Re: Things I have learned today:
Plus he then went on to destroy a Soviet village by erupting a volcano but made sure to give enough time for the populace to escape.
Still, for the Magneto protocols thing. I think a part of him actually thought he was going to die by trying this. Not to mention right before he prayed to God either to survive this or for what sins he was about to comitt I forgot which.
Plus there's the other time Magneto unleashed yet another EMP pulse during Magneto War. Course his claim to doing this was what the US did with Operation Zero Tolerance. Still with Astra destroyed the machine he did try to keep the EM fields steady which caused his powers to go on the fritz and Joseph had to sacrifice himself to repair the damage.
Still, with Magneto to his logic. You attack him or harm mutants' lives? You're gonna regret it, die, or both at the same time.
