Welcome to With Great Chutzpah Comes Great Responsibility, your every other week dose of Jewish comic awesomeness.
Today, we are going to cherish the wisdom of Max Eisenhardt, a.k.a Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, a.k.a the greatest hero of all time, MAGNETO! Magneto is the embodiment of Chutzpah. You may not agree with his methods, but you cannot deny his passion. If you believe he is a “super-villain,” you are probably an anti-mutant biggot whose opinion is useless to us anyways. Magneto fights a righteous battle with love- love for his fellow mutants. He has seen his Jewish brothers and sisters oppressed and murdered, and will not allow it to happen to mutants next. ”Never again” is his motto.
In honor of Magneto getting his own solo series (the first issue dropped today), we are going to look at the top ten best Magneto quotes. While you read this list, I want you to ask yourself, is Magneto right? (Of course, the only correct answer to that question is “yes.”)
Top 10 Best Magneto Quotes
“So… in effect, you swapped 5,000 human lives for one mutant one. That’s regrettable. But when there’s less than 200 mutants on the planet, I can live with that.”
