I have to be honest. its is clearly not easy to portray mutant powers on screen and make it cool. orgins really shows some of the dumbest powers ever. they've done a decent job with wolverine's claws and magneto's magnetism and other powers. but i must say that magnetism is now the coolest mutant power. i wish i could move metal. in the animated series and the comic we always saw purple shock waves. Now magneto is a serious movie character who is a force to be wreckoned with. he has become a cool cinematic sci fi character.
