Army Colnel: What are you doing!?
Magneto: Swatting a gnat.
— Pryde of the X-Men
"You want us at war with the humans, and now you have it. I take no joy in that. I take no pleasure in it. But we either chose to win this war and live free, or lie down and let you enslave us. Torture us. Kill us. Humans and mutants cannot live together in peace. Your God has selected the Mutant as the dominant species on the planet. I am Magneto. I am mutant. And you will not take this world from me."
"I call NO ONE master! Especially not one who would destroy the innocent along with the guilty!"
"When I was a boy, I saw men executed. Women and children. Each night, I swore to myself, never again. ...But, we must prevail. Goodbye, Senator. Mutant liberation begins."
"A man with metal bones should have more sense than to break into my house."
