Wolverine injects Magneto with the mutant "cure", stripping him of his powers. As the Phoenix destroys the Alcatraz compound all around her, Wolverine attempts to crawl towards her, knowing that he's the only one who can regenerate fast enough to get close to Jean. They face each other, and Phoenix asks him whether he would die for 'them'. Wolverine replies, 'Not for them...for you.' At that moment, Jean's real persona takes over and, with tears in her eyes, asks Wolverine to save her. 'I love you,' he says as he stabs her with his claws. Jean dies in his arms, and all the destruction ceases. The scene then changes, and the camera pans over Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat (Ellen Page) and Storm looking over the graves of Jean Grey, Scott Summers, and Charles Xavier, casualties of the Mutant War. Inside the school, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) sees that Rogue (Anna Paquin) has returned...'cured' but now able to to hold his hand. In another room, Wolverine watches the President on TV, giving a White House Press Conference to introduce the new ambassador to the United Nations and representative to the world for all U.S. citizens both human and mutant...Doctor Hank McCoy (Kelsey Grammer). In the final scene, the now human Eric Lensherr, once known as Magneto, sits alone in a park staring at his chess board. He manages to move one of the metal pieces very slightly, suggesting that his powers may not be totally gone after all.
