Get a load of the stodgy old professor scolding one of his misbehaving students. These images are SO inappropriate for the school that we will have to paint one for my pad. Just wait until Prof finds out who is really under that helmet…
Magneto’s had a lot of interpretations by different authors over the years. To some writers, he is a victim of the Nazi death camps of the 1940s. In these stories he is painted more sympathetically, as a man who has been at the bad end of racial hate, defending his newly emerging species from that same hate. We like that Magneto, even if his arrogance always trips him up.
Other times, he’s just a kill-crazy power-tripping egomaniacal jackass. That’s how Grant Morrison paints him in New X-Men anyway.
