X-Men Wiki

Magnetism manipulation (also called Magnetokinesis)‎ is the ability to control and/or generate electromagnetic fields, giving the user control over the electromagnetic sprectrum and various magnetic metals.

Magneto, the master of Magnetism

  • Electromagnetic Sight: The ability to perceive the surrounding environment as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy. The natural magnetic auras surrounding living beings can also be seen in this way.
  • Energy Absorption: The ability to absorb different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum via magnetic force to temporarily boost the user’s own strengths.
  • Geomagnetic Link: Since most users of this power are tied very closely to Earth's EM Field, they are highly sensitive any changes that it might undergo. This link also means that Earth lends them strength by its simple existence, and as a result they are granted an odd sort of immortality.
  • Magnetic Flight: The ability to fly by either gliding along the planet's natural magnetic lines of force or simply creating a repulsive force between the user(s) and the planet.
  • Magnetic Force-Fields: The ability to erect a powerful force field that can be quickly expanded to protect large areas, or even used to suspend objects in the air.
  • Magnetic Pulse: The ability to focus magnetic energy into powerful concussive blasts for various purposes.
  • Metallic Bonding: The power to atomically bond metallic substances to any designated surface material. This technique allows metallic alloys to be blended with the earth, water, and air.
  • Organic Iron Manipulation: The ability to control the traces of iron within organic matter, which allows full control over an opponent's body. This power can manipulate the iron-enriched blood-flow to one's brain to induce aneurysms or unconsciousness, alter thoughts and perceptions, or blank a person's mind completely. It can even remove ferrous compounds from the bloodstream entirely through a person's skin.
  • Superhuman Stamina: By drawing on Earth’s magnetic field, a user can dramatically increase the overall efficiency of his/her musculature. While enhanced in this way, the muscles produce considerably less fatigue toxins than the musculature of a normal human, allowing for far greater endurance during physical activity.
  • Superhuman Strength: The vast amounts of magnetic energy contained in Earth’s EM field can be channeled through the body for the purpose of granting vast superhuman strength of undefined limits.
  • Telepathic Resistance: The ability to create powerful electromagnetic shields around the user to block out or dampen attacks or mind probes from telekinetic or telepathic mutants.
