    Magneto lost to Thor in the 60's, but after Magneto's resurrection by Eric the Red Magneto's powers took a quantum leap and he could defeat all of the new X-Men including Phoenix. When Magneto faced the Avengers in that SUPER-VILLAIN TEAM-UP (or was it CHAMPIONS?), Magneto hurled Thor, Cap, and Iron Man away. Magneto manhandled Wonder Man. I've seen changes where Magneto can't effect Cap's shield or Iron Man's armor directly, but I'm not sure it would be easy for Thor to drain Magneto since his resurrection by Eric the Red.

It sort of depends. I think a more modern fight between the two would be very different. Originally Thor crushes Magneto, but Magneto has gotten pretty darn tough over the years. Plus various writters tend to forget other things Thor does, the latest Thor writter Matt Faction for instance seems to enjoy ignoring continuity (see thor board post)).

I would still favor Thor in the fight but it would not be pretty at all. The question would come down to what you would expect it too. Can Magneto take Mjolnir away from Thor for any period of time. Sure he could seperate him from it, but the return enchantment vs Magneto. That would be interesting. In terms of power to bring to bear I favor Thor but again not a pretty fight at all. Magneto is a beast.

Look Raist bunnies...
