Holocaust survivor and mutant supremacist super-genius Max Eisenhardt, A.K.A. Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, befriended Charles Xavier in Israel decades ago and shared ideas about how to liberate mutantkind from the oppressiveness of human governments. After thwarting a HYDRA  attempt to recover hidden Nazi gold, Lehnsherr and Xavier realized that Xavier's dream of co-existence between mutants and humans was incompatible with Lehnsherr's belief that someday mutants should dominate humanity, so they parted ways. Years later, Lehnsherr tried to take over the Cape Citadel missile base using the name Magneto, but he was defeated by Xavier's mutant superhero team, the X-Men. Realizing that he would need a team of his own if he were to be the victor in his ideological war with Xavier, Magneto formed the Brotherhood of (Evil) Mutants.


Magneto has a red-and-purple helmet that protects him from psiconic attack, a red shirt with a purple-and-white magnet insignia, purple gloves, a purple-and-gray collar, a purple cape, purple shorts, and red pants.
