Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

^Interesting, but I don't see Erik thinking that with Kennedy out of the way, mutant-kind would benefit so much more having LBJ in the White House instead. The "provoking a war between mutants and humans" angle wouldn't work since at that point the existence of mutants is still technically a secret and they are in no shape to win. Indeed, it's not until he had the numbers AND the walking nuke that was Jean Grey on his side in X3 that he even attempted to match human forces head-on.

Plus, if Magneto wanted Kennedy dead, he wouldn't use a "magic bullet." He'd just float out into dealey plaza and fold the motorcade in half. The man does not know the meaning of the word "subtle". I mean his wardrobe alone...
