After stopping the Blob by a mindwipe, this time they're safe thanks to...erm...him just not being interested in anything mutant-related anymore. This is kinda better.

Is it possible, Stan was slightly hinting, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver aren't that evil? I get the slight hint...when they frequently say, there only in it, because Magneto saved their lives, they don't want to do this, or the Witch about to quit at the end, only for Quicksilver to delay this until after the escape...when they probably have forgotten about it already.

Scott now is the leader of the X-Men. So this marks the beginning of Avengers vs. X-Men, in a way. My opinion? Yeah, going through the X-Men, nobody else seems all that qualified...maybe Marvel Girl, but this were the sixties and girls had cooties. Still: Professor X could have prepared Scott better. Or make the task easier, then: "This is Cerebro. It will make a constant beep, as long as everything is A-OK. Your job is to stay here at all times and listen, when it stops beeping, got that?"

But maybe he only made Scott leader so quickly, because he read his mind and got, that Scott was about to quit...so by making him leader he could turn his rampaging sense of responsibility into another direction.

Oh yeah, the story itself: It's ok. A little transition, a little worldbuilding, but all in all it's a "building up the threat, announcing the fight, then fight and the villains escape." Nothing groundbreaking, but a solid execution. And once again Magneto shows he is a terrible choice as a mutant leader, not showing an ounce of respect to his fellow mutants. What an idiot.


The first and last appearance of the Magneto Mobile. They should have it in the next X-Men movie.
