Film Theory: How to KILL X-Men’s Magneto!


Forget IP ownership and movie rights and all that legal nonsense There’s one reason and one [reason] only the x-men universe has to stay separate from the rest of Marvel’s properties because you know Magneto would have his way with anyone named iron man Quickest battle ever Hello, internet Welcome to film theory the show that’s calling out the film industry [for] a serious lack [of] imagination in their posters this year Batman V Superman Civil [war] Neighbors [to] Noticing a pattern here guys and sure the trend nowadays is to just slap two superheroes together and have them duke it out the x-Men Have been doing that for well over a decade These mutants never got along come on wolverine you don’t have to punch deadpool in the face Hey [a] jean grey would be great if you didn’t disintegrate Cyclops all right Charles [Eric] can the two of you act like adults and not try to kill each other for just one movie? No, no not even once and it ain’t stopping anytime soon either since there’s another mutant war on the Horizon in x-Men apocalypse [so] knowing that it’s high time [we] start looking into the powers of these extra normal humans and prep some Strategies for how to handle some of the Franchise’s heaviest hitters and who better to start with than Magneto [I] mean when I was a wee Eight-year-old educating my classmates on the proper hand hand traction for swinging on the monkey bars There was only one thing I wanted to be a mutant sign me up for xavier school for gifted Youngsters Aka American Hogwarts teach me how to throw a car with my mind or shoot laser beams out of my eyes or freeze a pencil in thin Air you know practical everyday Useful stuff or at least as useful as I found calculus to be in my everyday life But amongst all the awesome mutants and awesome powers there is one who stood out from the rest the most awesome one of all Magneto and yeah, yeah flame or in the comments All you Wolverine fans, please snikt away your retractable claws and get honest with yourselves for a moment Wolverine is great Don’t get me wrong But can he stop a bullet in Midair can he lift a car without even touching it head he? fly I don’t [think] so, you know who can Magneto and probably storm [two] She could probably do those things jean along with a few others in the x-men universe since those sorts of powers aren’t really that rare To come by that just makes Wolverines inability to do them all the more unacceptable But will be rants aside when you really look at it the story of the x-Men movies for the last 15 years has truly been the story of [Magneto] his relationship with professor x and yet in writing this episode I was disillusioned because for his grandiose as he talks and his powerful as he seems when you get right [down] to it Magneto is one of the most vulnerable mutants in all of these films the guy’s a glass cannon powerful But fragile and his biggest weakness [one] that you could use to take him down yourself is one that you probably Wouldn’t expect now to truly appreciate Magneto’s one fatal flaw we have to first understand just how he does what he does What makes the guy tick the source behind all his powers? Magnets who would have ever guessed but for as simple as that explanation is there’s actually a lot [more] to it than that no I’m gonna guess that the elementary teacher who had you play with horseshoe magnets and [paperclips] in school didn’t tell you that there are actually? six different types of Magnetic Force Six they you’ll be looking at those refrigerator magnets in a whole new way now the six different types are diamagnetism paramagnetism ferromagnetism [antiferromagnetism] [Faerie] Magnetism and Super Para magnetism of those the type we’re almost familiar with is Ferro Magnetism this type occurs when an object’s electrons all point the same way attracting materials to it It’s the strongest and most easy to identify type of magnetism and yet it only works on items Consisting of iron Nickel Cobalt their alloys and a few other naturally occurring minerals. It’s actually really easy to remember ferromagnetic from the Word Ferrous meaning containing iron think back to the periodic table We were all confused why fe stood for iron right well? Ferro Gotta love those ancient root words and seriously think back to those classroom experiments you did when you were in first grade a magnet could Pick up a paperclip largely comprised of iron, but could pick up your pencil made of wood so simple stuff I know But I [gotta] make sure that you guys stick with this episode Stick with it Like a magnet all right now while I could take you through the other five types of magnetism after looking through all the x-Men films Magneto seems not to be the master of [Magnetism] so much as he is the master of Ferro Magnetism since every single Thing that Magneto lifts seems like it would have traces of iron Nickel Cobalt or an alloy the Golden Gate bridge Which Magneto lifts in x-men the last [stand] the main Towers and suspended structures are made of steel the ballistic missiles Magneto stops in x-Men? First class shells made of steel the rFK baseball stadium he lifts in days of future past Constructed from a base of [steel] even Wolverine throughout the x-Men films we see Magneto constantly bending and manipulating Wolverines claws Seriously, it’s almost like a running joke the number of times they’ve used this trick and yet We as the movie-going audience are always like oh He’s totally schooling Wolverine as though. We didn’t just see it in like the last 30 movies We get it his skeleton is metal all right find a new way to beat the guy anyway per Marvel or [Wolvie] Skeleton claws Included are made of adamantium which despite being a fictional metal is a very dense Artificial iron based alloy according to Canon even fake metals have iron in them so in short You can think of Magneto as a permanent magnet attracting and controlling specific types of materials this would explain why an x [-] x-Men united when Magneto’s held in the Plastic cell he’s rendered completely Powerless in order to Escape the cell mystique [has] to inject a prison guard with none other than iron when the prison guard has extra Iron running through him Magneto is able to lift a man and extract the iron from his body much the same way A Permanent Magnet does in retrospect, that’s a silly sentence that would imply that permanent Magnets on the regular Lifts humans often extract iron from them gives Magnets a weird Evil intent that I didn’t anticipate, but just how strong of a magnet is he well the biggest feat We see him perform across all the movies is that aforementioned Golden gate bridge scene from last [Stan] a structure weighing 887 Thousand Tons, or 804 million kilograms based on the bridges weight and the magnetic strength required to generate enough lift to levitate other much smaller objects we were able to calculate that the strength of Magneto’s Magnetic field would be in the range of 100 million Tesla a Magnetic Force that can only be found in Neutron Stars by comparison You know what the strongest magnet we have on Earth is a hundred Tesla [100] oh yeah, and by the way hashtag not spawn by Tesla the car companies just that Nikola Tesla Did all Sorts of cool stuff [in] short Magneto is 1? Million times stronger than any magnet we’ve been able to produce here on Earth. That’s insane How do you stop a juggernaut like that on the geminal pitch? That’s a whole lot [easier] than you think bullets seriously you just shoot him remember Magneto is ferromagnetic So not all metal is under his control and bullets by and large are made with a lead core in case with a copper jacket [both] of which are non-Magnetic materials which means Magneto should have no more control over a bullet than he would the Plastic cell from x 2 or even a plastic water bottle for that matter if you watch the series with this knowledge You’ll notice that throughout the x-men films Magneto shows very little success at stopping bullets in the famously awesome Quicksilver time in a bottle sequence Magneto has complete control over all [the] kitchen utensils but it’s up to Quicksilver to deflect the bullets and save Erik and Charles’s life and then at the end of days of future passed Mystique shoots Magneto in the neck the movie makes it seem like this [is] because Magneto’s distracted by the sentinel but in truth It’s because his magnetic powers don’t extend to bullets now. I can totally see you being skeptical about this What about that awesome scene from the first x-men movie where Magneto is surrounded by the police officers? I hear you saying he stops a bullet right [there], and yeah, you’re right. He does stop a bullet in that scene let’s pick it apart shall we Magneto starts the scene by turning each of the officers guns against them and this falls well under the Purview of his powers as most guns are made from aluminum and steel so no big surprise and a really cool really intense image But then Magneto fires one of the guns and stops the bullet Itself at the base [of] the officers forehead if what I’m saying is true, [and] he can’t control bullets. How’s this work? Well my first impulse was to say that this bullet must be what’s known as a full metal jacket Bullet and no I’m not talking about a transmuting anime bullet or an 80s cinema classic bullet But a lead bullet jacketed and steel to allow for higher Velocity shooting if this were the case it would [be] easy for Magneto to control except that we get a good look [at] that bullet Spinning in Midair and it doesn’t have the long more Aerodynamic shape of a full metal bullets further complicating [the] situation is [that] in the late 90s several major cities in the us including? New York setting for the scene stopped using full metal jacketed bullets in favor of Hollow point [Hst] [Mu] [Ition] Bullets designed to Expand once they hit the intent is to cause a high level of damage immediately around the entry point which disables the targets these HsT bullets tend to be shorter and rounder and are jacketed not with steel But with copper a non-Ferrous almost completely non Ferromagnetic metal meaning that in the real world the bullets carried by the majority of major us cities would be totally unaffected by Magneto’s powers In other words, they would definitely pose a threat to him, but they wouldn’t explain this situation at all So what’s going on here am I completely off the mark in my analysis of Magneto’s powers? [oh], no, watch the seat again first notice the shape of the bullet shorter and more rounded so it’s definitely our hST [bullet] But notice the color of the bullet silver and not yellow orange like copper also It’s important to note that this standoff is happening at night these two facts are essential because law enforcement agencies have reported That in [Low-light] low velocity shooting situations They’ll use special nickel casings for their hollow-point ammo nickel a metal that’s completely susceptible to ferromagnetism, and that is exactly what we’re seeing need more evidence tangents of the fact that Magneto doesn’t fire at every officer surrounding him he only fires this one particular Bullet why he carefully searches his surroundings almost as if he’s looking for the right gun to fire the one out [of] the dozens that Doesn’t have lead in Copper Bullets for instance He doesn’t fire a shotgun shell because shotgun shells often contain a mix of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. No he specifically selects the bullet He can control and if you think I’m reading too much into it don’t trust me trust him Magneto himself admits to it I don’t think I can stop them all he’s not talking about the number [of] bullets. He would be firing remember This is the guy who can lift the golden gate bridge and catch dozens of Missiles in Midair [he] honestly can’t stop them all his powers won’t allow it so in the end the master of Magnetism [a] mutant with power levels rivaling that of a neutron star my Favorite growing up in a man who can rip apart? bridges with a flick of the wrist can be brought down by [A] Simple Bullet Just like you or me what he’s been able to do is fool everyone into thinking [that] he can control bullets when the vast majority Of them pose huge threat to him forget adamantium blades and laser eyes sometimes the most Effective weapon is the simplest I guess giving Wolverine a hard time about not being able to stop bullets in Midair was a bit premature [but] hey, that’s just a theory a film theory and Cut and hey if you enjoyed this episode and are excited [for] more x-men apocalypse action click right here to check [out] my buddies over at the Wisecrack channel and their recent video all about the philosophy of the X-Men series the annotation works on mobile desktop tablet you name it so [go] ahead click it watch their video you have no excuse now or if you’re interested [in] learning how to Take down Wolverine I cover that exact subject in my deadpool episode because the two actually share the exact same Weakness click right here to check that one out and now if you’ll excuse [me]. I need a little break from superheroes I hear there’s some pixar movies coming out in the near future and some lies that need to be exposed. See you next time

  1. In the comics, iron Man beat magneto, because his suit isn't actually made of iron, it's made of "modified ceramics"

    That's in avengers versus x-men's battle on Utopia

  2. No one:

    literally No one:

    Not a living soul:

    Film theory: he can stop bullet's in mid air

    also film theory: SHOOT HIM SHOOT HIM

  3. Always thought the bowls for plastic like the guns are not plastic but some kind of plastic like material he can’t bend or move

  4. I wonder if someone held like a huge magnet over magneto if his magnetic field would make him self stick to it like he is some kind of paper clip or something

  5. if you say he can get killed by a normal bullet that is iron silver or cobalt but why can he lift adamantium, its a whole new type of metal stronger than anything he literally bends it and adamantium doesn't exist and you say he is a common magnet you are wrong if he can bend special metal why cant he stop any normal bullet, that doesn't just make any sense at all

  6. No dumbass. Magneto stop bullets in both the movies and comics all the time with ease. The scenes you are referring to, they are using PLASTIC bullets. You suck ass at theories.

  7. In the scene where he gets shot in the neck and when they’re in the kitchen those bullets are plastic. So I think you’re wrong

  8. Ahhh if you look closer at the bullet in the guys forehead, part of it is squishing into his brow and it looks copper like. There rest in metal, so this would make it a FMJ bullet.

  9. 👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅👅🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻👾👾👾👾👾👾👾👾👾👾👾💂🏻‍♂️🧞‍♂️🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬**&&$$##&[email protected]#@&[email protected]$#@$##@$#$&#$#&#$#&#$#&#[email protected]$#$&#$$##&#$#&#&%%%%%$$#[email protected]##&#%

  10. NO YOU WRONG!!!! iron man is not magnetic tony say himself its not i it gold-titanium alloy neither gold or titanium is ferromagnetic

  11. Those plastic guns, Their bullets are made of fiber glass. That's how magneto can't stop those bullets. But he can stop bullets made from aluminum by creating a magnetic force fields

  12. but matpat…. iron man's suit is not complete Iron…… Also, magneto is a dope. (who else watched x-men animated and wanted to join Xavier's school?)

  13. Server problems with that Mattis that he can't remember which won't be able to do if he come move them at all since he can't curve plastics Quicksilver wasn't able to do that whole scene before anyone was able to react and most important magneto was shot with a fictional glass/plastic bullet from a glass/plastic gun

  14. All wolverine fans ya wolverine cant do all of that stuff but can magneto can….. heal have nife in his hands looks cool

  15. Stupid video. Magneto can controll ALL metals. Who cares how.. Its all a fantasy anyway. And he can be easaly killed by anything non-metalic.

  16. At the very start of the episode MatPat says that Magneto can stop bullets and then he starts talking about how bullets are his weakness. WTF?

  17. Do one about the injection that weakens the mutations in X-Men mutations, but with Charles Xavier, took his telepath abilities, but gave him his legs!

  18. 2:16 good points but can magneto take a nuke,can magneto taking a sword to the heart, can magneto regeneration in 5 seconds, I think I I’ve proved my point wolverine is better

  19. I really feel like since iron man and magneto reside in the same universe that Ironman would have a clause suit to go head to toe with magneto that would render his metal powers useless against him say I’m wrong but that goes along with iron mans character

  20. Iron is like a binding agent for almost every metal it allows us to see the metal like gold in its purest form we couldn’t wear it as jewelry because it’s so soft it wouldn’t hold its shape so there’s iron in it

  21. Anyone with the power to create heat can defeat Magneto. Magnets loose their polarity when heated. That's probably why he was so determined to recruit Piro and Jean Grey for her Phoenix.
