* The officer who protects Kitty on the subway is similarly awesome. A group of heavily-armed paramilitary types break into the subway car, gunning for Kitty. His reaction? "Get behind me, kid! I'll protect you!" He's way out of his league, but he doesn't let that stop him from putting himself between a child and those who would harm her. Even Magneto treats him with respect for his actions.

--> ''Stryker (outraged):'' Human? You dare call that -- ''thing'' -- human!?!
--> ''Kitty (passionately):'' More human than ''you''! Nightcrawler's generous and kind and decent! He had every reason to be bitter, every excuse to become as much of a demon inside as out. But he decided he'd rather learn to ''laugh'' instead! I hope I can be half the person he is. And if I have to choose between caring for my friend and believing in your God, then I choose my -- my friend!

* Facing the armored Purifiers, the X-Men are on the ropes when suddenly, the men are lifted up, their armor coming apart and then reforming into prisons to keep them captive. Whirling about, the X-Men see the last person they ever would have expected to come to their aid:
-->'''Magneto''': Sheathe your claws, Wolverine. Magneto is here as a friend. And, if you'll have me, an ally.
