Erik M. Lehnsherr, also known as Magneto, is one of the world's most powerful mutants and the X-Men's most dangerous foe. His incredible ability to manipulate the earth's magnetic fields allows him to control all forms of metal by using his mind. Unlike Charles Xavier who dreams of peaceful co-existence between normal humans and mutants, Erik believes the only way he can protect his fellow mutants from persecution is by conquering the earth. Erik has formed the Brotherhood of Mutants that he now leads in his quest for world domination for homo superior. The only ones that can stand in their way are the X-Men.
While the Brotherhood fought the X-Men, Magneto built Asteroid M as a haven for mutants. He located the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak and used it to greatly enhance a mutant's abilities. He then pitted the Brotherhood against the X-Men to see who was stronger, then captured the winner. However, Mystique, who had lost, was resentful and betrayed him. The "losers" found Asteroid M and destroyed it.
He arranged so that the existence of mutants would be made public in a large fight against a large Sentinel robot. However, Mystique released his daughter who nearly killed him by stopping his powers. Luckily, Quicksilver saved him at the last second making it appear as though he had died.
However, he was apparently killed then turned into a Horseman of Apocalypse along with Xavier, Mystique, and Storm. He was eventually saved by the Brotherhood, the Acolytes, and the X-Men then helped by his two children. When Xavier read Apocalypse's mind, he saw that Magneto was an ally of the X-Men.
