Has anyone thought of this? I'm sure you guys have... It just bothers me, not so much as a gaping plot hole, but more of an annoyance... I mean you've seen the clip where he literally breaks the bridge apart and moves it across San Francisco bay (think of how much energy this actually entails - it's really God like power). So why does he care about Jean? This is really Phoenix stuff. I don't think Magneto was ever that powerful in the comics, until he used that 'kick' drug in the 'Planet X' storyline and tore New York to pieces. Why isn't Jean the one moving the bridge? the whole thing just seems senseless to me. Why would he even be scared of Jean if he's that powerful? If he can lift a bridge that weighs hundreds of tonnes, why would he care? Maybe I need to see the movie... maybe there's some unspoken kind of tension where the information is conveyed.... What do you think?
