Storyline

They the path to hell is paved with good intentions. That is never more true than it is with Magneto. The first stone on his path was not layed by him, but by a tyranical mad man called Adolf Hitler. Under Hitler's orders, Erik witnessed his parents murder at the hands of Nazi's before being carted off to Auschwiz Death Camp were he was forced to operate the gas chambers were so many people were sent to their deaths.

After the war ended, Erik married a gypsy girl he had met in the camp named Magda. With her, he hoped to live of peaceful life, of love and happiness. This was not to be.

Durning a fire, which trapped Magda and their daughter in the house, Erik first used his mutant abilites in an attempt to save their lives. However, due to his inexperiance and the interferance of human mob, he failed and their daughter died in the balze. Enraged, Erik slaughtered the mob in revenge. Magda left Erik afterward, terrifed of her husband. They never saw eachother again.

Many years later, Erik met someone who would further change his life, Charles Xavier, a fellow Mutant who helped him stop the Nazi war criminal Baron Wolfgang von Strucker from retreving a large amount of Nazi gold.

It was at this moment that Erik made a decision that would forever change his life, and that of the world, forever. Magnus, convinced that Xavier's dream of peacfuly co-existance between humans and mutants was just that, a dream.

Erik, fearing a second Holocaust, this of Mutant's, redubbed himself Magneto and formed the Brotherhood of Mutants to guide Mutant kind to a bright future, fear of human oppresors. No matter the cost.

The path to Hell is paved with good intentions, and Magneto is full of them.
