Might start busting comic book “facts” that I see here on Instagram. This comes from @geekfacts
and not only does it not provide a source, but it also assumes Stan Lee is a credible source of comics history when he is not. If we look at X-Men #1
, it’s clear that Magneto was simply a cookie-cutter villain. He wasn’t responding to “mutant racism” at all. He even attacked the X-Men (fellow mutants) mercilessly. Hopefully, this also debunks the false idea that Magneto was based off Malcolm X. He wasn’t. He was originally just a generic villain.
Anyway, let me know if you want to see me debunk more of these. There’s plenty of false “facts” on Instagram, haha!
