Magneto (Max Eisenhardt, Marvel Prime)

An analogy I always liked for Magneto is that he is the Malcolm X to Professor X’s Martin Luther King. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Magneto has been the X-men greatest enemy and their most powerful ally. Born during WWII, the young Jewish boy survived the encampments of the Nazi and the Holocaust. He see mutants as the next evolution of mankind and believe humans will do to them what Nazi did to the Jewish people.

But that doesn’t mean he is pure evil. He has helped the X-men on a number of occasions, even joining and leading the team for quite a while. After M-Day, he has remained with the team to help save what few mutant there is left.

As for figure, Magneto really only gets his classic version (which they still haven’t gotten right). That’s just what people think when they think of Magneto.


Made:

Classic

01

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Toy-r-Us Exclusive Jubilee wave Magneto

  • Background:
    • This is the costume that Magneto is almost always known for. It is also the first costume he wore in the comics.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Well there is only one costume of Magneto and he is the X-men greatest foe, who you can decide for yourself if you want to try and hunt down this or the Toybiz one.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Yes. Both companies can’t seem to get this right.

All-New, All-Different

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends X-men Apocalypse wave Magneto

  • Background:
    • After the Secret Wars and it was discovered that the Terrigen Cloud was causing the mutant to contract the deadly M-pox, a sinister enterprise known as Someday Enterprise offered to cryogenic freeze mutant until a cure could be found. Magneto knew something was up and gather other mutants to make his own X-men team.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • While most people would want his classic version, I think this is a nice version if you wanted the most modern version. As a matter of fact if you have the X-Force Archangel and Fantomex, you actually have 3 members of this team. Hasbro has done Psylocke and Sabretooth in the same wave (not in the correct costume though) maybe Monet is nexted?
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No

Need

Below is a gallery of costumes that still need to be made. Click on the image to see chances of it being made. Please note that this is my personal opinion and not fact.
