I love that Magneto helmet... but I remember he did manage to be pretty badass without it in many scenes of the earlier trilogy. Such as when he went into Senator Kelly's cell and ripped off the window bars, when he escaped his own plastic prison cell, when he stopped the X-jet from smashing into the ground, when he ripped the metal door off the room where Mystique had locked herself from Stryker at the dam.
So he doesn't NEED the helmet to deliver awesome action...
