Professor X and Magneto


    Erik Lehnsherr, a survivor of Genocide first met Charles Xavier when the two were young men. The two new friends shared many debates about mutantkind’s place in the world. Fearing the judgment and hatred that he foresaw humanity bringing to bear against mutants, Erik ultimately abandoned Xavier, believing the professor’s views to be incompatible with his own. Erik became Magento: master of magnetism, archnemesis of the X-Men, and founder of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, a group dedicated to the “protection” of mutants using violence and other means. Xavier dedicated himself to a dream of peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants. With the foundation of the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, the visionary Professor X has educated many young students — among them the future members of the X-Men! © 2023 MARVEL
