Magnetic Man was a man who, after a couple successful bank robberies, was caught by Spider-man and put in jail for six years. Six years later, he got out of jail for good behavior but found out how hard life was being away from your family for six years. He now didn't know much about the evolution of technology around him, or about his own daughter! No one would hire him either due to his criminal record, so he decided to turn back to a life of crime for one last heist to pay the bills for his home.


Magnetic Man was created by Frank Tieri and Javier Rodriguez as a back up story to Amazing Spider-man #662.
