The Amalgam Comics version of Magneto is a fictional superhero in that continuity. His first appeared was in "Magneto and the Magnetic Men #1", but his metafictional debut in Amalgam Comics continuity was "The Brotherhood of Mutants #1".

Magneto is the most powerful mutant in the Amalgam Comics universe. He was the leader of the Brotherhood of Mutants and Magnetic Men. In the saga "Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour", Magneto leads the team of heroes to attack Thanoseid and Doctor Doomsday.

This character is a combination of Marvel Comics' character of the same name and DC Comics' Will Magnus.

Fictional character biography

His mutant powers manifested in his teens, making his brother Will Magnus hate and fear him.

Assuming the identity of Magneto, Erik formed a team of fellow super-powered mutants known as The Brotherhood of Mutants.

The rivalry between the Magnus brothers reached a fatal crossroads when Will's Sentinel robots murdered the members of the Brotherhood, except Magneto.

In their memory, Erik used his awesome magnetic might to create the Uncanny Magnetic Men (a band of robots designed to fight for the mutant cause and against the Sentinels).

Magneto created the super-computer known as Cerebro in order to locate mutants and help them. A strong rivalry exists between Magneto and Mister X (leader of JLX).

Magnetic Men

This band of robots are the combination of Metal Men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

Made in the image of Brotherhood of mutants, the members are:
*Cobalt (Marvel's Mastermind and DC's Gold): His secret identity is Lucius Richmond (Lucius Fox & Kyle Richmond). Seething with radioactivity, Cobalt is the Magnetic Men's energy power-house. With his haughty manner and regal bearing, he commands attention and respect in Magneto's own image, and is the natural leader when "The Master of Magnetism" himself is separated from the cybernetic crew. When he thinks no one is watching, the haughty Cobalt enjoys watching television. The others are beginning to get suspicious, especially when Cobalt follows up orders with the phrase, "Make it so".
*Nickel (Marvel's Quicksilver and DC's Mercury): His human identity is the photographer Lance Vale (Vicki Vale & Lance Bannon). He seems to move at the speed of light, but that's just the effect of the sun's rays glinting off sleek metal as speeding Nickel whizzes by! The ductile daredevil is also the Magnetic Men's hotheaded whiz kid, ever impatient to use his brillance as well as his brawn to battle enemies. He was once challenged to a race by Mercury of the JLX. Nickel found the little mutant so annoying that he tripped the brat with a quickly morph-stended foot and declared himself the winner.
*Antimony (Marvel's Scarlet Witch and DC's Platinum): Her human form is the supermodel Debbie Walker (Debbi & Patsy Walker). An aloof beauty whose circuits never overheat, her arms form unbreakable blades. With an indestructible Diamagnetic casing, the Magnetic Woman's cold body is as invulnerable to physical attack as her seemingly cold heart is from emotional assault. More than any of his Magnetic Men, Erik Magnus finds himself emotionally drawn to Antimony as the child he never had.
*Bismuth (Marvel's Toad and DC's Tin): His human identity is Snapper Jones (Snapper Carr & Rick Jones). The youngest member of the Magnetic Men. Bismuth has the ability to throw toxic punches which corrodes an opponent’s circuitry but also leaves him physically brittle and prone to lose pieces of himself in battle. Like Antimony, Bismuth is also Diamagnetic.
*Iron (Marvel's Unus and DC's Iron): John Henry Steel is his secret identity. The first and most headstrong of Magneto's creations, the impetuous Iron always charges willingly into battle. He possesses an attack-repelling magnetic force field that renders him nearly untouchable. With simple enthusiasm and solid style, Iron is the mechanical heart of the Magnetic Men.
*Mister Mastermind (Marvel's Mastermind and DC's Mister Mind): This metamutant is the assistant, and often conscience, of Erik Magnus. Possessed of the power of creating illusions, Mister Mastermind was responsible for the Magnetic Men's human-looking alter ego's.
