Magneto helmet looks dorky.

I get that they're going with the comic book look, but the thing is, that helmet looks great...on the whole proper costume with the cape and other bits. Him wearing the helmet with the yellow parachute suit looks totally mismatched.

I would have been cool with just a simple, 1st version motorcycle helmet refitted to his purpose (which was, if I'm correct, to block out xavier's mind controlling powers), then later on he'd get a proper helmet to match his later and more iconic garb.

Actually, lemme watch the movie first then make the conclusion >.>

bacon does make everything better. wait that is the food group. I don't know. how are they going to correct that emma was a teen in the wolverine movie and is "fully developed" in this movie taking place many years prior. I guess there is some first class comic that I haven't read, but I am confused.
