Magneto's power

...can it be used to sort of mind control machines? I know he likes to crush them; but would he be able to control them as his pawns?

Well, Magneto was able to assemble highly complex machinery in a matter of seconds in Uncanny X-men #150.

@Edamame: no not assemble, but control an already assembled one. I mean a master of magnetism shouldn't be just about breaking magnetic bonds; he should be able to bend them to his will. For example, he should be able to use Sentinels as puppets and him being the marionette. Has he ever done anything like this?

Yes. Uncanny X-Men 500 is a recent example of this.

He's done it numerous times. Reprogram robots and such, I don't think it works on sentient machines like complex androids such as the Vision and such though.

@John Valentine: I don't mean create a robot himself, I mean take over other people's creations or other people. Like would he be able to control Cyborg or maybe the Bat Sentry from Kingdom Come? Not mind control, but physical control. Like Cyborg will try to fight his hand from moving or something.

I think he can do that with even people. I have to find the exact issue but i know he yanked Fabians body from 50 miles away and brought it to where he was crashing down on the ground killing him. I know he can do this by controlling the iron in their blood but i'm sure there are multiple ways he can accomplish this.
