** It is also why I am able to fight those with similar abilities who truly CAN be considered UnskilledButStrong. I once did battle with a cosmically powered {{Spider-Man}} on my own. On [[ComicBook/SecretWars another occasion]], I told the assembled heroes of the MarvelUniverse that only ComicBook/TheMightyThor was my equal in power. No one argued the point with me.

In my role as a so-called villain and opponent to the Franchise/XMen, I was created by Creator/StanLee and Creator/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.

* ThoseWhoFightMonsters: What else would you expect, when one's abilities have allowed him to live through the Holocaust, [[RedScare McCarthyism]], the CivilRightsMovement, UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, the AIDS epidemic and subsequent witch-hunting vilification of homosexuals... I have seen, to quote Burns, "Man's inhumanity to Man," again and again. In the past, I tried to use my gifts quietly for the betterment of all, like Charles... but I have come to see how slow, inefficient, and utterly futile this method is -- how millions suffer and continue to suffer while the pacifistic way simply scratches the surface of Hatred. I see how naive I was to ever believe that peace alone could fight hatred. I know now that the fastest, surest way to eliminate hate is to do just that... ''[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans eliminate it]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* AboveGoodAndEvil: As I told Joseph during our last encounter, there are no heroes or villains there is only what I want and how I'll get it. I have no use for imaginary dichotomies.

** Likewise, my film counterpart, while charismatic, and certainly true in every regard about mankind's treatment of mutants, is still an utter self-serving bastard, who attempted genocide on mankind using Charles himself.

** Likewise, my film counterpart, while charismatic, and certainly true in every regard about mankind's treatment of mutants, is still an utter self-serving bastard, who attempted genocide on mankind using Charles himself. He did eventually see sense, however.
*** Thankfully, in the altered timeline, his younger counterpart saw sense a great deal sooner.

(The above should be read in the voice of Creator/IanMcKellen, David Hemblen, or Creator/TomKane. If read in the voice of John Stephenson, all references to yourself should be in the third person.)

* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Yes, my "human" name translates roughly into "intensely strong iron". Plus, I have used "Magnus" as a middle name since the ill-fated incident that cost me the closest to family I could ever experience. Though, I believe that "Magneto" is a far more superior and indicative moniker.

** There's also Richard Green from the second ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' and the first ''VideoGame/MarvelUlimateAlliance'' game.
** Similarly, Creator/FredTatasciore gave this to me in ''VideoGame/XMenNextDimension'', ''X2: Wolverine's Revenge'', and the second ''VideoGame/MarvelUlimateAlliance'' game.

Despite my resentment towards humans, I admit that some of them have portrayed me in a clever way in the films. The actors that played me are Creator/IanMcKellen and Creator/MichaelFassbender. My voice was also given by John Stephenson, [[WesternAnimation/XMen David Hemblen]], [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution Christopher Judge]], [[VideoGame/XMenLegends Tony Jay, Richard Green]], [[MarvelUltimateAlliance John DiMaggio]], and [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen Tom]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom Kane]].
