Héctor Magneto

Si lo que dijo Néstor ayer es cierto, Héctor Magneto tiene superpoderes.

Magneto (born Max Eisenhardt, also known as Magnus and Erik Lehnsherr) is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. A powerful mutant with the ability to generate and control magnetism, Magneto has been the X-Men's most prominent enemy ever since his first appearance. In his early appearances, his motives were bent on megalomania, but writers have since fleshed out his character and origin, revealing him to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor whose actions are driven by the purpose of protecting the mutant race from suffering a similar fate. His role in comics have varied from supervillain to anti-hero to even hero.

He was ranked number 1 by IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Villains list[8], was listed number 17 in Wizard's Top 100 Greatest Villains Ever list[9], and was ranked as the 9th Greatest Comic Book Character Ever in Wizard's list of the 200 Greatest Comic Book Characters of All Time, the second highest villain on that list.[10]

Magneto is a mutant with the power to generate and control magnetic fields, enabling him to achieve a wide range of effects.

His primary use of this power is the manipulation of ferrous metals. He is able to manipulate a very large quantity of metal at one time. He has levitated objects as heavy as a 30,000 ton nuclear submarine and has on more than one occasion used his power to move asteroids; the maximum amount of mass that he can manipulate at one time is unknown. He is able to manipulate a large number of individual metal objects simultaneously, and even to assemble complex machines using only his powers. Magneto can also manipulate paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials to some extent.

Another way in which he frequently uses his power is for the production of a personal shield or 'force field' which protects him from both metal projectiles and energy attacks. Magneto's personal shield is strong enough to protect him even from the detonation of a thermonuclear weapon; hence he is invulnerable to most harm when his personal shield is active. He can also survive in deep space when his personal shield is active, presumably using his powers to retain some amount of air around his body by which to breathe.

Magneto frequently employs his powers to levitate his own body and fly; his personal shield is usually active whenever he is levitating himself.

Because electricity and magnetism are both aspects of the electromagnetic force, it is possible for Magneto to generate electrical currents (via electromagnetic induction) and to produce electromagnetic radiation of various frequencies. He can also generate an electromagnetic pulse of great strength.
