No, you’re not understanding what I’m asking. Jinn are, in Muslim tradition, not-very-well defined supernatural entities that exist on the supernatural plane but can physically manifest. As such, they could explain every single other supernatural entity, including mutants.

If you’re asking ‘why couldn’t there be a plot twist where it turns out Thor is a robot’, there could be. There could also be a plot twist where it turns out the whole universe is powered by the magical screams of a tortured pheonix.

You continue to treat the Marvel universe as though it is real. It is not. It is a narrative universe.

Exactly. So I can make up a narrative where it’s perfectly reasonable for someone to generate atheistic causes to the supposed supernatural phenomena observed within.
