>So I told Stan to make the new villain he was working on a Holocaust survivor, and he actually did it, the absolute madman!
Claremont and made him a holocaust survivor in Uncanny X-Men #150 (published 1981; art by Dave Cockrum).
the people who run ISIS were those assisted into power by the US in the 70s and 80s and 90s and even 2000s
They'd love your help to overthrow some tyrant or another, but once they fulfill their bloodlust there they turn around and bite the hands that fed them.
It's why Obama decided not to interfere with either side of the Syrian rebellion. Because he pointed out whenever we've influenced anything in that shithole it's come back to burn us.
Later followed up the next year's Uncanny X-Men #161 (Claremont and Cockrum, again). Storytime!
Bob Wiacek's ink's are pretty killer on this page.
Professor Charles Xavier vs. Professional Ethics, round 1 of many.
>I actually used to think that they were get together at some point.
It was teased a couple times during this era - they have some relatively hot chemistry throughout UXM 154.
Surprising how cavalierly Charles outs himself.
>I totally forgot Xavier was a vet.
Yeah, this story must be set sometime in the mid-50s, between Xavier's discharge from the Army and his battle with Lucifer that left him paralyzed.
So no we know where Magnus got the cash to build Asteroid M *and* a secret volcano base in the Savage Land.
And also the story of how David "Legion" Haller was born. Life pro-tip: if you have superweapon-class mental powers, it is *especially important* to not drop a million sperm in crazy mental patients.
Not even close.
1) Zarqawi started out as a small time jihadist opposed to the Jordanian monarchy, a regime that was backed by America and Britain.
2) The Jihadist ideology was manufactured in early 60s Egypt, a time that saw the ruling military regime being against the Western nations and an ally of the Soviet Sphere with modern Jihadism opposed to both capitalism (America) and godless communism (USSR).
3) The Baathists were not American allies until the Iranian Revolution and then that was a necessity of Iran becoming an Islamic State.
Next up, it's 1987's Classic X-Men #12, by Chris Claremont and John Bolton.
Next up, 1988's Classic X-Men #19 brings us a story by Claremont & Kieron Dwye.
How exactly did Magneto go from happy-go-lucky nazi hunter to go-it-alone mutant terrorist? Let's find out in these highly economical 12 pages.
the suggestion, here, is that these headaches are the first sign of Magneto's growing insanity, tied to overuse of his powers.
This is Isabelle, Magneto's lover after Magda and before Lee Forrester and Rogue.
And that's why he works alone and never lets anyone in - allies and lovers are weaknesses that his enemies can use against him.
We're already there. 1944 was over 70 years ago. Even if Magneto was a literal baby at the very end of the war, he's easily in retiree age and not fit to be a world hopping terrorist.
He was de-aged to infancy in Defender #16 (1974) and re-aged to his early 30s by the Shi'ar in Uncanny #104 (1977), so his physical age is about five years older than Scott's. The white hair is natural, like his son Pietro/Quicksilver, not an effect of advanced age.
1987, New Mutants #49 (Claremont & Blevins): Magneto flashes back to the Nazis executing his family.
1991, Uncanny #274 (Claremont & Lee): The same recurring nightmare.
2008, Magneto Testmanet #2 (Greg Pak & Carmine Di Giandomenico): As it happened.
Claremont, not Byrne.
Byrne HATED HATED HATED HATED the "Magneto is a Jewish Holocaust Victim" retcon.
He hated it so much, that one of his big plans for X-Men The Hidden Years was the full-on retconning of the reveal, by way of a story he wrote (but never got published because the book got cancelled) where it would be revealed that Xavier full-on MINDWIPED/REWROTE Magneto's memories to make him THINK he was a Jewish Holocaust survivor, in order to "teach him a lesson about being a bigot".

ISIS is America's fault and I say this as someone who support the Iraq War. We invaded Iraq and in the resulting chaos when they disbanded the Iraqi Army, Al Qaida in Iraq, the predecessor to ISIS came to prominence and power in that vacuum as did an even more extreme jihadist ideology different from the traditional variants. So yes it's absolutely America's fault since we invaded Iraq in the first place and created the conditions for ISIS. ISIS would probably be one of many alphabet soup jihadist groups in Syria if it weren't for their occupied territories in Iraq.
ISIS is Islam's fault, you dumb c.uck
