    what a stupid theme for a show
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    It's not clear (after one ep.) where things are in the timeline, and the extent to which the show is part of the goobered up "continuity" of the movies. The "Sentinels" at this point seem to be small spidery things, and it's not at all clear that they can actually "detect" mutants and distinguish them from regular people. So the mutant-detecting Trask Sentinels that would have come online during the Nixon Administration but for Wolverine's efforts in DoFP never came to pass.

    When did that idea start? Watchmen? The Dark Knight graphic novels? Earlier? I remember back in the '60s or so there was a small hint of that. JJJ mainly hated Spidey, but he wasn't big on *any* of the super-beings.

    I think the whole registration thing started with The Civil War series with Marvel.
