- In the recent comics, Magneto is no longer the father of Quicksilver and Scarlet Wicth after the AXIS event. Many believe this is due to his children's film rights being owned by Marvel while he is owned by Fox.
- In the Fox X-Men films, he has been portrayed by Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassenbender.
- In the X-Men comics and TV shows, he has sometimes collaborated with Professor X but mostly spars with him.
