Am I the only one that's noticed "Sky High"s plagurism of X-Men?

Sky High is plagurising the X-Men for the following reasons

1: Both are about a school for superheroes

2: They have a bad guy who can control metal

3: One of the main characters is a badass that nobody likes

4: One of the main characters is caught in a love triangle

5: One of the main characters has a hard time controlling their powers

6: The bad guy used to be a superhero

7: The girlfriend get's the wrong image about their crush in one scene

8: One of the characters is highly misunderstood

AM I the only one noticing this? If Stan Lee had seen this copyright infringement city, he would have sued disney's @$$ in a second!!!

    The Movie Sky High is a children's comedy about a high school that is designed to teach superheros how to be superheros and fight super villians. To be accepted into the school is an honor, (unless you're deemed to be a sidekick). Superheros are looked at as saviors of the people.

    X-Men is an action/sci-fi about a evolutinary change in humans and the cultural conflits with the acceptance of the mutants. Professor Xavier's Mansion/School is a safe haven for those who have been turned away by society. The X-Men are an elite force of these mutants who fight for the social equality of mutants.

    1: Both are about a school for superheroes

    X-Men are not superheros. The X-Men's school is for mutants that have nowhere else to go. The X-Men who fight are fighting for mutant equality.

    2: They have a bad guy who can control metal

    Magneto can control any magnetic field around metal. Royal Pain is a "technopath" who can control machines with her mind.

    3: One of the main characters is a badass that nobody likes

    4: One of the main characters is caught in a love triangle

    5: One of the main characters has a hard time controlling their powers

    7: The girlfriend get's the wrong image about their crush in one scene

    8: One of the characters is highly misunderstood

    Any movie involving a high school atmoshpere is going to deal with the typical issues involved with a high school; love triangles, inexperienced skills, awkwardness fitting in, social groups, bullying, miscommunication... it's what people want to see when dealing with an adolecent storyline.

    6: The bad guy used to be a superhero

    (assuming you're talking about Magneto and Warren Peace)

    Magneto used to work with Prof. Xavier, but instead of using diplomatic methods of earning mutant equality, Magneto rathered the gerilla tactics and taking more of an offencive stance to those who opposed. Xavier felt that more peaceful solutions were the answer, so they went their different ways.

    Warren Peace was never a bad guy. He was born to a mother of a superhero and Barron Battle, a supervillian. The movie gave the impression that he was a villian, but he was simply misunderstood.

    I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with you. I think these two movies are too different to be considered rip-offs of each other. If you would like to make an argument for other rip-offs, look up these movies:

    In x-men its a school for mutants not super hero's, the x-men aren't all students and not all students are x-men. also the bad "girl" in sky high can control technology not just metal wich is different than magneeto. also 3-8 on your list is formula and not subject to plagerism , plus its in most movies now a days. so in conclusion you are way off base and wrong.
