Have LDS apologists deemphasized aspects of Quetzalcoatl which are inconsistent with Jesus Christ?

So, have “LDS apologists” (meaning, in this case, any LDS scholar) ignored or deemphasized aspects of the Quetzalcoatl legend? Those (e.g., Milton R. Hunter) who have seen Quetzalcoatl as evidence for Christ’s visit to the Americas generally saw the Quetzalcoatl legend as an apostate remnant of the truth. Thus, they saw some parallels which they felt applied to Jesus, while recognizing that fifteen hundred years of apostasy and corruption led to other elements being “grafted on” or altered. While a legitimate perspective, this approach has the disadvantage of seeing parallels and ignoring contradictory aspects.
