In the comics, Magneto fulfilled Charles’ wish and vision by becoming the director of the New Mutants, a role that was defined by numerous disastrous encounters with the Hellfire Club, which led Magneto to abandon his attempts to fulfill Professor X’s wish of the X-Men.

It may even rival his strained relationship with Wolverine from the original animated series. If there is any ambiguity about Magneto’s intentions to inherit Xavier’s school, then Cyclops will probably be his biggest critic.

Jean Grey

Jean Grey will reform Marvel’s mutant X-Men love triangle between Cyclops and Wolverine when she returns in X-Men ’97.
