Main article: Magneto

His powers of magnetism still powerful, but his mastery of them broken, Magneto fights to protect new mutants from a world that hates and fears them. With control of his powers weakened, he uses the foresight and scheming developed in his years of villainy to defend mutant rights, though his checkered past makes it difficult for his companions to trust him.
