather, she has powers beyond most of the other “mutants”. Other mutants can simply manipulate different things: fire, ice, metal, etc. However, she can decide what the weather will do, when, and to what extent. Truly powerful.
Arguably, Xavier (Patrick Stewart) s another type of god. He has “the power to control people’s minds, make them think or do whatever [he] want[ed]”. He can pry into your past, stop time, and manipulate your mental state.
Magneto (Ian McKellen) asks the senator if he is “a god-fearing man”. Magneto says, “I’ve always thought of God as a teacher, as a bringer of light, wisdom, and understanding.” In this way, Magneto wants to bring knowledge and understanding of the mutant race to the senator by making him into a mutant. He thinks “God works too slowly”.
Also, he attempts to make Rogue into a kind of God by giving her the power to change humans into mutants using his machine. However, based on the senator dying, we can assume other humans would die as well.
There really isn’t any literal God in this movie. While the different character have god-like qualities or try to perform god-like feats, they are still (mostly) mortal beings wandering the earth.
I always love considering gender in any story.
Racism is an ever present theme in all X-Men stories.
Thanks for reading! See you next week!
