Well frankly the idea that the FF were the "only" super heroes around or the X-Men as the only super powered beings around always struck me as somewhat odd in that they all came from the same "universe". I can understand the whole "well you can't mention Iron Man in a Fox movie" and I can take it to a point.

It's a name - big deal.
Well, to Marvel it is. I'm pretty sure in situations like this you can't even mention a character without having some kind of a license to use them.
