This Magneto figure is part of a 'Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' set. I wanted to make the original founding members based on the First Appearance of 'The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' in Uncanny X-Men #4 (although Magneto's first appearance without the rest of the team, of course, was in Uncanny X-Men #1), but with some liberties taken with their "looks". Magneto has always been one of my favorite characters, and I wanted to have my first custom of him show my awe for the character, and show him in a classic Magneto pose, using his powers (in this case, to fly). I thought that this bast figure was perfect. Everything that is not Dr.Manhattan was sculpted. I exaggerated certain features, like his eyebrows, because I wanted them to be clear from a distance when displayed in a room. As mentioned in a different figure discription from this set, I did touch up the paints a bit after these photos were taken. I hope that you guys feel like this, my first attempt at a Magneto and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants set does some justice to these amazing, Legendary characters.

Here is The Master of Magnetism the way he was meant to look. Pictures do not do this one justice enough. The very creative Davey Blaze has found the perfect base figure for Magneto! Anyone who loves Magneto or the X-Men should have a copy of this figure to represent him. With Toad as his jester, Magneto is a "KING" figure. The helmet wears very much like a crown. Davey knew to accentuate this look by putting horns over his forehead. And the pose is very majestic, floating effortlessly full of power. The thickly hairy eyebrows bring out his sunken glazed over eyes!! The artist again was intuitive enough to know not to put pupils in the open eyes. Not only does it give the figure a look of being bursting full of power. It also adds a look of him being ultra human or something more advanced than mere mortals. Again to be talking about the look on a custom figure's face is phenomenal! The other details on the figure are fantastic, as is the paint job! His musculature if perfect! A figure of supreme confidence? Again the pose is quite a godlike stance, open palms showing. He needs no weapons, he IS a weapon. Aloof, noble and majestic! But Magneto is not the elderly stay at home type of king. He is more in the Alexander the Great vein, recruiting powerful allies to his cause. The X-men movies show him doing this to great effect. Davey Blaze has re-imagined the Mutant King as a godlike figure to be revered. Great Job Again! Davey Blaze! Bravo!! This one is another masterpiece that at the same time reinvents and captures the original character perfectly!! Best Magneto I have ever seen.
