Re: X-Men (2000): still a darned good flick

Knowing what we knew ultimately happened to Senator Kelly, it's quite fortunate that Magneto's plan did NOT succeed.

Well, yeah, but since Magneto's plan was to mutate the world leaders in a way that left them alive, that's what we mean when we talk about his plan succeeding -- not just succeeding in irradiating the world leaders, but having the radiation do what he wanted it to do rather than what it actually did to Kelly.

Last month in this thread.........
After seeing something like that, I was expecting a recap of events, although this is kinda true, addressing your "lively debate" with a wall of text a good month after the last post in this thread does not seem logical.

^Well, it took that long for the folks on Law and the Multiverse to craft and post their response to my question (since they presumably had to research and ponder the legal issues first), and my intent was to direct folks here to their analysis, and just to their blog in general, which is really interesting.
