Why does Magneto look so young?

Have we gotten an actual in comic explanation for how a man at least in his 70s retains such youth and vigor. He's one of the few characters the whole sliding timeline thing doesn't really work for.

He was de-aged at one point, it was actually a story arc. They don't address it in current comics but yea he's now in his 30's to 40's physically I forget which

@Onemoreposter: he was de-aged by kang the conqueror at one point, another time by science- another time because of the high evolutionary

Out of all the people why de-age Magneto?

@0blivion_: Kang did it, as a deal, youth to stop his enemies

Science, i dunno who or why they choose him

High Ev, for another deal i forget

They do similar things with any "era related character" e.g. Xavier plays a vital role in Magnetos history as they have been best friends over the years and very close in age, I believe Xavier was cloned into a younger body

Maybe it's Maybelline. 
 
Probably photoshop. We all know what these big fancy, famous superhero/supervillian types are like. I heard that if Captain America gets served any MnM's that aren't red or blue he starts decapitating mofo's with his shield then they digital software to edit out the blood and add Hydra insignias to all those he viciously murderrated.

Hes had some work done in hollywood but kept it a secret and disguised it as going to rehab, because Rouge just wasnt into anyone old enough to be her father.

He's actually been de aged several times, and Professor X looks younger than he is do to his mind being transferred into a cloned body

When was this/ and when did Xavier get his powers back after M-Day?

@fACEmelter88: Xavier got given a new body a long time ago, basically he traded places with a shape shifter for a bit faked his death, went and hung out with the shi'ar for a while then came back in a new body

I don't think Magneto has ever encountered Kang, and I believe the High Evolutionary just repowered him, though I suppose it's possible there was some rejuvenation thrown in. He was reverted to infancy, alongside the rest of the then-members of the Brotherhood (Blob, Mastermind, Lorelei and Unus) by Alpha the UItimate Mutant after Alpha determined them to be evil. Eric the Red later restored Magneto, and, unintentionally, the others, but since he wanted to set Magneto on the X-Men, Eric restored him to his prime, rather than his full age.

Xavier did have Changeling cover his absence while he prepared to fight the Z'nox, and Changeling did die (not an attempt to fake Xavier's death, just something that happened while Changeling was substituting for Xavier), but that had nothing to do with Xavier's new body, and only the most peripheral involvement with him later hanging out with the Shi'ar. Xavier's telepathic defeat of the Z'nox had a side effect of putting him contact with Lilandra, which subsequently led to him going off into space with her for a while. However, much later, after he had returned home, a Brood Queen implanted an egg in Xavier; when it hatched, it consumed Xavier's body, turning it into a new Brood Queen, but Xavier's mind managed to wrest control back. The Starjammers then cloned him a new (and younger) body, and the Starjammer physician, Sikorsky, transplanted Xavier's brain across.

Prof X got his powers back after M-Day during Brubaker's Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire in Uncanny X-Men. He was thrown into the M'Kraan Crystal which restored his powers.
