"This is not what you think it is. This is not a rehashing of the Age of Apocalypse. This is something else altogether. It’s a utopia. It’s the quiet American Dream come true for the X-Men and thus a world and lifestyle that has never been explored for mutants in the past. But there’s a lurking darkness beneath. We’re harkening back to classic dystopian fiction like Orwell, Bradbury, and Huxley, but this time it’s less oppressive and tackling contemporary issues. We’re slowing things down a bit, keeping it eerie, before stoking the flames again in order to explore who these characters become when they are allowed to be individuals, when they are allowed to be exactly who they want to be without fear of repercussion or persecution." -- Lonnie Nadler

"This book is about a different kind of oppression. It’s about exploring what you become when you’re faced to ask hard questions about what you’d do to keep the peace. It’s about tackling the age old X-Men theme of what it means to be an outsider with a modern subversive twist. Age of X-Man is about exploring what mutants become after they win a battle they’ve been fighting for their entire lives." -- Zac Thompson

Assuming you have a mono culture and a decently advanced level of technology near-Utopia is not that hard to achieve.

Nate has both of those and the additional benefit of universal education and universal/near universal stable two parent households.

Why the need for any extra coercion? The Pheonix Five damn near created Utopias just be solving the scare resource issue and making physic therapy available to all.

Nate's nuts. He's enforcing his mommy issues onto this entire reality. People believe that this is a better way because he made it a rule that they do.

House of M... unless he means 'utopia for all', which is still clearly not the case here, so...

[Inigo Montoya]You keep using the word 'Utopia'. I don't think it means what you think it means.[/Inigo Montoya]

A Utopia for the X-Men is not a place where they cannot experience love. Hell, love is one of the primary motivational factors for the X-Men. A Utopia is not simply having people not hunting you or fearing you (I mean, it's nice, but if the cost is one of the most critical of human emotions, it seems a poor bargain).
