Factual error: Take a look at Google Earth - the section of the Golden Gate Bridge Magneto breaks off (about a mile - tower to tower plus a section each end) isn't anywhere near long enough to reach Alcatraz from anywhere on the mainland.
Jean completely disintergrates Xavier, after killing Scott earlier in the movie. Magneto uses his powers to rip the Golden Gate bridge off the mainland and connect it to Alcatraz - where the brotherhood plan to kill Leech (the source of the cure). However - there are plenty of troops and guns - plastic cure darts which make Magneto's powers useless. Then the X-men arrive to hold the brotherhood back so that they can keep Leech safe. Storm electrocutes Callisto and Leech's powers causes Juggernaut to knock himself out. In the showdown between Iceman and Pyro, Iceman can't hold Pyro's flames and gets engulfed, but then he rises as the famous Iceman we remember from the comics (looking like he is made of ice) then knocks Pyro out. Beast then plunges a cure dart into Magneto and he is cured. Then Jean starts to disintergrate everyone who gets in her way. Logan makes his way towards her and his clothes disintergrate but his healing power manages to keep him alive. He yells "I love you" before plunging his claws into her. Back at school, Rogue returns and she is cured. She can touch Iceman now. Near the end of the movie, we see three gravestones - one for each Jean, Scott, and Xavier. The movie then moves on to a bunch of people playing chess and Magneto is by himself. His chess pieces are metallic and he moves his hand over one of them and it moves ever so slightly. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene. AFTER the credits, we see Dr Moira MacTaggart and a catatonic patient. He wakes and says, "Hello Moira," and she says, "Charles?". As Xavier had explained earlier on, he has now (possibly) put his consciousness into the catatonic patient.
Eric Lensherr: Charles Xavier did more for mutants than you will ever know. My single greatest regret is that he had to die for our dream to live.
Trivia: The combat simulation the X-Men are running on their first appearance in the film features the dread Sentinel robots. Originally, these were meant to appear in the second movie already, but the idea was scrapped. The simulation also bears a close reference to the parallel comic storyline and later movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, where the Sentinels rebelled against humanity, killed most of Earth's superheroes and erected a totalitarian regime in the US.
Question: I have three questions regarding the end scene. 1. How come Jean can't crush Wolverine's body? I ask this because we can see her easily kill all people who walk too close to her. 2. Why didn't Wolverine inject Jean with the cure instead of killing her? 3. What would happen if Jean got injected with the cure?
