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 UsefulNotes/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/{{The 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.

But if [[SecretIdentity Max Eisenhardt]] was anything, he was a [[TheDeterminator survivor]].

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 [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII 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]].

** However, the same cannot be said about my odious incarnation in the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe. Whereas I fight only to protect mutantkind, he actively encourages mutants to kill and terrorize humans as part of his "mutant supremacy" creed. He has taken separation from humanity to the extreme, attempting to create a new mutant culture to the extent of devising new "mutant commandmants" (something I can almost grudgingly respect), very similar to Himmler and Hitler's efforts at building up their new "Aryan culture"... and also denigrating humanity to levels of the worst form of Untermensch. Filth that they were, even the ''Nazis'' did not consider cannibalism as an appropriate "use" for their undesirables, whilst this twisted mutant once threatened on live television to keep surviving humans as literal ''livestock'' for the new mutant civilization. That this psychotic charlatan dares claim the mantle of Master Of Magnetism is an insult, and he should count himself lucky that he was killed by that universe's Cyclops in retaliation for [[ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}} the cataclysm he caused]], as I would have found a way to destroy him for tainting my name eventually. I find a dark satisfaction in the knowledge that, unlike my own mutant brethren, the mutants of the Ultimate universe are the result of failed attempts at recreating the serum that created their version of CaptainAmerica that entered the human gene pool, the reveal of which destroyed the resolve of my impotent counterpart. [[spoiler: Naturally, I consider any rumors that my own mutants being just one of several results of the Celestials tampering with the human genome in prehistory to be nothing but transparent anti-mutant propaganda]]

* BadassGrandpa: I have [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers two grandsons]], who helped me find their mother the last time she went missing, and [[ComicBook/TheInhumans a granddaughter]].


Added DiffLines:

* OldSuperhero: I have spent decades protecting mutants from the depravations of ''homo sapiens'' and my power only grows with my experience (doubtless you believe some of that time was spent as a super''villain''). I also have [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers two grandsons]], who helped me find their mother the last time she went missing, and [[ComicBook/TheInhumans a granddaughter]].

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneUtility: Perhaps more like Artistic Utility, but my life-sized steel sculpture CallingCards should count as this.


Added DiffLines:

* WeddingEnhancedFertility: Magda, a female Holocaust survivor, bore me a child not a few years after escaping the concentration camp.

Added DiffLines:

* ConvectionSchmonvection: ''Of course'' I can fuse metal together in close proximity to my skin. For obvious reasons it does not harm me.

Added DiffLines:

* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: On our last date, dear Isabelle showed up in a yellow sarong, but as soon as we got to my hotel room she was wearing a black dress.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindIdiotTranslation: I am the Master Of '''Magnetism''', not the "Master of Magnet" as one of the ridiculous "video games" once portrayed me, nor do I ever invite my opponents to be "Welcome to Die!".


* SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreX: Before I met [[spoiler:Rogue]], I generally was romantically or sexually involved with non-mutant women dear departed Magda, Isabelle, Polaris's mother, the back-stabbing Wasp, and Cyclops' former lover Lee Forrester, and now mutant-fangirl Briar Raleigh.

The back-stabbing Wasp has powers, but as a result of experimentation, not the mutant gene.

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: My father never told me how he saved Major Scharf's life, only that it was too ugly to tell me at the age of sixteen.
