The main idea of prison is to rehabilitate criminals so they can be released back into society safely. Magneto losing his powers was his rehabilitation as such. I assume the authorities think that Magneto's power loss is permanent so he will no longer want ...

The two uses of powers were not similar. In X3, Jean is reluctant to use her Phoenix powers against Logan. She holds back, out of moral and emotion conflicts. She's spent her entire life trying to snuff out the Phoenix side of her, and in that timeline, Xavier has put mental blocks on her to protect everyone and herself from that power. And all the ...

Yes, it's pretty definite that Jean killed Scott. She never comes right out and says it, since her Dark Phoenix persona remains dominant for most of the movie, but there are several lines of dialogue that make it clear that's what happened. Jean almost admits what she did in the exchange with Logan, when she returns to the X Mansion. Dark Phoenix Jean ...
