    Yeah, likewise - Kas just happens to look a lot like Magneto. Seriously, Germans both, Magnitude.... MAGNETO. It was always meant to be.
    Impeach the peach!

      Awesome pic, H&H.
      Love the cape.

      However anybody in my age range will automatically get a villain vibe because of the helmet. I blame Cobra Commander ;~)
      Don't get me wrong, I like the helmet and I don't think it should change.
      But a guy with a cape and a shiny face mask?

      "Say it. Please? Say Coooooooobraaaaaaaaa!"
      ".... This is why you have no friends."*

      *Probably not what Magnitude would actually say.

        Actually, the similarities never occured to me, though Magneto could just as easily be a Czech or Polish Jew as a German one. All I've ever seen defined is that he's Jewish and he got stuck in a concentration camp. That includes a fair number of nationalities.

        Second, all respect to Stan Lee, but Magneto is simply the word Magnet with an "O" slapped on the end or he stole the name from part of an internal combustion engine (used adjunct to or in replacement of a battery if electrical demands are not too great). Magnitude and Direction are Gravitic equations in Newtonian Physics. Since Direction lacks a certain "umph" as a superhero codename, I went with Magnitude.

        You can also calculate Magnitude and Direction in regard to magnetic fields (or any wave or energy field actually), but Stan didn't think of it...I did. So there.

        EDIT> All that being said, I bet freaking Iconoclast and Atlas (r.i.p.) sport similar looks to Kas. Why would they do this? Their powersets are similar (but far superior) and that would just be my luck.

        EDIT EDIT> OMG! The Armada plotline means that somewhere out there, in some alternate dimension, Atlas (or a descendent) may still exist. Urk.

          Whatever Stan Lee's intentions, Magneto lived in Germany as a child, his name is Max, his uncle is Erich-he's Germanic.

          Besides, earth-137 already has a Maneto expy-a whole legacy of them in fact.

          Atlas-I can't remember a detailed description of his appearance. Iconoclast is similar, though he does the exposed face thing, and clearly references Germany with his color scheme. Also, his gloves and boots are gold.

            Yeah...I don't remember Atlas' look either and as for Iconoclast...well, Kas doesn't have to worry too much from that quarter, since Jack put a whuppin' on him.

              Atlas is more of a Graviton expy anyway-with a little bit of Magneto tossed in there. Plus he's tied up in the whole Miss Multiple thing, and then the Chimera bodyswap stuff.

              Iconoclast, the angry failed artist...I think he's still free. Maybe, I'd have to double-check but his last appearance was in the Assault on Laputa when he comes to Jack's aid. After that...I'm fuzzy on it.

                Yeah...Atlas is sort of the "Anti-Magneto", out to destroy all SPB's, so the human race can survive. His powers are gravity based though.

                I think Iconoclast is an Esper, using telekinesis without any bells and whistles. As for his fate? He's probably out there plotting which art museum to destroy next for having failed to recognize his genius.

                  Now you're making me remember Vector from Despicable Me 1 and how he more or less boasted the same thing about his name.

                      Were is a better way to put it as I recall Atlas is pretty much dead as a doornail.

                      Yep, he's an Esper with TK based powers. Last I recall was he giving Jack a helping hand on the flying island then taking off before authorities could show up. Hasn't been heard from since.

                        Yeah...but with alternate dimension Paladin, alternate dimension Viktor, alternate dimension Skew, etc. running around...how long before something really scary shows up.

                          What, you think this one will go from saying the n-word to the speeb-word? Or do you actually expect her to join Crux?

                              Man, I really needed that vacation. Took the girlfriend to a spa for a weekend, my real summer vacation all condensed into (roughly) three days. But now, sadly, back to work (and to see how badly I'm screwed against Paragon).

                              Hey, welcome to the gang Enigmatic One, hope you survive the experience- I mean, welcome!
