MAGNETO
CIVILIAN NAME
Not clearly established. Aliases include Eric Lensherr and Magnus Eisenhardt: either could be his real name, as all relevant records have been destroyed, we believe by Magneto himself.
KNOWN RELATIVES
Magda Eisenhardt: Wife, dead (circumstances of death not known).
Wanda Maximoff: Daughter, and Pietro Maximoff, son. Both dead (see: Operation Red Hot)
Lorna Dane: Possibly another daughter. Was incarcerated at Alcatraz, but died while trying to escape. Officers were disciplined: her use as a bargaining counter against Magneto might have been considerable.
COMMENTSMagneto is clearly the biggest threat we currently face. Attempts to capture or kill him using “Minimum-metal” Exonim units of Mark-IV and V types have all failed, although we believe that the Baton Rouge ambush left him wounded.
I think our mistake in the early operations was in viewing Magneto purely and simply as a terrorist. He actually has a formidable strategic mind and a radical agenda which goes beyond simple resistance or protest. He organized two extremely successful mutant terrorist cadres that we know of (see: Brotherhood, Acolytes) and also provided logistical and intelligence support for the Mutant Liberation Front. His attempt to reverse the Earth’s magnetic poles would have succeeded if it hadn’t been for the intervention of Tony Stark and Reed Richards, whose field valence manipulators are still running full-time to prevent a repetition of that crisis.
The truth is – and please don’t take this as any kind of an endorsement – Magneto is an idealist. In other circumstances, if we hadn’t been able to roll out the Exonim program when we did to cull mutant numbers so effectively, it’s possible that he might have mobilized them into a terrifyingly potent force. Subject Simon Hall admitted under interrogation that Magneto had plans to found a mutant republic on Genosha. I leave you to imagine the implications of that, in light of the invaluable technical support that the Genoshan magistrates have provided to our own people.
Bottom line: even if the opportunity of taking Magneto alive were to arise, I’d advise against it. I wouldn’t lower the threat assessment on his file until I’d seen him not just killed but ground into fine powder and scattered over the Eastern seaboard.

Thoughts on Axis/Magneto & Marvel Events in general.

I’m notreally really reading Axis but it does have tie-ins with some of the few marvel books on my pull-list so I get the gist of the story that way, but there’s something that kinda bothered me as I read Magneto #11.

The entire issue did a better job of setting up Magneto’s team (which is pretty important to the main storyline) than Axis has actually done itself. I know that an entire issue can’t be devoted to one character’s narrative and I know that having that it detailed in that character’s solo is a pretty good idea but when that character’s narrative is important in ushering story elements that will be present throughout the event, then I think maybe there should be a page or 3 dedicated to that character’s narrative to properly show their motivation and how it’s going to impact the rest of the event. 

This happened last month too. Magneto #10 had a way better overall narrative for Axis than the actual first Axis issue. Things happen in the main event but the stories are in the tie-ins and that’s just ass-backwards to me. The main event should be the entree and the tie-ins should be the appetizers not the other way around.

I think Marvel truly needs to re-evaluate how they go about creating the structure for their big events. Because of lot of them these past few years have just been done rather poorly. AvX is another example of how the tie-ins were more interesting and engaging than the actual main event. Gillen’s Uncanny X-Men was on fire and even some of that bullshit New Avengers stuff with Iron Fist/Fongi/Hope/Spider-Man was pretty good, and AvX was supposedly in the making for 2 years. What the hell?

It’s one thing for the readership to be over-saturated with big, game changing, crossover events but to have those events to be increasingly poorly done? That’s just ridiculous.  I know I’m asking for too much but I really hope that whatever this All-New Secret Wars crap is is done better than these last few events.

Mike Carey on Magneto and Rogue.

verrufen:

"In the past, Rogue (Savage Land arc) was attracted to Magneto but ultimately repulsed by his ability to kill in cold blood and withdrew from any relationship with him. Both acknowledged an erotic or romantic charge between them, but as far as we know they didn’t act on it.

Magneto has done…

Love Mike Carey!! :-)

*Jaw Drop*

Well that certainly explains a lottttt. After reading this blurb I wish Mike Carey HAD actually addressed the trial of Gambit, since Rogue was apparently acting on her attraction to Magneto out of false pretenses. She doomed any possibility of Romy indefinitely. Jeeez. Poor Remy! I’m kinda mad at Rogue now…I hope in the future that she comprehends just how badly she hurt him by using his own “when it comes to love, reasons for and reasons against should just fall away” speech to justify hopping into bed with the same man who wrecked their relationship. Also, someone desperately needs to mail copies of this to the writers currently in charge of these characters so they understand where they’re coming from :p

That’s not what MC said or implied in his Facebook reply (i.e the op). Even though Rogue wasn’t always good GF that doesn’t mean that she was the one who solely doomed her relationship with Gambit, hell she’s not even the one majorly responsible.

*I’m going to switch to a more generic  usage of *you* right now because I don’t want to make it seem like I’m ganging up on you or anything.* 

It amazes me how far people will go to make Romy’s end Rogue’s fault even though she waited for him to come back, believed he would come back to the X-Men after Apocalypse was defeated.  After she woke up from her coma she decided to get away from everyone to deal with her personal drama - which was totally reasonable - and that pretty much put the ever-present romy question on hold until she figured out what she wanted. Which she did btw. After spending all that time being forced to relive important moments from her past (including her relationships) and gaining control over her powers, Rogue decided that she wasn’t ready to restart anything with Gambit but was willing and hoping they could remain close friends.

That never meant that she wasn’t open to the possibility of a new romance, just that she wasn’t ready to retread and rehash what she had with Gambit.

What Rogue had with Magneto was and still is independent of her reasons for not getting together with Gambit. Remember, Magneto wasn’t even on Utopia until much later and even then it took AoX for Rogue to act on her feelings for Magneto. She didn’t dump Gambit (which they were already broken up) for Magneto, like many people like to claim, she just decided to give into her attraction for another person.

Now, you can blame Rogue for not treating Gambit right at times during their relationship but you can’t blame her for Gambit screwing up their relationship which he has done numerous times, the last of which was going to apocalypse to join his cause and then leaving to join sinister/the marauders after that. No one did more damage to their relationship than Gambit and let’s be really really honest about that.  Everything from Bella Donna to the Mutant Massacre to his blindness to Foxx to Apocalypse has been on him and him alone. If he’s *hurt* by Rogue’s decision that has nothing to do with him then he needs to get over it because he has had plenty of ladies after Rogue and he has no right to cry foul on anything.

What’s going on?

Peter David (writer of All New X-Factor) announced that the series will be cancelled at issue #20 because sales are low. (source) There are a great deal of people who adore this comic, and we want to share that awesome with everyone else. This is a campaign to lift that cancellation and try to renew the series.

What is being done?

If you care about All New X-Factor as much as we do, we urge you to take action. We are planning on setting up times to attempt to get #SaveANXF trending on Twitter to introduce the series to a wider audience. There are 6 issues left until the series is scheduled to come to an end. If we can raise sales and get Marvel’s attention, perhaps we can save it - or at least increase the possibility of the characters sticking around. We would also like to propose an “All New X-Factor Week” at some point in the near future; participation is encouraged to further spread the word.

How can I help?

If you can think of anything else, let us know! We want as many people to be involved as possible. Follow us on twitter: @saveanxf. Spread the news. Reblog/retweet. Most importantly, buy All New X-Factor.

Thank you for your support!
