- Charles Xavier: No more Magnus... No more!! Logan shall be the last! No one else will ever suffer! You caused the deaths of hundreds today, Magnus - deaths I could have prevented had I stopped you years ago! You have killed too many, Magnus - and I have had enough!! I will make sure - here and now - once and for all - that you never kill again!!
- Onslaught: Homo Sapiens - hear the words of Onslaught! From this day forward, the humans shall no longer inherit the earth! No more shall mutantkind be so savagely oppressed - for today marks the ultimate ascendance of the homo superior race!
- Narration: Neal's a mutant, and a member of the team of outlaw heroes known as the X-Men. By rights, he and his compatriots should be out pursuing villains or saving the world or whatever. Alternatively, given the season, they should be helping fuel the global economy by cruising the malls for gifts.
- Nightcrawler: I love you, Cerise. I love this life. I love the X-Men. But the "I" in all that comes from God. I cannot be true to the rest without being true to Him. Being true to Him, the rest can be set aside.
- [After a pro-mutant group runs away when seeing actual mutants.]
- Gambit: Ideals, mes braves, they're easy to embrace. An' I t'ank you for dat, at least. It's dealin' wit' reality that'll take some work. For all of us.
- Storm: Behold your legacy: generation upon generation of X-Men. The students and children of Charles Xavier, the living embodiment of a dream that remains thriving and strong.
- Charles Xavier: Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Charles Xavier, also known as Professor X. And I am a mutant.
- Magneto: Xavier and his X-men wanted us to build bridges between man and mutant! But we can fly and swim and leap! We will have no need for bridges!
- Magneto: Nazis? Do I look like a failed artist with a neurotic grudge against his father and the world? I am a force of nature, boy. I am Magneto.
About X-Men (comics)
- The X-Men, I did the natural thing there. What would you do with mutants who were just plain boys and girls and certainly not dangerous? You school them. You develop their skills. So I gave them a teacher, Professor X. Of course, it was the natural thing to do, instead of disorienting or alienating people who were different from us, I made the X-Men part of the human race, which they were. Possibly, radiation, if it is beneficial, may create mutants that’ll save us instead of doing us harm. I felt that if we train the mutants our way, they’ll help us - and not only help us, but achieve a measure of growth in their own sense. And so, we could all live together.

- I couldn't have everybody bitten by a radioactive spider or exposed to a gamma ray explosion. And I took the cowardly way out. I said to myself, 'Why don't I just say they're mutants. They were born that way.

- Magneto’s an old terrorist bastard. I got into trouble—the X-Men fans hated me because I made him into a stupid old drug-addicted idiot. He had started out as this sneering, grim terrorist character, so I thought, Well, that’s who he really is. [Writer] Chris Claremont had done a lot of good work over the years to redeem the character: He made him a survivor of the death camps and this noble antihero. And I went in and shat on all of it. It was right after 9/11, and I said there’s nothing f*****g noble about this at all.
