  1. In your discussion about character identity and race Magneto was brought up as one that had a background that required him to be white because he was Holocaust survivor. It was kind of touched on,but I think it is quite easy to create a character based in the 20th century with the same motivations as original Magneto.

    My pitch is that Magneto is a child survivor of the Rhowanda Genocide. He is able to emigrates to the United States hoping to escape the prejudice of his home country and ends up in late 90’s Baltimore (or LA, but Marvel is obsessed with the east coast). Throw Xavier somewhere in there and you can create a character that would have a very similar core and backstory to the original Magneto.

    1. That’s exactly what I was pointing to, but couldn’t get all the way there, for some reason. But, yes, I think a more modern update of Magneto could be created with little problem. Perhaps, if Fox is bold enough, it should be the way to go should a new generation of X-films be made in the future. I actually wonder if something like that would be easier to accomplish (and be accepted) in film or in the comics; it’s hard to know which audience is more discerning.
