Magneto's X suit was made with ballistic nylon, dark-blue leather and a yellow Kevlar-like material. "His is the simplest suit because he needs the least protection. No one dares to go near Magneto."

The Fox executives handled Euro releases of "X-Men: First Class” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”
