smt i can’t stop thinking about:
mainverse is 1967, the sobibór trials (for the sobibór extermination camp) were from 1965 to 1966, the frankfurt auschwitz trials were 1963 – 1965. erik lehnsherr being too young/too scared/too preoccupied with running from poland and trying to survive to have any reaction to the nuremberg trials (other than a faint, resentful dismissiveness) ––
but ? in the 60s ? starting to establish himself as magneto ?? imagine there being a direct correlation between his radicalisation with the brotherhood and the broadcasting of the trials ??
the deliberate and informed decision to murder doctors who worked in mutant labs the brotherhood liberates on the spot ? to murder them in punishing and warning ways? a direct contrast to naz/i officials like bauer being allowed to live after death penalties in west germany etc were abolished ?? the resentment of taking their punishment into his own hands (esp. after his background with the mossad in the 50s, seeing eichmann brought to trial etc and getting no satisfaction from it) ??????
tldr: magneto killing bigots his whole life and never respecting what he thinks is a lenient, corrupt, and flawed justice system (in every country/society) !! never being convinced by charles xavier or the avengers or do-good-ers or anyone else that people are best punished by the justice system ???
