Magnetism: Takes you down, hoists you up

Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appears in The X-Men #1 (cover-dated Sept. 1963) as the archenemy of the X-Men. So, Magneto is the “evil bad guy” in the X-Men movies (and of course, in the comics) — or at least in the first one and I think briefly, the second.

But he means well. That’s important. No random craziness. He knows what he wants and has an intended goal.

Magnetism — his personal beat — disrupts engines and technology. Makes the world behave in unexpected way. Sort of like our current world. Magneto struck me as an intelligent, thoughtful sort of guy.

I say lets elect him. Make him president. He’ll be unexpected in a Marvel Comics kind of way, but being an intelligent fellow, his behavior will have something we “other people” will regard as “motivated.” That’s gotta be worth something, right?

  1. Sorry to burst the Bubble… Magneto (aka Erich Lensherr) was a German born Jew who is also a mutant human which i think rules him out as President on two counts??

    Hey – there’s a thought… can we find a qualified Doctor who can state definitively Trump is a mutant and therefore not eligible??

    As a side note – in the last 2 months Australia has found out that 7 elected government politicians could be considered as, or actually are, citizens of countries other than Australia, which according to our constitution renders then ineligible for election. Can we get a birther conspiracy up for Trump? (Apparently you can be a citizen of another country if your parent(s) were born overseas in some cases!)
