Wolverine, Banshee and perhaps even Thunderbird might be given to occasional exclamations in their native languages or dialects, but Colossus, Nightcrawler and Storm were taught English with a quick zap from Xavier.

We've wondered before whether the professor's history indicates he should have a Boston accent, and whether that would come thru in the language lesson, but even without that it seems unlikely that his "pupils" would somehow hand on to exclamations in anything other than English.

I thought this issue was damn near perfect, and then Doom showed up at the
end it turns out this issue is maximum perfection!

Pure Marvel goodness!

Storm/Ororo would regularly make exclamations about a 'goddess'. I guessed Chris Claremont didn't know any Swahili that could serve the same purpose as 'begorah', 'unglablich' or 'sapriste' etc. We're lucky she didn't say 'jambo' to everybody.

Magneto's jewishness does seem to date back to before the movies, but I've gotten so many of the 'Acts Of Venegenace' issues now it's difficult to dig out the one where he flips out at the Red Skull as a Nazi based on it, if it wasn't some other comic from that time they were both in...

I called him Magnus in a margin note in “Days of Future Past”. Didn’t intend it to be his real name.
