* 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.

* ThoseWhoFightMonsters: What else would you expect, when one's abilities have allowed him to live through the Holocaust, [[RedScare McCarthyism]], the CivilRightsMovement, the VietnamWar, 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]]''.

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: Before I became Magneto, my wife Magda and I tried to live an ordinary live with our daughter Anya. That changed when she burned to death in a fire, right in front of my very eyes, as humans prevented us from doing anything to save her. They did not have long to ''regret'' that decision.


Added DiffLines:

* DisappearedDad: In my defence, I did not know Pietro and Wanda were alive or my children until well into their adulthood. As to Lorna, I did know she was my daughter, but made no attempt to contact her.


Added DiffLines:

* MadScientist: In my earlier exploits, I frequently displayed an aptitude for incredible acts of science, once managing to renovate Charles' house into a full-blown cloning facility, to say nothing of my skills at building vast complexes in improbable places, like underneath the Antarctic ice, or in an asteroid.


Added DiffLines:

* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: For all I do respect, and care for Charles, his naïve idealism about mutant and human coexistence blinded him to reality.

The one good thing I remember from those years was my darling love, Magda, a Romani girl interned with me, and during the October 7th revolt in 1944 the pair of us managed to make our escape. We fled to the Ukraine and lived out the remainder of [[WorldWar2 the war]] and its aftermath in relative peace with her family, and Magda bore us a daughter, Anya. We were happy together, though I hid from my wife a great secret I was only just uncovering myself -- I was [[SuperpowerfulGenetics a mutant]], born with the power to [[MagnetismManipulation manipulate magnetic fields and master the entire electro-magnetic spectrum]].
