Quote:He uses some mutants powers to see if Cap was a racist, and sees that he wasn't, so he turns him self in. The court which turns out had a mutant on it wound up acquitting Mags, most likely due to the Mutant of the court.
Not quite- he used his helmet on Cap, which he had modified to give him psionic powers. He then learned that the court had a human bigot on it and used the helmet to purge the man's bigotry from his mind. The court wound up acquitting Magneto and Magneto was left wondering if the court would have reached the same decision if he hadn't tampered with the man's mind.
It's too bad Our Lord Magneto doesn't just go around purging bigotry from people's minds.
