* RebelliousSpirit: I have a bit of a problem with authority, as you might imagine, and I don't recognize peers easily. It should go without saying that I call no man "master," save myself. That said, [[{{Hypocrite}} I brook no opposition within my own ranks]].

In my role as a so-called villain and opponent to the Franchise/XMen, I was created by StanLee and JackKirby, first appearing in ''"ComicBook/XMen''" vol. 1 #1 (September, 1963). [[StartOfDarkness The story of my life however, begins rather earlier]] - a Jew, I was born in WeimarRepublic Germany in the late [[TheRoaringTwenties 1920s]] before moving to UsefulNotes/{{Poland}} with my parents in 1939... and those of you with remedial historical training can [[UsefulNotes/{{Holocaust}} venture a guess as to the end result of that]]. As a young man, I witnessed and endured some of the very worst of what humanity had to offer. [[OrphansOrdeal My family was murdered when I was just a boy]], and dumped in a mass grave before my very eyes; soon after, I was myself sent to that hell called Auschwitz and on several occasions I thought I was going to share their fate. While as a ''Sonderkommando'' I was forced, on pain of death, to mete out that same fate to thousands of other innocents as at gunpoint. I and others were made to assist in genocide, to assist those monsters in their gas chambers and furnaces. Lame with hepatitis, [[DespairEventHorizon all hope and reason crushed under the mad Nazi jackboot]], I am ready to admit that so many times I was tempted to resign myself to my black fate.

* TheRival: Charles Xavier, as a result of our differing views on whether mutantkind and man can live in peace or not; in the wider MarvelUniverse, my rival is instead SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom. I am the closest he considers to be legitimate competition.

In the face of ever growing anti-mutant persecution, I remade myself as Magneto, a living example of [[IronicEcho mutant superiority,]] of mutant ''existence'', so as to make a statement that mutants no longer had to hide in the shadows. I declared war on humankind, because I realized that force was the only thing humans understood, and the only thing that would save mutants from an identical fate. Xavier, now a cripple, made clear he opposed my plans, and I clashed time and time again with his band of mutant heroes, the X-Men. They thwarted plan after plan, and battled me and my Brotherhood, amongst whom were two bitter young mutant twins called the ScarletWitch and ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} -- whom I later learnt were Wanda and Pietro, my children by Magda, though unfortunately only after my radical ways had proceeded to alienate us from one another.

** Don't even mention the ''ComicBook/RedSkull'' to me. Then you will see how "evil" I can be. [[spoiler:Speaking of the Skull, the fool managed to steal Charles' brain to gain new "powers" and exploit both humans and mutants. I will learn upon this in the tie-in prelude to the Autumn 2014 event ''ComicBook/{{AXIS}}'' in my own title. For my friend's sake, THE. SKULL. MUST. PAY. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Unfortunately in my blind rage I killed the Skull only to awaken my darker half]] {{Main/Onslaught}}.]]

* AffablyEvil: In some portrayals, DependingOnTheWriter. Being played by the charming Sir Ian McKellen also emphasizes this in the movies. * AmbiguouslyJewish: Well, I am. This is sometimes intentional, however. Marvel at one point Retconned my ethnic status away while they were preparing for one of my more vicious phases, afraid that such a villain being Jewish would seem anti-Semitic and cause problems. Naturally, no one wondered if it was anti-''mutant''. And if you're wondering what they changed me to, it was, as I sort of mentioned before, a Sinte. It was a rather [[UnfortunateImplications disingenuous move]] given their motivations.
