To be honest the X-men always fit rather poorly to the greater Marvel universe, it's kind of hard to have mutant oppression when you got 10000 superpowered heroes that don't get oppressed, I mean worst someone like Spiderman got is a bad press in a way that's obvious the writer has something against Spiderman personally and the Avengers are generally seen as heroes in-universe IIRC.
X-men work best in a universe where mutants are essentially the only superpowered beings in existance.
Marvel comics have had mutants since 1955, if not earlier (Yellow Claw #2)
The idea of humanity oppressing mutants was speculated in 1959 (Tales of Suspense #6)
