Quotes by Erik Magnus (Earth-58163)
- Humans, we didn't start this conflict. You hunted us, killed us...tried to wipe us from the face of the earth. You declared war on mutantkind. Today, mutantkind declares war on you. We will not run. We will not hide. We will stand up for ourselves and each other. Wherever mutants are harmed or oppressed, you will find us. Wherever the shadow of sentinels darkens the ground, we will follow. If you are a human, now is the time to rethink how you trust us, for your own sake. If you are a mutant...take heart. You are not alone.
- I will plunge this island into the ocean. I will kill every mutant in this country rather than see them continue to suffer. Death or surrender, human. I leave the choice to you.
- Brothers and sisters! They send non-metal Sentinels to attack us! They think because my power can't affect them, we are all helpless! Bur our struggle is not about me. It never was. It's about you. About heroes like Charles Xavier who gave their lives for our freedom. We stand as one. As a nation! As a people! And today we will know liberation -- or death!
- You're right, Wanda. It's everything I ever wanted. All of my dreams...have come true.
- You could make the argument that I deserve this watery grave. Poetic justice. A man who spends his mornings in silk robes -- sipping juice and bemoaning his boring life of leisure and opulence -- might be begging for a rough afternoon. I longed for the conflict and discord of my youth -- yet now here I float in what's left of my flooded royal library. Shot in the chest with an assassin's arrow -- my mutant powers inexplicably neutralized. You could certainly say I had all of it coming. Go ahead. Say it. Say it to my face. See what happens.
- My war was always about the future. About lighting a spark -- that could grow into the flame my grandchildren might carry into battle. I knew mutants would one day rise up to take this domain from the humans. But I had no idea how quickly that day would come. I could picture the greatness mutantkind would achieve in the new realm they'd build. But I never once imagined... that I'd by around to see it.
