Possibly stupid n00bish Marvel question:
So the events of Civil War happened not long after the House of M incident, right? In House of M, Emma’s scan of the planet after the events lead her to estimate that there are a tiny number of mutants left on the planet.
Yet a few months later we suddenly have demands for superhero registration and scenes indicating that mutant numbers are still a “problem” all over the place. There are enough mutants for the Raft to be packed full of supervillains, D-list heroes starring in a reality TV show, and a general sense that it’s business as usual for most folks (except the X-Men, who spend all their time being angsty and miserable-oh, no wait, that’s business as usual too.)
My question is, how is this discrepancy explained in-universe? I’ve Googled a bit but can’t really find anything beyond vague suggestions that Emma’s assessment was “wrong” or “symbolic”.
Help a brother out?
