Wow...I forgot about that issue in 616. My brother owns it too.Dr.Strangefate said:Anybody remember that Magneto's been on Trial before?
This is what happened in that issue:
"Magneto has been transferred to Paris where his trial is taking place if front of the International Court of Justice, trigerring an uproar across the world from both pro-mutant and anti-mutant protesters.The X-Men and the New Mutants return from Asgard where they fought Loki, Thor's half-brother. With the New Mutants safe on Muir Island, a dying Xavier begs Cyclops to find those who have been orchestrating terrorist attacks across europe on behalf of the X-Men and of Magneto : Magneto's cause is the cause of all mutants. While the anti-mutant hysteria spreads on, Magneto's trial is going on with an hysterical Jaspers trying to prove the court that Magneto is the lowest kind of scum who ever lived on earth.Eventually, the X-Men discover the guilty parts behind those terrorost attacks : Wolfgang von Strucker's children, aka Fenris, out to settle an old score that their father has with Magneto and Xavier. Magneto realises that there is always a time when past errors of judgement come back to bite you in the behind. After Fenris is neutralised, Xavier, dying from a heart attack, manages to have Magneto as his successor as head of Xavier School before being taken away by Corsair and Lilandra, who sensed her lover’s bad health through their mindlink. Back in New York, Madelyne Pryor is about to give birth."

Since we're pretty damned sure that Magneto is responsible for his Actions, I'm betting Xavier plays around with the Jury and Judge to convict him to rehabilitation at Xavier's Institute. I think that if Emma Frost really is coming back with the New Mutants/Generation X, Magneto would make an even better co-teacher than Banshee... and It would be nice to see the school slowly turn into... well... a school. Magneto's not going to become good, but I bet Charles could ... convince him to teach the next generation of Mutants, so they can develop their own views.....
It'd also be nice to see the Fenris Twins be involved.
But yeah, its very important to remember that Magneto had the president wimpering at his feet. Hulk killed two-hundred people, Magneto almost killed the president. actuallly, I wouldnt be surprised if people dont want him executed. He is a figure-head, an opposition to Xavier's dream, but still a Leader in the strongest sense. His death would have the international Brotherhoods up in arms against America. Highly controlled conformation i think is the most likely path, possibly with Xavier limiting the strength of his Power with mind-blocks (like he did with Jean Grey's Telepathy).
Either way, he's not going to die any time soon, and Id suspect they take the route similarish to the original series.

elfreo said:Nah, theres really no way they can keep magneto in a cell long enough to hold a trial. The guys just way too powerful. I mean, its not like the banner trial where they can suppress his powers, remiember the guys so powerful, he BROKE IN to the ultimates base and took them all out just to punish his children (ultimate war). if that aint cocky i dont know what is.
It really is. Yes, this guy broke into the Trisk, but that doesn't mean anything when he's in it and kept at bay. They can hold Mags long enough for a trial. They'd more than likely do a same scenario as with the Banner, and keep Magneto in his cell while the trial goes on, though I doubt they'd have any camera in Mageneto's vicinity.Goodwill said:I think they could definitely hold Magneto in his cell for a while. Not only have they stripped him of any kind of metal in his general area, but it seems like they are manipulating him when they are giving him enough air conditioning or food. It's definitely possible.

The only person I can see actually succeding breaking Mags out is Mystique. The others....no way.elfreo said:ture, but there's one thing magneto has that banner didn't, and thats connections. im sure the guys got the brotherhood ready to strike at the right moment or something like that. and theres always the possibality that xavier might be communicating with magneto, trying to plan a escape or something.
