- “Now I have some power to play with.”
- ― Magneto in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Magneto has a new moulded helmet to depict the iconic one from the comic books and is coloured red and purple to follow his suit. His face has grey bushy eyebrows, wrinkles, and is double-sided with serious and angry expressions. He also has a cape. His torso print features his collar, muscles against his suit, and red arms with purple hands. He has back printing depicting the back of the collar and the suit against his back. His hips are purple with red legs.
Magneto has the same head and helmet as the original variant. He also comes with white widow's peaked hair which is interchangeable with the helmet. He has a red cape instead of a purple one, the links of which are printed on the front of his purple torso. His torso is purple and depicts part of his neck and shirt, the outfit's cut on his body, and a white belt at the bottom. The back features the suit's cut on his back and the continuation of the belt. His arms are also purple with white hands, and his hips and legs are all purple.
His appearance in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is identical to that of his physical minifigure released in 2012.
He has the abilities to shoot metal balls, levitate, and magnetism.
Magneto, born Erik Lensherr, has powers to control any metal object on the planet. Magneto, unlike the X-Men (who want peace between mutants and humans), wants mutants to dominate the world, believing that humans are beneath them and have lost their right to rule. He was once a friend of Professor X, the leader of the X-Men, until he decided this and they parted their ways. His survival of the Holocaust and murder of his parents fuel his belief mutants are superior and didn't want mutants to suffer the same fate as the Jewish people.
He is the leader and founder of the Brotherhood of Mutants, which also includes Mystique, Juggernaut, Pyro, Toad, Mastermind, Blob and Sabretooth and is often pitted against the X-Men. Even though he is mostly a villain, there are occasions when he became a hero and teamed up with the X-Men to prevent the eradication of mutant kind. During his reformation from his villainous ways, he became Headmaster of Xavier's School to honour his old friend's wish to keep the school open and the X-Men operational. He has also founded the mutant island nation of Genosha.

Occasionally a hero but more often a villain, Magneto is one of the most powerful mutants on Earth. In order to protect mutants from oppression, he believes that they should rule over all of humanity, and he will stop at nothing to make his dream a reality.
