The Part 2 of 5 wiki last edited by pikahyper on 08/14/13 01:39AM View full history

The definitive origin story of one of Marvel's greatest icons continues as young Magneto, a Jewish boy in Hitler's Germany, travels to Berlin with his father in a desperate attempt to secure protection from the Nazi menace. What new rules and skills must father and son learn to survive in this insane new world? And will those lessons be enough to save their family on the Night of Broken Glass?

It is 1936 and young Max (Magneto) struggles in Germany as the Nazi regime rises to power. Max and his father can no longer ride on trains, attend certain events, or talk to certain people because of their Jewish heritage. Max refuses to give in and even stands up for himself against those who have taken sides with the Nazis.

Max wakes up in the middle of the night to see military men breaking into houses a beating the Jewish inhabitants. Max takes his family out of the house and sees the temple being burned to the ground. Jewish stores are looted, and those who own them are forced to sell the businesses at an unfair price. Max and his family escape to Poland, only to find out that the Germans have invaded. The Polish army, which at the time were lancers on horseback, are forced to face an unmentionable force, German tanks.
