-Magneto, X-Men #3 ‘Fallout’ (X-Men:Rubicon 3 of 3)
"I save you, X-Men, because that is my task in life…To safeguard my people—Homo Sapiens Superior—Mutantkind—from those who would do us harm. And those forces are legion. In that, I suspect nothing else, Charles, we are much alike. I have survived one holocaust, I could not tolerate another. Nor any who—by accident, by intent—act to bring it about. I bore no animus to you, old friend, or your students,until you chose to oppose me. Then, I had no choice but to count you among my enemies. Have no illusions on that score. Perhaps it’s best it end this way, Charles. Best for my dream to end in flames and glory here far above Earth…for if we were ever to meet again…I would have shown you no mercy. I give you your dream, Charles. But I fear, in time, your heart will break, as you realize it has ever been a fool’s hope. Farewell, my friend."
First off... I've missed you! Secondly... McKellen/Fassbender are precious.
The banter during the SDCC panel was hilarious. And when Sir Ian goes “nevermind, cuz I know Patrick gets jealous,” Patrick Stewart’s face was like “nope, don’t bring me into this, old friend”. What I would give to spend just a few minutes on that set.
