Bad guys have all the fun, and at top of that carnival of carnage list, you’ll find superhero movie villains enjoying some nemesis cotton candy. We’re pitting two such baddies against one another today, to see who will come out on top, as we go helmeted head to metal head in Friday Fight Club!
First, this all Richards fault. Secondly, you’d imagine that ol’ Victor Von Doom would be at a disadvantage here, seeing as how he wears metal armour and all that jazz. But you’d be wrong. This is Dr Doom that we’re talking about here, a man fueled by hate, genius and Latverian science. How long do you think it would take the master of evil to set off an EMP pulse and fry Maggy boy the second he tries to puppeteer him?
Second, he’s a walking dynamo of electricity, the polar opposite of magnetism, and granted, while Magneto could drop a bridge on him, he needs to stand still to concetrate on lifting the damn thing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Doom had some rocket-boots hidden in his armour. A decrepit old mutant going toe to toe with a scietific genius that can take the Fantastic Four on fight them to a standstill? The outcome of this match has already been decided.
Also, it’s all Richards fault. RIIIIIIIIIICHARDS!
Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh!
Oh, wait. You’re actually serious about this. Well then…
Let’s just get straight to the obvious and not waste any time: Magneto is a man that kill you with the fillings in your teeth from a mile away, so showing up with all the squishy bits in your head wrapped up in metal is probably not going to go down so well for ol’ Victor.
And yes, Doom may be able to science up some doohickey to affect Magneto’s powers, but he’d actually have to get into a position to use it first, and as Mags has shown plenty plenty of times before, he’s always one step ahead of everybody else. I guess he picked up those tactical survival skills when he, you know, only survived the horrors of the Nazi war machine. No biggie.
Oh and did I mention that he can turn you into a human sieve with nothing but a ball bearing?
Some entitled ex-pretty boy with a wardrobe malfunction and a penchant for blaming others should be a walkover. Now where was I? Oh, yes…
Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh!

It’s gotta be Magneto.
He’s some science. He may be evil against humans, but he’s doing what he believes is right for his kind, never mind the impact it has on anyone else. Dr Doom is just a bad guy to everyone! Thus, using the law of comic books and such, the good guy wins, 99% of the time, and thus Magneto has more good in him than Doom (even if you argue it’s still 1% more, that’s still more).
Plus, just looking at the films, Michael Fassbender and Sir Ian McKellen are way more badass (even on their own) than Julian McMahon

My vote: Magneto

Magneto. After years of contemplation I have also decided that his is the superpower that I would want. I would be invincible.
Don’t get me started.

I’ll vote for Doom. He has the cooler costume. Magneto always struck me as some sad, old has-been rebel leader who lives in a tent and hasn’t changed his underwear in a week.
