Erik Magnus's Mother was the mother of Erik Magnus.

She lived in Europe when World War II broke out. As she and her husband were Jewish, Nazi Germany targeted them during the Holocaust.

At some point, Erik ran through war torn buildings looking for his parents but were unable to find them before he was captured by soldiers.

The memory of their deaths prompted Erik to become Magneto. He used his mutant powers to protect other mutants from suffering the same fate as his family.

When Magneto attacked Metro Chemical, Professor X forced him to relieve his memories of trying to find his parents.


Both parents were unnamed, unseen, and unvoiced.

Long after the conclusion of X-Men, her name was revealed to be Edie Eisenhardt.
