Synopsis for "A Fire in the Sky"Edit
Magneto is sleeping inside of a hotel room in France. He is beset by nightmares of his teenage years when he was a prisoner in Auschwitz. He is reminded of his early years with his gypsy wife Magda, and their young daughter Anya. We see his mutant powers first emerge in the Ukraine when a group of villagers prevented Magnus from saving his daughter from a hotel fire. He kills the villagers out of revenge.
