What does Perfection mean?

Perfection refers to a memorable quote from X-Men: First Class, said by Magneto.

Online, the scene is used as an exploitable image macro on multi-panel memes, where Magneto asks for something twice, and in the end utters “Perfection”.


What's the origin of Perfection?

X-Men: First Class premiered in the United States on May 25th, 2011.

In one of the scenes Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, also known as Magneto, is being seduced by the shapeshifting Raven (played by Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence respectively), who initially transforms into an attractive blonde woman (portrayed by Rebecca Romijn).

Magneto then says, “I prefer the real Raven”.

When Raven then transforms into a form with human-like skin, he replies “I said the real Raven”.

It is after she turns into her blue appearance that Erik utters the line “Perfection”.
