Readers of our blog must now be familiar with the fact that my son and I are big fans of Marvel. After watching all the live action films we are now going through the Wolverine and the X-Men tv show.
One must have figure that we were missing is Magneto, a powerful mutant with the ability to generate and control magnetism, Magneto has been the X-Men's most prominent enemy ever since his first appearance. In his early appearances, his motives were bent on megalomania, but Marvel have since fleshed out his character and origin, revealing him to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor whose actions are driven by the purpose of protecting the mutant race from suffering a similar fate. His role in comics have varied from supervillain to anti-hero to even hero.
The other figure I got my son is Mystique, the mutant shapeshifter whose natural appearance includes her blue skin and yellow eyes. From all the films, Mystique is the character that my son loved the most. Probably due to Rebecca Romijn.
