McKellen never worked for me as Magneto he seemed too stuffy, old, and British. Which is fine and good in their own rights but I never bought it. Mostly the facial controtions he made (augmented by the EM field) using the mutation device in the first movie, and him snarking with Mystique like he was a 13-year-old girl in the second movie.
Magento believes he is superior, so it didn't surprise me that he's be a stuck up, catty snob. Look at how he talks to Charles. One minute he's calling him "good friend" the next it's "You're a fool!"
Aye. One of Magneto's defining traits is his arrogance. As a powerful mutant, he believes he's better than the rest of humanity. In a way, he kind of projects the image of a haughty, overbearing college professor, whereas Professor Xavier is down-to-earth and non-judgmental.
