|Magneto is going to have a real problem in this film because he tells Charles, "Whatever it was you thought you saw in me, it died with my family." I believe the death of his family he mentions here is the wife who left him after their daughter died from a mob attacking Magneto because he unleashed his powers but couldn't save their daughter, Anya. After the wife left Erik, his wife gave birth to twins, who would become Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, although they weren't known to him. Quicksilver will be now, as he reveals to Mystique in the trailer, and that "new family" Magneto discovers may be the crucial key Magneto needs to turning against Apocalypse and saving humanity from total destruction.|
The film is part rescue mission (to get Charles back from Apocalypse) and part saving the world. When we see Charles, he wears a suit jacket and a lavender T-shirt underneath. This is rather an odd combination. It suggests his professional and class distinction with the jacket, but his down-to-earth sensibility with the T-shirt. When Charles pleads with Magneto not to join Apocalypse, his jacket is no where to be seen, he's just in the T-shirt (lavender is a pastel of purple, and purple we know is a symbol for suffering, not just his physical suffering from what Magneto accidentally did to him, but the mental burdens he puts upon himself in running the school and his mutant mind-reading powers). Pysch-locke (Olivia Munn) also has purple has part or her costume, and that's because she uses her suffering as a justification for joining Apocalypse, so she won't have to suffer anymore, whereas Charles, in understanding that suffering can be redemptive and help us to become better people, fights against Apocalypse because in spite of the problems this world has, it's infinitely better than any world Apocalypse could possibly create.
