THE X-MEN PROJECT: CHAPTER 2 - MAGNETO WAS RIGHT | AndersonVision
Max Eisenhardt or Erik Magnus Lehnsherr was a victim of the Holocaust. Depending on where you came to the X-Men, you either met him as a youth displaying his powers in a futile attempt to save his mother. Older fans know Magneto's origins from his multiple flashbacks during the Claremont era. Young Magnus was lined up with a group of other camp members and brutally shot down. The difference was that Magnus survived and while he was buried alive, his powers appeared. Slowly but surely, he magnetically pulled himself up to the top by dragging against the metal in the ground and in his fellow victims.
