  Magneto (comics)
Magneto (alias '''Erik Magnus Lehnsherr''') is a mutant in the Marvel Comics universe.
Magneto found himself allied with Professor Xavier and the X-Men when a group of heroes and villains were abducted by the Beyonder, a nearly omnipotent yet frustratingly short-sighted being, to an alien world to participate in the Secret Wars.
Magneto was one of the many mutants to lose their powers, and was left a broken man. Magneto has since arisen to criticise his son, Quicksilver, for his quest to restore mutant powers.

Magneto claimed citizenship in the Mutant nation, not because of where he was born, but because of his particular genetic make-up which is unique to mutants.
Just before the Court was to announce its decision--which, Magneto knew was to be a guilty verdict and death sentence, because Captain Marvel eavesdropped on the judges' post-decision celebration--Magneto used a mechanism in his helmet to dominate the mind of the chief judge and order him to grant the defense motion challenging jurisdiction.
Magneto did this, because he feared that a verdict against him would cause the Mutants to revolt against humanity in a bloody war.

 Magneto (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Characterizations of Magneto have varied through the years, from supervillain to anti-hero to even hero, but he is most often shown as an uncompromising militant and has engaged in acts of terrorism when he felt it was for the benefit of mutantkind.
Magneto's daughter Wanda suffers a mental breakdown over the loss of her children and starts to warp reality in order to recreate them, inadvertently resulting in random attacks on the Avengers, until Doctor Strange puts her in a coma.

 The religion of Magneto (Erik Magnus Lehnsherr)
Magneto and Magda are the parents of twins Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, better known as the mutant superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
Magneto was for a brief time overtly identified as a Gypsy (or "Roma" or "Sinte") in comics beginning in 1992, but these stories about the character's ethnic origin were regarded by Marvel writers and editors as an intentional retcon crafted for the purpose of removing Magneto's Jewish ethnicity.
Magneto has never appeared to believe that he is actually a messenger from God, but he has rarely dissuaded followers from looking to him as a prophet or a messenger of the ultimate truth for mutants.

 Talk:Magneto (comics)
Books about comic books, that DK Ultimate Guide to the X-Men, articles in print that offer analysis about the character, interviews with creators, documentaries from X-Men DVDs and television (quite a few comics documentaries have been made), and so forth can all be cited in order to give a fuller picture of the character.
There's an index of X-Men comics at TheXAxis.com that yields several historical details (for one, Magneto was so one-dimensional when he debuted that even his background with Xavier didn't exist yet).
Magneto is very specific about it -- he says he denied who he was, everything he family died for, when he took the false identity of "Erik Lehnsherr the Sinte." It's a very strong statement -- to say, "I denied who I was..." when he took the name and false ethnicity.

 rec.arts.comics.marvel.xbooks FAQ: 6/8
Magneto takes his turn--Doom describes what he sees, "...after the ignoble defeat of the Nazis in Germany, you and the woman Magda you rescued, fled the prison camp Auschwitz, in Poland." Doom confirms that Magnus and Magda "fled" or escaped Auschwitz before liberation and after the Gypsy camp was murdered.
Basically, Magneto needed the fake Sinte identity to have a better chance of success on his search for Magda (who *was* a Gypsy) after she had run away from him.
Magneto lost his family in a Nazi death camp, persecuted just because they were Jewish for the crime of being 'different.' Fifty-odd years later...

The relationship between the two (in both the comics and the films) is almost Shakespearian in nature.
I personally think that apart from Magneto, the Dark Phoenix is a brilliant character more than Professor X. What really worked in the comics but wasnt explored in the films is Cyclops, the leader of the X Men, why was he made into a wimp in the films?
The guy kicked a lot of a** in the comics, and he was really believable as the leader.

Magneto agreed to lead the X-Men and care for the New Mutants.
It was in these later years that the X-men faced some of thier greatest threats: Magneto (leading a band of followers who believe he's Jesus or something), the Phalanx, Mr.Sinister, Stryfe's Legacy Virus, and more recently, Onslaught (The Professor's evil-side), Bastion and his Prime Sentinals, and Cerebro, thier own mutant-detecting device given life.

I mean, he could have been completely not there and it wouldn't have changed the X-Men any, and for that matter there's little different that would have happened with the New Mutants if someone else had become their teacher.
However, the characterization of the New Mutants is spot-on and doesn't suffer in the slightest for the introduction of the new girl (the same, sadly, cannot be said for Kitty Pryde, whose brief appearance is marred by uncharacteristic dorkiness.) And the new character may be larger than life, but she's nonetheless very real.
