Marvel depicts Jesus as a mutant in Immortal X-Men

Bounding Into Comics told of the latest head-shakingly ridiculous path taken in the X-Men, as Jesus Christ is portrayed as a mutant, as though it weren't already implausible enough Moira MacTaggart were subjected to the same:
In a move that surely has no possibility of backfiring, Marvel has confirmed in the premiere issue of Immortal X-Men that, at least within their 616-continuity, the miracles performed by the Christian savior Jesus Christ were not the result of his Holy existence, but rather a latent X-gene.
It's also written by Kieron Gillen, the same writer who nearly a decade ago retconned Tony Stark's background so Iron Man was no longer the son of Howard & Maria Stark. So now, he's mocking religious history, as though that's going to solve anything. This does nothing to improve upon Gillen's past record of shameless retcons, as now he's venturing into what could be considered even more religious/political territory that's not bound to appeal to anybody. What it does make clear is that Gillen's another bad writer at Marvel who needs to be let go, along with Dan Slott and Jason Aaron, to name but some more bad writers in their stables. Unfortunately, nepotism to date's ensured that no matter how wretched their writing is, the editorial won't take them off the payroll.

Actually, the story did not confirm that Jesus was a mutant. One character in the story said that he was, but it was never actually established as (fictionally) true.

You're missing the point, Anonymous, but that's not surprising. It's Marvel's way of trolling Christians around Easter. They wouldn't do this to Mohammed or any other religious figure.

Maybe it is Marvel's way of saying that all persecuted mutants are the children of God. But, to be honest, most Christians would not fuss or feel trolled by a one-line comment in a comic book if the deep state media had not blown it out of proportion.

Well, they did it around Easter, so you'll forgive me if I feel it was a troll job on Marvel's part. Again, they wouldn't do it to any other religion.

...have you forgotten all the other times DC and Marvel did other religions dirty?

Oh, look, it's Drag, who gives himself away because he starts every sentence with ellipses and asks stupid questions. Thought you were done with this site, Drag? You said as much several years ago.

Marcel and DC have been called to task over stereotyped Muslim/Arab villains they have used over the years.

"Marcel and DC have been called to task over stereotyped Muslim/Arab villains they have used over the years."

That has nothing to do with the post, Drag. Or is it Anonymous? I can't keep track of all these trolls.
