Factual error: When Magneto enters RFK stadium, a groundskeeper is lining a baseball field. RFK stadium did not host baseball in 1973, as the Washington Senators had moved to Texas to become the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season. In 1973, the only team playing in RFK regularly was the Washington Redskins of the NFL. In addition, the Paris Peace Accords were signed in January of 1973; so there wouldn't be green grass inside the stadium, regardless of what sports were being played there.
Magneto impales Wolverine with metal rods and throws him into the Potomac. Mystique shoots Magneto in the throat and points the gun at Trask, but Xavier persuades her not to kill him. Mystique and Magneto escape. Because Mystique didn't kill Trask, the Sentinel program is shut down and Wolverine wakes up in a peaceful future where Jean, Scott and others are still alive and living happily at the X-Mansion. Back in the past, Wolverine is fished out of the water by police and they hand him over to William Stryker, who turns out to be Mystique….
Question: Who put Magneto in that plastic prison? Nixon and his cabinet don't seem know anything about mutants or see them as a threat (even after Cuba). Yet they put Magneto in a plastic prison as they know he can bend metal, so why wasn't anyone in the US government and most notably the President informed of this fact? It would have made Trask's appeals a lot more justified. Even likely sentinels would have been put into action a lot sooner rather then later.
