Quote:Magneto is a ruthless terrorist. Putting him on a team with Captain America would devalue Captain America's reputation. It would be seen as Cap using his reputation to somehow legitimize Magneto's.
Quote:If I lived in the Marvel Universe and saw Cap willingly working with a terrorist like Magneto I would lose all respect for Cap. Countless innocent people are dead because of Magneto and if Cap willingly chose to look the other way on that then he's almost just as bad.
Magneto was cleared way back in Xmen vs Avengers (much better than AVX) back in the 80's and it was Cap and team that brought him in. There was a very pivitol scene with both Cap and Mags which made him surrender. Plus he pretty much got legitimized when they gave him Genosha any way.
Where Magneto sent out an EMP wave that cost thousands (Or so.) of lives. He did it out of retaliation, not as a planned or sadistic terrorist attack, but he has a point. And Magneto HAS killed since then. So, yeah.
