Magneto Was Right
"Magneto Was Right" is a slogan used to describe the views of Marvel Comics character and X-Men villain, Magneto, namely his extremist position that war is the only way to achieve equality for the fictional mutant race, as opposed to the X-men's pacifist approach. Some fans say Magneto is facetiously, while some genuinely agree in his position, applying it to real-world politics and systems of oppression.
