Every time I see those towers collapse I think of Magneto. Don't know why. It's just a reaction me being a comic reader, and the fact that normal human can only imagine how or what could have stopped it. I think Magneto could have prevented the towers from collapsing, allowing everyone to escape the towers. Do you guys think that Magneto's powers could have prevented the two towers from collapsing? 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
Facts: World Trade Center Towers weigh 500,000 tons..... 

          The Golden Gate Bridge weighs 890,000 tons.... 
          Magneto also lifted an island and that weighs well over 100,000,000,000 tons

He probably could have stopped the planes. 
 
This thread will probably get locked.

He was just as taken by surprise by the event, as was shown by his reaction to it in the comics.

@CATPANEXE: He had a reaction? I thought the only superhero that had any sort of comic about it was Spider-Man

@Gambit1024: Dr.Doom wept, same panel as Magneto.

Still doesn't compare to what both Doom and Magneto have done in the MU.

@Primmaster64: I doubt anyone is saying that.

Wow, that is such a load.. Seriously, they might as well be terrorists themselves. And they were human, so why would Magneto even care?

Why did Magneto and Doom even cared?

Because the news media were focusing on the Al Quada, and Magneto and Doom only kill people with intents to harm them (or other mutants for Magneto) Not innocent people. You never know, some people working inside the building of the Wold Trade Center were probably mutants. So that also says something about it. 
 
Notice how Juggernaut is standing there too... Juggernaut is not a killer, when he walks into town, he stomps hard so that people will run away (innocent people) so that when he crushes a building, the building is completely empty of "innocent bystanders".

It was an artistic statement?  

Anyways I was answering where he was at the time in question, I didn't write the issue of Spider-Man as it were.

A lot more characters could have stopped it then Magneto.

Most characters including Magneto could only help out to an extent. Characters like Thor, Sentry, Ironman, and more could have stopped the plane but only a few could stop the actual destruction of the towers. Magneto could have and characters with vast telekinetic powers could actually stop the destruction of the towers after te planes hit.

I don't think Magneto could've held the buildings up because there's so much more than metal involved, and holding up one building (let alone 2) would probably take a hell of a lot of concentration. Dude's head probably would've exploded from that kind of strain. He, and many many others could've done something about the planes.

what comic is that from?

I'd say Invisible Woman would do a heck of a better job than Magneto.
