AvX has been going strong and taken over anything with an A or X in its title, and Uncanny X-Men has both. How has this affected the title? For the Major Spoilers look, take the jump.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the upcoming Magneto: Not a Hero #1 by the team of Skottie Young and Clay Mann.
In case you didn’t figure it out by now, Magneto is not a hero, and Marvel has a four-issue mini-series on the way that spells it out for you.
With the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie featuring a young Magneto, I decided it was time to tackle his origin story, for behind the helm of the Master of Magnetism was, at one time, a boy. This boy experienced the Holocaust first hand, and it would shape the man he would become. Take the jump and find out if this blend of factual history, and fictional characters is worth your time.
As A.I.M. bee keepers extort money from San Francisco in order to prevent a earthquake, Magneto is hounded to make over his image. Will the City by the Bay fall into the sea? Will the Master of Magnetism bend to the will of a Publicist?
Matthew Vaughn may have found his Magneto for the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie. The Hollywood Reporter has Michael Fassbender donning the red and purple duds and using his power to shape the future of the X-Men universe.
Fassbender’s big Hollywood break came with a key turn in “Inglourious Basterds,” where he played Canadian spy Archie Hicox. He has a role in “Jonah Hex,” which opens tomorrow, and stars in Neil Marshall’s Roman action movie “Centurion,” which opens in August.
It’s all in early negotiations, but we can probably expect an answer before the San Diego Comic-Con arrives, as I’m sure Marvel and everyone else will be hyping the heck out of this movie.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last four years of running Major Spoilers it is this; fans like their comic books, but they seem to like merchandise even more.Â And while the comic book lover in your life may not need a life sized prop replica of Magneto’s helmet, chances are if they are a fan of Marvel and the X-Men, they’ll be more than happy to display a life sized prop replica of Magneto’s helmet on their shelf, desk, or they might even wear it down the street to pick up the ladies.
The helmet is from Sideshow Collectibles, and will set you back $350.
Sometimes going with the simple lines and design works much better than filling a face with every single wrinkle in the world.Â Case in point, Stanly Dan (if that is his real name) draws a mighty cute Magneto that makes you want pick him up and give him a snuggle, instead of running in fear from the mutant.

Obsessed With Film is also reporting the Magneto movie will take place in the time period of the current X-Men films and may remind many viewers of Boys From Brazil.

David Goyer is certainly in the news alot lately. First parting ways with the Flash, then all the gossip about the non-superhero movie SuperMax, and finally today Variety is reporting Goyer will direct “Magneto”, a spin-off movie from 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios.
The first film will be an origin story with Magneto hunting down Nazi war criminals who tortured him, and coming to grips with his mutant abilities. Since it is a prequel to the X-films, Ian McKellen’s involvement is expected to be limited.
Goyer is developing the script that was written by Sheldon Turner.
