Ever since Disney bought 21st Century Fox in 2019, the existence of the mutants in the MCU has been frequently questioned by the fans.

Fox’s last settlement of the X-Men saga, ‘Dark Phoenix’, didn’t turn out to be such a big hit, and left fans questioning the relevance of the original X-Men Trilogy’s timeline.
