Hamas and Hezbollah do tend to be aggressive sometimes, but they can hardly be called "terrorists" as in they want to "kill all kuffar." They're just doing what they feel is right to protect their people from opression.
Secondly, some Muslims are unsure who to side with, just as Wolverine in the first movie didn't care about peace and shared some of Magneto's ideas. With some guidance from Prof. X, he was directed back to the right path.
Then X Men never pretended that there is nothing wrong with many mutants, while most muslims ( at least on this forum) claim that islamic terrorism was made up by western media.
That's because they saw it firsthand and not through the media.
Third thing, most immportant thing. X Men fought against bad mutants, often sacrificed their life. While so called moderate muslims dont do anything to stop their extremist brothers and sisters.
That's because the "humans" in our world are already doing that part and killing a countless number of "good mutants" along the way. Plus, when did the X-Men ever take humans as allies in the war against Magneto?
