Dubbed the “Master of Magnetism,” Magneto experienced a tumultuous upbringing that led the young mutant to become obsessively protective of his people’s rights, knowing that any day society could turn on them. But what started as a noble cause quickly morphed into something more sinister, as Magneto began to believe that mutants should rule over humans. Though usually at odds with Earth’s Super Heroes, Magneto has come to mankind’s aid on multiple occasions, showing there is still hope for this tragic figure…
Magneto (Dawn of X) is the first release in an upcoming new line featuring more characters from the Dawn of X comics series. The scene for this statue takes place after the events of House of X/Powers of X, in which a united Professor Xavier and Magneto would create a home for their people on the island nation of Krakoa. Here, the Master of Magnetism is seen standing within a crushed Sentinel base amidst dense foliage with a pensive look upon his face as he cradles a flower of Krakoa within a Sentinel eyeball using his powers.
Each of these flowers harnesses a pharmaceutical power unique to its makeup, providing the mutants with the leverage they need to hold humanity in their thrall. While organically produced, the mutants are responsible for distribution. Only nations that recognise Krakoa’s sovereignty would be able to legally trade and receive them. Magneto’s only priority has been the preservation of the mutant race. And as the formation of a mutant nation-state is now realised, Magneto uses his powers to step upwards and out of the wreckage. Mutantkind, all of it, is now committed to a single vision.
The XM Team wanted to accommodate collectors who would like to feature Magneto either with or without his helmet, and so this release comes with head switch-outs featuring Magneto with two portraits. It also comes with four right arm switch-outs, one featuring Magneto with a balled fist, another featuring him reaching out for an off-screen display of his powers, the third with Magneto holding on to his helmet and the last featuring him using his powers to cradle a flower of Krakoa within a Sentinel eyeball.
