Wondering about Juggernaut & Leach off of the X3?

#1 Posted by LuckyLeft (40 posts) - - Show Bio

Can Leech's powers really negate the magical elements of Cyttorak if Juggs gets close enough, or is that just the movie?


Just wonderin'. I do remember Leech, but I always grew up under the impression that his power only affected mutants, and well, Juggs is magical......

That movie was all messed up. In X3, Juggernaut was not magically empowered, just a really strong and invulnerable mutant. Plus, he's not even related to Xavier in the movie.

But yeah he was a mutant in X3. So it's better just forgotten.

Leech can neutralise the powers of other powered beings. 

 

I don't recall the movie Juggernaut stating that his strength was mystical.  He clearly wasn't Xavier's step-brother (Vinnie Jones realted to Patrick Stewart?  As if!).  So perhaps movie-Juggernaut was just another mutant after all...?

yea i think they were trying to pass him off as just a mutant in the movie rather than going into depth about his true origins.

The only reason they had Juggernaut as a mutant because as they put him in the film they had to have a way of stopping him, leech has no affect on magical powers. As for the being related to Xavier thing well that would have added an entire other storyline to the film which would have taken away from Jean going loony.

Don't try and get your mind around that one, the movie is its own universe, if your questioning this why not question the fact Phoenix kills Proffesor X, or the fact that Wolverine meets the X-Men after being saved by Storm and Cyclops?
