In the Mutant X reality, Magneto embraced the ideals of Charles Xavier after they became friends in Israel. They formed the X-Men together and Magneto fell in love with Moira MacTaggert. However, when Magnus and Xavier faced the Shadow King together, the telepath absorbed the evil psychic entity. Afterwards, Xavier was a changed man and, when he inadvertently killed Moira with a psionic blast aimed at the Juggernaut, it drove a deep wedge between the former friends. Magneto assumed full control of the X-Men, which prompted several members to leave the group and form the team called the Six. Those who remained loyal to Magneto were his children, Polaris and Quicksilver, as well as Nightcrawler, Rogue and Mystique, with the Scarlet Witch as an ally rather than an actual member. Years later, though the X-Men and the Six would reunite to combine their efforts in fighting such threats as the Goblyn Queen, the Beyonder and Dracula. Most of Earth's champions were killed in the ensuing battle including most of the X-Men. Erik was among the handful who survived and helped to defeat Dracula and liberate Madelyne Pryor from the influence of the Goblyn Force.
