Magneto: What's your name?
Pyro: John.
Magneto: What's your real name, John?
Pyro: Pyro.

Magneto: Quite a talent you have there, Pyro.
Pyro: [Flames appear in Pyro's hand] I can only manipulate the fire. I can't create it.
Magneto: You're a god among insects.

[regarding Mystique] Such a shame. She was so beautiful.

Eric Lensherr: I'm...
Logan: One of them?

[to Professor X] You should have killed me when you had the chance!

The professor thought you would be able to figure it out on your own. He gives you more credit than I do.

[approaching an incapacitated Xavier] How does it look from there Charles? Still fighting the good fight? From here it looks like they're not playing by your rules... Maybe it's time to play by theirs!

Professor X: Eric what have you done?
Magneto: I'm sorry, Charles. I couldn't help it.
Professor X: What have you told Stryker?
Magneto: Everything.

Pyro: So, they say you're the bad guy.
Magneto: Is that what they say?
Pyro: That's a dorky-looking helmet. What's it for?
Magneto: This "dorky-looking helmet" is the only thing that's gonna protect me from the real bad guys.

Dr. Jean Grey: Why do you need us?
Magneto: Mystique has discovered plans of a base that Stryker's been operating out of for decades. Only we don't know where it is. We thought one of you might.
Wolverine: The professor already tried.
Magneto: [sighs] Once again, you think it's all about you.

[about Mystique]
Wolverine: She's good.
Magneto: You have no idea.

Dr. Jean Grey: I saw Senator Kelly.
Magneto: So, the senator survived the fall, and the swim to shore. He's become more powerful than I imagined.
Dr. Jean Grey: He's dead. Just like all those people out there will be.
Storm: It's true. I watched him die.
Magneto: Are you sure you saw what you saw?
