Still wouldn't say immune.

During the Collective incident, Our Lord Magneto only had a very weak level of control over himself (just enough to tell the New Avengers to kill him). The rest of him was under the control of Xorn.

Protection, sure. Everybody has various degrees of protection from mind-control. She's been mind-controlled by at least Elias Bogan and the android The Fury, and possibly even Xavier, himself.

Again, I wouldn't say immune. Such things have to be maintained, as well, just like practicing martial arts, or they fall to entropy.
