    Magneto's helmet and streamlining continuity some thoughts.

    General fans have a lot of questions in terms of Magneto's helmet and how it protects against telepathy and why he doesn't mass produce it.

    X-Men Red opened up a whale of a plot hole having Jean mass produce the helmet in short order for dozens of characters. I won't even start into how that is problematic. Based on the X-Men Red conception of the idea, its a set of metals easily replaceable and mass producible by anyone. That goes simply too far in both nerfing telepathic attack on the cheap, but also diluting the specialness of his helmet. Its up there with allowing everyone to have an easy make Thor's hammer.

    I am generally of the idea it should be a complex blend of metals not easy to reproduce and augmented by electromagnetic power to produce its effect. There should be only three characters able to reproduce the effect Magneto, Joseph and Lorna.

    I vastly prefer the continuity that developed neglecting the importance of the helmet altogether and instead making it a combo of "strong willpower" and his (and Lorna's) mutation somehow passively shielding them.
    "So many killers... so much screaming... so many dying. I didn't know where to turn, who to help - which sentinel to stop first. And with the accusations of human judgement screaming in my ears... all I could think was that he was right. MAGNETO HAD BEEN RIGHT ALL ALONG!"

    The Red plot was stupid and made NO SENSE especially since Nova easily used her TK to flick off jean's helmet. That made the entire thing pointless

    It felt like the writer wanted to use Magneto, was told no and then came up with a way to use him in spirit. That might not have been how it went down though I would agree it was stupid.

    At the end of the day I felt the Red plotline of a mutant nation was shot out at the knees by the editor at the time refusing to throw his weight behind it and back one horse and craft the line around it so you had one tribe of X-Men fans come along, but not the rest. If editorial really wanted it to work they should have had an event around it, perhaps had Magneto rebuild Genosha as well as a competing island. I know Bunn wanted to do it and started to do it before Secret Wars happened. If the previous editor had done it that way you have a line with one or two core titles and a bunch of satellite titles instead of a bunch of disconnected color coded comics living in their own universe.
