I made no mention of telekinesis, and yes, Magneto if anyone would be able to block it, but his brain at the time of the New X-Men 2001 Annual clearly registered as a star. The Magneto stuff that started popping up just a little later on strikes me as revisionist thinking, possibly brought on by Morrison's drug use.

Magneto having been held in concentration camp increases rather than the chances of him doing it to humans.
Maybe, but it's also remarkably short-sighted. Say it hadn't been stopped and one kid survives before the camps are liberated, then grows up to pass Project Wideawake in the Senate as vengeance against Magneto killing his family. It's an endless cycle, and Magneto is much smarter than that. In fact, his tactical ability (when he's written well) should be on par with Steve Rogers and Nick Fury, not a genocidal Elmer Fudd.
