MAGNETO (ERIK LENSHERR)
EARTH-616

In ‘AVX: VS’ (2012) #1, “The Invincible Iron Man vs Magneto,” Magneto performs an energy projection feat. During the fight, Magneto siphons the interplanetary magnetic field of the heliosphere.

How much energy projection does it take for Magneto to siphon the heliosphere?

MAGNETO SIPHONED THE MAGNETIC FIELD OF THE HELIOSPHERE IN ORDER TO COUNTER IRON MAN’S INTERPLANETARY ABSORPTION OF NEARBY PLANETS’ MAGNETIC FIELDS WITH THE BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR.

MAGNETO GENERATED 3 MICRO GAUSS OF MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTH, SIPHONING THE MAGNETIC FIELD OF THE HELIOSPHERE.

Magneto counters Iron Man‘s interplanetary absorption of the interplanetary magnetic field with the Bleeding Edge Armor. Since Magneto uses the power of the sun we can assume it is the heliosphere.

We will use the heliosphere magnetic field strength to rate Magneto’s energy projection.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

According to The Heliosphere, Sol’s heliosphere has a magnetic field strength of 0.3 nanoTesla.

Let’s convert it in Gauss. One Gauss = 10^4 Tesla.

Magnetic Field = 0.3 nanoTesla = 0.3 * 10^-9 * 10^4 = 3 microGauss.

ENERGY PROJECTION

Magneto siphoned the energy of Sol’s heliosphere in order to counter Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge interplanetary energy absorption.

Magneto generated 3 microGauss of energy. Magneto had to generate a Solar System Level of Energy Projection in order to siphon the magnetic field of the heliosphere.

00s THOR STORYLINES RANKED BEST TO WORST

STAR RATINGS:

Best: 5 to 4.5 stars.

Good: 4 to 3 stars.

Bad: 2.5 to 2 stars.

Worst: 1.5 to 0 stars.

BEST: “Thor Disassembled: Ragnarok.” (2004).

Collects ‘Thor’ #80-85.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

“Thor Disassembled: Ragnarok” is Michael Avon Oerming and Daniel Berman’s run on ‘Thor’ in 2004 on the eve of “Avengers: Disassembled”. As the Avengers team is torn apart by the threat of an out-of-control Scarlet Witch, Thor and Asgard are destroyed by Ragnarok, where Loki has raised an army and destroyed Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer, in order to destroy and to rule Asgard.

You will notice that the lettering is very traditional and the storyline plays like a classic Norse/mythological story in the first three issues. The last three issues bring together the best elements of Thor lore and leverage Thor’s superheroism on Earth in order to solve the crisis. Perhaps one of the most significant events in the “Avengers: Disassembled” crossover event as it shakes up the Thor and Asgard status-quo that results in a significant power-up for the God of Thunder.

There are lots of dialogue, descriptions and splash action pages. There is a sense of seriousness and of the belief that the warriors are seeking glory. The first three issues are mostly exposition and descriptions of Loki’s conquests, the destruction he caused and the casualties on Thor’s army and allies. The bulk of the action occurs in the last three issues. Thor manages to solve the crisis at great personal cost and ascends to a higher level of magical power. In some sense, Thor repeats All-Father Odin’s actions and also manages to fulfill his destiny. What works best is that here, Thor, represents the best of both God and man and ends up saving Asgard.

This storyline is definitely very reverent of Norse religion though at the same time, it plays up Thor’s godhood and comments heavily on the somber path of destruction created by Loki across Asgard. This is definitely a must-read for Thor fans.

BEST: ‘Thor: Son Of Asgard’. (2004).

Collects ‘Thor: Son of Asgard’ #1-12.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

C.B. Cebulski and Greg Tocchini’s 2004 on Thor, was a prequel series titled ‘Thor: Son of Asgard’. The series was a new origin story about Thor’s early years to Thor becoming worthy. The series originally set as a six-issue series before popular demand turned it into a 12-issue series. The series looks at the changes to Balder’s origin and how he received his enchanted sword in the six-issue “Warriors Teen” storyline, Lady Sif’s warrior training in the three-issue “Enchanted” storyline, and Thor finally lifting Mjolnir in the three-issue “Worthy” storyline.

‘Thor: Son Of Asgard’ succeeds as a work of comic book mythology. Asgard appears as a place of fantastic magic where locales change as suddenly as extreme climate conditions. The series set the foundation for the renewed interest in Thor and helped define why the character is not so much a god, as he is a hero. It is Thor’s heroism that shines and in some ways, he supplants Odin’s omniscience in order to finally become worthy.

One of the typical Marvel books where heroes are presented with hubris: Thor’s warrior and son pride gets him into trouble as he constantly tries to prove himself to Odin, Lady Sif proves to be jealous which causes an initial rift with Thor – something that is resolved at the end of the “Enchanted” storyline -, Odin’s reliance on his omniscience blinds him on matters of the heart. It would seem Balder does not suffer from these defects and appears to balance rationality, warrior spirit, strategy and love.

This is certainly a worthy addition to your Thor collection, with a blend of adventure, action, magic, suspense, romance and the threat of war.

GOOD: Thor JOE Straczynksi and Olivier Coipel Years (2007 to 2009).

Collects ‘Thor’ #1-12.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Joe Straczynski’s 2007 run on ‘Thor’ attempted to re-define the character. A costume re-design, a completely new setting in Oklahoma with a move to restoring Asgard and its people dead after Ragnarok and a prelude to the Marvel Civil War. Straczynski presents to us a Thor that does not smile, that is powered by the faith of humans and who seeks to find his path on Earth. It is not Thor the God of Thunder that is emphasized, but Thor the superhero.

In a battle against Iron Man, Thor no longer holds back. His power unleashes the fury of the elements on Iron Man who, defeated, opts to grant Thor and Asgard diplomatic immunity in Oklahoma. The pacing of the stories is quite slow and much of the plot points are involved with politics, Balder’s new status, and Asgard’s awkward relationship with Earth. Though the pacing is slow, it does work when concerned with Loki’s dark and evil plan to oust Thor out of Asgard in issues #7-12.

Though the art is gorgeous and the writing tight, the storyline begs the question whether we needed the new Thor rebirth. Thor works best as space opera, as the cream of Marvel’s crop that does not shy against showing unrelenting power. Though this version of Thor exemplifies these aspects, it lacks in heart and humanity, as many of the characters are not explored, and the plot points do not move forward at a satisfying pace. It appears, here, that Thor has not fully grown into his role as King of Asgard and his inexperience is clouding his judgment.

Straczynski’s run did succeed in re-defining ‘Thor’ though the run did not succeed in producing any lasting effects in contribution to Thor’s storyline. There may be too much of a parallel with DC’s Superman.

GOOD: ‘THOR: AGES OF THUNDER’ (2008).

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Thor: Ages of Thunder’ is part of a delving into Thor’s past during Straczynski’s run as the God of Thunder attempts to locate the missing Asgardians.

Thor’s history with the Frost Giants is well-documented in Norse mythology. In the trade paperback, thanks to Thor’s power and heroism, Asgard has just won Ragnarok against the Frost Giants. While the Asgardians celebrate in revelry, Thor retreats to his quarters with the golden apples, the source of the Asgardians’ immortality. Here, Thor is presented as distant, cold and a womanizer.

What makes this comic work is the back-story presented on Enchantress. The story explains some of the mishaps that befall Enchantress and Thor’s heroism. Odin is depicted as powerless and ineffectual, different from his classic omniscient and omnipotent showings. At the same time, there is a growing rift between Odin and Thor that bodes evil. Finally, the lack of powerful and strong female heroines show a lack of depth. Enchantress is given very little dialogue and is depicted as the perfect woman though a damsel in distress.

Though the art is gorgeous and the pacing good, the storyline lacks depth though it makes important additions to Thor’s mythos such as a backstory on Enchantress and her important role in the Asgardian pantheon. The comic plays mostly as filler and does not add any significant development to Straczynski’s run in 2007.

BAD: ‘Thor: Blood Oath’. (2005).

Collects ‘Thor: Blood Oath’ #1-6.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

‘Thor: Blood Oath’ reads like a friendly adventure through the nine worlds. When the Warriors Three accidentally kill a Giant that had changed into a sea creature, Thor has a premonition and flies to Thingvellir to witness their judgment. Solidary with his brothers, Thor is sentenced by the Giants to retrieve some magical items over the Nine Worlds.

The series is full of jest, camaraderie, fun and action. Hercules makes a surprise appearance in issues #3 and #4 battling Thor in humiliation. The series continues from the Donald Blake story arcs and includes Thor as Donald Blake building his relationship with Jane Foster. In a sense, it is Thor’s connection to humanity that is shown.

Though ‘Thor: Blood Oath’ does not add anything new to Thor’s story or mythology, it is a nice addition to Thor comics.

Super Power Explained: Is Magneto’s Mastery Of Magnetism Stellar or Solar System?

SUPER POWER

In 'X-Men' (1978) #112, Magneto defeats Phoenix and Wolverine.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

Magneto is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe. He is an enemy of the X-Men and an enemy of humanity. Magneto has on multiple occasions, attempted to destroy the human race in order to champion the cause of mutants.

Magneto is known as the Master of Magnetism and an Omega Level mutant. What is Magneto’s super power called Magnetism?

Read on!

Magnetokinesis: Magneto has comprehensive control over all forms of magnetism and utilizes that control to manipulate any metal and achieve a variety of effects. He recently proved able to effectively hold together the headless form of a Celestial. Magneto can manipulate an entire planet’s electromagnetic field and once even pulled back the giant metallic ‘bullet’ where Kitty Pryde was trapped inside, which was at least a few light-years away from Earth, though these are tasks that require great effort on his part. Magneto’s power is comparable with Phoenix’s, he has harnessed magnetism to stop armies, raise islands from ocean floors, move mountains, change the course of rivers, and threaten to devastate the world with floods and earthquakes.

Max Eisenhardt (Earth-616), Marvel Database

Because the Phoenix consumes stars, and Magneto matches her Power Level, it may seem that Magneto’s Power Level is Solar System+.

Let’s dig our comics!

‘X-MEN’ #112

In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, Magneto uses the super power of Magnetism to match the Phoenix’s cosmic power. Magneto shapes the Earth’s magnetosphere to create a “bottle-effect” around Phoenix, siphoning away her cosmic power.1 Magneto defeats Phoenix. However, this was a Phoenix that was growing in power.

During the ‘Dark Phoenix’ (1980) saga, Phoenix is driven insane by the fires of life and death, and causes the near extinction of the planet D’Bari by consuming its sun. This Power Level is definitely Solar System+.

In 'X-Men' (1980) #135, Phoenix consumes the D'Bari star causes the near extinction of the D'Bari.
In ‘X-Men’ (1980) #135, Phoenix consumes the D’Bari star causes the near extinction of the D’Bari. Photo/Marvel Comics.

At the end of the saga, Phoenix was killed by committing suicide. Of course, Phoenix ultimately resurrected and it turned out that the Phoenix is actually a cosmic firebird Multiversal in Power Level. Nevertheless, In ‘X-Men’ (1978) #112, Magneto was able to match the Phoenix’s power to be Solar System+ Power Level.

HOW POWERFUL IS MAGNETO?

In ‘Super Power Explained: How Smart Is Iron Man?’, we looked at Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge Armor. In ‘AvX: Vs’ #1, Magneto demonstrated he can siphon the magnetic power of nearby planets in the solar system. Magneto demonstrated at least a Stellar+ Power Level.

Since Magneto displayed Stellar+ power in his battle against Iron Man and was able to match Phoenix’s power, he is at least Stellar+ in Power Level. This indicates Magneto’s higher end power is Solar System+ since he can siphon the energy of nearby planets in the solar system and defeat Phoenix before she became Dark Phoenix.

As a result, Magneto’s Mastery of Magnetism extends to the solar system and is Solar System+ Level.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

IRON MAN INVENTED THE BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR

Iron Man is one of the smartest beings in the Marvel Universe. He regularly comes up with advanced technology, battle plans, scientific discoveries and yes… Iron Man Hulkbuster Armors. In order to estimate how intelligent Iron Man may be, let’s look at an Iron Man Armor upgrade: The Bleeding Edge Armor.

Read on!

Deemed as “bleeding edge,” this armor was created as Tony Stark essentially reinvented himself and the armor. Being called an upgrade to Extremis by Mr. Fantastic, Tony Stark corrected this comment by saying, “Nah – this is what comes next.” It was the first armor powered entirely by repulsor technology via Stark’s new device, the R.T. node.

[…]

This entire armor is kept inside Tony’s body until mentally commanded, at which point it manifests itself as the Iron Man Armor. The armor is made up of Nano-Machines that can now be commanded to turn into any type of structure upon Stark’s skin. For example, the nano-machines can turn into clothes, other armors, or even different beings completely, by having the nano-machines change their properties into whatever Stark wants them to be. It can also dissociate to transform into the Iron Man armor whenever Stark wishes. The armor and Stark’s own transhuman body are powered by the high-yield R.T. node mounted in his chest. The high output of the node has greatly augmented Stark’s intelligence and provided him with superhuman-level multitasking and learning capabilities.

“Iron Man Armor Model 37, Marvel Database

WHAT IS THE R.T. NODE?

The R.T. node is Iron Man’s discovery of fusion power, which is the process that powers the sun. In effect, Iron Man called the Bleeding Edge Armor a “man-made star.”1

Read on!

The Repulsor Tech node, as called on Earth-616, is a type of fusion power which derived from the Repulsor Technology of the Iron Man suit created by Tony Stark. It can be used as a source for clean energy as well as a powerful bomb, further modifications made along Rand Industries discarding the second possible application.

Arc Reactor, Marvel Database

Tony Stark discovered a source of clean energy as well as the potential to make powerful thermonuclear bombs.

HOW STRONG IS THE BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR?

IN ‘AVX:VS’ #1, IRON MAN IN BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR GOES TOE TO TOE WITH MAGNETO WHO WAS SIPHONING THE MAGNETIC ENERGY OF NEARBY PLANETS

In 'AvX: Vs' #1, Bleeding Edge Armor Iron Man goes toe to toe with Magneto.

The Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor is able to go toe to toe with an Omega Level mutant. Since Magneto was siphoning the magnetic energy of nearby planets, the Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor is able to withstand planetary to solar level power. This means it is at least Planetary in Power Level.

HOW SMART IS IRON MAN?

Iron Man’s IQ has been rated as super-genius, with the likes of beings like Thanos. Ben Sherlock from CBR.com writes:

Lex Luthor’s IQ is estimated to be 225, which is very impressive. Batman’s is 192, while Albert Einstein’s is thought to be between 160 and 180. So, Batman has a higher IQ than Albert Einstein, but Lex Luthor has a higher IQ than Batman. However, compare Lex’s to Tony Stark’s, which is 270, and it doesn’t seem so impressive. Tony’s IQ of 270 is extremely high. It makes him certifiably a “super genius” and puts him in the smartest 0.1% of the world’s population. 225 is still an incredible IQ score, but it’s not in the top 0.1% of the world.

“9 Questions About Lex Luthor, Answered,” CBR.com

Iron Man mastered the fusion process that powers the solar nuclear reactor. This is revolutionary in the sense that it promises to create clean energy that can power human industry. Iron Man built a Bleeding Edge Iron Man and is capable of at least creating a statistical model of the lifetime of a star from its beginning stages to supernova. Furthermore, Iron Man is able to apply theory to physics and engineering.

The Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor achieves two things: fusion power and nano-technology. Because Iron Man realized these feats of engineering, his creative intelligence is at least intelligent enough to process all the information on the Internet since this is the technology that connects the entirety of Marvel Earth.

In fact, in real-world terms, the orbiting space telescope GALEX that detects stellar and space objects produces about petabytes of data in its catalogs. This means Iron Man is able to process at least petabytes of data in order to create the Bleeding Edge Iron Man Armor.

The armor was a modular component system, instead of a suit. In fact, it was an exo-suit, that assembled around Iron Man’s armor. The Hulkbuster exo-suit was used when Hulk confronted Iron Man over his production of gamma bombs at Stane International. They met at a Stark plant.

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • Full Spectrum Scanalyzer with Adamantium-Tipped probe. [2]
  • Magnetic Railgun Launcher with explosive shells. [3]
  • Semi-Fluid Polymer Compound [4]: energy-absorbent compound that shot out and covered its target
  • EM Field Generator [5]: attracted a lightning bolt to short out Ultimo.
  • Gravimetric Field Generator [6]: canceled out the pull of the Earth’s gravity on whatever it was attached to.
  • Polybond Adhesive Compound [7]
  • Cryogenic Compact Module [8]
  • Magnetic Compact Module [9]: used magnetic field to polarize the target. Multiple modules could be used to polarize the target with mutually opposing states making the atoms of the target repel one another.
  • Hypodermic injector [10]
  • Microsurgery Equipment [11]
  • Shoulder Mounted Weapons [12]
  • Hulkbuster, it integrated a magno-hydraulic pseudo-musculature which provided greatly enhanced strength rated at 175 tons. Sensors were adapted to focus on detecting gamma radiation. It had impact-resistant carbon composite plating and an anchoring system.

One of the five armors that was activated by remote trigger when the son of Ho Yinsen was killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. The armor attacked Times Square. The Avengers attempted to take the armor down but could not succeed. Realizing it was triggered by his consciousness, Iron Man blasted himself with repulsors to take it down.

Iron Man used this armor to battle the Hulk which was a very brutal fight. It was heavily damaged by the collapse of Stark Tower; its remains were briefly possessed by the extradimensional demon named Zom. It was subsequently deactivated and was presumably salvaged by Stark Industries or S.H.I.E.L.D. later.

When Tony Stark undertook his reformed company Stark Resilient, a model of this armor was dismantled and melted.

When the Extremis virus was re-created by A.I.M. and sold around the world, Iron Man decided to hunt it down and destroy all the samples by any means.

Iron Man located one of the sample to a French catacomb where 13 superhumans were being created. Iron Man created the Heavy Duty armor in order to take down the superpowered individuals at the same time.

Later, Iron Man faced Hulk with the Heavy Duty Hulkbuster armor. Though Iron Man used all his arsenal, he was not successful and Hulk turned it into scrap.

The Hulkbuster Armor was next used by Iron Man when Captain Marvel rallied the Avengers to capture Bruce Banner. Due to his possession by the One Below All, the Hulk managed to easily overpower the team. The Hulkbuster’s repulsor beams had little effect on the Hulk, and the armor suffered critical manage with a single blow. After the Hulk tore off the armor’s arms, the suit suffered a cascading failure. Tony had to use the armor’s manual release to activate its ejection system. As soon as Tony ejected out of the armor using its detached helmet for propulsion, the armor exploded.
