* AxCrazy

to:

* AxCrazy AxCrazy: He does not take prisoners, he just butchers entire towns.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Most of the Khador army hates him and only puts up with him because of the Empress wants him around. And with good reason, not only did he kill his own men when they tried to restrain him from killing that surrendering garrison, he wipes out entire settlements rather than accepting surrenders, something Khador does not want as it will make the people they conquer more opposed to their rule.



* GlassCannon: Has the highest focus in the game and a very strong spell list, but she dies just easily as you'd expect a teenage girl to.



In short he's basically superman, but with a sword and no crazy powers and just as impossible to kill.

* {{Badass}}: In a WorldOfBadass setting, it takes effort to stand out. Magnus is considered the biggest threat to Cygnar, not the nightmarish empire ruled by dragons, the violent relgious fanatics on their southern border or the militant imperialists, or the death-obssessed, pain-loving conquerors led by the tyranical former king, but the lone traitorous officer with a prosthetic arm and leg.
** Probably the best way to explain this is that Magnus has never really had his plans screw up, every step he takes has brought him closer and closer to attaining his goals, even his run in with Vinter and the skorne barely set him back. Considering his goal is the complete control of Cygnar and the fact that he may be the most competent ChessMaster in the setting its little wonder that the Cygnaran government is getting worried.

* {{Badass}}: Mikael once [[CurbStompBattle completely decimated]] [[TooDumbToLive some very stupid]] grave robbers raiding a scared crypt with nothing but his [[GoodOldFisticuffs bare hands]]. And this was before he became highly trained spell-sling battle cleric with a 12ft mechanical bodyguard. He also has no problem calling out the Protectorate's leaders, including Hierarch Voyle and calling Servath Reznik nothing more than a blunt tool used by the priests to get rid of people they don't like.



* {{Badass}}: If walking through hell and coming back doesn't qualify nothing does.



* {{Badass}}: Comes standard with being one from the Order of the Wall.



* {{Badass}}: Capable of fighting every other dragon in existence at once, or [[CurbStompBattle curb stomping]] just about anything short of that.



* {{Badass}}: Outside of The Butcher, he's a contender for most dangerous melee warcaster.
