5 Greatest Comic Book Villains On The Big Screen
Magneto is the leader of the Brotherhood of Mutants. He believes his species should dominate Earth, having witnessed decades of mankind's atrocities.
Magneto isn't just a great comic book villain -- he's one of the great villains in all of modern fiction. The greatest bad guys are the ones who don't think they're bad at all. Magneto sees himself as a heroic revolutionary fighting for the future of his people. The character of Magneto has such gravitas that you can't help but feel your loyalties shift.
