Fatal Attractions | Comics

Fabian Cortez, the new leader of The Acolytes, attacks on the headquarters of “Project: Wideawake”, a recently developed sentinel program funded by the government at Camp Hayden. The government sponsored mutant super team of X-Factor intervenes and engages The Acolytes there. During the battle between these two teams, Quicksilver is approached by Cortez to be the new leader of the Acolytes as Magneto's rightful heir, to which Quicksilver declines.

Meanwhile, Exodus shows up to Cable's X-Force team to offer them all sanctuary from a mysterious greater power. Exodus in fact came to offer them shelter to Avalon, which was Cable's former headquarter Graymalkin in the past and the mysterious person with greater power is none other than a previously thought-dead Magneto himself, who has taken over the base and upgraded it with Shi'ar technology. Before teleporting with X-Force from Avalon, Cable nearly escapes death from the hands of the mutant master of magnetism.

Along with his team of Acolytes, Magneto came to meet the X-Men at Westchester during the funeral for Colossus' sister Illyana Rasputin, who died of the Legacy Virus that has crippled the entire mutant community for some time. After a brief fight between the X-Men and the Acolytes, Colossus switched his alliance with Magneto as he has lost his faith in the ways of Xavier and the X-Men.

Professor Xavier led the team of Jean Grey, Gambit, Quicksilver, Rogue and Wolverine to Avalon after Magneto unleashes an electromagnetic pulse causing havoc to Earth's entire electrical system, as an answer to "Magneto Protocols" by UN. After getting stabbed by Wolverine in battle, an enraged Magneto forcibly tore out the Adamantium out of Wolverine's body that led him to a near death experience as he was unable to heal himself from major injuries.

This sudden act of violence made Professor X snap and he mind-wipes Magneto in retaliation, leaving him into a vegetative state on Avalon. The X-Men took Wolverine back to their base for treatment as he was being unable to regenerate himself and Colossus left behind to look after Magneto.

Outnumbered and outgunned, all of them are quickly teleported to Genosha and they learns that X-Factor's former ally Cameron Hodge was the one who orchestrated this attack.

Realizing this, Warlock uses his last bit of energies to help liberate his friends out of their captivity.

Wolfsbane returns back to help him out of this mess but was unable to finally save his life. The remaining X-Men and X-Factor members assembles to rescue their abducted teammates in Genosha under the lead of Cable, his New Mutants, Gambit, Forge and Banshee, as they are the final hope for their comrades to their freedom from captivity. On their way, they are joined by their friends Wolverine, Psylocke and Jubilee to the same cause.

His entire clan was captured by the Grand Vizier Ozymandias and he ended up being killed for rebellion. It was the first time when his mutant power was discovered when he was revived by it. He forced the then ruling Egyptian Pharaoh Rama-Tut to retreat and turned Ozymandias as his slave in a stone-like form. Thus the new era of "The First One" has begun.

Over the century-wide period of time, he appeared in various civilizations, being worshiped by many cultures as Death-God, died and re-generated but he focused on conquering world. He got his hands on an abandoned spaceship of the Celestials and the key to unlock its technology becomes his obsession. He eventually finds it in time-traveling mutant Cable which follows to a fatal consequence for him. Nur resurfaced again in the modern century and was opposed by X-Factor and X-Men.

In time, he recruited Angel, Gambit and Wolverine as Horsemen of Death. Once he also abducted Hulk to be Horseman War. Namor, the Submariner has battled him on one occasion and following his choosing of "The Twelve" met his untimely demise. During "World War Hate" he manifested through Evan Sabahnur and fought The Avengers.
